I don’t know how many project proposal meetings I’ve been in where. As if in a synchronized performance, everyone rotates their paper handouts. They hit the calendar page and find that, it was submitted in landscape orientation. The next few moments are a continuous rattling of paper as everyone not only flips back to compare dates with the rest of the proposal. It also adds the rotation required to view the Portrait calendar.

Actually, more often than not, it’s several rotations because everyone expects that landscape page to be oriented differently.

This year-long, monthly, blank calendar template is formatted to print in portrait orientation. Not only is it useful as a calendar for you to include in handouts for staff meetings, but it also works well as a log worksheet for clipboards, a syllabus calendar for students, or as a blank calendar for brainstorming sessions. Really, you can use it for anything requiring any customizable calendar in portrait format – long and narrow versus the wide and short layout of a landscape calendar.
So, Weeks begin with Monday and the weekends are highlighted – making it a great business style calendar.

Setting up the Calendar
There is no setup needed for this calendar – it’s ready to print. Note that cells are not designed for inputting text like in a typical Excel workbook.
Printing the Calendar
Each month can be printed individually. Select the worksheet at the bottom, then click on “File” in menu, and choose “Print”; Pick your options and hit the “Print” button.
To print the entire year – all 12 worksheets – in one print job, right-click on any worksheet tab and choose “Select All Sheets.” Then follow the steps, and you can see that you’re now printing 12 pages instead of one. Another way to print entire year at once is to select “entire workbook” in the document print settings dialog.
You can modify and format of the calendars by changing the font size or style of the “Months” and the “Days of the Week” titles just like any standard cell. You can also change the background color of the “Month” titles.
The default paper size for this calendar is US Letter, but design will look pretty much same if you choose to print on A4 size. Just pick “A4” in the “paper size” print settings.
Setting up and printing is easy, but what if you want to add week numbers or change the notes section? Here are some advanced tips on how you can change this calendar to fit your needs.
