Waukesha, Wis. January 11, 2021 – The LANG Companies, Inc. is excited to announce our 40th anniversary! While we’ll be celebrating the anniversary in 2022, the iconic LANG 2022 Wall Calendars being introduced this month feature a commemorative foil 40th anniversary emblem signifying the milestone.
“Forty years is quite an accomplishment. We are thankful to our loyal LANG consumers who continue to support us and appreciate our high-quality standards, great artist partnerships and innovative products. We are excited to celebrate this milestone for our company. Look for more anniversary details as the year unfolds!” said Julie Smith, LANG’s Chief Marketing Officer.
As part of our already extensive LANG 2022 Wall Calendar collection, we are introducing three new titles into the line. The first is Gallery Florals™ by beloved and best-selling LANG artist Susan Winget, which features a fresh and exciting new look from the already widely popular artist. The new Patina Vie™ calendar comes from one of our latest artist partnerships and answers renewed consumer interest in a fresh take on vintage elegance.
LANG is excited to announce a partnership with Lily & Val through the release of the third and final new Wall Calendar title, Be Gentle with Yourself™. The artwork focuses and encourages self-care, a topic that is so very relevant in the world today.
