Each back cover has pre-placed photo boxes depending on the number of months you selected. For example, a 12-month calendar has 12 photo boxes so you can add in the same images you used throughout your calendar for each month. We also left empty space so that you can add in your business information, contact information, a list of sponsors, etc.

Note: On the back cover, if you leave the empty area on the right blank, it will print blank. We will not pre-populate that area for you.

If you would like to customize your back cover, all you have to do is delete the photo boxes on that page. From there, you can add your own photos, text boxes, background, clipart, etc.
