Printed by hand on a 1960's letterpress. 100% cotton heavy cardstock.
I've always admired letterpress printing. Those old machines are just too cool! It's an art form that's come back full swing.
The calendars are printed on a 55pt heavy cotton stock. Each card goes through the press twice, once for each color (black and gray). The stock is then cut down to size with a die cutting machine. This gives them their rounded corners. It's a very long and tedious process, that's why letterpress printing isn't cheap by any means.
The stand is crafted from 100% eco-friendly bamboo.
I only have July and August, 2013 printed. I need to order $3000 worth of calendars in order to print the whole year and make them cost effective. Pledge $35 and help make the Type calendar. I'll send you one for your desk or countertop. (1 pledge includes a calendar as well as the bamboo stand.)
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
As you can see, the printing process is very hands on. The challenge is to make each and every calendar as perfect as possible. The pressmen have years of experience and are very good at what they do.
