Anyone else get excited to walk into Staples or Target and grab some new office supplies?! 😃 When using the Printable Calendar there are a few must-have supplies I recommend, so I’ve created an easy list of my favorite supplies here for you! These supplies always make me feel like I’m getting the most out of my printable calendars!
Printing Your Calendar
Your calendar comes with two sizes – letter size (8.5 x 11) and poster size (24 x 36). You can print your letter size at home and it’s the perfect desktop accessory, family calendar for your fridge or one to tape up beside your desk. This is the perfect size if you don’t have wall space for the poster.
When printing your poster size calendar, I use Staples and include a step by step video for printing it online! The biggest tip I have wherever you print? Select “blueprint” or “architectural print” so you save a few bucks!
I decided to frame my calendar; below are a few frame options in various colors:
- Brass Frame (Target) – this is the one I have!
- Black Poster Frame (Thin Option /// Thicker Option)
- White Poster Frame (Target)
- White Magnetic Frame (Amazon) – such a fun way to hang your calendar!
If you don’t want to frame it, you can easily hang it up with washi tape! You can also have it laminated when you print it to give you that “dry erase board” feel & extra durability.
Markers + Sticky Notes
For Markers – If your calendar is framed or laminated, THESE expo markers are the best option!! They are “wet erase” instead of dry erase meaning they require a damp cloth to wipe off. (As you’re writing, you won’t be able to accidentally wipe off items that you’ve already written!)
If you don’t need wet erase markers, I have this pack from Cultivate What Matters and they’re a great weight, plus have a variety of colors! (I use them in my PowerSheets and also on my letter size printable calendar!)
For Sticky Notes – I use various colors to differentiate items on my calendar. I have THESE square stickies because the size + color combo is great! I also have THESE thin ones and find them helpful for tasks / events that need to cover several days!
A few other sticky note options that look awesome:
PS. Don’t forget, I also offer a 2022 Bundle, too! As you use your calendar, snap a photo and tag me on social media – I LOVE seeing how you use your calendars!!!
