Make Your Own Custom Calendar

Want to make your own custom photo calendar? Follow our tips and tricks to bring your photos to life in a format you can enjoy all year long.

Choose Your Calendar Type

When you make personalised calendars online or using our Design Software, start by choosing the type of calendar you want to create. And there are so many options! From personal organisers to wall planners, the choice is yours.

Paper Options

Depending on the type of calendar you choose, you have the option to change the paper type. We offer four paper types:

Classic Paper

A versatile option for all calendar types. Weighing 250gsm, classic paper gives your photos the treatment they deserve.

True Matte Paper

Perfect for displaying smooth colours and contrasts. The matte finish absorbs light to prevent reflections.

High Gloss Paper

High Gloss Paper will give your photos a brilliant shine. It’s ideal for making the most of vibrant colours.

Gloss Photographic Paper

Make your calendar even more eye-catching. Photos are rendered with high depth and detail to present them like never before.

Choose Your Format

Now you know what type of calendar you want to make, it’s time to get more specific. Choose your size and shape, and then comes the fun part…

Pick a Layout

How many photos do you want on a page? Whether you want a single photo or a collage of your favourite snaps, you can with our software.

Choose from a range of different backgrounds or pick your favourite photos as the background. The positions of each photo are entirely up to you, and you don’t have to have the same number each month. Perfect if you’re matching photos to months – why not have a montage for March, and then showcase that amazing sunset shot for August?

Customise As Much As You Like

Why not personalise your design even further? Clip art and photo frames can provide the perfect finishing touch to your pages. The last step? Make the calendar your own by adding in dates to remember. Add in your loved ones’ birthdays, anniversaries and any other special events coming up in the next 12 months. Now you know how to make your own custom calendar, download the CEWE Design Software to get started!
