About

Take time for reflection

Journaling doesn't have to be daunting...  It can be a simple act centered around a moment of reflection.  Calendarium provides a contained, yet comfortable area for you to write just a few sentences about your experience of being alive that day.

Calendarium helps to lower the barrier to meaningful journaling.

See each day as part of the larger picture of your life
See each day as part of the larger picture of your life

Over time, users (writers/journalers) begin to see each day as part of a larger picture.  Some days may be hard or disappointing and all-consuming. But when you see such days in the context of a month that's varied by joyful and connected moments, you get to experience the supportive context of your life.

Making Calendarium

Calendarium is made as sustainably as possible in Portland, Oregon.  Local letterpress and offset printing, local book binding, US-milled premium recycled paper, and planting one tree for each Calendarium purchase through the One Tree Planted program.

Every aspect of Calendarium is artistically designed and crafted.   

The 120 gsm Neenah paper used in Calendarium is fountain pen friendly, does not feather, does not bleed, and has excellent ink shading and reticulation.  Additionally, this 30% recycled paper is Forest Stewardship Council certified and US-milled using renewable Green-e certified energy.

Supporting this project

I'm very excited to bring this project to life!  When you back this project you'll  receive a Calendarium for yourself or a loved-one. 

Thank you all.  

Warmly,

Phillip

Risks and challenges

I've been coordinating with local printers, and the timeline we've allotted should be generous enough for holiday shipping, but it's possible that delays could occur.

Some paper and color ink may be slightly different color than what is pictured in this Kickstarter.
