create new account pageOn your first visit to the new site you will need to set up a user name and password. This should be unique to this site—for security reasons do not use any existing Calvin passwords.

You do not need to fill in the address information at this time, but If you do, use your Calvin address (not a personal address).

Calvin mindwire letterhead product pageFor letterhead, choose "Calvin Letterhead" to order your department letterhead, "Calvin Generic Letterhead" for generic Calvin letterhead with the 3201 Burton St. address, or "Calvin Letterhead 2nd Sheet" for blank Calvin second sheets. Like the letterhead, there are also department and generic choices for #10 envelopes.

Editing Product

When ready, click "Next Step" at the top or bottom to go to the options page.

On the options page you will choose a quantity to order. The quantities for business cards start at 250; letterhead and envelopes, 500. There is also a field to add any special instructions and your account number is also displayed here. When ready, again click "Next Step."

Calvin mindwire checkout screenThe checkout screen shows your shipping information and total price of your order.

This final order screen lists all of your information one last time. If all is correct, click "Place Order" to submit your order to the printer.
