Calendars have been used for many years to advertise anything from cars to musical instruments. There are quite a few items that are featured on calendars, and there are just as many calendar designs as well.
One design of calendars that you will run across is a calendar top with a pad attached to it with a small sheet of paper that tells you what month and year it is. The calendar pad will be replaced over the years while you keep the top. Part of this type of design can be seen on this terrific calendar top advertising the Greisedieck Brothers Beer Company.
When the Griesedieck Brothers Beer Company produced this calendar, they used a print by Rolf Armstrong on it. The print was titled, “Dreamy Eyes” and was originally produced in the 1920’s. Rolf Armstrong’s work was featured on many things from magazine covers to even mugs, and they are very collectible in themselves.
The other great thing that this calendar has going for it is the size of it. It’s 15 inches wide by 19 ¾ inches long, so not only does it not take up a lot of room it also can fit into a standard size frame.
This is one of the many types of calendar designs and motifs that you can run across. What kinds of advertising calendars have you run across?
