How to turn your photography into sellable calendars

Hobby photographer? Fancy trying something new? Here’s an idea then: Happy snappers who feel that their pictures could be more than just something that’s being shown to the family and stored on the hard drive can now turn their work into wall calendars and sell them on online retail platforms such as Amazon.

Calvendo, a professional publishing platform for wall calendars, enables photographers to not only design their own calendars free of charge but also to sell them on the international book market. There’s always demand for good, fresh content and creative ideas for wall calendars: Cities, architecture, people, landscape and nature, art and culture, technology, sports, wildlife, food, lifestyle or hobbies – Calvendo’s calendar programme covers any interest out there and is unique in its range.

Publishing with Calvendo is fast and easy

Users register at no cost on, choose a format, upload their images, create a calendar using the system’s online editor and submit it. They are taken through the process step by step, and there’s also a support team on hand for technical questions. A jury checks the quality of every submitted calendar to make sure that certain standards are met. In the interest of the self-publishers, Calvendo only releases calendars that are ‘fit to go to market‘, and, of course, provides feedback how to modify submissions where necessary.

Calendars approved for publication are assigned ISBNs. Within a few day they are then officially listed in international trade catalogues and on retail platforms such as Amazon. Upon customer order, calendars are produced and shipped. And: Calvendo’s creative users receive royalties for each copy sold.

Lots of advantages & no risk for users

Since its launch in Germany in 2012 and subsequent set-up in the UK and France in 2014, Calvendo has grown to an international platform with thousands of users. Why? Because they can use the service free of charge, retain the rights to their images and receive royalties for each calendar copy sold while being given the opportunity to let their creative juices flow. There’s no limit to the amount of calendars users can set up in the system and the time and effort that hobby photographers put into their work to get it right can pay off in a whole new way.

I joined CALVENDO last October. I felt then that I was just too late to submit photos for a 2017 calendar although the time limit had not expired. However, I am now planning to produce one or even two calendars for 2018 with this company. Watch this space.

Superb site. Well done. I would like to be able to buy something I could wear to identify me as a Silversurfer. Would need to be quality Maybe a polo shirt (not a t shirt) with a properly embroidered logo and web address on it or a pin badge. It would need to be for all sexes. Does anything exist now ? Commission will be gratefully received if this is a new idea !!!
