I have been making calendars for quite a while. I learn new things about the process every year.
I was testing out a new process (boring, work-flow stuff) and had a thought I might do a calligraphy style calendar. Luckily, just as I started working on it, I got a ping-back request from Lolly Jane for their yearly round-up. And guess that? of the calendars they feature, a ton of them have calligraphy month names. Maybe even the majority of them. (Of course they featured the doily one – I am so tired of that one, but people do keep asking for it so I guess I’ll keep making it. Actually that has given me an idea…) While I thought the font I picked was super cute (and not a freebie one so not common) it was such a crowded field no one needed yet one more in the same style.
Saved myself a ton of work there then.
Instead, I decided to do something totally different – and because I really wanted to test out this work-flow process, I had to make two. Here they are – one black and white, but definitely not at all calligraphic:
Now, these will print at any size you like. When printing, look at your dialog box. Expand the Paper Size option. Here you can see all the native options for my (new A3) printer. Yours will have similar. At the bottom thee are my own specified “custom sizes” like coin envelopes or a 1/2 US letter size:
So if you want to print this as a sheet for your planner, you can. You can print it as a Project Life size card or as a huge wall calendar:
Virtually any calendar can be printed in virtually any size, if it is a PDF – some jpgs might work but if the resolution is low they might not be as crisp and clear as you would like.
My process seemed to work OK so I may explore a few other options throughout the year. Probably NOT a calligraphy one ‘tho. LOL!
Time to update my own page of 2019 calendars – I’ll probably try to do that and post in the next day or two. Now, about that idea….
