It’s that time of year again where I am thinking about Christmas presents, but also about how I’m going to stay ahead of the game next year and be organised. We often have photo calendars as they are a great memory of what we have been getting up to. This year I’ve used Snapfish to have my calendar made.
There is a good choice of sizes and options to select before creating your calendar. I chose the 12 x 12 wall calendar as we always hang ours behind the kitchen door, and I like to look at the larger photos when I walk past as it makes me smile. I couldn’t resist filling this calendar with photos of our holiday to Disney this Summer so I can relive the memories through next year.
First I chose the background for my photos. I actually changed from this design twice through the uploading and editing process but it was very easy to do. Each step gives options to change text, change the background and add your own personalisation into the calendar.
I liked the idea of having chalkboard art as a background, but as I realised when I added in my selected photos, it was looking a little dark, so I changed to something different.
You have the option to decide which month you want your calendar to start. I thought this was a good idea as not everyone may want theirs to start in January. As you can see the first month available was quite far into the future.
As you are putting the photos into the months, I noticed you can also add personalisation into the dates as well. This is a great idea for forgetful people to add photos in on certain dates. You wont forget those special days then will you!
A quick preview to make sure your calendar is looking how you want it to before finalising the order. You will be advised if any photos you upload aren’t great quality, and given the option to change before ordering if you choose to.
It didn’t take long for the final product to wing it’s way to my door. The glossy photos look lovely, and the size for us is perfect as it allows room to write in each square on the calendar without looking messy. Great quality for a very respectable £18.99 has allowed me to stare longingly at some of our holiday photos each month next year, whilst being very organised about everything of course.
Disclosure – I received a voucher to purchase the calendar but all opinions are my own
