Original Post: Create and Sell Your Own 2018 Wall Calendars!

With the upcoming year just around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time to release a new product that has been asked for by many of our members. All ArtWanted artists can now create and sell their own 2018 wall calendars that feature your own artwork/photos!

Calendar Details

The calendars are 11” wide by 8.5” tall when closed. They are spiral bound together and are printed on a heavy 110# cardstock paper. Each month will feature a different image that you have created. Your images will look amazing!

The process to create a calendar couldn’t be easier. Simply upload your 12 high-resolution images plus your front cover image and you’re done! We take care of all the rest for you, including creating the master calendar template, printing the calendars and shipping them to the buyer. You will collect a sales commission from every calendar you sell.

The retail price of the calendar is $20 (USD), but you can even change the retail price of your own calendar if you want. The wholesale cost to print each calendar is $16, so any amount above that is your profit. You can even buy your own calendars at the low wholesale price. Funds will be deposited into your ArtWanted bank account after the product ships, and you can use those funds for any ArtWanted purchase or request a payment via PayPal/check.

The calendar will be promoted on your portfolio page with a new “2018 Calendar” icon. This portfolio page will talk about the calendar, display all of the monthly images and have a button for visitors to purchase your calendar.

Calendar Image Requirements:

  • For the highest quality product, we suggest using at least 300 dpi images (no less than 100 dpi accepted). Pixel dimensions of 3450 pixels wide x 2700 pixels tall is ideal.
  • Wide landscape orientation images are preferred over vertical images.
  • Images will be printed with a full-bleed, so some minor cropping on the edges will occur. Keep all critical details at least 1/2" in from the edge of the product dimensions.
  • Creating Your Calendar

    After you have decided which images you want to have on the calendar and prepared the images, head over to our Calendar Builder page to upload your images and set your retail price.

    Calendar Summary

    We hope you enjoy this new ArtWanted feature take advantage of it by creating your own custom calendar for 2018. The calendars are great for home or office and make a great gift. Post a reply with your feedback on this new product and let's see what you create!
