Google - there's hundreds of companies that can print them for you. Marketing them is all up to you to find who would want to buy/sell (i.e. distribute) them.

I make calendars for the 7 neighbors in our little (remote) valley every year. (it's gorgeous back here). .. anyway, I usually use lulu.com .. but this year I'm trying Vistaprint.com . They just had a 50% off special. (might still be on, I don't know)

Moo doesn't do calendars. They told me they're thinking about it.

We got some calendars printed up this year for our family members from lulu.com. The quality was ok. We went with the cheapest option, so I'm sure that's a reason why. Next time we are going to upgrade to the premium calendar and see if they are better. Overall the site did a great job and the site itself is extremely easy to use.

It's 100lbs paper so the paper isn't the issue. I also went with the standard but mine turned out great; even with one or two lack luster pictures. Standard calendar is $12.49 for you to print one and they have discounts for the more you purchase. Overall I've been pleased with them. The one thing they really need to work on is the "author spotlight" which is the storefornt. It's like pulling teeth trying to find it if you want it. The customer support was wonderful though getting me to the hidden stuff.
