Make Your Own Custom, Personalized 2016 Photo Calendar

Post Update: All these calendars have now been updated to the 2017 version. When you click on the calendar and head to Zazzle, you will automatically be taken to the 2017 calendar page. I've also added more calendars, and on more types of products for 2017! Click here to see the entire collection.


Zazzle doesn't always make it easy to customize products. I've been working on the site for about 4 years now, and there are still some products I have trouble designing. One of those products has always been calendars. There are multiple pages to handle, image placement can be tricky, and sometimes template fields get mixed up.

As a customer, I'm guessing you would like to avoid all that stress. These easy-to-use templates make the customizing process much easier. On these 2016 wall calenders, you simply replace the stand-in images with your own photos. Scroll down the page on each one and read "About This Design," too, because I provide a little more instruction there.

1. The simplest template. From front and back cover to January-December between, simply "change" the templates to your own photos. If your photos need to be resized on the page, "Customize It" and use the + and - buttons to increase or decrease size. Done!

2. This one is a little fancier. You can add text to the front, and your images appear both on the cover and on the calendar pages when you "change" the templates. It's also very easy to edit.

3. These two have seasonal backgrounds behind your photos. They have pretty patterns and scenes to complement your photos. One is a regular wall calendar and the other is a single-page vertical style.

I hope these easy-to-use calendar templates make the design process simpler for you. These calendars make great, personalized Christmas gifts, too.

If you're looking for more products with 2016 calendars on them, such as mouse pads and magnets, check out this category in the FancyCelebration store.

Happy 2016!
