Best online site to make own photo calendar?

I want to make up my own calendar for a friend's birthday. I know you can do it on photobucket, but I don't like the set up. I added pictures and they made them all really tiny in the final product. It was only $14.99 though. What are some other sites that do a good job?

    I haven't made a calendar yet but I love Winkflash. I have had pictures printed up from them before.

    Did one thru Wally World & it came out really nice.

    I made one through Shutterfly and was very happy with it.

    I'm trying to make one through Shutterfly right now. They're telling me that a lot of my pictures are not good enough quality to be printed, but I don't have any other copies. I know that if I printed them myself they might be a little pixeled, but not horrible. Should I not get them printed in the calendar?

    Since it's for a gift for your friend I don't think you should. Is possible that the pictures can be scanned at a higher resolution? (If resolution is the problem) Or do you have other pictures you can use?

    Or make a photo gift that doesn't require so many pictures. But definitely don’t use the poor quality ones, it really looks bad to use pixilated pictures, especially if they will be kind of big.

    I disagree, I think your friend will appreciate the pictures even if they are not the best quality. I'm assuming they are pictures that will mean something special to her, like the two of you together. You could go somewhere like Target in person to have the calendar made if the website won't let you.

    Or you could do another photo craft. One year, a friend gave me a nice frame (the kind that holds several pictures). Another friend painted a nice little jewelry box for me and shellacked a picture of us together on the inside. These are something she can keep forever, whereas a calendar is only good for one year. But the calendar idea is still really sweet, so if that's what you want to do, go for it!

    I just made some for xmas, and I used Walmart. They turned out great and were around 16 bucks each. You then have the options of picking them up when they are done, no shipping charge, or have them shipped to you.

    That's what I was thinking. I wouldn't really care if it was a calendar for me and the pictures weren't perfect quality.
