Need tips and tools for calendar publishing? Here’s a bunch of handy links that we’ve picked and mixed from different Calvendo sources and bundled in one place here:
Eye-catching covers are really important for successful calendars. We might have mentioned that before. (Ok, admittedly, we’re actually very fond of mentioning it). In order to support you in designing professional calendars that convince potential buyers “at a glance”, we have now introduced new and free of charge design templates for your use.
You’ll find the templates (for DIN formats only) in the Calvendo online editor in the bottom right corner under “calendar grids and design templates”. The layout of the images, font and font size as well as year on the cover are predefined and cannot be changed. You might find that restrictive at first, however, it’ll make it easier for you to create a visually more impressive cover. Plus, there’s still enough room for your creativity: You can, for example, choose individual colour moods for your images. Once you’ve added a picture/pictures, click on colours in the top right, then on one of the squares that show up below and then on “select colours”. A window will open up with a variety of colours for you to choose from and find the one that best fits your image(s).
Take a look at the calendar samples in this blog post that have all been created using our design templates: Give it a go and play around in the system! You can switch between different templates and try different options. Also, take a look at our step-by-step guide how to use the design templates. Our jury is looking forward to seeing your designs, and we hope the templates make creating calendars easier for you!
Should you have any problems/design questions when using the templates, please contact our support team on email@example.com.
