How to Create a Printable Calendar with Photos

The image is the element that attracts the attention of those who look at or use the calendar.


2019 is coming up and making calendars with photos could be the perfect communication tool for you. In fact, the calendar, in all its variants, is an object that the public will always have before it, whether in an office or a workshop, a kitchen or a waiting room. As any self-respecting communication tool, you should communicate the values of your company (or the brand you are working for), in this case, through pages, photos and dates. For example, find a topic related to your company and use it throughout the 12 months of the year.

In our guide on how to create a calendar with photos, we show you the different types of calendars that can be made, where to find suitable photos, what programs to use to lay out the calendar and what other tips to follow.

1. Choose the format of your calendar with photos

First step of our guide on how to create a calendar with photos: decide what kind of calendar you want to make.

There are the classic wall calendars with photos, which are bound with spiral and whose distribution is one month per page.

Another type of calendar that can be created is the table calendar, also bound with a spiral and with a triangular shape so that it can stand up, for example, on office desks. Then there is the calendar with poster type photo, in a single format of 42 × 59.4 cm, which is useful to have in view all year. Another type is the planner, that is, the classic weekly office calendar bound with glue, with cardboard base and leaves that can be started, so that you always have it in front and take note of errands or appointments. Here, the area for the image is smaller, but can be customized with photos or graphic motifs. Then there are also the pocket calendars with photo, which can be laminated and are great as a creative gift for your customers. And, to finish, an original idea is the bookmark calendars, very practical and especially suitable for brands that operate in the cultural field.

Now that you know the different types of calendars to choose from, select a blank calendar and continue with our guide. For this, we will talk about a very important element: the image.

2. Choose the images to create a calendar with photos

Here is the next step of our guide on how to create a calendar with photos. It is obvious: the image is the element that attracts the attention of those who look at or use the calendar but, also, it is also the most customizable space and, therefore, it should contain the message you want to communicate with your photographic calendar.

To make a good calendar with photos, the images must be in high resolution and must be as original and significant as possible.

If you have a company and you want to create a product for your clients or your employees, you can hire a professional photographer to make original portraits of your own employees: for example, if the company is sporting goods, you could portray your employees in front of your headquarters dressed in sportswear and ready to practice your favorite sport.

If, instead, you have an association, you could include in the calendar the best moments of last year with your partners. To do this, you would have to review the photos taken during the year and select the best ones, after which, and always with the help of a graphic designer, you could retouch them so that they all have a homogeneous style.

A Letter Sent To Myself In A Time Machine

I see you blooming.


A letter to myself in the future,

Good morning, I've been trying to tell you for years now that you are talented. That your body is just an add on to you. Don't let edges define you. Calories were made to be eaten so stop counting. Please write it's the only thing that's going to get you out of this hood. You can make it out. Write until every birthday journal is filled, until you have nothing left to say. you will always have something to say. I'm here to tell you, "Poet Breathe Now." Go get back in your zone and spit mind-boggling metaphors into the mic, because someone needs to hear the truth. You need to make that stage boom because once it shakes you will every ones heartache. So poet speak now because no one else will do it for you. Go find the good people like grandma told you.

Remember it's hard to find them, look where vines grow from trees our ancestors planted. Where their fingernails were filled with dirt from plantation owners. They left this for you. Notes tied with leaves smeared with bloody soil. I am praying you make it further them. That these roots from southern trees won't drag you underground with the earthworms. That you will rise with all the beautiful creatures.

You are beautiful.

Inside and out.

Stop doubting yourself.

Let your true roots show.

Never be ashamed of where you came from. It made who you are today.

Let your arms stretch wide like the branches from your favorite childhood tree.

Lather in self love.

Take time for you there is no shame in being alone it does not mean you are lonely it means you have find solitude in being alone. You have found peace in a time you never thought you could again because the universe never gives us anything we cannot handle. You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it. You are a flower child so bloom. Let your petals reach for the sun. She believed she could so she did.

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose

Exclusive Interview With Soul Singer December Rose


Soul Singer Rosie La Posta who goes under the moniker of December Rose releases the ballad Hanging On. Finding a vocal style of her own, she hits all the notes effortlessly. You can hear past influences but she still keeps contemporary. Think Andra Day'smega smash Rise Up. As far the inspiration behind the song, Rosie says, "Besides the grief of a crumbling relationship, the hardest part in moving on is realizing neither person ever really closed the door. 'Hanging On' really paints the melancholy of the process." She first made waves her first single "Ball Game" which received a New Artist Spotlight award and was featured on AOL/Slacker Radio's "New Pop First" channel. Give it a stream.

Can you tell us a bit about your new song Hanging On?

For sure! So 'Hanging On' is about the "elephant in the room" everyone is ignoring. The relationship is crumbling, no one's letting go and closing the door to that chapter in their lives. The song carries listeners through the reminiscing sweet encounter and desperate plea for truth to set them free.

How would you describe your sound?

Always the hardest question to answer!! haha With all the new music I've been working on, there's been a huge musical maturation. With that said, there is a lot of influence of different genres, but to keep it simple, I'd say Adele meets One Republic, meets Gavin DeGraw, meets Amy Winehouse.

What's your song writing routine like?

This has evolved a ton over the years and still haven't really found a routine. My most creative moments are usually in the mornings, in the shower, and while on public transit around the city. Super random!!! I think on average these are the times my mind has the freedom to just think about anything. So, little melodies or song concepts might come to mind, or lyrics. Sometimes on a great day, all of these things come together at the same time. Little by little I build it. I don't force the song to come together in one day if it's not there. I let the idea "sit on the slow cooker" until it's ready (can be super quick or super long).

Are you playing any shows soon?

With the holidays approaching, no shows for the rest of 2018, but booking for 2019 already so all that information will be up on my website shortly. (
