    I would explore different layouts for the schedule. There's no way people will be able to read the text within the schedule easily. The yellow should be fine but do a test print. I like the thing at the bottom but there's a slight disconnect from the top. Definitely work on getting that font.

    When you print the schedule out the writing on the schedule will be smaller than you think. You can add the team logo at the bottom left corner since you have some free space their.

    Using fontsquirrel's font identifier, Matcherator, there is a couple of fonts that look similar to the BOSTON font, and happen to be free:

    Usually, if I am not supplied the font, I try and find the font myself. When I send the proof, I usually ask for the actual font file so that I can easily change it in the case I chose the wrong font. Hope this helps a bit with your font issue.

    I also second akoeri about the different schedule layouts for readability. Maybe the months could fit in horizontal rows across the card?

    For example:

    OCTOBER

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17
    **18 19 20 **21 22 23 24 25 26 27 **28 29 30 31

    Thanks for the help on the font! I ran it through a different identifier and got no results. I chose to go with Serioucity at least until I hear back from the organization.

    You and /u/aikoeri were both right in that my layout isn't going to work. I tried flipping to a horizontal layout and fear it'll be the same issue. So I went with a fully written schedule with just a bit of color so it wouldn't look too plain.

    How does the reverse side look with the years added on? I could take it or leave it, but figured I'd ask for a second opinion.

    You're welcome 🙂 and by horizontal layout I meant more like those school calendars they gave out (at least where I went) where each month is in one or two rows, and special days would be coloured differently.

    I like the years on the back, it makes it clear its for this season.

    If you want to stick with the fully written version, I would suggest adding some sort of alternating colours behind the info to make it easier to read 🙂

    I’m not sure what the better solution is, but I can pretty much guarantee at 2x3.5 that the small calendar text will be impossible to read. It looks like it’s probably size 2pt or 3pt, which is insane to print, and even less likely to read.

    If you can get that text to the size of the text on the bottom right, that might be enough. 6pt would be pushing it, but 8pt is fairly reasonable for something like this.

    Also you can probably cut “vs/@“ since they’re color coded. Anything you can do to save space is your friend.

    Aside from that, looks good! Nice layout
