Lots of great artists have been making free printable calendars to drum up a little excitement for their work. I think this is a great way to market your work since (prospective) customers will be seeing your name/brand every time they look at their calendar. Subliminal messaging anybody?
Here are some of the fun free printable calendars I've spotted floating around the blogosphere:
1. A Typical Type A has this lovely graphic calendar that would work in any room. Also check out her luscious stationary shop!
2. Mibo has a cute free retro year-at-a-glance calendar in addition to the for-purchase individual months in their shop.
3. Writer and photographer Irene Nam offers this gorgeous photo calendar. So pretty!
4. The Blog Guidebook is offering up this amazing collage-style 2011 calendar!
5. Cameron over at the Cottage Industrialist created this organic-style fruit and vegetable calendar. Check out her shop...gorgeous dramatic fabrics, printables, and sweet notebooks!
6. CreativeMamma's got a cute mini Kawaii calendar and also a (7) doodle calendar with space big enough to write in (so helpful). Check out the cute Kawaii printables in her shop!
8. Become a fan of the Anna and Blue Paperie shop on Facebook and they'll send you this sweet printable desktop calendar.
9. Ez over at Creature Comforts made this lovely nature-inspired watercolor calendar.
10. The amazing free owl calendar from My Owl Barn has been featured around blogland for good reason: it's cute and you get to pick which artwork you want on which month!
11. Graphic designer Cathe Holden from Just Something I Made offered this lovely 2011 dishtowel calendar at Dollar Store Crafts. I love this! I wish I could make one b/c it would be perfect to just hang on our kitchen wall...
