Question: Is there a way to "plug the hole" on a Calendar Page ?
Answer: See my suggestion at the bottom of this page.
Important Note # 1: There are triangular indentations ( not a full crease, just a moderately deep bend ) about 3/4" long in the bottom left corner and the bottom right cornerof this Calendar Page. I did not try to un-indent it. In my opinion, it seems like you can probably minimize or eliminate itby placing a little bit of light cardboard behind it when you frame it.
Important Note # 2: In my opinion, the photo of this scenelooksblurry to me. You are encouraged to Zoom In on the photo to judge foryourself.
Important Note # 3:A dark pink piece of paper was placed behind this calendar page to show you the center hole at the top of the calendar page, as well as the end of 3 of the sides of the calendar page. Both sides of the Calendar Page are shown in the pictures.Click on the link below to see my other New York Central items: If you win more than one sale, please wait to pay until I send you an invoice with the discounted combined shipping amount.

Just so you know in advance, First Class Parcels are limited to 16 ounces. So if the total boxed weight of your items is more than 16 ounces, only Priority Mail and Parcel Post options will be available for your combined purchase. You are offerding on the Calendar Page that is pictured.
This calendar pagemeasures approximately:
11" wide X 8 1/2" high, including the white border and scene description at the bottom.
The white bordermeasures approximately:
11" wide X 3/4" high
The calendar scene itself measures approximately:
11" wide X 7 5/8" high.
These are best framed in what are called "Document Frames" which are sold in retail stores like K-Mart, Staples, and Office Depot for a few dollars each.
Standard Document Frames are 8 1/2" x 11".Or, you can cut the calendar page down to 8" x 10" to fit in that size frame too.
I am not an expert on types of paper, but I can tell you that thiscalendar pageis printed on a glossytype ofpaper that has the thickness of 1 or 2 sheets of copy paper.

I will be happy to combine shipping.Question: Is there a way to "plug the hole" on a Calendar Page to minimize the visual impact of the hole ? My suggestion: Look at the top left corner and the top right corner of the Calendar Page. Is the color on either of those corners similar to the color where the round hole is ? If the answer is "yes", then consider using one of those corners for the "plug" since the corners are usually the part of the page that are hidden the most by the picture frame edges. Warning: Practice the technique below on some junky calendar page before you try it on a Calendar Page that you really want to keep ! Measure the diameter of the hole that you want to plug. Then, find a drill bit that is a similar size in diameter. Using the blunt end of the drill bit, trace a circle in pencil on the top corner that you intend to cut. You want the circle to be just a little bit larger than the hole that you intend to plug it with. Cut the circle with a scissors that is sharp and small. Place the Calendar Page face down on a flat hard surface. Use the blunt end of the drill bit to then gently "push" the "circle plug" intothe hole in the Calendar Page. Turn the Calendar Page over, and if the plugged holelooks OK, place a small piece of clear tape over the "plug" to hold it in place. You can always touch up the hole with some cheap water color paint kits that you can buy at a Dollar Store. I hope that my suggestion helps !
Effective January 17, 2016, sellers like me who print their shipping labels through have to pay for a minimumof 8 full ounces for a First Class Parcel even if the package weighs less than 8 ounces. So in general, each additional Calendar Page that you buy will only cost an additional 15 cents ( for the additional plastic sheet protector ) if the total boxed shipping weight is still 8 ounces or less.
