For the last few years, I’ve forgone buying Massimo Vignelli’s awesomely massive (48 x 36″) Stendig calendar, simply because I just didn’t have the wall space for one in my last couple of apartments. I switched to Vignelli’s small-scale perpetual calendar, Max 365, instead. Max 365 is GREAT for checking on the date at a glance (provided you’re good about flipping it daily, of course), but I miss my mega-Stendig! Happily, my new home office has two walls big enough to display one, so I’m gonna go ahead and place my order NOW before they sell out everywhere.
In 2011, my Stendig hung in the kitchen of my Washington Heights apartment (gosh, that was a great place…). Back in 2008, it lived in my office in Newburgh.
And of course, when each month ends, you have a nice big sheet of graphic wrapping paper! You can’t go wrong, really.
Stendig Calendars are currently in stock at Crate & Barrel, Stendig Calendar, Amazon, Schoolhouse Electric, and in the MoMA Store. If anyone knows of a good source for buying a Stendig Calendar outside of the US, please share in the comments! The stores I used to recommend have all either shut down or stopped stocking the calendar.
Places to buy a Stendig Calendar outside the US:
• Australia: Lark
• Canada: Arrow House
• Canada: Studio Pazo
• UK: Aram
• UK: twentytwentyone
• Germany: Politiken Plus
• Germany: rikiki
• New Zealand: Let Liv
• Netherlands: Kleuroptafel
(Thanks to Lucy, Ama, Heather, Becky and Annemie!)
p.s. THRIFTY TIP: After Christmas, Crate & Barrel puts their seasonal items on clearance. Usually by then the Stendig Calendar is sold out online, but the stores often have a bunch left in stock. In past years, I’ve taken my chances going that route and have wound up getting a calendar for 40% off. Yes, you risk missing out by waiting, but I thought it was worth mentioning…
I’ve loved this calendar from the first time I saw it in one of your blog posts, but this is the first year I’ve actually got organised and bought it. I’m in the UK and bought from the Aram website aram.co.uk – it’s a lot more expensive than in the US, but worth it I hope!
Lucy, thanks for the tip, I’ll add a link to the post! That is indeed a LOT more expensive than in the US, but I have to imagine that shipping the calendars from here to there is quite pricey for a distributor. I hope you love it!
Arrow House sells them in Canada! And they’re on sale 🙂 http://www.arrowhouse.ca/products/stendig-calendar
great sale price … Arrow House is sold out now though ;(
I got mine last year at studio pazo … going to try there again (so great seeing all the international links)
Studio Pazo (http://www.studiopazo.com/objects10.page) in Toronto, Ontario carries them and ships them anywhere in Canada for a pretty reasonable price if you take into account the hit you take on the exchange, shipping and duty if you order it from the States. He will also set one aside for you even if you are coming through the city at some point.
The Canadian Crate and Barrel stores carry them but you can’t get by them online and get them shipped. You can only call you local store and if they have them they will set one aside for you for a short period of time.
I love this calender. I never thought to use it as wrapping paper until I saw you do it. Now I have friends come and ask for old sheets to wrap gifts with and my school teacher friends love them and get all sorts of use out of the old sheets.
Thank you, Ama 🙂
You can also get them at twentytwentyone in the UK 🙂
Added! Thanks, Becky.
A dutch and a danish link (in that order):
Even more expensive than the UK option, but that one ships to UK only, so fellow continentals, so far the only two options I found in the region. I swoon every year I see these. Might convince my roommate to get one now I’m not a broke student anymore!
Thanks for the reminder!
Found another one in Germany: http://www.shop-rikiki.de/Schere-Stein-Papier/Kalender/The-Stendig-Calendar-2016.html
Thanks for these links, Annemie! I added them all to the post. 🙂
In Australia you can get them from larkstore.com.au, if you are prepared to pay an eye-watering $125. I refuse to pay that for a calendar, no matter how stylish and awesome.
Good gravy, that’s expensive! It really does come down to the cost of shipping it overseas, I’m sure. The box it ships in is massive, and it’s much heavier than it looks.
Let Liv stocks them in New Zealand
Thank you, Emma!
Speaking of thrifty tips, for some reason the red Dansk Kobenstyle coffee mugs are $5.99 on Amazon right now. Prime eligible! I don’t care for the red, but if it was the navy I’d be all over it. Just thought I’d pass that along!
I picked mine up from Studio Pazo in Toronto this week and I’m in LOVE! Leo at Studio Pazo is amazing and he even ordered me in some additional items for Christmas presents while I was in there too. Can’t wait to get our Stendig up on the wall 🙂
It looks like an amazing store!! Someday I’ll make it to Toronto…so many places to check out. 🙂
mucho thanks for this post, as i’ve forgotten to place an order for one of these for the last few years. funny thing, i moved to nashville last year, and ordered it from the stendig link you’ve got posted. lo and behold, they are printed right here in nashville. thanks again!
How cool, Henrik! Enjoy your home-grown Stendig. 🙂
The last few years I’ve also ordered from Studio Pazo in Toronto – sometimes I’ve bought 3 and a bunch of us share the cost of shipping. Excellent service and Fed-Ex-ed within 24hrs of me ordering every year. There is a place out of Edmonton (I think), redribbon.ca that did have them for sale online but I think only maybe ships in Alberta (maybe someone from out west could comment?) They also seem to be sold out now. I’ve researched options in Canada pretty extensively I think Studio Pazo seems to be the best bet as they don’t seem to sell out until late Dec. Thanks for this post!
It looks like Let Liv in New Zealand has sold out of Stendigs but I tracked one down at http://www.greenwithenvy.co.nz/2016-stendig-calendar-xidp852736.html They are $125NZD which is roughly $85USD. Oh they joys of living in a tiny country at the bottom of the world!
Green with Envy store in Matakana, New Zealand stocks the Stendig calendars. I agree the pages make great gift wrap!
Politiken Plus is in Denmark, not Germany (see list above).
Politiken Plus are exclusive distributor of the Stendig Calendar in the Nordic countries.
You will find this very popular calendar in our webshop – http://politiken.dk/plus/ – every year and we ship all over the world.
Thanks for all the great comments we just received the 2017 calendars http://www.studiopazo.ca/products/stendig-calendar
