About Us

We are the UK’s largest publisher and distributor of calendars.

Carousel Calendars was formed when the Otter House Group combined the considerable experience of Jarrolds Calendars and Infocado with the Otter House calendar department. The acquisition brought together some of the industry’s strongest licensed and generic titles, creating an unbeatable range of calendars for the UK retail sector.

We are now the UK’s largest and most diversified calendar publishing business. Carousel Calendars operates out of the head office in Exeter, with its own studio and production teams, situated right on top of its own purpose-built distribution centre. 

We publish our own range of over 700 calendars and diaries, with new titles added every year. These are combined with the best titles from other publishers to create a unique curated collection of products for our customers, which are featured in our catalogue, The Great Big Calendar Collection. We have seen excellent growth over the past few years and continue to enjoy successful partnerships with our suppliers, retailers and licensors.

We offer a huge selection of licensed, bespoke and generic designs, plus sales and sales admin capability, offering the
complete calendar service.

We are also growing in terms of export publishing and distribution, offering many of our titles to international customers and retailers, along with working with brands and publishers around the world to create bespoke products. We are now able to offer over 400 diverse products to retailers overseas — browse through our Export Catalogue to see them all.

Sustainability and our impact on the environment is of utmost importance to us, and we know it is equally so for the retailers that we supply for, the brands and charities that we work with, and the customers that purchase our products. As such, we have been working hard on lowering our emissions as a company, and introducing new ways to reduce the use of plastics in the items we produce. This is alongside our use of FSC paper and our increase in using materials that can be recycled. Read more about What We Care About.
