At this time, all funds on ArtWanted display as US dollars. Because we are based in the US and most sales happen in the US, we have everything in USD.

Original Post: 2021 Calendars Now Available to Create & Sell

All ArtWanted artists can now create and sell their own personalized 2021 wall calendars that feature your own artwork/photos!

This calendar product has received great feedback from our members about the quality of the paper and printing. We invite all ArtWanted artists to create your own calendar. There's no cost to build your calendar, and you will earn extra income if you sell them to your fans.

Calendar Details

The calendars are 11” wide by 8.5” tall when closed. They are spiral bound together and are printed on a heavy 110# cardstock paper. Each month will feature a different image that you have created. Your images will look amazing!

The process to create a calendar couldn’t be easier and has been improved this year. Simply upload your 12 high-resolution images plus your front cover image and you’re done! We take care of all the rest for you, including creating the master calendar template, printing the calendars and shipping them to the buyer. You will collect a sales commission from every calendar you sell.

New This Year

For the 2021 calendars, we have added several new improvements make building your calendar even easier.

  • Completely new interface to build your calendar.
  • Import your existing ArtWanted portfolio images into the calendar.
  • Import images from past calendars into this year's calendar.
  • We now support printing calendars without cropping your images (fit to page).
  • Ability to move an image to different months, without re-uploading the image.

Calendar Pricing & Commission

The default retail price of the calendar is $18 (USD), but you can change the retail price of your own calendar if you want. The wholesale cost to print each calendar is $12, so any amount above that is your profit. You can even buy your own calendars at the low wholesale price. Commission funds will be deposited into your ArtWanted bank account after the product ships, and you can use those funds for any ArtWanted purchase or request a payment via PayPal/check.

Calendar Promotion

The calendar will be promoted on your portfolio page with a new “2021 Calendar” icon. This portfolio page will talk about the calendar, display all of the monthly images and have a button for visitors to purchase your calendar. We will also post your calendar in a special Calendars section of the website later this year. After creating your own calendar, we suggest you tell your fans about it via social media or email campaigns.

Calendar Image Requirements:

  • For the highest quality product, we suggest using at least 300 dpi images (no less than 100 dpi accepted). Pixel dimensions of 3450 pixels wide x 2700 pixels tall is ideal.
  • Wide landscape orientation images are preferred over vertical images.
  • Images will be printed with a full-bleed, so some minor cropping on the edges will occur. Keep all critical details at least 1/2" in from the edge of the product dimensions.
  • You do NOT need to be a Premium Member to create or sell this Calendar product. It's a special product available to all members to sell on their portfolios.
  • Creating Your Calendar

    After you have decided which images you want to have on the calendar and prepared the images, head over to our Calendar Builder page to upload your images and set your retail price.
