Hey! I need to find a good place to print a calendar - I've found some that have 1 image and all 12 months on one page.. not what I want.. I want a calendar where each month you flip the page and have a different image at the top - doing this for a boudoir shoot for a lady for her husband.

Any recommendations? I want good quality... yet i dont want my cost at like 60 bucks either.. lol. PLEASE HELP!!

I don't think this one does the printing for your, but it lets you pop your image in and easily create a monthly calendar thatyou save as a JPG. The freebies print ok at letter size and you can get high res for a modest charge. Calendar creator at BigHugeLabs.com

Most of the online printing sites have an "items" section where you can order calendars.

Costco has them for $10-18 (depending on size) -- separate pictures for each month, plus you can add little pictures or captions to individual dates.

I think the basic Costco membership is $40/year. I have one I drive past a couple of times/week, so I use them for almost all my printing. But other online printers should have calendars available.Some common ones are:

KodakGallery.com -- Calendars about $20
Snapfish.com -- Calendars about $19-28
Shutterfly.com -- Calendars about $20-25

I thought VistaPrint was a true (offset) print facility, not regular photo-processing. But maybe they've branched out.

I gave away calendars for Christmas with my photos. They did a great job.

As for what they do or do not accept, I can't say for sure, but I don't foresee any problems.

Here's a list of calendar services and prices I put together a few months ago. The prices may need updating, but it might be a good place to compare. I believe my findings were in line with what Paul (' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/1031.gif', '/') + 1) . ' GeneralE) said above.

Anyway, just some more data points to consider.

For any "questionable" content, I would contact customer service directly by phone and verify what their policies are. Better safe and sorry, and better to spend a few minutes on the phone up front, than to waste a bunch of time setting up what you want only to have them deny printing it, etc.

Ditto VistaPrint - I've always been happy with their quality.
