2013 Instagram Photo Calendar

I have always wanted to design a little calendar using some of my photos from the year. This year, I thought it would be fitting to use Instagram photos, and I'm excited to finally present the finished product. The calendar is printed on a nice matte paper and comes unbound, so there's some flexibility in how you want to display it. When each month is done, you can cut off the calendar portion, and keep a little 5x5 print (if you'd like :)).


The photos I chose are tied in to still life, coffee and interiors - which comprise the bulk of my Instagram feed.


For the month of November, I am donating 25% of all calendar sales to local Hurricane Sandy relief efforts (a great list on Jenna's blog here). You can grab a calendar with the button right down there.

OUT OF STOCK





Update: December 13 -- At this time I'm no longer shipping internationally. I appreciate all the love from you, international buyers though!

Thank you for your support!

    1. Jesse, it's not bad! It takes a bit of elbow grease, but it was well worth it when I didn't have power to use my electrical burr grinder. I got it at a Blue Bottle cafe here, but you can get it online: http://www.amazon.com/Hario-Coffee-Hand-Grinder-Skerton/dp/B001802PIQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1352400831&sr=8-1&keywords=hario+skerton

    2. Great, thanks for that! Out of curiosity, what electric burr grinder do you use? Last question haha.

    3. I have the rancilio silvia - it's actually not the greatest for drip coffee, it's more of an espresso grinder.

  12. I was wondering the same thing as the last comment! I am in Brazil.. do you ship here?

  13. Alice I have to say that this calendar is such a creative idea and came out beautifully. I'm meant to be on a shopping ban but maybe I can't break it for this...

  14. Absolutely love this, Alice! Love the way you hung them above your dining table too. You mentioned just the pictures are 5x5, but what are the measurements of each calendar sheet say we want to frame each of them on our wall?

    1. Hi Ryan, the dimensions are 5.5x8.5 (half of a letter sized sheet).

      Delete
  15. I would love to buy one may I ask what dimensions it has?

    And another question. I am also working on my yearly calendar for family gifts for Xmas and I always have SUCH a hard time getting all the dates inline on the calendar layout. How did you do? do you have any tips? You seem to have got all dates lined up neatly without any sticking out looking ugly. Which program do you do it in? I use Photoshop

    Third year around and still THAT is what takes most time, making the dates fit proportionally. Gosh, have I explained this well enough? =)

    Thanks before hand

    1. Hi Juliet - The dimensions are 5.5x8.5 (half a letter sized sheet). I used InDesign to create the calendar. Photoshop would have been a nightmare haha.

    1. Hi - unfortunately UPS has severely delayed my calendar materials shipping. I will do my best to ship as soon as I have the materials. Calendars are printed to order, so it takes me time to make each one. Sorry for any inconvenience!

  37. Oh so adorable! You just gave me an idea what to do with my instagram image posts. I’ll definitely try to print a calendar out of those candid pictures of my family, holiday trips abroad and daily food porn.
