What Types Of 2022 Calendars Does Snapfish Sell?

Wall Calendars

Before choosing your 2022 calendar, think where you’ll be using the calendar. A monthly wall planner is the best option for regular use and writing down daily notes in a high traffic area, while a slimline kitchen calendar could be the best for glancing at those key dates each month. Your custom Snapfish wall calendar will make all your important dates ‘pop’ and help you stay organised when you add custom text and photos.

Snapfish offers a wide range of wall calendars and small wall calendars to put up in any room or office from the large 14×22” calendar to the smaller 11×17” calendar (and when you buy the charity calendar, we’ll donate £1 to Macmillan Cancer Support at no extra cost!).

Choose between our three wall calendar formats

Creative Calendars (available as 14×22”, 12×24” or 11×17”), where the calendar opens up to show a separate page for the monthly grid.

Classic Calendars (available as A3, A4, or A5), where the imagery and grid are printed on the same page or,

Our ever popular slimline kitchen calendars (5.5×12”).

Compare the different sizes of Snapfish wall calendars

Our wall calendars are printed on high quality 250gsm paper which means your calendar has a beautiful professional finish. To make the wall calendar your own, our pre-made calendar layouts have space to include a large photo for each month or you can create a unique photo layout on each page with all your best pictures. Don’t forget to include photos and text on important dates – for free – when you order one of our Creative Calendar options!

Table-top Calendars

Our desk calendars and wood block easel calendars are suited for desks and hallways, where you want to see your favourite memories and just circle key dates to keep track of those special occasions. With Snapfish, it’s easy to make the perfect calendar online, for your home, the family, and the office.

We even have a 2022 diary for when you need to keep track of multiple tasks and appointments.

Easel or Wood Block Calendars

Easel calendars, also called Wood Block Calendars, double as beautiful home decor for your shelves, mantelpieces and coffee tables. With an easel calendar, each month is printed on thick, durable 300gsm recycled matt cardstock that you can customise with your personal photos and fun designs, and comes with a beautiful American White Ash stand. Just circle those key 2022 dates so you can see everything at a quick glance and remember to order calendar refill sets that you can insert into the attractive wooden calendar insert bases year after year.

Desk Calendars

Desk calendars are perfect for office or home desks. The Snapfish desk calendar stands flat on the table top so you can easily see the calendar while you’re working and flip the month over when it’s time for a new month. Desk calendars make great at-a-glance calendars as you can simply highlight those key dates and flip through all those memories throughout the year.

Personalised Diaries

A custom 2022 diary is perfect for staying organised on the go; and as a week is shown across two pages, there is plenty of space for all your calendar events and notes. You can customise a Snapfish diary by adding your photos to the front and back covers, and the Snapfish custom diary is the best calendar option for writing in those details you need to remember monthly, weekly, or even daily. Personalised diaries are perfect for showcasing photos of the kids or inspirational holiday pictures that will lift your spirits throughout 2022!

How Do You Customise A Snapfish Calendar With Your Key Dates?

The Snapfish online calendar maker is easy to use. Firstly, select the calendar size and template you want, upload photos and then create a calendar. Our calendars have the UK public holidays built into the calendar templates, but you can also add personal calendar dates when you create a Creative Wall Calendar. For the eco-friendly customers, Snapfish also sells re- fillable calendar inserts for the Wood Block Easel Calendars, and you can customise these inserts with photos and embellishments to make it more unique before it even reaches your letterbox.

Tips For Choosing A 2022 Calendar

A creative wall calendar is a great family calendar since you can hang it up anywhere in the home and it has lots of space for writing key calendar details. Snapfish also offers a simpler classic or slimline kitchen wall calendar option when you are needing a smaller, at-a-glance slimline calendar option.

Alternatively, choose the functional desk calendar or eco-friendly re-usable wood block calendar for people who can’t hang calendars on their wall, or like to have a table-top calendar near where they are sitting.

Once you select your calendar type and theme, you can customise further using the online calendar design tools to swap layouts, backgrounds, text, and embellishments to suit your needs.

It's easy to change layouts from Snapfish online calendar builder

The best part of creating a 2022 calendar online is being able to ensure your photos are exactly where you want them on the page. Depending on the type of calendar you choose, you can use multiple photos on each page or a single photo to set the theme for the month. You don’t have to choose a standard year calendar if you don’t need one – you can choose to create an academic calendar (perfect for teachers or students) or to start at a specific month if needed.

It's easy to change backgrounds using the Snapfish online calendar builder

Use the following tips below to create the best 2022 calendar for you and your family & friends this year:

  • Make each month special by selecting seasonal photos and backgrounds
  • Remember to take advantage of the free photo dates on Creative Calendars to highlight those important dates
  • Include all your favourite pictures so you can relive your best memories from last year, each month

Whatever calendar type you create, have fun making it unique with pre-designed photo layouts and backgrounds that you can customise. Your calendar can showcase pictures of the family, pets, travel spots, kids, and many more memories and they also make the best Christmas gifts for your family year after year!
