How to Customize Your Calendar or Planner Template
Here are five quick-fire tips on how to get started customizing your calendar or planner template.
1. Choose the Best Template Type for Your Needs
There are a whole lot of template types to choose from. A number of choices are featured above. It can be tough to choose though. You first want to think about what format will fit your goals best?
A business card with a pocket calendar will serve a much different purpose than a large format yearly wall calendar. They both have dates on them, but make a significantly different impact. Consider what you want to use a calendar or planner for, whether that’s personal use or to drive marketing results.
After you’ve narrowed down the type of template you’re looking for, next it’s time to dig into design choices.
2. Start with a Design that Fits Your Goals
There are many styles of calendar templates on GraphicRiver. You may want a small business desktop calendar, or a monthly calendar that has a colorful office design, or a wall calendar poster made to feature your company’s photos.
When deconstructing the design options look at the color, font, image use and overall feel of the design. Ask yourself the question, “Does this fit my brand?” If so, that’s likely the right template for you. Choose one that feels on target with your goals and will represent your business professionally.
3. Add Your Brand Assets and Customize
Another consideration is what assets will the template require and how will you customize it? Most of these templates are made for Adobe InDesign, so you may need that program to customize your calendar or planner template. Or you can work with your printer instead. That’s a viable option.
They can set up, customize, work with all your assets, and get your calendar or planner printed professionally. Your printer can also advise you on what size they’ll need your photos in and what format to send your logo over as. We also offer setup services and design customization at Envato Studio.
4. Insert Your Unique Information
In addition to adding your basic assets like photos or your company’s logo, you also want to consider any deeper customization you want to add to your calendar or planner. It could be special dates that you want your customers to know about, upcoming deadlines for your team, international holidays, or other special dates that are unique to your company or niche.
Any custom information you want can be added. Just open the template files and customize it yourself or work with a professional to add it for you.
5. Print and Put to Use
The New Year offers an opportunity to put together high-value packages for your employees or clients. Now is a great time to work on putting together what should go out, could be a bottle of wine you package with your well-branded calendar.
