I’m back this week guest post­ing on Printaholic.com about design ideas, and this time I’m talk­ing cal­en­dars. I know, I know, 2014 start­ed already, but that’s okay. Last year I got a 2013 cal­en­dar in July.

Here’s an excerpt from my arti­cle, 11 Post­card Cal­en­dars You Can Design Your­self. Check out the entire post here.

It’s easy to make your own cal­en­dar, and they are great as gifts. Using your favorite design soft­ware, you can craft your own spe­cial image for the 12 months.

Like the cal­en­dars below, they can vary in size. For instance, the Paper Push­er cal­en­dar is the size of a post­card, while the Indi­go Bunting’s cal­en­dar is stan­dard 8 inch­es by 10 inch­es (per­fect for fram­ing lat­er). The pos­si­bil­i­ties are end­less!

Was the last year of your life awe­some? Want to do some­thing incred­i­ble this year? Why not com­mem­o­rate it in a cal­en­dar? This cal­en­dar uses the theme of road trips and could be used as a way to visu­al­ize goals.

One great thing about the Aquat­ic Crit­ter cal­en­dar is it comes with a stand. You can eas­i­ly pur­chase this to go with any post­card-sized cal­en­dar.
