 The History: 

Animals From History was created in 2012 with a prior ebook Kickstarter campaign. One stretch goal was a mini 6"x6" 2014 calendar. People really liked it. So, I thought it would be a great way to ring in the new year with some more cheeky characters.

The Product Specs:

Calendar duration: January 2018 - January 2019

Available in two sizes....

A smart 6"x6" (15.24cmx15.24cm) which is perfect for small workspaces, office pollyanna, or stocking stuffers. Opened it measures 6"x12" (15.24cm x 30.48cm).

The 12"x12" (30.48cm x 30.48cm) is great for your kitchen or home office. Also a great gift to those animal loving friends who are organizational mavens. Opened it measures 12"x 24" (30.48 x 60.96cm).

Featured animals are four cats, four dogs, one skunk, one bird, one sloth, one chipmunk and one deer. The personality spoofs range from David Bowie to King Tut.

Early Bird Incentives:

It's first come, first serve for the early bird prices! Once each early bird tier completes then the calendar will continue to rise to it's market price. This is the only time to get the money saving rates!

The Shipping Goal:

I will immediately submit files to my printer once the funding becomes available (about one week after the campaign ends). My estimated backer shipping is the end of November arriving on your doorstep early December. All USA orders are guaranteed to arrive before the December holidays.

This product will only be created if I meet the funding goal listed at the top. If you pledge and the funding does not meet my goal then you are NOT charged. Totally risk free for you!

Will There Be Calendars for Sale After the Campaign Ends?

There is no guarantee that there will be any left to sell after the campaign ends. Any stragglers I will sell through my Etsy store but will NOT be ordering more. Only this campaign and any leftovers will be available.

In other words it's now or (possibly) never!

Risks and challenges

This is low risk because all the artwork has been finalized within the last three years. Also, the calendar design is complete! Only funding is needed for printing.

This campaign is kept simple due to the time sensitivity of calendar delivery. No stretch goals or additional rewards to take up time...just the printed calendar.
