Wouldn’t it be great if you had a calendar available on your laptop or phone at all times, so you don’t have to open your calendar app to know what the date is? Well, now you can! Just use a calendar template for your phone wallpaper or desktop background image and adjust the size so it fits. And because our templates are customizable, you can create a new one each month quickly and easily.

Print out a customized calendar template

Keep track of all your work assignments with a calendar template.

Customize the Work Monthly template.

Are you tired of relying on your phone to keep track of your appointments? Would you rather see your schedule IRL and write out your tasks by hand? Then consider printing out one of our calendars to keep on your desk or bulletin board. This is a great solution if you don’t want to keep shelling out the big bucks for calendars and agendas each year. Best of all, if you make a mistake and want to start over, it’s easy (and cheap) to just print out a new one! When printing, we recommend downloading your calendar as a JPEG. And when you’re ready to print, choose the landscape orientation and adjust the scale to fit your page. 

Coordinate a conference or workshop

These weekly calendar templates are great for planning events.

If you’re putting together a business conference, seminar, workshop, or team off-site, you likely have a million tasks to complete and co-workers you need to coordinate with. So having a handy calendar where you can list out your assignments and share with others would be a lifesaver. Then, once you’ve got an agenda for your event solidified, you can use a calendar template to map out your activities by hour and/or day. 

Organize a wedding or event

Print it out, tack it to your wall, or keep it on your desktop for easy access.

Then print it out, tape it to the fridge, and let the accolades from your loved ones roll in!

Create a personalized gift
