Pistachio Press INK+WIT Letterpress Calendar

I love it when independent business owners get together for a collaboration, especially when the result is as drool-worthy as the Pistachio Press / INK+WIT 2008 letterpress calendar. Funky and sophisticated illustrations and colors grace this calendar, which will be ready for shipment on November 15.

Pre-order yours now ($35.00) at the INK+WIT or Pistachio Press Etsy shops. The letterpress calendar is limited to a run of 200, and I have a feeling that these will be going quickly.

Vermont based Pikku (love that name!) offers a little something for every paper lover. They first appeared at the National Stationery Show and are off to a fantastic start, with gorgeous gift wrap, hand screen printed, and letterpress designs.

I love their screen printed birch plywood calendars — so unique, and they can be either refilled for future years or used as art pieces when the calendar is finished. I’m also really digging their graphic gift wrap and the detailed handstitching work on their paper notions. Pikku is a must see for all of you paper cravers!

Pikku wares can be found at a variety of shops throughout the U.S., Canada, and Ireland. A detailed listing can be found on their website

Ilee 2008 Letterpress Calendar

More letterpress calendar goodness, this time from Ilee Papergoods. The designer (and paper lover) in me is absolutely drooling over all of the printing techniques used in this calendar — letterpress, silkscreen, foil stamping, handpainted accents, and I love the darker background papers used for October, November, and December. $20.00 each at Ilee Papergoods.

Hmm, am I going to have to start collecting calendars now, too?
