Update… Get Your Free Artsy 2018 Calendar

This is the place to be to sign up to get an email notification when Simple Decorating Tips publishes a new post!

You will receive access to a custom calendar, which is a free printable artsy 2018 calendar, mostly as a thank you gift from me to you for signing up to follow along with (from my own personal photo collection, digitally modified)

Even if you have enough calendars, I think the original artwork is frameable! 😉 I did take all the photos… if you’re curious about any of them, feel free to ask and I’ll share with you where/when it was from!

Just to give you a peek… February’s featured artsy picture I took last summer while visiting Peak’s Island on the coast of Maine. It was such a pretty little cottage, happily announcing ‘welcome’ with a rambling vine over the door arched arbor, I couldn’t resist.

So, how do you get your calendar?


At the bottom of this post you’ll see a form, just fill out your email, then be sure to check your email to verify it went to the correct address, and you’ll receive an email with the link for the free printable calendar.

(Though I’m super excited about being able to offer this to you, I’m certainly a novice at this part of technology… so please notify me via email:, asap if you have any issues receiving the email, or being able to download the calendar, or are unable to print it properly. Each month should print on a single 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper)

If you don’t want to print it at home, or want really nice quality prints, Office Depot makes beautiful color copies. I like to get their color laser prints. No need to stand in line and wait for your prints to get done, you can do the entire thing online and then just stop by and pick up the prints. So convenient. Here’s the link for Office MaxDepot printing to get you started.

Here are a couple of Office Depot printing tips: First of all, for a great paper choice for this calendar, I’d recommend ‘cardstock standard whites 110#’ for a nice stiff page, that’s in a matte finish, (the gloss finish wouldn’t allow you to write notes on your calendar).

Also, there is a special instructions box you can fill out at the bottom of the ‘advanced’ tab when placing your order, I’d write something like this in that box: “Please be sure complete picture, including black frame on all 4 sides of each calendar month, shows up on the print on a single page of paper.” That way they will take special care to be sure it’s printing correctly.

Oh and if you already are a follower, I’d still love to share a free artsy 2018 calendar with you… just email me and I’ll email you the link to get one too!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please feel free to follow and share this blog with your friends, as well as on Facebook, Pinterest, Flipboard, Bloglovin, YouTube and now Instagram!  I appreciate you reading along.

      You’re so welcome Judy! Be sure to download it, so it prints correctly. If you try to print it direct from dropbox, it doesn’t seem to print correctly.

      Yay! I’m so glad Barbara. 🙂 Let me know if you have any issues with downloading or printing it… (first time kinks may need to get worked out a bit)
