Let's have a little giveaway today! We have 5 letterpress calendars to send out into the world! Printed by Pistachio Press and designed by yours truly, each 4" x 11" calendar is held together with a silver binder clip. Once the month is over, you can trim it to make a 4" x 6" print to frame or give to a friend. That's 13 prints, including the cover print. Yay! The giveaway ends on February 1st- here's more fine print:

My daughter is a graphic design major (junior year, she isn't producing great stuff like this yet!) She just texted me about her first class on letterpress. I'm jealous (I'm a graphic designer-wannabe.) I would love to win those calendars as I love letterpress products.
