It’s that time of year again. School has started, summer is ending, and the new 2023 calendar printables are ready for you. Whether you’re eager to set up your planner for the new year or are just gathering what you need for later, I hope you find a calendar below to fit your needs.

The Forest Simplicity Collection

Each year when I start to design a new collection of planner printables, I always start with the dated calendars. I look over all your comments and requests and try to choose something that I hope will work well for everyone.

This year, I opted to try my hand at something that’s been often requested – a neutral design. It was a little outside my comfort zone and I struggled with it for a while. Until I was taking my dogs for a walk along our walking trails and realized that the forest was the perfect inspiration I needed. The various shades of green and brown popped against the snow. And as soon as we got home I got straight to work designing the collection I’m calling, Forest Simplicity.

The different shades of green were chosen carefully and used sparingly. The shades of brown were chosen to ground the design and bring in that very neutral feel. I kept the design to a minimal to make it as ink friendly as I could.

Adding some colour for those that like it, while keeping it neutral it to work with stickers, highlighters, and other ephemera that people like to use to decorate their planners, was tricky. I wanted ink to be able to pop so that your plans were lost on the page.

I truly do hope that you enjoy using these calendars as much as I enjoyed designing them.

Now I’ll stop my rambling so you can check out the 2023 calendar printables for yourself.

A Note About The 2023 Calendar Printables

There have been a few changes made to the calendars this year that I want to quickly highlight before you download your copies.

READ THIS FIRST

  • Year on a Page Calendars are now included with each dated calendar. If you would like just the Year on a Page, just pick one of the calendars below and print only page one.
  • The half-size calendars have been redesigned to print double-sided more easily. Be sure to read the printing instructions.
  • The half-size calendars can now also be folded in half after printing to create a notebook you can use as is or add to a traveler’s notebook.

Now that we’ve covered that – let’s jump right to the printables.

Two Pages per Month 2023 Calendars

Year after year, this layout continues to be the most popular. The two page layout offers more room for planning and the lined sections offer plenty of extra space for notes and reminders.

As always, you get to choose from a Sunday or Monday start.

There are no special printing instructions for the letter-size version. If your printer has a duplex option, just be sure to select the Long-Edge Binding or Flip on the Long-Edge option.

Printing the half-size version is a little different than in the past couple of years. This year I have them designed on letter paper like I used to. However, the layout of the pages was done so that you can still create a booklet from them if you’d like.

Printing Instructions for the Half-Size Two Pages per Month Calendars

For those who want to print them double-sided.

  1. Open the file in your PDF reader.
  2. Select Two-Sided or Double Sided if you have a duplexer, or select Odd Pages if you manually flip.
  3. If your printer has a duplexer, be sure that Short-Edge binding or Flip on Short Edge is selected.
  4. Print.
  5. If you need to manually flip your pages, do that now and the print Even Pages.
  6. Cut in half and punch as normal OR fold in half to create a booklet.

For those that want to print them single-sided, you just need to press print. Cut and punch as normal.

Single Page per Month 2023 Calendars

Even though this layout isn’t as popular as the other, I include it every year because I know there are still lots of people out there who like to use them. Personally, use both layouts. I love the versatility that the single page per month calendar brings to my planning.

They make wonderful meal planners, work out trackers, project planners and more. The half letter size fit in most lockers making them ideal for students or anyone who has a locker at work or the gym.

And they too come in your choice of Sunday or Monday start.

Just like the two pages per month layout, there are no special printing instructions for the letter-size version. If your printer has a duplex option, just be sure to select the Long-Edge Binding or Flip on the Long-Edge option.

Printing Instructions for the Half-Size Single Page per Month Calendars

These print the same as the two-page ones, but I’ll share the instructions here too.

For those who want to print them double-sided.

  1. Open the file in your PDF reader.
  2. Select Two-Sided or Double Sided if you have a duplexer, or select Odd Pages if you manually flip.
  3. If your printer has a duplexer, be sure that Short-Edge binding or Flip on Short Edge is selected.
  4. Print.
  5. If you need to manually flip your pages, do that now and the print Even Pages.
  6. Cut in half and punch as normal OR fold in half to create a booklet.

For those that want to print them single-sided, you just need to press print. Cut and punch as normal.

      Hi Lorelei, thank you so much for letting me know about that. I’m so sorry about this. I’m fixing it right now and I’ll replace it with the corrected one. Again, I’m so sorry for the mix up.
