I made calendars for our family for the first two years after my ds was born. Last year I just had too much on my plate, and in the new year all I did was field calls about where their calendars were! Anyway, I did the 8 1/2 x 11, with a downloaded calendar template, like the pp said, printed the calendar side on the wrong side of the photo paper and then put them through the printer again to do the pictures on the right side of the photo paper. It was really time consuming, (especially since there were multiple versions for different family members - yk, one side of divorced family couldn't have pictures of the other side of the family...ugh) and after I had them spiral bound at Kinko's I think they worked out (with cost of paper, ink & binding) to about $20 each (not cheap). Some online photo places will do it all for you if you just submit the photos, too. However, they are absolutely wonderful, your family will be gaga over them, and I'm so glad I have them - I wish I had time to keep doing them but now with 2 kids it's too hard!
