To use the calendar maker, first, choose the type of calendar you need. A classic wall calendar always makes for a great holiday calendar since you can hang it up anywhere in the home. You might also want a smaller, at-a-glance calendar, which Shutterfly offers many options to choose from. Once you select your calendar type, choose your design theme. Keep in mind that you’ll still be able to customize the theme by changing up backgrounds, layouts, and embellishments. 

The fun part of creating a holiday calendar is formatting your images and making sure your photos are exactly where you want them. Depending on the type of calendar you choose, you can use multiple photos on each page or a single photo to set the theme for your year. Be sure to set your calendar dates to a view you want. You don’t have to choose a yearly calendar if you don’t need one – you can choose to shorten your calendar to a specific set of months as needed to only show the holidays and dates you need.

Tips for Choosing a 2021 Calendar

When creating your best 2021 calendar, you’re free to design as you please! What’s best for you might not be best for someone else, which is why Shutterfly offers personalization options for style and function. Don’t be afraid to explore the Shutterfly Art Library if you get stuck – there, you’ll have plenty of options for backgrounds and photos. Use the following tips below to create the best holiday calendar for your needs:

  1. Choose a yearly calendar for more writing room and custom dates
  2. Choose an at a glance calendar if you don’t need writing space or specific holidays
  3. Create a highly visual holiday calendar by choosing a seasonal theme
  4. Take advantage of stickers and embellishments when possible to highlight important dates
  5. Include your favorite photos from the past year so you can relive your best memories
