I needed a big, FUN calendar in my office... but didn't want dry erase - so I created a "faux" chalkboard style that you write on with white-ink markers instead! I also included a set of bottle cap calendar icons that can be used as magnets! See what's included and how to make yours below... ♥
INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING:
This listing includes the calendar shown... in 2 styles and 3 sizes! It comes as both landscape and portrait in 8x10, 11x14 and 16x20 sizes. Photo printing is recommended. The bottle cap images come as a 4x6, intended for photo printing as well.
TIPS FOR PRINTING: For best results, when ordering your prints from a photo lab, choose glossy and de-select the "auto fix" or "color correction" option if one is given. Note: Ink from a laser printer does not work well if you plan to use epoxy stickers (works fine with ink jet printers, glossy photo paper recommended if printing at home). Another tip if printing at home - be sure to use your printer's "BEST" quality print setting. On mine as shown in the pictures... I printed at home on an ink jet and used "BEST" quality print setting on glossy photo paper.
TIPS FOR YOUR CALENDAR: If you plan to use magnets, you'll need to layer a piece of sheet metal behind the print. I get mine from Lowe's, then use metal sheers to trim to the size of the frame. Just a note, not all sheet metal is magnetic, so test it with a magnet before you buy it. Layer it all together in your frame with glass on top for writing! You can find white-ink markers at any craft or office store, even Walmart and Target!
TIPS FOR ASSEMBLY: If you are using these images to create bottle cap crafts, I recommend using a 1" punch, epoxy stickers and flattened bottle caps. Bottle caps come in all kinds of varieties... plain (for making magnets) and ones with attachments like zipper pulls, key chains and necklaces! I recommend using E6000 glue (as it's specifically designed for using with metals), however the fumes are very strong - so use caution, store away from children/pets and only use with care following instructions.
