Iowan-Made Handmade 2012 Calendars
Pin It January 1st, The Juice rans a "Handmade in Iowa" Calendar story featuring two of our favorite artists, Basemint Design (DSM) + Red Velvet Press (CF) - both of whom stock their designs here.
Basemint's 2012 Year of the Dragon Calendar is hand-screened + the designs are all inspired by one-half of the Basemint duo's recent Japan trip. There's a dragon, karaoke, a bicycle, a sumo, a video game controller and of course, a giant city-wrecking robot. Each month can be recycled next year as a little note or print included in that month's borthday gift. Cool, huh? Basemint also creates amazing gig posters, art prints and kids/baby tees - all handscreened. Look for more of their work in our webshop. Calendar $26 online or in-store.
Pin It Red Velvet Press's retro-office-y Letterpress 2012 Calendars make us so happy! They're colorful and completely handmade using quality French paper. The Multi-Color Calendar pictured comes with it's own little clipboard which also serves as its hanger. She also makes a smaller 2012 Pendant Letterpress Calendar, as well as Letterpress Cards + Coasters. Calendars $20 and $15, respectively. Available online or in-store.
