The success story of our company starts with the establishment of the book printer B. C. Heye & Co. in 1927. At first, we produce catalogues, journals and form sheets for companies and authorities.
The company Unterweser Reederei AG Bremen requires a calendar different to any calendar previously known. Our employees develop the wall calendar, which will determine the history of our company from now on: The first 3-month-calendar is born: Three months at a glance containing all-important data, just hang it on the wall and everything is perfectly readable – even from a greater distance. The new monthly calendar is not only practical but also constitutes the perfect advertising vehicle for our customers with its illustrated advertising.
The „Shipping Calendar“, as the 3-month-calendar is now called, quickly evolves to a complete success. The practical wall calendar with 3 months at a glance and large-size promotional message also becomes interesting for other industries, among others for the transport sector.
We keep developing our invention further and further and at the end of the 50s, we launch further sizes and designs of our original 3-month-calendar on the market.
The shipping calendar from Bremen has long since become an appreciated planning instrument and advertising vehicle in the whole world. Moreover, the product name terminic introduced in the beginning of the 60s has developed to stand for high-quality 3-month-calendars. Therefore, we have the name registered as an international trademark.
Apart from 3-month-calendars in various versions, we launch the 4-month-calendar with an even larger planning period of 4 months at a glance. ¬Our varied portfolio and our growing orientation towards the production of promotional calendars with multiple months at a glance makes us one of the leading calendar producers in Europe.
Wolfgang Rolla du Rosey takes over the responsibility as new managing director of the company from his father-in-law Rolf Ilg.
In order to provide our customers with an even larger planning preview and prominent space for your promotional message, we start the production of the large-size 6-month-calendar with half a year at a glance.
We proceed with big steps into the new millennium and name our company after our successful product, the terminic monthly calendar: The B. C. Heye & Co. becomes the terminic GmbH.
As already the 4-month-calendar, the newly added 5-month-calendar perfectly adapts to the requirements of the time for even more planning security and preview of dates.
We are growing and need more space for us – and for our calendars. From now on, we will produce the terminic promotional calendars with millions of copies at our newly built location in Bremen with the utmost professionalism according to certified quality stands and by using sustainable production methods – Naturally, everything will be coordinated with the special requirements of our customers.
In 2009, we also are the first to switch the calendar production exclusively to the use of FSC®- certified papers and cardboard from sustainable forestry. The terminic promotional calendars are FSC® certified (FSC®-C014980) respectively FSC®-Mix certified (GFA-COC-00819).
As the first producer, who only produces calendars, we were certified according to the ISO 12647 Process Standard for Offset Printing (PSO) for the especially demanding board printing in 2009. We print from the Euroscale with 100 lines/cm screens. This enables us to guarantee our customers the best possible quality for the print of their promotional calendars at all times. Our monthly calendars convince with a high and consistent color quality from the design via the generation of data up to the finished print product.
The customs office classifies us as especially reliable and trustworthy: Therefore, terminic has received the status of an Authorized Economic Operator – AEO. Your benefit: As a result, your multiple-month-calendars arrive much faster at their destination – your customers, business partners and subsidiaries in the whole world.
We expand our range of calendars and produce two desktop calendar models (the tent calendar focus and the horizontal desk calendar mega 1 and mega 2 with a lot of space for notes and dates) as well as poster calendars with planning across the years and a panorama promotional area in addition to wall calendars effective immediately.
Thanks to our long-standing calendar competency, we provide our customers with an impressive selection of calendar models, sizes and versions. The unique variety of languages and diverse design and refinement possibilities make our monthly calendars the perfect advertising vehicle. From this year on, we also produce our promotional calendars completely personalized in the corporate design of our customers – the design possibilities are virtually unlimited.
We exclusively use mineral-oil-free print colors for the print of the terminic promotional calendars. Furthermore, we have been carrying the logo „IPA reduced“ since 2012 because we print utilizing the principle of an absolutely minimized use of alcohol in order not to endanger the environment unnecessarily.
We continue our long-standing tradition as a family company: Huschke Rolla du Rosey, the eldest son of terminic’s managing director Wolfgang Rolla du Rosey joins the company and strengthens our sales team since the beginning of 2013.
We live climate protection and try to act in a sustainable and future-oriented manner within the entire production chain. Therefore, we participate in the climate protection project GOGREEN of the Deutsche Post and balance the emission of greenhouse gases generated due to the transport of our promotional calendars.
1937 we invented the 3-month-calendar – now, we are the first to make the 3-month-calendar „mobile” and bring it to your smartphones and tablets as app. Same as with the print classic, the wall calendar, we also place great emphasis on a clear, concise operability and an extra-large planning period. The mobile 3-month-calendar enables you to individually schedule your appointments. Among others, it provides you with a year view with zoom function, an individual search function and an integrated nationwide holiday calendar.
Environmental protection is not only a global topic – it starts in your own environment, in everyone’s own responsibility. As the first company in Bremen, we assume tree sponsorships of the Bremer Umweltbetrieb in 2014 and thus enable planting of new trees in the streets of the district Hemelingen in Bremen.
By participating in the climate initiative of the print and media associations, we commit ourselves to avoiding the generation of CO2 in the production of our monthly calendars as far as possible and in addition, we offer our customers the option to have their promotional calendars produced in a climate-neutral manner. In order to achieve this goal, we determine the specific „CO2 footprint“ for each order of calendars and balance 100% of the emissions generated by the production of the calendars by purchasing certificates of corresponding climate protection projects.
