FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
(and hopefully, some answers!)

 

Will you be doing a Vintage DC Comics or MARVEL Calendar again?

We’re grateful that so many of our customers appreciated our DC Comics and MARVEL titles as much as we did. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and so it is with these perennial favorites. Though these titles have been the ride of a lifetime for us here at Asgard Press, there’s only so much quality vintage artwork and we feel the time has come. We know our loyal fans will miss our yearly offerings of Spiderman, Captain Marvel, Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash. We will, too. But just as one door closes, another opens, and we hope you will be just as excited about our upcoming new titles as we are.

What happened to your college football calendars?

Like our MARVEL and DC Comics titles, we have immensely enjoyed bringing your favorite college teams to our calendars for you. However, we feel the time has come to say goodbye to the old gridiron as we have showcased all the best of the vintage artwork in our collection. It’s been a wonderful trip in the time machine to the glory days of each school and we’re thankful so many customers made the journey with us. But we’ve developed many exciting brand-new titles and we’re sure you will enjoy them as much as we do.

What are your calendar titles like? What’s in them?

We’re so glad you asked! Our calendars, prints and notecards all feature vintage, retro, pop culture and history-themed images sourced from a number of collections and meticulously restored as display-quality artwork. All our calendars feature perforated monthly images for easy removal and display in standard sized frames so you can enjoy your favorites year-round. Even our notecards fit standard frames! Our carefully curated and restored images include historical photographs and portraits, vintage posters, maps, artwork, lithographs and illustrations, and even original retro content that you won’t find anywhere else. Many of our calendars feature expanded commentary and captioning so you can enjoy the images in their full context. We are so excited to bring these titles to you each year and hope you are, too!

Where did your journal books go?

After several years of carrying our plated and foil stamped journal books, our inventory has depleted and with the ending of our college football series, we’ve decided it’s also time to say goodbye to journal books. At Asgard Press, we still highly recommend the old-school art of writing, and hope that you will consider our notecard sets for this purpose.

So, what else do you publish besides calendars?

In addition to over 40 vintage, retro, pop culture and history-themed calendars, we also carry 11”x14” poster prints, notecard sets and reproduction vintage baseball trading cards. Our prints and notecards feature Works Progress Administration-era National Park posters and old-time travel posters, and our baseball cards showcase the players and artwork of an earlier era, perforated for easy removal from the backing sheet for play or display. We’ve also packaged up some of our own collections for our Vintage Time Capsules. These boxed sets feature a grab-bag of real vintage source material including old programs, magazines, and comic books, along with a selection of our own published products.

Nice…but eco-friendly?

You betcha. We use 100% recycled paper for our posters (50% post-consumer waste, acid-free, sourced from an FSC-certified* paper manufacturer) and FSC-certified paper for our calendars, all using soy-based inks. FSC stands for Forest Stewardship Council. They provide certification to companies and products that meet rigorous standards in sustainable forest management and manufacturing processes.

How about your carbon footprint?

Due to costs, the vast majority of all calendars sold in the U.S. are manufactured overseas. Within this highly competitive, incredibly resource-intensive industry, we’ve made a total commitment to be an agent of change—while maintaining a ‘no compromises’ approach to innovative design and production quality. We‘ve worked exclusively with the same printer for over fifteen years—one of the most socially and environmentally progressive in Asia—and while we don’t claim to be better than anyone else, we do feel we are making a positive difference.

What is your privacy policy?

All customer information that you provide to us is never shared with any third party under any circumstances. We do not rent, sell, or trade away your personal information as a matter of principle. No exceptions and no excuses. We try to follow the golden rule in all our business practices and decisions. You can read our full privacy policy here.

How much is shipping?

All orders ship for a flat rate of $5.99. If you spend $35 or more, your order enjoys free shipping.

If I get free shipping for spending over $35, can I ship to multiple addresses and still get it for free?

No, sorry, but you must have your order shipped to a single address in order to qualify for free shipping.

Do you ship overseas or to Canada?

At this time, shipping our products overseas is cost-prohibitive, both for us and for our customers. We do ship to Canada through our Amazon store. Search Amazon Canada for your favorite Asgard Press titles to check availability.

Do you ever run sales? How can I find out about them?

We periodically offer great deals on our calendars, prints and notecards. You can find out all about these deals and when they’re available by subscribing to our email list and following us on social media. The sign-up for our email list and the links to our social media accounts are on our homepage.

How safe is my payment information?

Extremely. We use technology that is the best in the business. Our shopping cart is secured by SSL/TSL technology and the Stripe payment gateway. We could go on about the technical details of state-of-the-art encryption technology and how your payment information is inaccessible even to our own customer support team, but the most important point is that you won’t find a more secure online shopping experience in the world today.

Fine, but what if I’m still not comfortable with online shopping in general? Or if I have other questions not answered here?

If you prefer, you can also order directly by phone (302) 295-8992, Monday thru Friday, from 9am to 5pm, EST. You can also email us at team@asgardpress.com and someone will respond to you promptly. We’re always happy to answer any questions you may have!
