We are so excited to present our 2014 calendars!!!! Our new 2014 calendars are fresh, fun, sweet and adorable! And on this page you will find all the information necessary to create your own AMAZING calendars! Personalized calendars make amazing gifts for friends and family! 

These calendars print beautifully! They were all created using the highest (300 dpi) resolution for the most amazing print quality! The basic concept on creating these calendars is super similar to using our quick pages and cards.  

This year we are so excited to present to you a ton of different types of calendars to choose from. One of the questions I get most of the time is what program to use when creating calendars. I primarily love to use Photoshop to add the photos to them, but also we recommend Photoshop Elements

Last year I got TONS of emails asking where I get my calendars printed. :) In regards to printing the calendars, there are so many great options. I have used my own HP Printer to print some of these out and they have all turned out fabulous. I definitely recommend using thick matte photo paper because they make the calendars super sturdy! Two great places I have used to print these include Persnickety Prints and My Pic Tales. Every year I get my calendars printed on at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out perfectly! They come bound. If you order your CD Calendars with them, they will put them in a cd case as well. All of the grandparents LOVE getting these at Christmas time. :) For our two page calendars, I highly recommend using My Pic Tales. They do two page bound calendars (front and back) and do such an amazing job. Please click below on both to find out more info on how to print our shabby calendars at both of these amazing sites!  Click the printer links below for more detailed tutorials and special coupons just for you!

POCKET CALENDARS

I just totally love giving out pocket calendars! Everyone loves these! Unfortunately there are so many different sizes of these calendars out there. Our pocket calendars measure 6.5" x 7.75". You can find the calendars with cases pretty much anywhere. I found mine at my local craft market. You can however adjust these by adding them to a larger paper file to fit into a larger pocket calendar case. So these will be something you will need to play with and test to get a perfect fit. But these again are super fun and are such quick fun gifts to hand out to anyone at anytime. This year I got my pocket calendars printed at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out perfectly!

CD CASE CALENDARS

Cd case calendars make super awesome personalized gifts. They actually make fabulous stocking stuffers! Simply add your photo to the CD Calendar, add the 2013 month overlay and you are soooo ready to go. The size of our CD Case Calendars are 4.62" x 5.43". These fit easily into regular sized cd cases. You might want to test out a printed cd calendar first to make sure it will fit into the cd case you have purchased. I love getting mine printed at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out perfectly! They come in a cd case as well. Our families LOVE getting these during the holidays. :)

ONE PAGE CALENDARS

Our one page calendars are so much fun and are one of my most favorites! These print out super quick and easy. The binding part is actually the fun part. Every year I get my one calendars printed on at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out perfectly! They come bound. Awesome! I highly recommend them!

TWO PAGE CALENDARS 

Our two page calendar is our most popular calendar and makes for a great gift idea. This is because both pages are printed and are both front and back. Again you can get your pages printed and you can bind them yourself if you have a binding tool. But if you want them printed quickly and I have to say, immaculately, you should get your two page calendars printed at My Pic Tales. This is where personalizing the bottom calendar with dates, holidays and other events make these even better. They do amazing jobs for our two page calendars. :) For more information on how to use these at My Pic Tales and for a special coupon please click here.

TWO PAGE CALENDARS AS TOPPERS

You truly have no limits when it comes to printing and assembling your calendars. Our calendar toppers in our Two Page Calendars work perfect with online printing companies. I have had mine printed at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out beautifully! You just upload your completed toppers and the bottom monthly calendar is a crisp clean white with black font. They come bound to you and ready to go. For more information on how to use these at Persnickety Prints, please click here.

FLAT NOTE CALENDARS

This year we are so excited to offer our new Flat Note Calendars. These calendars are 4" x 8". They come blank. You can add your monthly overlays to them and you will have the cutest desk calendar. You can also leave the bottom blank and have a sweet memo pad. Oh my the possibilities are endless with these darling calendars. I had mine printed at Persnickety Prints and they have turned out beautifully! They bound them for me as well.

Now onto the fun part - punching and binding your calendars! In the past, I have gotten my calendars punched and bound at a local office store. You can also purchase a professional wire binding machine too. But the tool I used for the calendars this year (and SOOOO my new favorite) is THE ZUTTER! This little machine did everything I needed it to do for assembling the calendars (and how super cute is it? It's shabby pink) . You can punch up to 11" with this little machine. And I punched 7 thick calendars at a time, which saves you so much time. And it truly was super easy and quick to do. You can go to their site and watch their videos to learn more. It's a very reasonably priced tool and a great small investment if you plan on making calendars for family and friends every year. 

Trust me, once you start creating calendars for family and friends, they are soooo going to love them to pieces!!!!!!!! Every year our family gets a homemade calendar from us, they truly go nuts! It's such a great quick way to give a wonderful memorable gift.

This year we are offering our 2013 Monthly Overlays that will update any previous SMJ calendar you have purchased. We have 2013 Monthly Overlays that coordinate with our One Page, Two Page, Flat Note and CD Calendars. Please carefully choose which overlays coordinate with previous calendars you have purchased. We are also offering our 2013 Yearly Overlays as well! These also coordinate with particular volumes of calendars. So please choose carefully which pack coordinates with your calendars. Please note we have retired our One Page Vol 1 and 2 and our Two Page Vol 1 calendars. We are no longer offering the monthly overlays that coodinate with those. It's much easier having our overlays work for all of our calendars currently in our shoppe.

  

CALENDAR TRINKETS

We also have a new volume of calendar trinkets that will help customize your calendars with holidays and other fun special events. This pack includes several holidays including Christmas, Halloween and more. How fun to add some extra graphics to detail up your amazing calendars!! All of these files have been saved in the bestest resolution possible to guarantee amazing printing!!

Trust me, once you start creating calendars for family and friends, they are soooo going to love them to pieces!!!!!!!! Every year our family gets a homemade calendar from us, they truly go nuts! It's such a great quick way to give a wonderful memorable gift.

Well I hope all this information has helped you about our calendars. If you have any more questions please feel free to email us here and we will happily get back to you as soon as we can. :) 

Until then, Happy Calendar Creating! :)
