Corwin Design & Graphics Corporation is the parent company of MyCorwinOnline.com and MyCorwinCalendar.com. Founded in 1993, Corwin is a full service design and print company that specializes in producing newsletters and calendars for the health care industry. Since all facilities (and their corporate owners) are not the same, Corwin offers a variety of newsletter and calendar programs that allow our clients to choose the program that fits their budget while maintaining an excellent marketing tool designed to build a sense of community, improve resident and staff communication and share their expert knowledge to the community.
Our goal at Corwin is to provide a professionally designed and printed newsletter and calendar quickly, easily and inexpensively. Each month, we take your information sent online, by fax or by email and create your newsletter and/or calendar for you. You decide how many pages you want your finished newsletter to be. You decide how much information you want to provide and how you will send to send it to Corwin. You decide how your newsletter will look by allowing Corwin to design a variety of masthead templates for you to choose from when you first start service with Corwin. You also decide the best method for you to send your monthly calendar online or by fax/email.
Definitely. Some of our clients prefer to fax either their calendar or newsletter while using our online service for the other. If you request this method, simply give us a call so we can properly note your intentions on your job each month. If you choose this "mixed" method of sending your order, we must receive your entire order within 24 hours of each other if you wish them to collate or ship together.
There are a few options for getting started. You can fill out our "Request a quote" on this website, give us a call, or send us an email. Once we receive your detailed information, we will provide you with a quote. If you have an existing newsletter and would like us to quote on it, please fax it to our toll free fax number (1-800-889-9040), scan it to email to: , or simply drop it in the mail to our address located at the bottom of this page.
To have your Newsletter designed, printed and shipped to your facility by the first of the month, the due dates range each month between the 8th and the 15th (depending on your location, holidays or other "non-shipping" days and shipping schedules). Each month you will receive a "CorwinStyle" newsletter which includes the deadline for the following month.
If you do not require delivery by the 1st, you do not need to follow our due dates. Corwin requires 7 14 working days to have your job completed and in your hands.
It depends on how soon you need your newsletter and/or calendar. If you require overnight or rush design service, a Rush Fee may be necessary to meet your deadline. You will be notified BEFORE we begin your job of any rush fees associated with your job. In some cases, we can provide quick service at no additional charge depending on our production schedule. We only pass additional charges to you if it requires any or part of the Corwin team to work overtime to meet your requirements.
If you are creating your newsletter or calendar online, a subscription is required for each and can be paid month to month or one year in advance (which is less expensive!). Corwin offers special pricing for clients who subscribe to both our newsletter and our calendar programs offered online.
There is a one-time fee of $55.00 for Corwin to design a template for your facility. Once you give Corwin approval of this fee, we will provide you with up to four templates to choose from. Minor edits and color adjustments can be made on your final choice, however; complete redesigns or excessive edits are billable. You will be provided with a quote for approval before any redesigns and/or edits are made.
Yes, simply give us a call so we can provide you with an updated price and make any necessary notes to accompany your job each month. Unless you tell us to change the type of newsletter you receive, we will consider your choice a "standing order" and keep all the specifications the same from month to month.
If you are sending your information through our online service, you will not receive an additional proof from Corwin - you proof everything yourself before sending your order online. Once your order is picked up at Corwin, we place your articles on your template and print your job. Any job emailed or faxed to Corwin is considered "full service" and a proof will be faxed to you for approval BEFORE we go to press.
Yes. Once your material arrives at Corwin, our proofreading department checks your articles for any obvious spelling or grammatical errors and will fix any we find. Please keep in mind that, although we do our very best to catch every spelling or grammatical error, we are human and an error can get skipped so it is equally important that you proofread your articles (or have another person at your facility check them) to eliminate any possible typographical errors. If Corwin finds any questionable errors or requires input from you, we will place your job on hold and contact you for clarification.
The "week at a glance" calendar format is 6 or 7 pages (all printed on 11 x 17, folded in half to 8.5 x 11 and collated). This leaves the front page (the first page you see) completely blank which looks funny. Corwin will place your chosen "masthead" (facility name, address, phone number, etc.) on this blank page along with ANY information that will not change from month to month - at no additional charge. If you decide to want to add articles to the front and back page, you must subscribe to our "newsletter/calendar combo" which allows you to submit your own information.
IMPORTANT: If you wish to have your staff listing, general transportation schedule, photo of your facility, or any information that will not change from month to month, Corwin can add this information to your permanent template AT NO CHARGE However, it must be submitted at the time we are creating your template. Then, each month, your standard order will include everything we added to your main template. If you need to change anything, let us know and we'll provide you with a quote to revise your template.
For our clients who have signed up for monthly newsletter service but do not have any submissions for that month, go ahead and place your newsletter order online with no articles and Corwin will provide the articles necessary to complete your order. This service is available online and for our "full service" clients.
Online Newsletters: When creating your newsletter online, Corwin has provided information for you regarding "word count" or "character count" and your information must fit in that area. You can also copy/paste your articles created in another word processing program (i.e.: Word or as an email). You only need to type in the Headline and then copy/paste the body of the article. You can also run spellcheck online for your newsletter articles.
Full Service Newsletters (articles sent by fax/email): If you are sending your articles by email or fax, simply number each article in priority so we can place them in the order you wish. If all of your articles do not fit, we will notify you during the proofing process. You can either add pages to your newsletter or you can save article(s) for your next issue.
Our editorial staff writes professional articles that are specifically designed for your industry. These informative articles include general interest content seasonal events, trivia, and so much more. All the content that helps improve resident retention, increases referrals and builds a sense of community.
Absolutely! Branding is extremely important and photos can say a thousand words. Simply send us your logo in .jpg format and well include it in every newsletter and/or calendar. For photos, you can email them to or even drop them in the mail properly marked with your facility name and any tagline to accompany the photo.
No. Some of our corporate clients enter into contracts for production of a nation or region-wide newsletter, but our standard subscription (for online clients only) does not include a long-term commitment. We do ask that you provide a 30 day written notice of cancellation.
At Corwin, you dictate how your newsletter looks. Typically our newsletters and calendars are printed on light color 60# offset that reflects the holiday or season that coincides with that particular monthly order. We provide both black ink newsletters and/or full color newsletters. We also offer premium stock upgrades and masthead shells for clients who want a multi-color newsletter at a black and white price. Request a quote to get pricing for these optional upgrades.
Corwin offers a variety of different newsletter and calendar programs and prices vary according to the number of pages in your issue, how you send your information, how much you want to customize, and how you want your newsletter printed (in black ink only, full color or a mix of both). Regardless of how you send it or what color ink it prints, you will receive beautiful layouts, professionally written articles, exceptional printing quality and excellent customer service and support.
