Project description

We are an online printer looking for 2 versions of file templates for wall calendars.

It is not about creating a calendar with images. Instead it should be a template that takes account of bleed, is in cmyk and has the correct size for printing. The purpose of this template is to download it and make your own calendar with personal images or graphics, but to have the monthly sheets already there, with U.S. holidays. Here is information about creating a layout:

Sum up:
- Calendar templates to create print-ready file, no real calendar design with images needed!
- create 12 monthly calendar sheets for 2018
- sheets should start with Sunday and include U.S. holidays 2018
- 9 templates, but basically 2 different versions. One for saddle stitch and one for wire-o

Saddle Stitched Calendars:
8.5x11" 28 pages
11x8.5" 28 pages
8.5x8.5" 28 pages
5.5x8.5" 28 pages
8.5x5.5" 28 pages
Templates can be the same, only adapted to different size.

Wire-0 Calendars:
11x17" 13 pages
8.5x11" 13 pages
11x8.5" 13 pages
11x11" 13 pages
Templates can be the same, only adapted to different size.

Please see attached files for further information. One file shows an example of the setup of 28 pages, the other file shows how to consider bleed etc.

Further jobs might come up for different sizes, different amount of pages, and wire-o calendars.

  • Hi
    I am interested in participating in this project.
    This is my concept for this entry.
    All is created in vector and original by me.
    Please let me know if you want to change colors or style.

  • About #5, @abie_jone
    Font of Month and year could be a bit smaller, so image gets bigger.
    US holidays are still missing in sample page.
    This would be Wire-O template.

    Saddle Stitch template is missing? And you would do other month after general design is clear?
  • should not be centered, but in top left corner. So template can be used to put holidays in, or to make personal dates #1
  • About #1, @bgx90

    simple is good, if you could copy pretty much those two:
    1. wire-0
    (british version, holidays don't match!, only b/w necessary)

    2. saddle-stich:

    We would be happy with it, except for maybe slightly difference in font, so it is not an exact copy. And should be somehow adaptable for different sizes
  • dots not needed here. This looks like a wire-o binding, but two pages per month would be saddle stitch, and 1 page per month would be wire-o. #1
  • About #4, @abie_jone

    Please see example templates, they could be really copied, expect for maybe different font and color b/w
  • Green bar is not necessary, takes space away of the picture #4
  • No holiday entry is visible. Maybe better to put number in top left corner, to leave space for calendar entry #4
  • About #4, @abie_jone

    The picture should get half of the page, January 2018 is too big. if you could adapt to this, but in b/w, except Sundays in red:

    Month should be to the left, year to the right.
  • Previous and following month is not necessary, if it takes to much space in the end #2
  • About #2, @abie_jone

    Thank you abie!

    I like the design and the font. Gives a simple style that can be used for different kinds of designs that our customers create on their own. But there are some things to consider:

    1. Saddle Stitched Wall-Calendar Template
    There is no need to put the picture and the month on one page, because the first page is an image, the second page the month with the days. See here for an example:

    2. Wire-O Template
    I would like to put more focus on the space for the image and divide the image and month with a vertical line. Here is an example:

    3. Holidays
    US Holidays should be included
  • very simple design, Font can be changed to whatever you prefer. provided 2 different styles, either with the grid or without. the other size calendars will be made once we settle on a design that can be translated to all sizes. let me know your thoughts and any changes you would like made #1
