Most people don’t think about calendars for the upcoming year until fall or thereabouts, but in these parts it’s never too early! Especially when the calendar in question is the potent new 2018 Desktop Calendar from Sky of Blue Cards. Inspired by classic cocktails, each month features a carefully rendered and highly detailed image of a vintage cocktail etching — letterpressed for posterity — along with the recipe and a fun drink fact.
Little details like hand-drawn fonts, rounded edges and a wooden base, hand-made in-house, raise these glasses to the high standard that distinguishes this California house of design. I love the pop of color that comes now and then from a second ink color!I am not much of a drinker myself, but I find myself suddenly thirsty! Each is carefully packaged in a sleek kraft box with a clear lid, while a printed label affixed to the back of the box showcases images of the entire calendar year, $20.
I am also loving these two new card releases, show above and below, and available here, that just feel so of the moment. Each is available singly or in boxes of 8, and like the calendar, is ‘pressed by hand on 100 percent cotton paper, a tree-free, natural, sustainable resource that minimally impacts the environment.
Meanwhile, envelopes are made from recycled or partially recycled materials, and Sky of Blue Cards utilizes responsible printing methods allowing a minimal amount of wasted paper, if any. Find a store near you here or shop it all here!
