Whether you are a nonprofit organization raising money, a photographer who wants to showcase their work, or a family looking to share photos with loved ones you can’t see right now, it’s time to get your calendar planned out! 

Here’s our step-by-step guide to help you create a custom photo calendar you’ll want to share with everyone in 2021.

Calendar Design 101

  1. Stick to a Theme

People who are new to creating photo calendars generally choose a different theme every month, making the whole calendar look chaotic. Instead, consistency should be followed to create an interesting photo calendar. No one remembers a calendar from a strikingly aesthetic themed-month but rather as a stand-out calendar with a specific theme that was followed throughout the year. 

Photographers put up nature themes, wild animals, famous paintings themes to promote their photography. Similarly, bringing a single theme to your calendar will help make it memorable to all who use it.

  1. Good Photos are Key

If you are an artist or a photographer, then you won’t have to worry about searching for stock images as you’ll be showcasing your own artwork. It’s easy for artists to plan and come up with different pictures, layouts, and themes that they can use for their 2021 photo calendar.

For the rest of us, however, look to use high-resolution, and vibrant stock images searched online from various resources like Unsplash, Pixabay, Flickr, Shutterstock, and many more. If you’re looking to create a family photo calendar, then be sure to pick the images that have the highest resolution.

  1. Note Important Dates

Aside from major religious and secular holidays, be sure to get other important dates to you noted in the calendar: family birthdays, anniversaries, milestones, etc. This will give recipients something to look forward to throughout the year, outside of the normal holidays.

  1. Know Your Calendar Types

If you don’t have an immediate idea of where the calendar will sit, or how it will be used by you or the recipient, consider creating more than one type of calendar. For those who will have it sit in their office, go for a desk calendar. If it will be on the wall in the hub of the house, then be sure to create a poster calendar.
