A couple of years ago I printed a calendar, size A4, in a very limited edition featuring my artwork. It was a bit nerve wracking not to know if the copies would sell or not. Luckily I sold almost all of them and shipped them all over the World.
The admirers of my art have grown quite a bit in number since then and have requested me to do another calendar.
So now I am asking you to help me reach my Kickstarter goal. If I do, I will get the calendars professionally offset printed instead of digitally. It basically means that I can make the calendars a lot bigger than last time (as requested) for almost the same price. It will be twice the size - A3 instead of A4.
By pre-ordering calendars/prints/cards you will pay for them in advance to be sure to get your hands on a copy of them. As long as I reach my Kickstarter goal of 38 600 Swedish crowns, I will print as many calendars as requested.
About the calendar
The calendar will feature 13 pages of artwork by me, especially designed for the year 2015.
It will be professionally printed by a local printing house in Sweden on a high quality glossy silk paper with a white Wire-O binding at the top.
Size: A3 (11.69x16.5inches / 297x420mm)

All of the pages have already been designed and proof printed so I just need your help to meet my Kickstarter goal to put this project into production. The calendars will be printed in November and I’ll be shipping them out in early December.
Shipping and packing
Because I´ll be doing all the packing and shipping myself together with family and friends, I can assure you that the products are packed well.
Risks and challenges
To minimize risks I have already made contact with the printing agency and had a proof printed copy made of the Calendar. This way I know that the quality of the calendars will be just the way I want it to be. I have also worked with the printing house before and know them to be both reliable and very good.
One risk to the project would be if the production of cards and calendars somehow gets delayed during printing.
But, fingers crossed, and if everything goes as scheduled, I'll start shipping rewards out by early December.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
