" Creating a stand-out direct mail piece is one thing. Satisfying our rigorous brand standards is something else entirely. WCD delivered an innovative product that connected quite powerfully with our audiences. We were very impressed with their ability to adhere to our brand guidelines while delivering a superb direct mail piece."


" WCD maintains the same level of service that they come to the table with. Dependable and reliable—WCD is virtually an extension of our own business."


" We only print what we need, when we need it, making it easy to manage marketing materials and customizable collateral. Our investment in the WebConnect print-on-demand solution has proven to be worth every penny. It’s been of tremendous value to ATB."


" Our past vendor didn’t like the idea of quarterly meetings. When we made the transition to WCD it opened a door to new ideas and a different way of doing business. Now we meet quarterly to discuss reports and have open lines of communications with all WCD employees. Everyone is quick to respond to questions and able to deliver results."


" Thanks for the extra effort you took to complete this project! That’s the reason I would bring your team with me wherever I go… you are not just super talented, but you're also amazing partners."

How to Create a Custom Calendar in 5 Easy Steps

The new year is just around the corner! If you’re looking for a way to share memories and milestones from the past year, all packaged neatly as a gift for your customers or loved ones, then a custom wall calendar is calling your name. Why do wall calendars make the perfect gift? They’re low cost, easy to create, and most of all, they’re useful for almost anyone throughout the entire year. Printed in vivid colour with quality finishings, your calendar can showcase art, photography or creative designs hand picked by you. Ready to start creating your calendar? Let’s break the process down into five simple steps. Jump to the step you need: Choose a calendar themePick a calendar size Design your calendarSelect from our calendar binding optionsChoose your paper stock Rather get one-on-one help? Give us a call > Choose a Calendar Theme Whether you’re designing a calendar for your brand or for personal use, the first step is to pick a theme. What vibe do you want your calendar to give off? Is it elegant and upscale, or country western? Clean and classic, or pretty in pink? Having a theme in mind will help you determine the colours, fonts and stylistic elements to use during the design process. Not sure what theme to use? If you’re personalizing your calendar with images or art, that can be a good place to start. Have a look at the list of common content themes people use when creating personalized calendars below to help get your ideas flowing. If you’re adding wedding photos to your calendar, you might want to pick a more elegant theme. On the other hand, a calendar full of photos of your trip to Greece might have a Grecian theme. Common content themes for personalized calendars: Family photos Brand photos Year in review Travel and trips abroad New babyWeddingsPetsRecipesNature Pick a Calendar Size Before you can start designing your calendar, you’ll need to pick a size. Standard wall calendar sizes are as follows: 12 x 12” Calendars 12 x 12 calendars are typically wire bound with a hole punch at the top for hanging—meaning when they’re on display, they are 24” in length. This makes for a stunning and eye-catching display that’s often preferred for people showcasing high-end images in their calendar. 8.5 x 11” Calendars 8.5 x 11 calendars are the perfect option for displaying your images and special dates—just in a slightly more compact space. These calendars are typically printed in horizontal landscape format, but it is possible to print them in vertical portrait format if your calendar features images of that orientation. Design Your Calendar Now that you've picked a theme and a size, it's time to design your calendar. There are many ways you can do this depending on your skill level, so we've broken down some options below. I have no design experience Not a clue where to get started when it comes to designing your calendar? Luckily, there are many easy-to-use online tools at your disposal. For complete beginners, platforms like Mixbook make it easier than ever. Simply select from their library of templates, drag and drop your photos, and customize the text to your liking. The best part? WCD is Mixbook's Canadian print partner, so you're guaranteed efficient printing and delivery across Canada. Get started with your Mixbook Calendar > I have design experience If you're an experienced designer, Adobe InDesign is the best tool to lay out your calendar's creative file. You can start from scratch or use online tools like iStock or Getty Images to search for calendar templates, saving you from laying out dates and important holidays. When you're finished, remember to export your calendar as a print-ready PDF with bleed and crop marks. Calendar Binding Options Depending on the type of calendar you're printing, there may be two binding options available to you. As seen below, saddle stitching is when staples are placed along the spine of the calendar. On the other hand, wire binding (available in silver or black) makes for a higher end look. In this case, the calendar is hole punched along the spine and wire is fed through, allowing the calendar to lay completely flat when it's open to each page. For larger 12x12" calendars, only wire binding is available. Choose Your Paper Stock The finish and weight of the paper you choose can have an unexpected but dramatic impact on the finished product. For a more quality finish and feel, you might pick a heavier weighted stock with more substance. If your calendar features fine art or photography, semi-gloss paper is typically best for photo quality prints. Often, people will select a heavier cover weight for the cover pages and a lighter text weight for the calendar's inside pages. Whatever the case, ask your printer for a recommendation.
