Where to Go to Make a Calendar?
Free Plain Printables and File Sharing
- Create simple calendars by downloading a template from the Internet to your computer. Customize it with photos and/or appointments and print. Add photos to templates that feature a "your photo here" section; add appointments by typing information into the text fields. Sites such as keepandshare.com and Google Docs offer free document storing and sharing. Both sites have a variety of calendar and schedule templates. Signing up for a free account, however, is required at both sites. Calendars made on Google Docs and keepandshare.com may be printed or kept online. A PDF document will be created that you can save to print personally or professionally (stores such as Walgreens, FedEx, Staples, and Office Max offer high-quality printing services).
Free Photo Projects
- HP Calendars is a free website dedicated to helping you create photo calendars that range from easy to elaborately designed. Browse through the available projects, then click on the "get started" button. The site will guide you through each step: choosing backgrounds, borders and accents and uploading your photos. When completed, your project can be downloaded onto your computer to be printed.
- Shutterfly.com allows you to create personalized calendars in three styles: collage, classic and poster. Collage calendars hold up to nine photos per page. Classic calendars are 12 or 18 months and usually feature one large photo per month. Poster calendars are available at 16 inches by 20 inches or 20 inches by 30 inches. Prices vary and calendars are shipped to you. Walgreens offers both online (Walgreens.com) and in-store calendar creation. Upload your photos online, choose a design, customize dates, borders, backgrounds and embellishments. Then choose to pick up your calendar at a local Walgreens or have it shipped.
