MagCloud Calendars + Your Business

The New Year is rapidly approaching, so if you’ve been wanting to put together a calendar for client gifts or to promote your business, then stop procrastinating and get to it!

No matter what business you’re in, calendars are a great way to keep your name in front of your client all year long.

We know that assembling a calendar can be time consuming, so to save you time, we’ve created templates for some of your favorite design software, in multiple sizes that fit just about any budget and style. Just pick your software and product size, then get your content and imagery together. With just a few edits to typeface and colors you can create a calendar that is uniquely your own.

<< Want to get inspired? Check out Merritt Photography’s Seasonal Reflections 2013 Calendar. Jennifer Koskinen created a fabulous calendar that celebrates the seasons with artful iphoneography and inspired quotations by distinguished photographers and designers. Koskinen did so using our 8″ x 8″ Small Square product to create an elegant and minimalist calendar that fits her brand and budget.

Product Options:

Small Square (8″ x 8″) calendars

These are ideal for square photos like those from Instagram. With Saddle-Stitch Binding a 28 page calendar will cost $5.60/each + Shipping.

Standard (8.25″ x 10.75″) calendars

Our classic letter-sized publication. With Saddle-Stitch Binding a 28 page calendar will cost $5.60/each + Shipping.

Large Square (12″ x 12″) calendars

One of our larger products, this Wire-O bound style has heavier stock paper and is well suited for showing off beautiful images. At 28 pages a calendar costs $12.08/each + Shipping

InDesign CS5 and Newer

InDesign CS4


Microsoft Word

Restrictions in Microsoft Word make it difficult to have an editable calendar grid in the Word template, so we’ve created three different templates for our Standard size calendar that offer a variety of grid styles as static images. Choose from a classic “Grid style”, a sleek “Line style” or a clean “Corner Style” and add your images to get the look you want.


Tabloid 14″ x 11″ calendar

Don’t want to use any of the above applications? MagCloud’s Partner Poyomi has an easy-to-use web-based platform that helps you create impressive 14″ x 11″ calendars that are printed by MagCloud. With their service you can easily upload photos from your computer or connect to your accounts on photo-sharing services like Flickr, Smugmug, Picasa and Facebook.

*Please note that using the Poyomi tool and templates to create a calendar or photo book will affect the pricing. For Poyomi pricing, visit

      Hi Crystal A, We didn’t go into great depth on that this time as there are so many nuances to each app, but I believe the instructions from 2 years ago does a pretty good job explaining it. I hope that helps!

    It seems that the grids for August and October are not of a high enough resolution to print properly in the MS Word templates. All three versions are the same.

      Hi Jim,
      We couldn’t re-create that issue, but to be sure it’s covered we replaced the images and included them in the post above. You can also find them as a separate pdf file here.

      I hope that helps!

    Hi, I’m using the small square indesign cs5 template and January 2014 month page does not output in the PDF. How can I fix this? thanks

      Hi Andrew,
      My bad! The layers on that page are a little goofed up. I’m working on uploading a modified version now, but if you have already created the rest of your calendar and don’t want to start with a new file, it’s an easy fix:
      You’ll want to navigate to the page in InDesign and open your layers panel. All of the items in ‘layer 1’ are actually supposed to be in ‘layer 2’ so you can either select and drag them into that layer, or “cut” them out of ‘layer 1’ and “paste” them into ‘layer 2’ I hope that helps. If you need further assistance, please just send an email to and I can assist you directly.
