This is the culmination of years of sci-fi fandom and design practice. I want to create a high quality calendar that will help everyone make their home or workspace approximately 45% nerdier and 100% better-looking (Ok, maybe not a 100%, but better-looking. Honest.).
The calendar collects time travel events from films, comics, TV shows and videogames and puts them on a single timeline that plays out over the year. You're getting about 2.6 billion years of time travel in 12 months.
There are 97 different properties in the calendar. Each one has a unique icon that represents it. Some of these only show up once (Calvin and Hobbes, I'm looking at you), while others show up multiple times (Star Trek, anyone?). All together, there are 155 instances of time travel. Aside from learning about time travel movies you've never heard of, it's always fun to see properties you're familiar with line up with each other. Did you know that while Marty was saving Doc Brown from Mad Dog Tannen in 1885, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were battling Leatherhead aboard a speeding train? Now you do.
Calendar dimensions: 7" x11" closed, 7" x 22" open.
Printed on 80# French Paper Construction Grout Gray.Printed by Carlson Print Group in Minnesota. They did a fantastic job on the 2011 calendar.
All of the funds raised are going towards the production costs associate with the calendar and EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter rewards. If this project is funded, no extras will be available for post-Kickstarter purchasers. It'll also cover shipping fees for domestic orders. International backers, I hate doing it, but I have to ask that you pay an additional $10 for shipping.
All extras are EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter rewards. If this project is funded, no extras will be available for post-Kickstarter purchasers. No wallpapers, buttons, posters, thank you page mentions. None of that specialness. So, knowing that, here's what you'll get for helping me make this a reality.
Project Updates // Man, I am excited to see this thing through. Seeing things jump off a computer screen and into reality is always a blast. You'll be privy to the entire process. By donating $5 or more you'll get updates and we'll see this thing through together.
The Wallpaper Pack // Like Comics? Pretty up that computer of yours with the comic-themed wallpaper, featuring all of the comic icons from the calendar. This goes for Film, TV and Video game lovers. Donate $10 or more and you'll get this 4-pack.
The 2012 Time Travel Calendar // If you've watched the video and read this far, I don't need to explain this thing again, do I? Right-o. Any donation of $25 or more will net you this bad boy. Donations of $45, $55, $100 or $500 will net you MULTIPLE calendars. You know, for your past and future selves. Or a friend. Probably a friend.
The 2 1.25" Button Pack // Buttons are great, right? Sturdy and reusable, unlike their lesser cousins, the flimsy stickers. Put these rad little buttons on your backpack, your purse, or your murse! Donate $30 or more and you'll get a pack of 2 buttons to go along with your calendar.
Silkscreen Poster (edition of 50) // A poster! More specifically, an 18 x 24" poster with every icon I designed for the calendar. It'll be printed on a the same French Paper as the calendar, so it'll look nice AND match. There's lots to look at, and you can use the calendar as a key if an icon stumps you. This reward unlocks at a donation of $70. There are only 50 of 'em!
Thank You Page Mention // This thing, literally, would not happen without you. You deserve credit. Any donation above $55 will get you your name in the special thank you page.
Extra buttons // More buttons! Donate $100 and you'll get 10 more 1.25" buttons of YOUR favorite icon.
Custom Icon + buttons // Donate $500 and you'll get 20 1.25" buttons of a custom icon that I'll design specifically for YOU.
Surprises // Pending the successful funding of this project (and then some), I have a few more ideas for some more fun extras that will be available to everyone that donates $25 or more. Again, should these come to pass, they will be Kickstarter EXCLUSIVE.
Thanks so much for taking the time to learn more about The 2012 Time Travel Calendar. If you could help made it a reality via a pledge, I'd really appreciate it. If not, just spreading the word would be a great help.
I'd love to have your support and make this calendar happen. Thanks again!
