Paper Source

Paper Source's Full Year Laminate Wall Calendar can help you visualize the entire year ahead in one place. While there isn't a ton of room to write detailed notes on each day, a color coding system with dry erase markers would work well for reminders on daily or weekly events. This calendar is poster-sized, measuring 24 by 36 inches, but is a good choice if you are looking for ideas to decorate a large wall. We appreciate that it's double-sided for vertical or horizontal orientation and also enjoy its minimalist design.

Poluma Three-Month Wall Calendar Display

Poluma Store 3-Month Calendar


For a broader look at all of your upcoming appointments and commitments, consider a three-month wall calendar. Though you’ll need a bit more vertical hanging space (this one measures 26 inches long), you’ll have the luxury of planning a bit further ahead without having to turn pages. This calendar runs from May 2022 to June 2023, so it's also useful for people who use 14-month calendars rather than 12-month versions.

If you’re worried you won’t be able to tote the calendar with you, don’t be. If desired, you can condense the larger month calendar by folding it into an A4 size notebook for carrying anywhere or tear off any passing months. What’s more, the large-format daily blocks feature bold, centered dates for clear and quick reference and highlights on federal holidays, but they still leave plenty of room for your own written notes.

What to Look for When Buying a Wall Calendar

Subject Matter

A wall calendar is a small purchase, but it’s something you will be glancing at all year long. Pick a calendar with a subject matter or look you find appealing. A wall calendar can be devoted to a favorite hobby or city, to scenes of nature, or to a particular artist. Or you can help set the tone for the new year by choosing a wall calendar with inspirational photos, quotes, or a personal theme that resonates with you. 


Whether you are decorating a bedroom or an office, wall calendars are a fun accessory that keep you mindful of the passing of time. But they should also have graphics that are easy to read and understand and a font that is pleasing to your eye. Choose a calendar with numbers that won’t have you squinting and a layout that is easy to scan. 


Wall calendars come in a variety of formats, from minimalist versions that simply display numbered days and months to those with blank squares for every day of the month that allow you to note upcoming events or keep track of chores. If you keep a calendar on your phone, you might choose a small decorative wall calendar that’s more about the art and graphics than an organizational device. If you prefer having tactile visible reminders on the wall to keep you and your family on task and remind them of important dates, choose a large-format calendar with plenty of white space for personalizing. 

  • What is the standard size of a wall calendar?

    Wall calendars come in different sizes and formats. But wall calendars are frequently found in 8-by-11- and 12-by-12-inch sizes, either rectangular or square formats. As always, choose what works best for you and your space. 

  • How do you hang a calendar on the wall?

    There are a variety of ways to hang both pictures and calendars. Wall calendars made of lightweight paper often come with a hanging mechanism. Depending on the size of your calendar, you might be able to pin it to the wall with a thumbtack, hammer a small nail into the wall, or use a removable adhesive hook. Larger, heavier wall calendars might require a picture hook or a simple nail in the wall. 

  • When do next year’s calendars come out?

    Like Christmas decorations at the mall, next year’s calendar seems to come out earlier every year. Because calendars of all types are a popular Christmas gift option, manufacturers release next year’s models in plenty of time for the holiday shopping season. While release dates may vary, you can generally be sure that calendars will be available in late summer or early fall. Some particular products may sell out as the year comes to a close, but generally you can still find current-year calendars after the year has already started.
