Page a Day Calendars

Screen shot from the site

Have you ever wanted to make your own Page-A-Day Calendar?  Well, I was looking for new and exciting things to do with my photos when I found this mentioned on a photography forum.  It's from the Teuteberg company and they work with people doing direct mail, but they also make these page-a-day calendars, HERE.  There is a min. order of 3 calendars and they cost $25 each (plus shipping and handling of course. 

Here's what the website says --
 Each 5½" x 4¼" Full Year calendar (313 pages with Saturday and Sunday combined onto one page) comes on a high-gloss, black Euro-style base with an easel to beautifully display your personalized calendar.

Customize with up to 300 of your photos (i.e. - upload 30 photos and repeat each photo every twelve days; 60 photos, repeat every six days, etc.), a calendar title and even date specific messages like Birthdays, Anniversaries, Events and more!!

Start On Any Month

That's pretty cool!  You can start on any month, so if you don't get this accomplished before Christmas, you could have them by the end of January or by Valentines Day.  I like that you can customize the calendar to include birthdays.  For me, this might involve getting my whole family in on the project as I do not have all the birthdays and anniversaries written down.  It'd be a good excuse to do so!

I was thinking that this might be a good idea for those vacation photos.  Maybe that trip to Ireland that we all took.  I can certainly find 300 photos of Ireland and the Isle of Man. 

My mind is just reeling with ideas for this.

There is another website that I use all the time (seriously, I do!) and it's the Bizarre, Wacky and Unique Holiday site.  You could put the wacky holidays onto the calendar, too!  This week we have...

22 Go For a Ride Day

23 Eat a Cranberry Day

23 National Cashew Day

24 It's open!!!!!

25 National Parfait Day

26 Thanksgiving Day

Well, those aren't as wacky as some I've found, but it'd be fun nonetheless.

I think I'm going to do this.  I can put in some photos of the nieces, the family, Ireland, some of my photos of the day and that'll be 300 photos easy!  I'll give one to each of my sisters, Mom, Dad and one for me and I've got something unique for all of us.  I'm sold.  I'm also pretty sure they'll be getting these in February! :)

Have a wonderful week!

That would be a cool thing for me to do for my mother since she is always asking for pictures and I never get around to developing them.
