The average home has probably got more than one calendar in it somewhere. Whether it’s stuck up on the side of the fridge or pinned to the kitchen wall, a calendar serves as both a piece of art and a valuable organisational tool, one which is still incredibly useful despite the development of much more technologically advanced alternatives.
We all have lots of dates which we need to keep track of. From the birthdays of loved ones and wedding anniversaries to the start and finish of school holidays or even the dreaded day upon which you have to submit your tax return, having everything set down in one easy to access place is hugely convenient. Of course, you may have a laptop, smart phone or tablet that serves this purpose, but nothing is as convenient as simply jotting onto a page with a pen or pencil. Once dates have been entered onto a birthday calendar, what’s more, there’s zero chance of it crashing, running out of power or losing the information.
If you’ve got a bustling family life then there’s every chance that several people will appreciate having somewhere to note down the special dates which they have to remember. That’s why a family calendar placed in a room which everyone uses is such a convenient option. Another fact to consider is that the dates which you’ll be most desperate to remember will be the birthdays of people close to you. Some people are good at remembering birthdays and some people are terrible, but having a family calendar in your home will give you no excuse whatsoever for forgetting those special days.
The one drawback to most calendars of this kind is that they don’t look particularly impressive. Since they’re going to be on show 365 days of the year, and you’ll have to look at them every time you want to check a date, this seems like a shame. After all, every other piece of visual art which you display in your home will be chosen for one of two reasons – because you like the way it looks or because the image in question has some sentimental meaning. We don’t think personalised family calendars should be any different, and that’s why we make it so easy for you to make your own calendar.
Of course, not many people know how to make a calendar, but we don’t think that should be allowed to get in your way. We’ve developed technology which makes the option open to everyone, and even if you think you haven’t got time to design your own calendar the chances are you’d be pleasantly surprised. We provide the tools, the materials and the inspiration, all that you have to bring is the images which you wish to use and a few minutes of your time. In fact, it’s so much fun to make your own calendar that we think every member of your family will want to get involved in designing a personalised family calendar. Just be prepared for a few disagreements and even the possibility of everyone making a different family calendar of their own!
When you get to design your own birthday calendar you have complete freedom of choice over every aspect of the finished product. That means, first and foremost, that you get to upload the images which will feature on every page, and which you’ll be able to enjoy looking at each and every time you use your birthday calendar. When you’re making a birthday calendar or family calendar then the obvious choice will be to make use of images of people who are close to you. This could mean a different snap of your children on every page, or a focus on one particular member of the family, with each month of the calendar featuring an image of them a year older. And don't forget to put the other important members of the family into the personalised family calendar, the beloved pets! Alternatively, you may choose to ‘theme’ your birthday family calendar by decorating August with a holiday photograph, November with a shot taken round the bonfire and December with some Christmas images. The point is that the choice is completely yours, and as soon as you start to make your own calendar you’ll probably find that you’ve got more ideas than you know what to do with.
A birthday calendar of this kind will also be a perfect gift to give to someone who’s close to you. Few things are more touching than a gift which has been crafted and created entirely with you as an individual in mind, and a personalised family calendar created on our website will have the advantage of being entirely professional at the same time as being unique, bespoke and utterly personal. You can choose images which you know will touch the recipient, such as a favourite pet, much loved grandchild or a place which has special meaning for them, and look forward to the delight on their face when they realise the thought and trouble you’ve taken.
The truth of the matter, in fact, is that we’ve worked to create almost all of the effort out of the process. You don’t need any training, experience or skill, just a selection of your own images and the time to sit down with a cup of tea and work on your laptop, PC or tablet. You get to choose the size and shape of your calendar – whether that’s A4 or square – and also whether it’s a single or double page. Then you can select what the calendar is printed on, between paper or photo finish. Both offer luxurious quality, and photo calendars are available in matt or gloss finish, while paper calendar offer an extra matt option as well. It doesn’t matter which you opt for, they’ll both look and feel absolutely stunning. Once you’ve chosen the size, shape and finish you simply upload your images and then set about designing the layout of each page. We offer a range of design templates, meaning you can tweak and play around until you’ve got something which is exactly what you’re looking for. Add clip art, backgrounds and frames to make things truly distinctive and then simply sit back and relax while we get on with the job or printing your calendar and delivering it to your door. Once you see the results we’re certain you’ll be stunned by the combination of completely personal content and professional quality production and materials, and you’ll want to get right back online and start creating your next birthday calendar.bonusprint ❤ birthday calendars!
