Photo calendar 2017 - Make your own personalised calendar online

Because a photo calendar is always full of memories, if you decide to make your own calendar it will indeed be a special experience, as you travel back in time and remember many nice things you probably had already forgotten about. A personalised calendar keeps up the mood every day of the year and accompanies you from one month into the next one. However, once you start to make your own, the first thing you need to ask yourself is what format you want the photo calendar to have. As soon as you have collected your favourite pictures and photographs and saved them in a personal folder, you can start benefitting from myphotobook's vast selection of different layouts and formats to design your own calendar online or offline.

Personalised calendar: 3 good reasons to make your own family calendar

  1. Since a personalised photo calendar is made with your own pictures, it will be connected to special situations and feelings, keeping you open for new experiences while reminding you of things you feel good or proud about (as for example, your children's achievements at school);
  2. Personalised calendars are really useful. Far from being a mere display of dates, they offer extra space to include your appointments and notes. In this sense, the type of photo calendar does also play a role. For instance, a year planner is ideal to add your personal notes. If in turn, you only want to see nice pictures, it’s more recommendable to pick a personalised calendar in which the month block takes up a secondary space, as in panorama calendars or real-photo calendars printed on photographic paper;
  3. Just to be fancy. It will certainly make a difference at home and will gain many compliments. If anyone asks where you got that pretty photo calendar, you can also say “ I made it myself online with myphotobook UK!"

Upload your photos: What pictures should I choose for my personalised calendar?

You can choose pictures from your last travel holiday, portraits or family snapshots. As a matter of fact, you can pick almost any kind of photos to create a personalised calendar. But still, there are a few things to keep in mind when designing a photo calendar:

  •  Big calendar formats such as A3 or A2 require high resolution pictures, which means you should pay attention to the size in which your snapshots were taken. Indeed, low-pixel images when placed too big on a personalised calendar, are highly likely to look blurry. Fortunately, our online calendar maker software will inform you if your images aren’t big enough.
  • In case you want to make a smaller photo calendar or one that holds several pictures at the side, do make sure that the design is displayed clearly. In this way, your personalised calendar won’t lose its classy appearance.

Compose a personalised wall calendar with text and pictures

Tip: Pick a smart design and photos you really like or buy them for very little money on one of the many image databases in Internet.  Take a picture you like especially and create a personalised wall calendar to put it up on your living room or simply offer it as a present to a person you care about.

Special formats: square personalised wall calendars

You certainly know Instagram or the old polaroids, which hold a square format. But we offer many other modern and trendy square calendas to produce your own customised wall calendar online. In the following section alk about two other important aspects you should bear in mind:

Picture quality and resolution

To keep up an excellent quality of our customised articles and also have our customers satisfied we always recommend checking picture resolution in accordance with the size.  Our goal is to save you from looking at a personalised wall calendar with blurry photos for a whole year. For this reason our software editor displays an orange triangle whenever it detects insufficient picture resolution. Should this happen, make sure to upload a different photo that fits your desired size, so as to guarantee maximum printing quality.

Different paper types for a photo calendar on myphotobook UK

Learn the difference between a standard photo calendar and a professionally developed one:

Standard photo calendar

To produce a normal photo calendar we use 250gr/m² printing paper, which works particularly well for maximum colour brilliance.  When creating your photo calendar you'll get the chance to add a glossy coat, which gives a classy look and also protects your photos from liquids.

Real-photo calendars

For a real-photo calendar we take Fuji-Supreme photograpic paper. Pictures aren't be printed as usually, but are actually developed and printed onto photographic paper, as in a photo print. The name of this technique is silver halide printing. You will see and feel the difference in these nitid and brilliant colour photos. Dive into your fondest memories and even get to touch them! Therefore, it's the quality of photographic paper that distinguishes real-photo calendars from the rest.

Design any of both calendar types to fit your needs and choose from a variety of layouts, backgrounds and achieve a unique result combining them with some cliparts.

Personalised calendar formats

All calendar types can be ordered in the following formats:

  • portrait photo calendars
  • landscape photo calendars
  • square photo calendars
