Best 2018 Wall Art Calendars

Written by Adrienne

 

There’s nothing quite like a piece of wall art to breathe life into a space, and with wall art calendars, you get a beautiful new design every single month. Wall art calendars are as elegant as they are practical, and they make a great gift for an art aficionado or a freelance writer, designer, or blogger (hint, hint) in your life.

I’ve had one for the past three years, and as a blogger and freelance writer it not only lends me inspiration and good vibes as I work in my home office area, but it is also just really handy to have the date and the current month in view at all times. Who knew?

It’s also just really a fun experience, the anticipation of seeing what the next month’s designs will be. I always buy a calendar with a full year of designs that I love, then immediately forget what is coming up so it can surprise me every month. It’s worked out pretty well!

Without any further ado, here are some of the prettiest wall art calendars that could adorn your walls in 2018!

Monthly 2018 Wall Art Calendars

Paper Source 2018 Wall Art Poster Wall Calendar

My aunt gives me the Paper Source wall art poster wall calendar every year for Christmas and I love it! It is a creative Christmas gift I look forward to every year, and appreciate all year long. I love the pop art style illustrations and bright colors. Makes a great gift for creative people, including writers, artists, bloggers, and more!

Size: 12.25 x 19.25 inches
Hanging Style: Wire-bound with hanging loop

I had to put this calendar first on my list, because it is the wall art calendar I have on the wall directly above my computer monitor. Paper Source does an amazing job on their calendar. Each page is a pop art style illustration with a limited color palette and often a subtly repeating pattern. Usually the illustrations relate somewhat to the month, but not always. The page I have open right now of the 2017 calendar — November 2017 — has two tigers. But I know the page for December that is coming up has a beautiful poinsetta pattern that I am really looking forward to!

It is a delight to flip through each page of this calendar, which is really designed and sized like a poster. When the year is over, the fun is not done though. Each page has cut-out patterns printed on the back to make all kinds of paper goodies, from file folders, to gift tags and boxes, and more. They are strategically placed to use the pattern on the front side to its full potential.

The paper quality is very high. The pages are very thick, almost like cardstock. The calendar ships well-protected with a stiff cardboard backing and shrink wrapped. The spiral binding includes a metal half-loop that makes it easy to hang.

I can’t recommend this calendar enough — it is just such a high-quality piece of practical wall art. My aunt always gets me one every Christmas as a gift. I’m looking forward to hanging this one on my wall come January!
