At the start of the year we all get wall calendars. Some are quite
costly because they have nice artwork on them. They come pre-punched
with one hole in the middle. We pound a small nail or brad in the
wall and stick the single calendar hole on that nail. The calendar
Summer comes, the humidity sets in, and the top corners of the
calendar curl toward the center. Soon, the artwork on the calendar
cant be viewed at all. The thing looks ugly, and on some calendars,
you have to uncurl it to see the date.
I dont know about anyone else, but I find this extremely annoying and
irritating. The options seem to include either getting a small but
strong hole punch, and punching two new holes near each corner. or
simply driving nails thru the whole calendar near the top corners, and
every month having to poke a new hole in the new page.
I tried paper clips, they seemed to help, but sooner or later the
whole shebang would curl.
I am looking for suggestions that others have used to solve this
problem. I did consider building a frame of sorts with a glass or
plastic cover, that opens on hinges, but I have never been that
ambitious to build one.
I am NOT looking for tips about changing the air in my house. I know
that a dehumidifier would help, but I prefer fresh outdoor air in
summer, and for the record, I have had the calendars curl in winter
when I run a humidifier, which I need for health reasons.
Anyone have any useful tips?
