2011 Calendar Round-Up, Part 1

Other than the arrival of fall, the end of September means only one thing – and that’s calendar round-ups!  A few of my favorite stationery shops have already listed their calendars, with more to come over the next few weeks.  So I thought I’d get a head start with the first installment of the year!

First up, one of my perennial favorites, letterpress and silk screened desk calendars from Ilee.  I’m loving the January design, inspired by the Year of the Rabbit on the Chinese zodiac!

I absolutely love the design of the 2011 calendar from SeeSaw!  This year, the ladies at SeeSaw were inspired by vintage textiles, and the calendar features gold foil and gray letterpress in beautiful geometric shapes:

We caught a sneak peek of this calendar at the National Stationery Show – and the 2011 calendar from Sycamore Street Press is now available!  The illustrations were inspired by the wildlife around Eva and Kirk’s home in Utah:

Another perennial favorite that we also saw at the Stationery Show, the gorgeous calendars from Linda & Harriett!  Each month features a perforated post card at the bottom that you can detach and send to a friend.  There’s also a fantastic perpetual calendar that’s great for keeping track of birthdays or anniversaries.

Every year I like to get at least one fabric calendar to go along with my annual collection of paper calendars (I may or may not have at least 5 calendars scattered throughout my home), and I’m loving these fabric calendars from Lisa Rupp.  The calendars are available in two designs – one with floral illustrations and another with hot air balloons:

Flora and Fauna Press also created two calendars for 2011 – a large 3-color letterpress poster-style calendar, and a smaller desk calendar inspired by marine life:

Also along the marine life theme – the 2011 mini calendar from Blackbird Letterpress features a Louisiana blue crab calendar pad with tear-off months:

From Dizzy Wizzy Design out in Australia, a fun desk calendar with space to jot down notes on the reverse side:

Or turn calendars into a fun family craft project with these printable calendars from A Little Hut:

For even more variety and options, one canoe two has created FOUR gorgeous poster-style letterpress calendars for 2011:

That’s it for now, but I’ll be back with many more calendars over the next couple of weeks!

  1. I LOVE elements that pop of the page! Like those from Blackbird Letterpress and A Little Hut – gives the calendar a little something special!

  2. No matter how much technology I use, stationery and wonderful paper calendars can never be replaced! I love the zodiac calendar by ilee – what a wonderful find!

  3. Great first round up, Nole! I love that fabric hot air balloon one.

    And, of course, thanks for including L&H!



  4. Great picks, Nole! I always love your calendar round-ups…although I’m a little taken aback that 2010 is already wrapping up!
