Here comes the first pictures of the printing of the calendar. I am at Studio Pression for some hours to see how it goes and it is amazing ! There are few hours left to get it with its wood stand on kickstarter.

The letterpress calendar is a project I launched in 2011. Each edition consists of 12 cards, each with its color in reference to the season. For the 2015 edition, in addition to hire more designers than last year, I decided to try printing "copperplate" on the cover the foil edging of 200 copies. If it improves the quality of the project, this also increases the costs. So I decided to use kickstarter to finance the project and expand brand awareness.

 

I proposed a black print for each pages keeping in mind the possible print multiple color if funding was a success. Print 12 cards in different colors requires more work, time, and therefore money than a simple black print. It is truly an improvement for the final product in my point of view. I consider offering this as an additional step in the fundraising campaign, but I finally decided to ask your opinion : black or color ? If the funding goes very high, I could have do 2 colors print (black + color), but this is much more expensive (in letterpress, it is one ink at a time…).

 

Many people who have discovered the calendar with this version is therefore expected to have a black print, while the "regulars" contacted me to tell me their disappointment to not have the colors. It's hard to please everyone, and if I could I would do two editions to satisfy everyone. The vote showed that 61% want the color, against 39 for black. I would have preferred to 90/10, but that is not the case. The calendar will be printed in 12 different colors to satisfy the most. The cover of the normal edition remains in "black and white".

Also, I have choose a little darker colors for the june and july month, here comes the final colors. (Please consider seeing it on screen and letterpress printed will be different !)

 

2 people canceled their contribution to the project, and I confess that this makes me greatly sad, although I understand it. I hope you once you have the calendar in your hands, you will be proud to have participated in this project.

Here come the plates, I will be happy to have them in hands tomorrow and can share printing of the cover while I visit Studio pression !

Here it comes, the last week of the letterpress calendar kickstarter. It is already a sucess as we reach the target, but more is always better, as every order is a proof that I am doing the things right ! Print of the front cover as started, but before we print the inside pages, I want to ask you a question :

 

Would you prefer the pages to be all printed in black or with 12 different colors ?

I want them in color, world is full of colors ! - 61.6%
I want them black, it would be so nice ! - 38.4%

Total votes: 211
The voting for this poll has ended on: December 2, 2015
 
Each card is printed with his own color, or fully in black... Printing start on Tusday, so survey end on wednesday night. Hope all of you will understand it is one or the other, and the more vote will be the final choice...
