Posted: Friday, July 24, 2015 11:53:32 AM
Hello Designers!

You might have noticed that our calendar page looks a little different. It's new and improved to help you create designs more easily and make sure your customers have a great experience!

Here's what's new:

- Customers will now have the option to change any calendar to the current year or following years. That means, as designers, you won’t have to worry about republishing your calendar designs each year!

- 4 choices for included holidays: United States Events and Holidays, United States + Christian Events and Holidays, United States + Jewish Events and Holidays, None

United States Events and Holidays:
New Year's Day

None (no holidays)

- We now offer dates in different cultures and languages, including Dutch (Belgium and The Netherlands), English (U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, and New Zealand), French (Belgium, Canada, France, and Switzerland), German (Austria, Germany, and Switzerland), Spanish (Spain, U.S.) and Swedish.

Here are some tips for updating your calendars for the best customer experience:

• Remove the year from your calendar titles so that they will always be relevant. (e.g. update “Personalized 2015 Calendar” to “Personalized Calendar”)
• If there is text on the calendar that refers to the year (e.g. 2015), make that year a template object so the customer can change the year to the appropriate one. You can even use "20XX" to make it even clearer that this is an editable field for the customer.
• Update template object titles (Product page label) so that they do not include the year. (e.g. If a template object is labeled "January 2015", update to just "January" to avoid customer confusion)

Hello Designers!

We hope everyone has had a chance to check out our new Calendar design tool and all the improvements we have made to our calendar experience for Designers and customers.

One of our favorite new calendar features is the ability to add text and photos behind calendar gridlines to further enhance the personalization experience! You can enable this feature by marking the checkbox right above the Calendar Grid Style that reads Calendar Grid Transparency. This setting allows you to add design elements to the actual calendar grid of dates – a creative border around the grid, text marking special custom dates (e.g. “John’s Birthday”), fun graphics, and more.

Calendars make for great gifts for the person who has everything and with our updated tool in place, we are excited to highlight our calendars this holiday season on Zazzle.

We can't wait to see all of your great new calendar designs!

Happy designing!
