Creative Calendars: crea tu propio calendario personalizado e imprímelo gratis Aunque disponga de uno en mi teléfono móvil o en el propio ordenador, siempre acabo recurriendo a los típicos calendarios de papel. Sea una manía o una costumbre popularmente arraigada, lo cierto es que estamos acostumbrados a comprobar la fecha en el almanaque que cuelga de la pared o del tablón de notas. Aún nos resulta más cómodo hacer anotaciones y tachar los días que pasan con un bolígrafo en un calendario clásico. Si quieres decorar tu oficina o la habitación de estudio de los niños con un calendario de papel y colocarlo en un lugar bien visible, no hay ninguna necesidad de gastar dinero encargándolo en un estudio fotográfico. Puedes crear un calendario tú mismo y personalizarlo a tu gusto sin instalar ningún tipo de software en el ordenador. Creative Calendars es una aplicación online que te permite diseñar tu propio calendario e imprimirlo gratis. Una vez que crees tu calendario personalizado, solo restará imprimirlo directamente o descargarlo en formato JPG.
