Easily Create a Custom Wall Calendar for Your Clients

October 26, 2013

Wall CalendarI recently went to a grand re-opening for a friend print shop. As a gift to attendees, they printed a custom wall calendar for anyone who sent in a picture. You’ll see a photo of one of those custom calendars at right.

Do you realize how easy it would be to create something like this in CorelDRAW? A macro included with CorelDRAW for many versions now is the Calendar Wizard and you’ll find a free article on finding and using it entitled The Easy Way to Create Calendars in CorelDRAW. A number of sample layouts are included, including versions with a placeholder for images.

In Lesson 11 of CorelDRAW X5 Unleashed Advanced Topics, I even work through an example where I show you how to create a calendar with an included photo. In just a few minutes, this included macro can help you create a template for a calendar similar to this one. Then you can offer customized versions to your clients as a gift or even for a small fee.
