Mark Your Calendar, Senioritis Style

What's the date of the third Thursday in March?

Well, we don't know either, but our new 2011 calendar has the answer ;)

We're very excited to unveil our Senioritis Remembers Famous Seniors 2011 Art Calendar. If you're looking for a fun, colorful, and inspirational way to keep track of 2011 we may have your answer.

You may be thinking, what's an art calendar? It's a calendar that incporporates artwork of course ;) Our art calendar goes a bit further than that though. While each design provides colorful inspiration for 28+ days, at the end of each month break out your scissors and our calendar is instantly transformed into an 8x10" ready to frame print. Decorate your office, hang them in your house, give the prints as gifts; whatever you choose is sure to be fun for all!

We started by sketching the layout and deciding which tributes to include in the calendar:

We ultimately decided on having the designs alternate between famous men and women as well as the following specs:

*Calendar measures 11x17"
*Multicolor designs printed on 80 pound cardstock paper
*Sprial bound across the top
*Hole punched for easy hanging
*Calendar can be cut down to make 13 8x10" ready to frame prints (12 months + cover)

When designing the calendar, in an attempt to keep things cost effective =), we sized our prints to fit in standard 8x10" frames which means no custom framing or matting is required (our Einstein print is shown in an 11x14" frame matted to 8x10")! We are also pleased to announce that we will be offering free worldwise shipping for our calendars ;)

Enough jibber jabber though, here's a few photos:

A slight variation on our tribute to Mr. Einstein graces the calendar's cover:
