If the world is going to end, this is how it’s going down. The Positive Apocalypse desk calendar outlines the pleasant letterpressed disasters coming your way in 2012.

Now in its 11th year, our annual calendar project is a staff favorite. This year the theme is the Positive Apocalypse, since we figure there must be an upside to our (supposed) impending doom.

The stand was a custom duplexed paper made from light green Mohawk Loop Antique Vellum Thai Gold and teal Cordenons So…Silk Glamour Green 130lb C paper stocks. Our easel stand design has a clever fold-out angled leg that reveals a peek of the inner metallic paper color. The green stock is letterpress printed with one tonal ink after duplexing before we custom diecut and hand assemble
