Asgard calendar review and giveaway

Last year I discovered a great green company (Asgard Press) selling such a beautiful and unique product (Asgard calendars) that I had to reintroduce them to all of you.

I had never seen calendars like this before!

All Asgard calendars are produced with:
  • 100% recycled heavy weight stock paper
  • Soy-based inks

But what makes Asgard calendars stand out from others is that each page is perforated and can be removed easily to fit any standard 11 x 14 frame.

You may be asking yourself why you would want to frame calendar pictures. Well, if you are big college football fans like my family is then you would love to fill your room with these beautiful reproductions of actual souvenir game day program covers from more than 60 of the top football colleges across the country.

The quality of the pictures makes framing them a definite option (and one my son can’t wait to do with the OSU pictures from his calendar. Thanks Asgard for shipping me a beautiful calendar just in time for my son's birthday)

This is part of Asgard’s Green Mission: Sick of seeing all the waste from the millions of calendars produced, bought, and discarded each year, Asgard set a goal to create a series of calendars that people would think twice before throwing away at the end of the season.

I would say that they have succeeded!

If football is not "your thing" you may like Asgard’s

All of which are equally as “cool!"

Each of these calendars are 16 months (starting in Sept) which is also a nice feature.

Asgard’s oversized, eco-friendly calendars not only contain beautiful vintage pictures they are also filled with fun facts about the picture such as the score of the game and the history behind the comic book/magazine cover.

If you or someone you know is looking for a new calendar for 2010 (maybe a Christmas gift for that sports fan) I would highly recommend purchasing an Asgard calendar.

At $18.95, they are comparably priced to other calendars but with the added benefit of being "The Greenest Calendars on the Planet"

***Christmas shipping deadlines: Dec. 14: for standard ground shipments. Dec. 17: for 2nd day air. Dec. 21: for next day air.

Thanks to the generous folks at Asgard Press now you have the chance to win one of these beautiful, green, vintage calendars!

I love the concept of being able to frame the pix later. I often use calendar art as classroom decor. If I win, I'd like the Wisconsin Badgers calendar!

Learned that inks can be soy-based. Would buy the Florida calendar -- Gators are awesome!

They print their calendars on archival-quality 100% recycled paper with soy-based inks. I'd love the Vintage Marvel Comics Calendar for my husband. He still has all of his childhood Marvel comic books.

I know what Asgard is and wondered why they named their company after it. Now I know. :)
