Calendar software?

stevec50January 11, 2003

I'd like to know what calendar programs you all use. I have a copy of 'Calendar Creator' in PrintShop 12 but it's a real pain. Very hard to move pictures around in it and to resize them. I do like the part where it lets you add different groups of birthdays to your layout, like sports figures or presidents but the picture thing has got my goat. Wondering if the full stand-alone version is any better?

So, what software do you use and what features in it do you like?

Thanks for any input,

Steve C.

I have Print Shop Premier Edition 5.0 and have made family calendars the last two years on it and I haven't had any problems putting pictures in, moving them resizing them or anything. As a matter of fact I put pictures in the date boxes of each persons birthday and anniversaries and some date boxes have as high as three pictures with names and years on them. When they are printed you can see them real good. I enter over 100 pictures in the date boxes alone with pictures on the top of each page. I put the month with pictures or verses right above the date boxes. I have never worked with Printshop 12 so don't know how it works but I find Printshop 5.0 fun and easy to work with and doubt if I ever upgrade. I make 13 of them, all for my mother and sibblings and some nieces and nephews. Everyone loves them.

How do you put these calendars together once they're printed? Stapled? I've been trying to find this out. Thanks in advance...Tracy

Hi Tracy. To put calendars together I went out and bought a binding machine. The link below will get you to the plastic comb binding page. Scroll to the bottom of the page to see the machine that I got. Cost me $59. There are other ways but I like the look of these bindings.
Take care, Steve C.

Tracy, i made calendars for christmas and i took them to office max and office depot to have them bound. They both do it for around 1.50 and 2.00 a piece, depending on what you choose. They have different types of binding. Wanda

I had mine bound at Staples for less than $1.00 each. I had them done with the white plastic scrolling binding and they look nice.

I have the ol' Ver 6...and have the calendar template/option where I have the Cards, Letterhead, Labels, etc. Do you have this option, rather than using the Calander Maker? I, also, have no problem adding graphics, resizing or anything...?
You can also try TuCows or ZDNet for some shareware or trial software.....I checked them both and they have some, depending on your personal needs....

Hi Tiger, yes I have the calendar template in the same place as you do. I just think those are so plain looking. With the 'Calendar Creator' things like moon phases and U.S. holidays and the standard two mini months can be added in. It's just the darn graphics that are so hard to work with. Also with 'C.C.' you can change the grid color, the day font and color and many more things. I'll give it one more try, then it's off to CompUSA for another program.
Take care, Steve C.
