Step-by-step instructions on creating a Printable Calendar (PDF) to print or share. You may also add your own events to the PDF calendar.
Calendar Types and Country
Select calendar type and design
Choose a calendar type by clicking one of the buttons: Yearly, Monthly, Weekly, or Daily
- Yearly: one year per page
- Monthly: one month per page, i.e., 12 pages per year
- Weekly: one week per page
- Daily: one day per page
- Family: roster with 1–20 columns (Supporters only)
- Multi-Month: 1–12 months per page (Supporters only)
You can also choose between different designs for most templates. Simply click on the preview under Choose a design to select the one you prefer. You can change to a different design at any point in the process.
If you have chosen a Weekly calendar, and you are used to starting your week on a Sunday, you must choose the design to the right as this is the only option which allows Sunday as the 1st day of the week.
Country and state
Choose a country in the Country drop-down menu. The service defaults to the calendar for the country you are located in or to the country chosen in your settings.
For some countries, a State drop-down appears where you can select a state within the country. State settings mainly affect your holiday selection. If you choose to display holidays for only one state, the holiday name will be displayed on your PDF and, in parenthesis, abbreviations for all states where this particular holiday is observed.
Start and end dates
Now choose start and end dates for your calendar.
- Daily & weekly: Choose or set dates. You can also enter a start date and then use the Days field to enter the number of days that your calendar should cover (maximum 366 days).
- Monthly: Add up to 12 months per calendar PDF.
- Yearly: Add up to three years per calendar PDF.

How do I access the Family and Multi-Month templates?
How do I add, remove and name columns in the Family template?
The family calendar template defaults to four columns, but this is very easy to change.
You can add up to 20 columns per page, in either portrait or landscape format. Rotate the orientation by clicking the Rotate link.
To add columns, simply click the + Add column link.
To delete a column, hover your cursor over or next to the column and click the x delete link.
You can add a name on top of each column. If the name is long, the calendar will only display as many letters as there is room for; it will not expand the cell in any way. You can see what your chosen name looks like in the preview.
How do I choose how many months per page and per calendar in the Multi-Month template?
Select how many months you want on each page from 1–12 in the Multi-month layout: drop-down menu.
Choose the span of your calendar by selecting the Year: and the First month:. Select the total number of months you want to include in your calendar. You can choose up to 24 months in total.
Holidays & Observances
In this section, you can choose which holidays and observances should appear in the calendar. Simply tick the boxes next to the types of events you wish to add to the calendar. For a calendar without holidays or observances, untick all the boxes.
To change the color used in the calendar for each event type, click on one of the colored boxes appearing next to each category and select a color.
Your choices are immediately reflected in the preview.

In addition, local languages are available for most countries' calendars. Here is a list of all the different languages and holidays available in our calendar database.
