Calendar Uppers

Standard Uppers

An upper is the space above the imprint on the backer (which is the last page of the calendar). We have three different uppers that are on your calendars. The upper depends on your calendar choice. Check out all three below — to enlarge the image, click on it.

Pre-Need and Custom Uppers

Whether you want to put a pre-need card on the upper, or if there are important dates for your church that need to be on there, we can do that! We offer specialty uppers as well. If you have a design you love, send it over. Otherwise, our fantastic design team is happy to help you get precisely what you want.

Pre-Need Upper

Our single-sided pre-need upper is a successful marketing tool for funeral directors to advertise their preplanning funeral services. It is printed in place of the standard upper. It has a reply card available for the recipient to cut out, address, and mail to the funeral establishment.

Pre-Need Upper

Custom Upper

A custom upper is printed in place of the standard upper on the backer. It is a creative option to accommodate and display several advertisers, special church events, or other special custom needs.
