About Us – Blue Mound Graphics


Calendars since 1952 – Blue Mound Graphics

Blue Mound Graphics, formerly Sacred Pictures Company, is a family-owned religious wall calendar business started by the late Harry G. John and his wife Erica in 1952. Today, we are dedicated to spreading positive inspiration through amazing calendars of all sorts.

Harry G. John was the grandson of Frederick Miller, founder of the Miller Brewing Company. In 1971, Harry and Erica sold the brewery stock to Philip Morris and started the De Rancé Foundation, which became the largest Catholic Charity in the world. Together, their good works spanned the globe, building sanctuaries for lepers in Sudan, digging wells in Africa, and building churches, convents, and rectories in India. They funded US inner city schools and donated large sums of money to thousands of Catholic projects nationally.

In the 1950s, Harry G. John formed Sacred Pictures Company. He believed strongly in the world’s greatest religious art treasures and reproduced these beautiful works of art on calendars distributed nationally to churches and businesses.

The journey continues with great calendars…

Some 70 years later, we are still publishing these beautiful, religious wall calendars. We have expanded our line from one classic style, the Traditional Catholic Art calendar, to five — all proudly made in the USA. Various styles are also published in Spanish, English/Spanish, Polish/English, Italian/English, Tagalog/English, and Haitian Creole/English. We are excited to continue our tradition of brilliant calendars and excellent customer service. That is a little bit about us. Give us a call and let us know a little about you!
