If you love something, believe in it. If you believe in something, create it.
We believe in print and paper. A paper calendar allows you the flexibility to create a system that works for you. Flip it; mark it; carry it around. Star an appointment; circle a birthday; write a poem. Practice goals or form a game plan—you should be able to staple, stick, and highlight whenever, and however, you want.
We believe in compelling images and stunning photography. We search the world for spectacular images to fill our calendars. Our talented illustrators bring humor and a gift for insight. Our professional photographers bring fresh viewpoints and winning photography for you to enjoy.
We believe in making hard work look effortless. We like to pay attention to the tiny details so that your experience is seamlessly satisfying. We spend ridiculous amounts of time behind the scenes so that you appreciate the time you spend with our work. Refined, practical, and beautiful…we want our calendars to be a good fit for you.
Speaking of time…time represents many things in our culture. (Time is money. Time heals. Time will tell.) Calendars are all about the organization of time. For us, they offer a way to track events, big and small, and help us find more time to enjoy life. We hope our calendars accomplish the same for you.
Gladstone Media started small. At first, we didn't even know we were a calendar company. In 1996, we published one calendar, Above & Beyond. The next few years were a struggle, but we were one home-based business that received loyal customers, support from loved ones, and a bit of luck.
We've come far. Our publishing company, located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, specializes in distinctive, high-quality calendars. Our office is a converted garage and our team includes photographers, designers, editors, and Sparky the cat. We continue to produce Above & Beyond, along with dozens of other titles, and enjoy creating and developing new calendars for our customers.
Thank you for visiting and thank you for being a customer.
