2024 Wall Calendars Now Available to Create and Sell

All ArtWanted artists can now create and sell their own personalized 2024 wall calendars that feature your own artwork/photos!

This calendar product has received great feedback over the years from our members about the quality of the paper and printing. We invite all ArtWanted artists to create their own calendars. There's no cost to build your calendar, and you will earn extra income if you sell them to your fans.

New Features for 2024!

1. MULTIPLE CALENDARS - It's been requested by several artists to be able to create more than one calendar. This year you can! Each artist can create as many calendar designs as you want, each with unique images.

2. IMPROVED BUILDER LAYOUT - This year we made it even easier to build your calendar with our online calendar builder tool. The improve layout is easier to use than before.

3.CUSTOM DATE GRIDS - If you want to customize the date grid using your own design or graphics for each month, we can now accommodate this. Contact us if you are interested and we will give you the details.

4.BUG FIXES - While they don't happen often, sometimes there were errors in the past when artists wanted to create a calendar. We have researched and fixed the known issues to make the process better.

Calendar Details

The calendars are 11” wide by 8.5” tall when closed. They are spiral bound together and are printed on heavy 100# coated cardstock paper. Each month will feature a different image that you have created. Your images will look amazing!

The process to create a calendar couldn’t be easier. Simply upload your 12 high-resolution images plus your front & back cover images and you're done! You can even import images from your portfolio or last year's calendar to get you started.

We take care of all the rest for you, including creating the master calendar template, printing the calendars and shipping them to the buyer. You will collect a sales commission from every calendar you sell.

Calendar Pricing & Commission

The default retail price of the calendar is $20.95 (USD), but you can change the retail price of your own calendar if you want. The wholesale cost to print each calendar is $14.95, so any amount above that is your profit. You can even buy your own calendars at the low wholesale price for gifts. Commission funds will be deposited into your ArtWanted bank account after the product ships, and you can use those funds for any ArtWanted purchase or request payment via Venmo/PayPal/check.

Calendar Promotion

The calendar will be promoted on your portfolio page with a new "2024 Calendar" icon. This portfolio page will talk about the calendar, display all of the monthly images and have a button for visitors to purchase your calendar. We will also post your calendar in a special Calendars section of the website later this year. After creating your own calendar, we suggest you tell your fans about it via social media or email campaigns.

Calendar Image Requirements:

  • For the highest quality product, we suggest using 300 dpi images (no less than 100 dpi accepted). Pixel dimensions of 3375 pixels wide x 2625 pixels tall is the perfect size.
  • Wide landscape orientation images are preferred over vertical images, but vertical is accepted.
  • Images will be printed with a full-bleed, so some minor cropping of 1/8" on the edges will occur. Keep all critical details at least 1 inch from the edge of the product dimensions.
  • You do NOT need to be a Premium Member to create or sell this Calendar product. It's a special product available to all members to sell on their portfolios.
  • Calendar Features:

  • Our simple calendar builder is free to use and walks you through each step.
  • Custom front cover, back cover and 12 images for each month.
  • 3 choices for date grid layout for the bottom of the calendar.
  • Calendars are printed-on-demand when ordered, so you don't have to pay for sitting inventory.
  • Design templates are available for you to make image preparation simple.
  • Import images from your ArtWanted portfolio, previous calendars or from your computer/device.
  • We provide you with personalized graphics you can use to market your calendar on social media.
  • Multiple print facilities around the world for the fastest shipping time and lower costs to the buyer.
  • Calendars shipped to US addresses, include US holidays on the date grid.
  • Creating Your Calendar

    After you have decided which images you want to have on the calendar and prepared the images, head over to our Calendar Builder page to upload your images and set your retail price.

    Calendar Cover Images:

    You can add a front and back cover image to your calendar. Although not required, we suggest that you add your name and the year (2024) to the design/image of your front cover image. This will always remind the buyer of the name of the artist they are looking at all year. For the back cover image, you can add your website/contact information, a photo of yourself, or even a short bio. You can decide what images and information you want to add to the back cover. Be sure to keep text at least an inch away from the image border, so nothing is cut off in the trimming process. We do not offer an online design center for the cover images, so you will need to design the images in an image editing software (ie Photoshop) before you upload them to ArtWanted.

    Calendar Summary

    We hope you enjoy this new ArtWanted feature take advantage of it by creating your own custom calendar for 2023. The calendars are great for home or office and make a great gift. Post a reply with your feedback on this new product and let's see what you create!

    Can the calendar pages be custom made by artist as well as the art pages? I have special astrological data for each day.

    Daniel - If you wanted to take the time to create a new grid image for each month, we could accommodate this request. After you have created the first grid image for January, please email it to us, so we can give you feedback or changes, before you create the full year of images that might require a tweak.

    I am sending the sample jpeg calendar for the January page. How will I add these custom pages to my calendar? Thanks much!

    Daniel - Please email your file(s) to [email protected] and we can review them and attach them to your calendar after it is built. You can use the calendar builder to upload all of the top images and only send us the date grid files.

    I wanted to do this last year and sadly could not, but this is a new year! when is the deadline?

    There is no deadline to create a calendar. However, orders normally happen in the fall/winter months, so the sooner you create your calendar, the better!
