LOS ANGELES, CA --(Ammoland.com)- At an early age Justin Janes, the mastermind behind Calibur Prints, developed a strong interest and appreciation for the history of the U.S. military and their firearms.

His father, a highly decorated military veteran, told Janes of his wartime experiences and frequently took him to the gun range.

Armed with vast gun knowledge, Janes decided to combine his passion with his profession, graphic design, to create Calibur Prints. In June 2013, he took his idea to Kickstarter.

Janes first studies every piece of a particular firearm, learning the name, location and function of each one. He then turns them into a graphic illustration that shows a deep appreciation for their look and purpose. To bring it all together, the Calibur Print is an exploded diagram of the whole firearm with labels to aid people in their understanding of the high level of thought and detail. The fascinating look and noticeable quality makes Calibur Prints a welcomed addition to any living room, man cave or hunting lodge.

“Caliber means two things, the measurement of the quality of a characteristic and the measurement of the bore of a gun barrel,” says Janes. “Calibur Prints was created to embody those two aspects in my expression of historical firearms.”

Currently, Calibur Prints depicts four historical firearms, including the AK-47, AR-15, M1911 and M1 Garand. The .357 Magnum Revolver, Mossberg 500 and Uzi will be added to the collection if crowdfunding goals are met.

Calibur Prints are available in 19” x 27” prints and may be purchased starting at $19. They are manufactured in eco-friendly facilities and are printed on 80lb. recycled gloss book with aqueous coating. Calibur Prints also incorporates the use of eco-friendly inks and soy-based solvents, which emit very low traces of volatile organic compounds. Start to finish, the prints are made in the U.S.A.

To learn more about Calibur Prints or to place an order, visit http://kck.st/12Jb3LH on or before August 23, 2013 when the project’s crowdfunding campaign ends. Janes will then move toward full production of the prints. You may also find Calibur Prints on Facebook and Twitter @CaliburPrints in order to stay up to date with the campaign.

    1. I don’t see the AR print as being a truly exploded diagram as the internals of the lower receiver are all hidden away inside.
