The printable calendar 2017 is exactly what I was looking for to keep our family organized. I write all important dates on the calendar at the beginning of the year and then use small post-it-notes for appointments that might change. The calendar has a narrow metal band top and bottom with a center tab for hanging. The paper used is thin and could be a bit thicker to make it easier to write on. I used the same calendar all last year with no problems so reordered for this year. I have been using this elegant, low-tech solution made of recycled materials in planning and scheduling my activities for many 2017 calendar printable now.
