I remember, a very long time ago (it was still 20th century :)) I collected photos of my family members: grandfather, grandmother, mother, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins … and got them scanned in a printing studio (no digital cameras at that time of course and to buy flatbed scanner you had to be seriously rich). I wanted to create a calendar as a Christmas gift to all members of my family.
So, in CorelDRAW! I made 12 pages calendar, one page each month. And I still remember, today, how tough it was to create months and how many times I had to check and re-check the weekdays and numbers and holidays and birthdays (each family member had their birthday especially marked on that calendar).
It takes time to verify and make sure that all 365 dates are under the correct weekday. It took me a week, at that time, to finish the calendar.
But it was the best Christmas gift I could have given to them. Everyone just loved it! Some kept that calendar for years after that Christmas and everyone still remembers how, back then in ninety something, they got this custom calendar with images and birthdays of our family members.
Today, I am a pro. I made so many calendars since then that I lost the count. Anyway, that one is still remembered and it shows how custom made gifts will always have a special place in our memories.
Even if you are just starting with Photoshop and you don’t know, if just don’t have the time to make a calendar in Adobe Illustrator or CorelDRAW! you can use your own photos, add your personal touch and make beautiful calendars with a little help of the brand new, (bsilvia brand of quality! 🙂 ):
