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.

    Do you guys print off the calendars and send to the costumers or do we havento do it ourselves. Redbubble do all the leg work for us not sure if you guys have gone that way or do we still have to print everything off.

    J Kong 16 Nov 2020

    Allison Prior 18 Nov 2020

    Can I make more then one calendar to sell..with different pictures..

    ArtWanted.com Staff 18 Nov 2020

    Allison, at this time artists are only able to create one calendar per account.

    Mark A. Lembo 04 Dec 2020

    Thanks! It was easy to create and edit a great looking calendar. Is there anyway for image-specific information to be added (HxW, media, etc)? Also, is there anything printed on the back page - artist bio, contact information, etc?

    Thanks, again!


    ArtWanted.com Staff 04 Dec 2020

    Mark, thanks for your feedback. We do not add any image details to the artwork by default, but this is something you can do to your own artwork if you wanted to. Just use an image editing program (ie Photoshop) to add the details to the image, just don't have it very close to the edge, as it may get cut off.

    The back of the calendars just have the ArtWanted logo on it with a phrase to check out more of your artwork on ArtWanted.

    Renate Nadi Wesley 13 Dec 2020

    Just wondering when my order of 12 calendars will arrive. Ordered Nov.18

    ArtWanted.com Staff 16 Dec 2020

    Renate - We have sent you a personal email to you with details about your order.

    Little Liz Happy Art 30 Dec 2020

    How long does it take before a calendar shows up on your profile page, after it has been made please?

    ArtWanted.com Staff 30 Dec 2020

    Little Liz - Your calendar is now active on your portfolio. You had a few images with warnings that we needed to remove, so it would go live.

    Little Liz Happy Art 02 Jan 2021

    Is it possible to change the $ to £s please?

    ArtWanted.com Staff 03 Jan 2021

    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.

    Mary Claire Roe 09 Feb 2021

    I have been trying to add my name to the cover of my calendar. I have uploaded all the months, but there was no "how to" instructions for adding my name to the cover. I need someone to walk me through all the steps of adding my name with detailed instructions because I am not very technically inclined. Thankyou!
