Keep up with important dates and appointments with a 2013 Microsoft Word calendar you create yourself using free templates.
Grandparents and out-of-town relatives love receiving hand-made calendars with birth dates and anniversaries highlighted.
Don't forget to include photos of family members, pets, children's school photos, or vacation snapshots!
Note: Are you a user of a previous version? You can still use the Calendar Wizard if you prefer.
We start with a basic calendar, then in part two, I'll show you how to personalize it by adding color and photos.
Open Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010, then follow these steps:
You now have a basic document that is ready to print, or if you want something fancier, add photos and color to your Word calendar.
To print your calendar, press Ctrl+P. If you own a duplex printer, set it to only print on one side of the page.
Make sure to use a heavy paper (at least 32 lb.) so your calendar is more durable.
If you plan to use your calendar throughout the year or you personalized one for a gift, consider getting it professionally bound. A spiral coil binding is very durable and only costs a few dollars at your local print shop. This type of binding comes in a variety of colors and allows you to flip the pages on your calendar or lay it open flat.
Are you short on time? Most print shops allow you to email a Microsoft Word document to them. They will print and bind the document, then you can pick it up when it is finished. Or use an online service such as PsPrint.
Do you want something fancier than basic black?
