2014 Southern Hospitality Wall Calendar

Each year, we partner with McQuiddy Printing and one of our favorite paper companies to produce a promotional calendar. These 3-way promotions are an affordable and fun way to create a very nice piece that would otherwise be too costly to produce. The printer contributes their printing services, the paper company contributes paper, and we contribute our illustration and design services. Then each company has a nice stack promotional calendars to showcase our products and skills.

This year, French Paper stepped up to showcase their awesome Smart White uncoated paper. It’s a great paper for printing our vintage-looking poster art, which was an especially good fit for this year’s theme! The 2014 calendar concept was an easy one for us to choose—there has been such a buzz about Nashville for the last 2 years, as well as all things Southern—so we decided to create a calendar that celebrates the South and offers some cultural assistance for all our our friends and clients who are not from around these parts!

The 2014 Southern Hospitality calendar is full of Southern sayings, expressions, wit and charm. It also features 13 ready-to-frame prints that we created for our Southern Delights poster collection.

The calendar cover is an adaptation of our Great Southern Brood Cicada Invasion print created by former staff artist Andy Gregg. (We are into recycling!) The interior posters were created by our team of illustrators as part of our Southern Delights and Art & Soul of America poster series. 

Now that the calendars are finished, we are giving them to our design clients. (Just call us or swing by the design studio to pick yours up if we have worked together on a design project in the last 12 months!)

And if you are not a design client, don’t worry, you can still get your hands on a calendar for only $19.99 by visiting our site. (What a deal—if you bought 13 prints from our web site, you would spend over $240!) We only created a small batch of calendars to give away, and an even smaller batch to sell. So get yours while you can!
