About this project

Product Story

Last year our friends on Kickstarter successfully raised $30,000 to help fund the first TYPE Calendar.

After a long awaited year, the Type is now back! It's your turn to help fund this project so I can fire up the vintage letterpress for your new 2015 TYPE Calendar. 

 

 

Ingredients

The TYPE Calendar is printed on thick (55pt) cotton stock. All 12 months are pressed twice, once for each color (black and gray). I then cut the card stock down to size with a die cutting machine. This provides us with the clean beveled corners and a perfect cut each time. 

The cotton cards sit neatly in premium, eco-friendly bamboo. Each stand is hand cut, polished, and engraved with the product logo. 

 

 

 

 

Passion

Being a letterpressman is a long and tedious art form that is over 150 years old. My goal is to keep the letterpress tradition alive, one product at a time. The material, time intensity, and precision makes letterpress products quite costly. But, when it's done right - it creates the finest paper products in the world.

 

 

I Need Your Help 

The TYPE Calendar is an extremely large press run. To make the product possible, I need to purchase $6,400 worth of paper and bamboo material. This will make the product cost effective for everyone. Pledge today and I'll send you a TYPE for your desk or countertop. 

For any questions at all, please message me. Thanks everyone for making the TYPE Calendar possible. I'm super excited to fire up the press!

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

As you can see, the printing process is very hands on. The challenge is to make each and every calendar as perfect as possible. I have the experience, I just need the funds to purchase an extremely large amount of premium bamboo and cotton card stock. With your help, we can make this happen. Thanks everyone for your help!
