About this project
IF you share TODAY, I will email you FREE PDFs on THURSDAY, December 24th!! (PDFs will include this week through May 1, 2016) Pivot Planner needs your help. You see, I don't really have a following, and to keep this going year after year, I need help getting the word out now. Like, right now. Now, now. So, I'm going to offer free PDFs to folks who share this Kickstarter video right now. Sharing will be the only way to get free PDFs, and believe me every share helps. When you're starting from zero, every share makes a big difference. So, before anything else, thank you. This project has already reached it's funding goal, but we still need more support to establish a following.
Here's how it works:
- 1 Share a link NOW to this Kickstarter project on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and/or Pinterest. You can use this short link: kck.st/1ME2eLk and/or @pivotplanner. Please share where you can have the most influence. That's the whole idea.
- 2 Take a screenshot of your share.
- 3 Email the screenshot to firstname.lastname@example.org
- 4 Optional: Put "PDF" in the subject line somewhere.
- 5 Optional: tell us how you plan to use it.
- 6 Optional: ASK YOUR FOLLOWERS TO SHARE
- 7 On Monday, November 23rd, receive PDFs including the current week through May 1st 2016.
Rewind. So, I designed this layout over a year ago to address my own wish for a way to display weeks better than typical calendars. Most calendars, whether they are on paper or a screen, don't let you see ten or more weeks ahead without flipping or scrolling. That's not so helpful if you're mapping out a semester or managing an ad campaign. Traditional calendars also become a mess if you try to indicate an event that lasts for multiple weeks. Pivot Planner addresses these concerns.
Pivot Planner divides the year into quarters so you get four sheets to cover the year 2016 with the weeks established by the International Standards Organization not the US system. So, the weeks start on Mondays and the first and last weeks of the year always have seven days. (In the US system the first and last weeks of the year usually have awkward weeks that have fewer than seven days.)
DIMENSIONS: All four sheets are 17" tall and 25" wide.
MATERIALS: Pivot Planner is printed on a durable, opaque white material. The front side is laminated with a high-performance, clear, dry-erase film that accepts wet-erase and permanent marker inks. The back side is coated with a repositionable adhesive with a peel-away backing (similar to the peel-away backing of a bumper sticker).
Risks and challenges
Since I have already produced two runs of this product in the past 12 months, you can trust that I know what I'm doing. I have 50 sets of the 2016 Pivot Planner already in my current inventory, and I have my manufacturer poised to produce more of the 2016 Pivot Planner at the close of the funding period.
I will begin shipping immediately and the first backers will begin receiving their rewards in the first week of the 2016 Pivot Planner which begins on Monday, January 4th. (Pivot Planner weeks start on Mondays according to the 52 weeks set by the International Standardization Organization. ISO weeks always start on Mondays, and this year that Monday does not fall on January 1st. Confusing? Don't sweat it, because this only affects the first and last weeks of the year and most of the non-USA world uses this system. Most USA calendars have partial weeks for the first and last weeks of the year. ISO weeks always have 7 days per week.)
Even if something goes awry, the last rewards still will be shipped out before the end of January. That's a worst-case scenario. Worst case.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
