If you are having a difficult time finding calendars for your business, charity or organization that are relevant, then it may be worth your while to consider making a custom calendar. Designing a custom photo calendar is something that used to take time and specialized expertise, but now thanks to the Internet, it’s pretty easy to design a professional-looking wall, desk or pocket photo calendar yourself.
Some custom calendar websites cater to businesses, charities and organizations wanting to make their own calendar. These specialist sites offer a wide variety of tools and options that make it easy to find a calendar design that suits your needs, and they are generally are less expensive than the typical photo calendar websites that families use. As a defence against viruses, most offices don’t allow you to download and install software, so make sure you use an online custom calendar solution (i.e. no software download required).
The best photo calendar design websites make it easy for you to:
- Choose a template design that suits your needs
- Upload and insert your photos – some even allow you to crop your photos and then analyse the cropped image to make sure the resolution is sufficient to ensure it prints clearly
- Select the holidays and observances you want on your calendar; allows you to add your own custom dates (Industry trade show, “Company Picnic”, “International _______ Day”, etc)
- Insert, resize & reposition your logo and contact information – make sure you have the design flexibility to add the same information to all months or just to one or more months
Some of the calendar websites that cater to businesses, charities and organizations such as custombuiltcalendars.com will send you a free hard copy production-quality sample for you to approve before you commit to the entire order. If changes are needed, you can often make them at no charge.
Designing a custom calendar online is fun and exciting. With intuitive design software and professional templates and tools, the game has changed from what it was even five years ago.
