Tips, Ideas, and How to Make a Calendar
More and more, personalized custom photo calendars are replacing those one-size-fits-all calendars you can buy at Amazon or Barnes and Noble. The reason? For one, they get easier and easier to make all the time... and once you've had one --fun, creative, and personalized just for you-- it's sorta hard to go back!
Creating your own calendar is a great gift idea for friends or family, or a fun way to cheer yourself up a bit every day. And there's a lot more to them then simply choosing 12 photos of people you like and sticking them up on every page-- there are a lot of creative options for custom photo calendars, and a lot of fun way to make them truly your own.
Where and How to Print Custom Calendars
