To give a gift of a monthly calendar may not seem that generous but when that monthly calender contains wonderful family photos that change with the months, then suddenly a photo calendar becomes a priceless gift.

It can be quite hard to appreciate the level of pleasure that personalised calendars bring; it’s not simply that a monthly calendar is extremely useful to have on a kitchen or office wall, it is the fact that personalised-calendar printing includes wonderful digital images taken by you.

Too many people leave their favourite photos in the digital domain which means that very few people see them; but a personalised photo calendar is a wonderful way to release them. If you go online and seek out one of the calendar printing websites such as Bonusprint you will find a variety of monthly calendar templates into which you can insert your favourite photos. It may be that the design of photo calendar that you choose allows you to place a large photo as a background for every month and for smaller photos to be inserted on the date of a family member’s birthday or special anniversary. There are very few restrictions when creating personalised calendars; in other words, if you like the idea of having lots of photos as a background, it is usually easy to achieve.

Some make your own calendar websites offer template designs that include space for inserting your digital photos and also space for the lucky recipients of your personalised calendars to write in their own family and friends’ birthdays or other upcoming events. Calendar printing when it comes to personalised calendars is so good that when you make your own calendar the end result is equal in terms of quality to any calendar printing you may find in the High Street; except, your personal monthly calendar is full of your very own photos.

When considering creating your own calenders online, it is worth taking time before you upload your digital images, to decide on the best photos in terms of focus and exposure. A photo may look brilliant on a phone but not so good blown up on a kitchen wall. The best way to make sure that your photo calendar is going to be of the highest quality is to transfer your photos from your phone to your computer where you will be able to check that your digital images still look good when enlarged.

Photo calendars are fun to make especially when you carefully consider which photos you like best and where to place them. If you are creating a monthly calender that includes everyone’s birthday, at the end of the process you will have a very clear idea of when people are born. Of course, you will still need to have your own photo calendar on your kitchen wall so that nobody’s birthday will catch you unaware.

Whatever design of monthly calender you decide to create, the very fact that you have taken the time to make your own photo calendar will ensure that your personalised calendars are more than happily received as gifts this Christmas or at any time of year.

It is a shame to leave photos in the digital domain when they can be so cheaply reproduced as photo calendar, a framed print, a poster or, like a work of art, calendar printing.
