I am so excited to introduce you to my new range of calendars. I have previously done very few, mostly, India and Manipal themed; used them myself and gifted them around. I have only received positive feedback so far and that’s why this is the first time I am curating a travel calendar with all photos clicked by me.
The story behind.
We know 2020 has been an unexpected year and travel has pretty much been out of the picture. But here, you, I and everyone around are surviving this one hell of a pandemic and staying home, almost patiently. I wonder if we can really leave home even after the laws say so, do you too? Travel and experiences will only resume but slowly. Until then, we can only reminisce the beautiful moments and plan some excited journeys, right, can we not?
Both India and world themes are available in the form of Wall Calendars, Postcard calendars and Bookmark calendars.
To make this unforeseen journey enjoyable, I have stories in captures and words from all these many years of exploring, to share with you. You can post them out to your loved one, paste it on a bigger collage or even hang it on your wall! All the thirteen pictures in each theme shot by me, Heena Shah are curated for a hopefully better 2021! These calendars are meant to bring back fond memories, help learning about a new place and radiate positive vibes. These can help you plan trips as pictures are placed with a month in such a way that that is the best time to visit the place. So let’s share them around with those stuck with us, in our own homes or places of work.
This one includes a mix of offbeat and popular sights and moments of 13 unique States and Union Territories from Nagaland to Andamans and Nicobar Islands. I hope these suggests help you plan a better domestic travel and get to know our country on another level.
This version includes 13 unique countries from Norway to New Zealand, each popular or off beat; perfect for when international travels open. And even if we can physically go out, we can enjoy these virtual tours that papers have to offer.
They always said, it was never just about the destination but also the journey, right? Well, here we are in this unique journey and the destination is going to be brighter than ever, I promise!
The wall calendar comes in a single size of 8.27in x 11in (21cm x 28cm), perfect to fit even with space constraints and printed on slightly glossy paper. It includes 13 unique images, one for cover and the rest per month. It is spiral bounds and made with slightly thick paper. When opened, it can be hung with the included string, the top includes the image and the bottom the month with boxes to make notes. The only holidays mentioned are Republic day and Independence day, giving you ample of space to fill it up, in the hope that 2021 will eventually become an eventful, rebound year!
The postcard calendar comes in a single size of 4in x 6in (10.16cm x 15.24cm), perfect for those who don’t have a wall to hang on. They are printed on 280gsm textured paper making it easy to write on the plain back. It includes 13 postcards, each with one unique image. They can be pinned on a notice board, stuck on a wall, placed in a book or even posted to a human by adding stamps . The idea is to add more utility to these postcards. This includes a month just at glance although with different icons to define the month and add fun to these calendars. I hope these icons bring back fond childhood memories.
The bookmark calendar comes in a single size of 2in x 6in (5.8cm x 15.24cm), perfect for those who don’t have a wall to hang on and love reading books or writing in one. They are printed on 280gsm textured paper making it easy to write on the plain back. It includes 13 bookmarks, each with one unique image. They can be pinned on a notice board or even placed in a book. The idea is to add more utility to these bookmarks. This includes a month just at glance although with different icons to define the month and add fun to these calendars. I hope these icons bring back fond childhood memories.
Reduce Reuse Recycle
At the end of 2021, you can always save the calendars up for six years later when 2027 is exactly the same as 2021.
Just make sure to use another coloured ink to fill in the spaces in the world calendar in 2027. Feel free to recycle the spiral and cut out all the images to use as posters. This is possible due to the front and back printing. Since they are big in size, they could even work as a book cover or a wrapping paper.
The postcards could be written with a memory from 2021, preserved or even sent out in mail in 2022 as a throwback. The memorable day could be marked and the postcard from that month could be framed.
The bookmarks again can be scribbled with a memory from that month and used forever in the books we read or gifted.
If doesn’t find a use in your place, may be you can donate it to a local school or NGO so we can share these experiences. In the end, since its paper, please do decompose it.
All hail, 2021!
