Introducing MCD’s 2022 Holiday piece! We have once again stepped away from the traditional holiday card format, choosing to showcase our capabilities with a 13 page desktop calendar. Each page features different finishes, creating an eye-catching and tactile experience throughout the year. Read below for a description of each month (all the puns + cheesiness intended!) and the finishes used.

The cover page offers our holiday greeting and welcomes in the new year with elegantly hung ornaments, foil stamped in three colors and a multi-level emboss that brings a delightful depth to this festive scene.

The color purple has an uplifting effect, encouraging growth. Each unique petal creatively climbs, seeking and reaching, bursting to life.

Oh the joy of sipping the August sun while hearing soft scalloped waves gently lapping at summer green shores.

Keeping time with the growing dark and feeling slumber creeping, the trees put forth a fiery blaze, entangled within the month’s magic.
