On this blog we have talked about Kickstarter a few times in the past (5 Tips for Getting Funded on Kickstarter, Project Natalia and Fund a New Business Concept with Kickstarter) and we have reason to talk about it again because another one of our alums has a project on the social funding website. This project, started by Janie Trinh, is called Quolender and, as the name suggests, it’s a calendar that features a meaningful quote for each month. But the cool thing about this calendar is that it uses letterpress printing, a style that is rarely used anymore.
From the Quolendar Kickstarter page:
Modern technologies have put many things, literally, into the “cloud.” They have given us many digital conveniences but they have also made us rather detached from our own physical world. Take the calendar as an example. To view a nice calendar with minimalistic designs, many of us would need to pull out our smart phones and navigate through our touch screens.
Instead, wouldn’t it be nice to glance at the corner of your desk and see an elegantly designed letterpress calendar? The 2013 Quolendar brings the natural beauty, sights, and touch of life…to your life.
The 2013 Quolendar is a hand-crafted letterpress desk calendar that combines vintage design with a clean, modern look. Each month reveals a carefully selected quote that is sometimes humorous, sometimes inspirational. It’s simply meant to put a smile on your face or give you that extra motivation in life to do the things you want.
These calendars look great and they would make an excellent present for someone.
