Calendar Printing at Your Fingertips

Girl Meets World calendar

Oak Creek Printworks printed this “Girl Meet World” calendar as a season wrap gift for the cast and crew of the popular Disney sitcom. Each month featured a collage of still images from the “Season 2” shows.

Using the current batch of do-it-yourself calendar and bookmaking software, you can create your own custom calendar or book and print it on your inkjet or laser printer.

Get started using the free Apple or Microsoft photo editing software. Apple computers come loaded with an application called Photo. The PC equivalent is Microsoft’s free Photo Editor, which is a free download from their site. Each program enables its user to import jpg images into the respective software.

Once imported you can use the photo editing tools in Photo/Photo Editor, or, edit the images in your choice of software, saving the edited file in a compatible format, like jpg.

Oak Creek Printworks printed this “Girl Meets World” Calendar from an Acrobat PDF file created with Apple’s Photo. We printed it on our Konica Minolta C6500 production printer, making it cost effective to print large quantities of multi-page documents.

If you want to turn your Photo/Photo Editor book or calendar project into a file that can be printed by anyone, you can “Print your file to an  Adobe Acrobat PDF (portable document format),” save and send to your choice of printers.
