COLOURFUL is a 2014 Letterpress Desk Calendar that is printed with a 50-year-old vintage platen press. It’s printed on 100% cotton, extra thick card stock. Our 100% cotton card stock is made from textile scraps, making it a tree-free eco-friendly product. Each month has a unique design, so you’ll never tire of them.
Each printed piece goes through the press twice, once for each color. The corners are then rounded with a manual die cutting machine. The calendar includes a handmade wooden stand that can be re-used for years to come.

I've only been able to print a small sample run of one of the months due to the high cost of printing and materials. Letterpress is a long process involving very expensive materials and often very old presses. I'd like to do a full print run before the holidays and new year.
Risks and challenges
The calendars are printed with a 50-year-old platen press. These presses were made with such quality and workmanship that they last for a very long time. Because the calendars are printed with a very old machine, the main challenge would be to make sure that the printing is consistent and that every calendar is as perfect as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
