Dress Up Your Office: Wall Calendars

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending Jingletweet, a physical meetup of virtual friends hosted by our good friend and BlogTour travel partner Stacey Bewkes of Quintessence and new friend Ridgely Brode of Ridgely's Radar. As if connecting with friends, yummy eats and drinks and a beautiful space wasn't enough of a draw, there were prizes. What fun! And in the scrum, I managed to come away with this gorgeous engraved desk calendar and brass easel from The Printery

Though I won it by chance, it turns out it was the perfect gift for me. I have a paper obsession and also a love for great calendars. So that got me thinking. What would be my dream calendars for 2012? I shared my favorite desk calendars over on Momtastic yesterday and today wanted to show you my favorite wall versions.

I have long been a fan of Elum Designs thanks to their modern designs and great quality paper and letterpress. I love how this year's Four Seasons Wall Calendar (left) is halfway to psychadelic with it's turquoise and acid yellow. Each page covers three months with seasonally-inspired designs.

With our recent profile of Katharine Watson, it's no secret we love her block printing and aesthetics. For the holidays, Katharine has produced a limited edition (only 75!) of these sunny yellow letterpress calendars (right).

The folks over at Pistachio Press have really gone to town on their wall calendar offering. And being the acolyte that I am, I was hard pressed to choose a favorite. The assortment: the Cross Stitch Calendar (top left, designed in collaboration with Aesthetic Outburst), the Perpetual Mid-Century Modern Calendar (bottom left, inspired by the period's furniture, lamps and wallpaper) and the Peacock Tearaway Calendar (right, printed on 100% tree-free cotton paper). While you're scoping them out, make sure you check out the blind embossed eyelet lace letterpress card set - so cute!

I had the pleasure of meeting the artist behind the organic and elegant designs of Ink+Wit, Tara Hogan, at the National Stationery Show. Her aesthetic translates perfectly in her 2012 ready to hang letterpress calendar (top), aptly named Into the Calm.

The spirograph-inspired motifs on this letterpress printed wall calendar from Paper Boat Studios (bottom) certainly takes me back. You can see the designs from each month on their blog.

As if that all wasn't enough, don't forget that we took a look at some other terrific wall calendar specimens from Smock, Smudge Ink and Paper Source from my vist to the National Stationery Show.

What calendar will be gracing your walls come the new year? Do tell!
