We told you last week about the 2012 calendar templates for Word. Now its Office siblings Excel and PowerPoint have joined the party with their own free downloadable 2012 designs.
Which template you prefer will likely depend on your existing Office skills and needs; the main aim of the PowerPoint designs is to allow integration into your existing presentations, while the Excel set has the largest number of variants and can be adjusted for any year. Like the Word designs, they're available in Mon-Sun and Sun-Sat versions (honestly, does anyone plan their week Sun-Sat?)
