Can I customize the back of my calendar?

The backs of Lulu calendars are not customizable.


How many months can I have in my calendar?

Your calendar can contain from six to 48 months.


Can I change the language displayed on my calendar?

Yes - Depending on your reasons for changing language, here are several options:

  • If your project is in draft, change your preferred locale / language in which you wish to create your calendar. The days and months will switch to the selected language.
  • If you have a multilingual family, create and publish your calendar in one language and place your order. Then switch to the locale / language and click the revise link displayed next to your calendar. The days and months will display in the selected language; however, any events you previously entered will remain in the original language. Publish and place your order for the revised calendars in the new language.
    • Note: Return to your preferred country store to purchase your revised calendar in your preferred currency.
  • If you wish to sell your calendar in multiple languages you must create and publish individual projects for each language selecting the locale / language for each project.


What is the orange triangle with the exclamation point?

Image dimensions are adjusted to fit the frame into which they are placed. Since Lulu does not modify the image itself, this stretching or shrinking forces the image resolution to change. The resolution becomes higher if an image is shrunk and lower if the image is stretched. If you place an image in a frame and its resolution drops below the recommended 300 dpi, an orange triangle with an exclamation point (!) displays on the picture. This indicates that the printed image will be coarse and pixilated, and you probably won't be happy with the result. Try placing the image in a smaller frame or zooming out of the image.


What is the blue check (tick) mark on my image thumbnail?

When you use an image in your calendar, we put a little check on it to help you remember that you have already used it.


There is also a Hide used images option at the bottom of the Project Images window.
