ZOMBIES in the House

We like zombies -- you like zombies (or you probably have a zombie fanatic in your circle), so we thought it would be fun to create and print a 2014 zombie inspired calendar. We designed this calendar not only to keep you on track but also to bring a smile to your face and your walls. Our 2014 Zombie in the House Letterpress Wall Calendar is printed by hand at our letterpress shop on our 60-70 year-old vintage printing presses--right here in the heart of the southwest.

The Calendars

We created our zombie inspired calendar with a unique design for each month for your viewing pleasure. Every calendar page is hand-fed through the press at least twice -- one pass for each color. You can select from two paper choices: One is printed on thick white 100% cotton fine art paper (you can feel the punch!) and the other is printed on the kraft chipboard for that vintage look and feel (chipboard has a cool retro vibe and is a harder material so it will have less punch than the cotton paper).

We did some letterpress test printing on a couple of the months of the calendar and they look terrific!

 This is a close up of the letterpress printed December page where you can see and feel the punch.

Below are the zombie inspired designs for all 12 months. The images were created digitally and will be letterpress printed.

 Chipboard Calendar

Here are sample of calendar pages letterpress printed on chipboard for that vintage look and feel. 

Below are the zombie inspired designs for all 12 months. The images were created digitally and are shown on chipboard--the final calendar will be letterpress printed. The designs are the same for both the white and chipboard calendars but because the materials are different, it creates two different looks! 

Calendar Details 

The calendars will be wire-bound with a punched hole for hanging on the wall. The page size is 5.5 inches wide by 8.5 inches tall.

Letterpress Greeting Cards & Poster

In addition to the zombie calendars, we created four fun letterpress printed greeting cards and a limited edition Zombie in the House poster. The greeting cards are versatile and can be used for many occasions!

Greeting Card Details:

The greeting cards are A2 size (5.5" x 4.24") and letterpress printed on thick white 100% cotton fine art paper. The cards are blank inside so you can customize your greeting and they come with coordinating color envelopes. Below are the zombie inspired designs for the four greeting cards. The designs were created digitally and will be letterpress printed.

Limited Edition Letterpress Poster

We designed a cool limited edition letterpress Zombies in the House poster with antique wood type. The size is 12" x 18" and will be printed by hand in multiple colors on kraft chipboard.

Risks and challenges

We will do everything humanly possible to make sure that all aspects of this project stay on track. We have experience meeting deadlines in a KICKSTARTER project because we printed the Greetings From Nowhere letterpress cards by Safwat Saleem on a very short timeframe. (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/safwat/greetings-from-nowhere-letterpressed-holiday-cards…) It was a very successful KICKSTARTER campaign.

We plan to ship early bird items by the 3rd week of December and the other items by the end of December.
