If you haven't yet purchased a 2012 calendar for yourself, make this year's version less of an eyesore and more of a conversation piece with the Vertical Calendar ($30). Measuring a foot across and three feet tall, each month features clean typography, includes all the major U.S. holidays, and provides plenty of room for adding your own events. In addition, you can order a special hang-up package for four bones that'll let you secure each month's sheet to the wall with nothing but four tacks and four magnets, while keeping the original sheet hole-free.
Whether you're making a shirt, canvas print, graphic furniture, painting, or anything else that requires ink, consider using Inkodye ($12-$175) to get the job done. Thanks to a unique photographic print process that uses the sun to develop the dye, Inkodye can be used in a variety of ways to create lasting images on any absorbant natural fiber. [Scouted by Adam]
