I'm so excited to make a few announcements about some projects Whisky and Tartan™ is currently working on.
The first you may have seen on social media. It is a steel bottle opener keychain that's perfect for those import brews you're bringing to the Highland Games and summer festivals. It's a full color keychain with epoxy dome made right here in the USA! Visit "The Distillery" page to order yours now!
The second, and much larger project, is a calendar of U.S. Pipe Band musicians.
I've been working on this for a while, so I'm very excited to finally announce that I have 4 bands on board so far (out of 12) and will be photographing shortly. We'll be going to print mid-August for a pre-Labor Day delivery.
It is semi-inspired by the FDNY and police charity calendars, with 85%+ of proceeds going directly to the pipe bands to fund their uniforms, transportation, lessons and so many other costs that go into maintaining a successful pipe and drum band!
These talented men and women normally rely on their friends and family and pull together fundraisers on their own. I think we can show them how much we appreciate when they play the music we love and cherish at parades, funerals, weddings and more.
Pre-sale will begin once the initial proofs arrive.
I encourage you to give me a shout out on Twitter or Facebook, or my "Contact Page" to show your interest! *If you are a photographer located in North America, let me know if you have interest in doing a shoot.
I welcome any and all sponsorship and will announce those, as well as the committed bands, very shortly!
I look forward to making this an annual calendar with many different styles and images every year. From bespoke kilts to historic locales, it will be a visual treat for all to enjoy!
