No as I don't do calendars anymore but the timeline here is horrific. 90 days to get something local is unacceptable. There is a disclaimer on bulk mail but I know it's not that long.

Will,

I have had issues with the mail.  3 of my bills did not get there on time even though I allow over a week.  The post office has had a huge number of workers out sick, and the weather has not helped either.  A

I do not mail calendars, Will.  I would not know if people are not getting what I mail out unless they are expecting it.  If I send a birthday card or holiday card, I have to trust people are getting the mail.

I'm so used to my mailed Christmas presents arriving in July for the past few years, lol.  I've zero respect for our postal service and cannot for the life of me understand why they earn far more than our paperboy -  he delivers on time, every day, lol

I have not done any bulk mailings in a long time. I am contemplating doing so. If the mail is received overly late, I will have to reconsider.

One of a dozen or so reasons why I would never send out calendars.

I haven't had an issue but don't get me going on the USPS who recently referred to my EDDM drop off as "Oh! Those dumb things?!".

No... I haven't had any issue with people receiving mail I sent in December.

Interesting that all the late mail-in ballots showed up to be counted for the last election. The postal service is not reliable anymore, obviously. It took 3 times to send my grandbaby girl's birthday present and it finally arrived well after her special day! I had to contact the Postmaster to make it happen.

I don't mail calendars so I have no issue. But the mail certainly seems to be inconsistent these days.

I don't do mailings like that, but that's an insane delivery even for the "Rain, sleet, snow, hail or getting out of our cars will delay mail delivery" postal service.  You should call and complain to the post service.  Maybe you can get a refund.

I mailed 753 calendars in early January (January 3rd). They all arrived on time. Unfortunately I got papercuts from doing it. Now my finger, thumb and hand got infected, still are, not much sleep since then and have PAIN 24/7. Will I do it again? NEVER. Now I'm seeing a Chitopractor/natural doctor 3 times a week, Kaiser for other tests, medicine etc. Had to go to the urgent care twice, omg... It showed that my immune system are really low. Who would have thought!

Finally they arrived. 
Just for comparrison, I odered some hardware directly from China on Dec 11 and received it yesterday.  SO the slow boat from China beat the USPS.
The truly amazing part is, and this has happened MANY times. the FEDEX delivery guy was able to run up the driveway,  drop package on porch, drive off  and RING did not detect. Happens often. But it triggers when I cross the beam.
