Great for my needs - read product description!
on May 31, 2013
I'm writing a review for this mostly because those who left negative reviews don't seem to have read the product description, or the box that the calendar came in, so I figured it could use another positive review. This is a wall decal! Meaning you peel off the paper backing and stick it to the wall. It isn't a "laminated" paper calendar. If you're trying to smooth the bubbles out of it without removing the backing first, you're using it wrong.
That being said, the calendar is great! It's repositionable, can be used on a wall, the fridge, or any other flat, untextured surface. I have it on the office door. Any bumps can be smoothed out with a credit card or other "squeegee" type item (start from the middle and work outward). Comes with a dry erase pen with an eraser and a holder that can be stuck on the wall (mine is on the door frame, not the door, so it won't fall off from repeatedly opening and closing the door).
Gave it four stars instead of five just because it's PVC and has that weird chemically vinyl off-gassing smell. Don't lean in and breathe deeply, those phthalates aren't good for you (always give me a little tickle in my throat)!
