About

Be creative in 2019 following every month words of wisdom of the Mr Cup creative manifesto letterpress calendar. It is a hand numbered limited edition.

 DELUXE EDITION FRONT COVER

 The deluxe edition will be on gold paper, with gold hot foil and black hot foil.

STANDARD EDITION FRONT COVER

 

The standard edition will be on black paper with gold hot foil. The inside papers are not selected yet but will be done soon.

THE CREATIVES

This year cover is designed by me! After 4 years asking worldwide designers to design it, I have this one in mind since I design the Ephemerid playing cards earlier this year. 

For every edition, I ask graphic designer and typographer to create unique font work. This year edition will feature unique designs by Nick Misani, Ginger Monkey Tom Lane , Dan Grett, Peter Voth, Kelsy Stromski, Christian Watson 1924.us, Tuyet Duyet, Reno Orange and more. They are currently working on the design and they will be shown as soon as possible during the campaign!

Here comes past years design to show the quality and idea of the project.

THE LETTERPRESS PRINTING & STUDIO PRESSION

The calendar is printed in France, at Studio Pression. Letterpress printing has the ability to create relief into paper by adding tons of pressure while printing. It’s called deep impression, or debossing. And it’s done at the same time, printing AND debossing, always one color at a time. The thicker the paper, the deeper the impression. For a crisper effect, we use much harder magnesium plates instead of photopolymer. Here come some pictures of last year printing.

GOAL / STEPS 

Kickstarter adds together reward production costs with shipping costs. Therefore, although we need :

Paper and Printing: ±6400 € Post costs and order fulfillment: ±700 € Designers: 2400 € 5% Kickstarter fee: ±500 €

This raises our funding goal to a total 10,000€ (± USD$11,700). All extra will be used following these steps...

 THE REWARDS

 THE EPHEMERID PLAYING CARDS DECK

Earlier this year I create my first playing cards deck. I put the Deluxe edition available here, it comes with a letterpress printed tuck case. 

 TIMELINE 

Print will start early November to be sure everything is ready to be sent before December to arrive in time for the Christmas season.

Risks and challenges

Such a pleasure to reinvent the project every year and see more and more people interesting. The main challenge is to reach to goal over a limited time period. I hope the highlight of Kickstarter will make to costs funding possible in 3 weeks only.
