Thinking about publishing your best works of art in a calendar? I don’t recommend you go to Shutterfly . . . or Walmart . . . any of those popular spots that not only cost a fortune but offer no professional design options for displaying your hard-earned masterpieces. If your work is above average, don’t stoop to put them in below-average frames.
This is why I’ve been designing my own calendars for years. Using the industry standard programs of InDesign and Photoshop, I have complete control over every aspect of the entire calendar, from cover to cover. For each new year, I invest dozens of hours into designing a new theme — a new template that you can use for displaying your work too.
Calendars for the artist, designed by an artist. Start displaying your work now — professionally, cost-effectively.
