2024 Calendar Templates

I've generated the templates early this year, no particular reason, I'm not making my calendars yet. See last year's post for an example.

2023 Calendar Templates

It's the time of year when I create a calendar to give to friends as a Christmas present. I use a heavily modified version of a Photoshop ActionScript created by Jeffry Friedl. The original is here. My templates include UK holidays. This is an example of last year's May page.
