precious objects</strong>, carrying a story and an authentic relationship with those who have imagined and realized.</p> <p> Take a look at our shop : <a href="http://www.eqivoqe.com/" target="_blank">www.eqivoqe.com  </a></p> <p> All artworks are numbered and signed by hand of the author and we put a point of honor to carry the creations of artists by means of various <strong>high quality artisanal processes</strong>.</p> <p> We work with our printer partner "MOS", expert in artisanal printing. <a href="http://www.imprimeriemos.com/" target="_blank">www.imprimeriemos.com</a></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>For the second edition of the letterpress calendar, we don't do profit.</strong></p> <p> <strong>We count only the cost for preparing, producing, packing and delivery the calendar.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> We hope that you will be proud to support this project and acquire the new calendar!</p> <p>  </p> <p> By example, for 35€ contribution, you will receive your signed and numbered calendar accompanied by a personal message on a personalized postcard (delivery from late November-early December).</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>THE 2017 LETTERPRESS CALENDAR : </strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> A karmic journey...</p> <p> <strong>It is a creative and meditative journey to infuse in your soul freshness, inspiration and enjoyment throughout the year</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Between contemplation, surrealism, poetry and reflection, the calendar invites you to dream.</p> <p> <em><strong>What better way to stay positive and find energy every day?</strong></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> You can expose your cards as you like, frame them and make a patchwork on your favorite wall, or place them in your office to brighten up your working environment :)</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><em><strong>///////// </strong></em></u><i><u>The author</u></i></p> <p>  </p> <p> Jean-Marc Embit is as passionate about the contemporary design than poetry or naive drawing.</p> <p> He imagined and created this calendar being inspired by the work of designer Alexander Girard.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Each card is full of illustrations, prose, floral patterns and original icons</strong>, which will be magnified by color and relief printing (letterpress printing craft).</p> <p> <img alt="Icones-en-1475845313" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/356243/Icones-en-1475845313.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><em><strong>///////// </strong></em></u><em><u><strong>A practical and stylish calendar</strong></u></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The letterpress calendar includes 16 cards sealed with a headband and placed in a black cardboard box with velvet background.</strong></p> <p> <strong>The black box protects your cards and ensures their integrity during shipping.</strong></p> <p> You can also use the box to handle your cards on your desk, by example.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Each month of the calendar has a specific color</strong>, the result of a unique composition created by the printer, based in Metz in France.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The calendar is trilingual</strong> (English, French and German) including a caption for the holidays.</p> <p> The lyrics are mostly in English with some French and German.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><em><strong>///////// </strong></em></u><em><u><strong>Cards details :</strong></u></em></p> <p>  </p> <p> (Here you can take a better look on each 3 cards originaly designed in black &amp;

Allocation of funds

<p> <strong>We need 3,672 € for this project.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> - <strong>Almost 70% of the total cost are reserved for the production</strong> (files and plates preparation, and specific processes for letterpress printing).</p> <p> For information, the cost for preparing a board (for 1 color) is equivalent to about 170 € for the printer.</p> <p> The printer needs a full week of work to edit calendars.</p> <p>  </p> <p> - <strong>Associated works</strong>: print headbands / certificates / custom greeting cards (offset press) account for about <strong>3% of the overall cost</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> - Finally, we must add the creation of boxes, <strong>packaging, and finalization</strong> that also takes time and represent about <strong>9% of the total cost</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> - <strong>Shipping</strong> charges are estimated at about <strong>12% of the overall cost</strong>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> - The remaining <strong>8% correspond to the fees</strong>.    </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Cost-1475843800" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/356236/Cost-1475843800.jpg"></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>The funds are used to support only the costs of preparation, production, packaging and delivery.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Working time spent on the creation is not taken into account.</strong></p> <p> The creator don't earn money for this project.</p> <p>  </p> <p> His primary objective is to share it.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><em><strong>///////// </strong></em></u><u><strong>What if we exceed the target ?</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>If we go beyond 3,500 €</strong>, we will edit more calendars for you :)</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>If we go beyond 5,000 €</strong>, we could produce a deluxe edition with 2 colors per board.</p> <p> We already thought about that and did simulation.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Beyond 6,000 €</strong>, we couldn't imagine that but we are open to all your suggestions to make your calendar more unique.</p> <p>  </p>
