€15,808

244

Be creative in 2020 following every month words of wisdom of the Mr Cup creative manifesto letterpress calendar. It is a hand-numbered limited edition.

Update 01

The delivery date is well December 2019 and not 2020, I can not change it... Check calendars descriptions for more updates on papers and hot foil! 

Update 03

We hit 150 %! It unlocks the sleeve/stander!  

Every year, 2 editions are available: Deluxe and Standard. Here are the details.

 I met the Foilco team and I am pleased they are part of this year's edition as partners. I also have confirmation for Senses papers! So I am pleased to said papers colors and hot foil choices!  

The cover is designed by me! But the idea behind this is a collaborative project: I ask graphic designers and typographers to create unique works. This year's edition will feature exclusive designs by Scotty Russell, Kelsy Stromski, Srdjan Vidakovic, Nikki Mihalik, Viktor Baltus, Cody Petts, Jason Carne, Reno Orange, Salih Kucukaga, Jef Millotte and Benjamin Carr.  

The calendar is printed in France, at Studio Pression. 

Letterpress printing has the ability to create relief into the paper by adding tons of pressure while printing. It’s called deep impression, or debossing. And it’s done at the same time, printing AND debossing, always one color at a time. The thicker the paper, the deeper the impression. For a crisper effect, we use much harder magnesium plates instead of photopolymer. Hot foil uses the same machine but instead of ink,  pre-dried ink or foils are transferred on the paper at high temperatures.

Here come some pictures of last year printing.

Kickstarter adds together reward production costs with shipping costs. Therefore, although we need :

Paper and Printing: ±6400 € Post costs and order fulfillment: ±700 € Designers: 2400 € 5% Kickstarter fee: ±500 €

This raises our funding goal to a total 10,000€ (± USD$11,700). All extra will be used following these steps...

Update: the first target has been reached, the next one is 150% to get the sleeve/stander ! 

Earlier this year I create a special edition of my playing cards deck. I put these new editions available here too. It gave you an idea of the printing details. 

TIMELINE

Printing will start as soon as possible to be sure everything is ready to be sent before December 2019 to arrive in time for the Christmas season. By mistake, I state 2020 on the pledges info but it is well 2019! 

Risks and challenges

Such a pleasure to reinvent the project every year and see more and more people interesting. The main challenge is to reach to goal over a limited time period. I hope the highlight of Kickstarter will make to costs funding possible in 3 weeks only.
