2018 Dated Monthly Calendars – Single Page Edition
I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on all the 2018 calendars. This year I’ve got a couple little surprises in store, but I’ll share more on those in a little bit. First things first, we need to take a peek at the 2018 dated monthly calendars. Today I’ve got the single page layouts in both half and full size for you. I really can’t wait to see what you think, so let’s jump on down shall we?
Each year I like to change things up. Play around with new fonts and colours. I try my hardest to keep the printables simple and ink friendly, but still bring in a few fun elements. Recently I’ve started giving each design a name so that it’s easier for me to keep track of, and easier for you to find what you’re looking for. So far we’ve got:
- Pretty in Pastel (2015)
- Understated Rainbow (2016)
- Sunshine Skies (2017) – collection page is coming.
- and now Peachy Green for 2018.
Ready to see the monthly designs?
2018 Dated Monthly Calendars
Both of the calendars I’m sharing today feature a single page per month. Each PDF file has all 12 months of the year in it to make printing them easier. First up, let’s take a look a the full-size version.
I kept it really simple and clean, relying on the fonts and the dashed lines to help add a little something special to them.
If you’re new to Scattered Squirrel, to snag a copy of any of the printables for yourself, just simply click the pictures of the ones you want and the PDF version will open for you to save. All of the printables are for personal use only.
I made a change to the half-size version. You might have noticed in the picture that January is sitting above July. I did this on purpose so that they can be printed double sided. Figuring out the layout wasn’t nearly as tricky as I first thought it would be. There are no special printing instructions to follow. Just print double-sided as normal and cut the page in half before hole punching to fit your planner.
I don’t normally plan a full year in advance, but I know that many of you need too. Whether you’re a teacher, a small business owner, blogger, have things coming up that you need to plan for, or just like having next year’s calendar ready if you need it – I’m thrilled to be able to offer you this option early.
A Few New Changes
This year I wanted to change this up a bit. I’m working on adding two new sizes to the dated calendars this year – personal and pocket size. Both are proving to be a little more tricky than I anticipated, especially since I want them both to be easy to print double-side. Look for those to be coming out later in June.
Every year I get asked if I will be making a dated version in a previous year’s design. Nope! Creating the calendars is really time consuming. It’s just not feasible for me to do all of them. However, for those who really want them – I will be taking orders for dated versions. These will not be free options. If you’re interested, send me an email (Contact Me Page) for more information.
Now It’s Your Turn
I’d love to hear what you think of the new design. Do you start planning for next year early? I’d love to hear more about how you’re using these printables. Drop me a line in the comments below and let me know!
I’m happy to hear that! 🙂
I love your monthly calendars!! I use them to plan my shifts as well as my 3 kids and husband! I love the colors and how homey they feel – especially hanging on my wall.
I am in need of a printable 2019 as my schedule comes out a year in adavance (April to April) Do you have a 2019 Calendar out yet? I can’t seem to find one on the site. Thanks!
Hi Laurie, thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so happy that you like the calendars. I haven’t started working on the 2019 ones yet. They usually come out mid-April or early May. But I’ll make a note that earlier would be better, and see if I can get them done a little earlier this year.
hello I was wondering if you a link for the 2 page per month spread for 2018. I love all your templates! especially the website password template! thanks!
I do, you can find it at the very top of the Blog Page. (Just click the blog button on the top menu bar) All three posts for the 2018 calendars are just under my header.
I was wondering if you could make a small change so that on one page it would be January and under February. So that the months will be in order. Last years it was in order but for 2018 it starts with January the skips to July. Thank you and I love your calendars it helps me with my school studies and keeping my assignments organize.
Hi Mary, I will take a look and see what I can do. I did it this way to make printing doublesided easier, but I should be able to make the other version as well. I’m not sure when it will be finished, but I’ll move it up my priority list and see about getting it out before the end of the month.
It would be nice if the half page option was sized for half size paper, 5.5 x 8.5 instead of full size and just cut in half. I’m struggling to find good calendar and planner pages that are actually half page/A5 so I don’t have to resort to just printing the full size on smaller paper, which leaves a lot of unusable space on the sides.
Hi Erynn, I design the pages this way because most people don’t print on half-size pages. If you scale a full-size page to 70% it should print on a half page without too much wasted space. If you have Adobe Reader for printing, it will give you a preview of the scaled page so you can adjust it as needed. I’ll look into make the half-size pages indvidual pages in the future. It’s certainly an option I can try to make happen.
I love your stuff. When I need to print out calendars, planning pages, etc. I know exactly where to go.
Awww, thanks so much Suzanne! I’m so happy to hear that you’re finding the printables so useful for you.
Thank you for the calendars… Do you make the one month – 2 page calendar starting on a Monday instead of Sunday?
These are great! I found you in a search for a calendar to track this year’s birthday coupons. (I *really* love birthday coupons, and get a little obsessive about trying to use all of them!!) Thank you so much for making these awesome calendar pages! 😀
For some reason when I print out the half-size calendar sheets, the dotted lines don’t print. Any idea what may be causing this to happen?
Hi Donna, I am so sorry to hear that. I’m not an expert with printers. My first thought was that perhaps one of the colours on your ink had run out, but you said just the dotted lined, not the days of the week too, so I don’t think that’s it. The only other think I can think of is that perhaps the file got a little wonky when it was downloaded. I know it happens sometimes. If you’ like, I can email a fresh copy to try. I just need to know which size and if it’s ok to use your email address to send it to you.
Love the half size with the January July print, very cool Thanks
I wondering if you have Sept 2018- Aug 2019 available?
Not yet, but I’m working on an academic calendar for the 2018/2019 school year. Those will be coming out this coming week. I do have 2019 calendars that run Jan to Dec already up on the blog if you need something for next year more immediately.
