Learn How to Create a Custom Wall Calendar

We're excited to bring back our beloved, digitally-created and on-demand Custom Wall Calendars to our Creative Memories line, in addition to Custom Foiled Spines, Custom Refill Pages, Custom Album Covers and Complete Custom Albums.

Custom Wall Calendars allow you to drag and drop your digital photos onto Creative Memories pre-designed templates or you can upload your own designs right on the Creative Memories website. Once you order, you will receive a 12-month Custom Wall Calendar that has been printed just for you or someone you love to enjoy all year round. Once the month is over, you can simply cut off the bottom and what remains is a perfect 12x12 layout to add to your Creative Memories Album!

Advisor Tips on Custom Wall Calendars

And that's just the beginning! There are a lot more tips and videos on our Searchable FAQs page. And if you have questions, our support team is ready to help at Digital@CreativeMemories.com.

Here Are Your Need-to-Know Facts

How Your Order Will Arrive

  • Your Custom Wall Calendar is printed on matte, photo-safe (acid-free, lignin-free) paper. 
  • The top of the Custom Wall Calendar includes a wire hanger. 
  • Don’t forget to order Page Protectors or Pocket Pages (not included). You can add them to your order as separate items.  
  • You can order multiple quantities of Custom Wall Calendars! This a great way to create copies for friends and family this Christmas season. 
  • When each month is over, use your 12-inch Trimmer to cut off your 12x12 layout and add it to an album. View the steps below to add your layouts to an album. 
  • Custom Wall Calendars will be available for a limited time starting in August 2021.

Custom Wall Calendars Will Ship with Other Products 

If you order a Custom Wall Calendar with other products (e.g., Tape Runner, Page Protectors), all items will ship together. Custom Wall Calendars follow a bi-weekly production schedule (deadline every other Monday starting at 6:30am CT — view the shipping schedule here) so you'll want to allow extra time for processing. Please choose your shipping option at checkout with that additional processing time in mind.

“I am soooo happy calendars are back. I’ll be adding all the family birthdays, anniversaries and important events throughout the year. I can even add our upcoming family reunion.” - Lynn Philippe

You Can Add Custom Events to Your Calendar

 Don’t want to start your calendar in January? That’s fine! You choose your starting calendar month. Want to add an important event or birthday? Great! We give you major holidays to include on your calendar. And for important family dates, add photos and notes to specific days on your calendar. 

Themes and Art Are Available to You in the Designer at No Additional Cost 

  • For each theme available, you will have the ability to add artwork for that theme within the Designer. You do not have to purchase Digital Artwork separately. This includes artwork for designer papers, Fast2Fab™ designs, elements (stickers and embellishments) and mats for that collection. However, once the theme has expired, this artwork will no longer be available. 
  • You can purchase and upload Creative Memories Digital Artwork (and other artwork you own) into the Custom Wall Calendars Designer as a JPG or PNG.  
  • Our Designer is not a photo-storage solution. Photos are meant to be uploaded for the creation of a product and we do not guarantee photo storage. 

Advisor Tips on Custom Wall Calendars

“I love that the calendar is a gift that is two-in-one. Enjoy all year long — first as a calendar and then in an album. Double thumbs up, CM! Just in time for gift giving.” - Joy Lane

You Can Create 12x12 Pages in Your Own Software and Print Them as a Creative Memories Calendar

  • When using another program to design your pages, you will need 12 calendar pages. Any pre-designed page that you upload needs to be a JPG or PNG file at 12.25x18.25 at 300 dpi.  
  • In Artisan, you can use the calendar project to create your pages and export them to add to our Designer. If you use the default 12x12 page size choice, this is actually a 12.25x12.25 page. This will work in our Custom Wall Calendar Designer. You can also create a custom size template within Artisan.
  • To add pages that you have designed elsewhere into our Designer, you will upload these pages like you would photos.
  • When you select your theme, choose this Make Your Own option. This allows you to auto-build using your pre-designed pages in seconds or drag and drop your pre-made pages in each page.

Turn Your Custom Wall Calendars into Custom Album Pages

When your calendar month is over, you can quickly and easily turn your calendar page into an album page. Plus, you can add traditional stickers and embellishments to your calendar-turned-album page! The beautiful matte finish of the page (the same finish as our Fast2Fab™ pages) allows for great flexibility! Watch the video below for more information about how to do this.
