The images currently shown in the shop do not necessarily correspond to the version printed in autumn. This is a working version. We reserve the right to exchange motifs for editorial reasons. The final selection of images will be made on September 15th.

EarlBird Discount

We offer our fan community and other interested parties the possibility to order the LifeSciences Calendar 2021 months prior to publication at an early bird rate (and pay immediately afterwards). Delivery will then be made from production completion (usually from the beginning of November) according to the receipt of the order.

The list price of the high-quality art calendar is 69.95 EUR (incl. VAT in Germany). We will start various early bird actions, but the discount will decrease as the time of real availability approaches.

Coupon campaigns

The relatively high sales price of the LifeSciences Calendar takes into account the special effort involved in creating the image motifs and the extraordinary printing quality (ANIVA special colours, UV clear varnish finishing, extra protective film cover sheet, etc.) At the same time, we see ourselves induced to various discount campaigns to boost sales.

If you have been lucky enough to get one of the coveted COUPON, please enter its ACTION CODE in the field provided in the last step of the order process. The purchase price of the products in the shopping cart will then be reduced accordingly.
