About

We believe in the beauty of typography. With obsession to details and love for simplicity & minimalism, our new 2018 calendar becomes much more than a poster. It is as a true piece of art that will enlighten your room and give your home a good feeling throughout the entire year.

The calendar comes in a limited series. We use letterpress to print copper metallic foil letters on beautiful uncoated paper combined with a marine blue pantone color. The combination of this high quality printing technique, used materials and colors is simply adorable. We guarantee you that the calendar will make you happy every time you look at it.

Here are some detailed images of what you can expect:

To come up with this years calendar design it took us 56 coffees and 79 layout drafts. The result is hopefully stunning.

We really, really really care about details. It is the perfect mix, between the right paper, right color and letterpressed shiny copper metal foil on top of it.

By helping funding our project, the poster will literally fly straight into your home and could look something like this: 

 

Once the poster is printed, each calendar will be carefully packed, wrapped in silk paper and shipped in a cardboard tube directly to you. We are starting to ship worldwide in mid to end November 2017 after all posters have been printed.

Special Thanks goes to Taylor Hawkins - an incredibly talented filmmaker from Seattle who supported us by providing footage from his visit at a letterpress printer. Please make sure to follow his work.  

A big thank you also goes to the letterpress printers from Ink Different who also supported us with few video shots.

All letterpress video shots are just for demonstration purposes to give you a better feel of the printing process and work that is involved as we havent started the production yet and hope for a positive outcome and a funded project that allows us to kickstart it as soon as possible.

Lastly a big thank you to Sofacompany for "borrowing" us their beautiful interior images with their incredible couches that helps us to visualize their calendar in an interior. 

Risks and challenges

Please note that slight color deviation in print may occur and that colors on your monitor can not display the printed version 100% accurately. However we try as hard as we can to deliver the best possible result.
Until this day we have not received a confirmation if the poster size will have the final size of 50x70cm or will have to be 1cm smaller on each size (49x69) due to the large letterpress form. However this should not have any effect on the standard frame sizes which should still be able to show the poster edge to edge as tested on a Ikea frame.
Without the needed support from you, we will not be able to realize the project as we insist on the highest standards in printing and materials. By not reaching our target goal we simply won't be able to print it.
