As an alternative to our premium limited-edition calendar—which comes to you in the mail like it’s the Stone Age—we now offer a calendar you can download and print at home! Or at work. Definitely print it at work.
These 30-page desk calendars can sit in an easel on your desk; can hang from a nail or pin; or will even fit an old Wondermark calendar stand (with some hole-punching required after you print).
I’ve even included instructions for making your own easel out of cardboard, if you like!
Content-wise, these are reissues of Wondermark calendars from years past. I’ve updated the dates to 2019, and reformatted the pages to show 4 weeks per page (but you still cycle the pages every 2 weeks, so you can always see at least 2 weeks ahead).
I’m hoping this might be of interest to folks who don't have the budget for our annual printed calendar, but who’d still like to see the content that was released in prior years—which has previously been exclusive to only those calendars, now all long out of print.
Choose from any of these three designs! The links below take you to updates from the original release of each calendar, which can show you more examples of each one’s content as well as info about how each was designed and made.
The Gaxian Almanac (originally released in 2013) – Whether you’re a visitor to planet Gax or an expatriate longing for home, this collection of useful bits of Gaxian history, etiquette, and culture is an invaluable companion. Learn why Gaxians habitually devour their own mothers, and marvel at the first Gaxian to bicycle down a volcano! Enjoy this beautifully watercolored tribute to one of the galaxy’s smelliest species.
The Concert of Conscience (originally released in 2015) – Many years ago, in a hall long since demolished, there was a concert which affected all in attendance in profound and maddening ways. The pages of this calendar are the only known account of what occurred, and even its veracity is suspect. From A to Z, each player and each instrument are profiled in these pages, and the uncanny effect of their playing is described. Be one of the few to know what really happened on that cold night long ago—a night dark, without any stars.
Absurd Sports League All-Stars (originally released in 2017) – How much do you know about Pox-Whip, the Many-Named Game, also known variously as Flea-Ball or Loud Checkers? It takes an entire year to explain all its rules, regulations, and customs, many of which contradict each other—but luckily, some of Pox-Whip’s most popular athletes are here to demonstrate the finer points of professional play. Even if you don't yet know a sally from a stove, this All-Star collection will show you exactly why Pox-Whip is on its way to becoming the world’s most popular sport.
This is a downloadable product. You will get an email after checkout with a link to download a PDF file containing the calendar pages and an instruction sheet.
