Le 31 juillet 2013, le Festival de Mode et Design Montréal, en collaboration avec le Casino de Montréal, à dévoilé la liste des participants de cette année, laissant notre imaginaire se bercer entre les couleurs flamboyantes, les tissus de toutes sortes, la scène médiatique, les mannequins et bien sûr une sacrée poignée d’audace. Une série d’expositions et défilés se dérouleront comme elles le font avec franc succès chaque année, et ce dans les quartiers les plus branchés et élégants du Centre Ville de Montréal. C’est pour cette raison que le bal s’est ouvert ni plus ni moins avec la collection de Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, un créateur renommé dans l’industrie de la mode Française, ce matin mercredi 31 juillet 2013, à 9 :00 a.m. dans l’aile Nord de la Place Ville Marie. Il n’est pas sans dire que la presse nationale et internationale était là pour immortaliser et diffuser le meilleur du festival.

Wordans.ca est une entreprise web de première ligne, qui se spécialise dans l’impression de designs standard ou personnalisés sur chandails, survêtements et accessoires. Le pragmatisme dans cette entreprise est qu’il n’y a pas plus d’un clic séparant une personne voulant se procurer son t-shirt unique en son genre et un entrepreneur désirant se lancer en affaire et faire de son idée de design un projet concret. Wordans.ca s’assure depuis de nombreuses années à donner un service de qualité et aider sa communauté web à révolutionner le «culte du t-shirt» en un produit mémorable et abordable. C’est d’ailleurs sur cette note que Éric Gauthier- PDG de Wordans ajoute que «Wordans.ca partage ses valeurs avec celles du Festival de Mode et Design et supporte les nouvelles recrues de la mode et du design, c’est pourquoi nous seront présents tout au long de l’évènement».

Les spectacles de mode sont en premier lieu une scène permettant à des designers nationaux et internationaux de dévoiler leur savoir faire, à travers des pièces de collection, dont chaque élément a été réfléchit point pour point. De plus, cette occasion exclusive pour les créateurs talentueux leur permettra d’attirer la participation de la crème des artistes maquilleurs, maîtres coiffeurs et des plus incroyables mannequins de ce côté de l’équateur.

Bien évidemment, seront présents, les designers ou leur représentant afin d’effectuer des commandes spéciales sur place. Il n’est pas sans dire que l’ambiance sera au rendez-vous avec les nombreux acheteurs et représentants du marché de la mode et collectionneurs à l’œil exercé, sans oublier invités spéciaux, personnalités et commanditaires.

Cet événement est une fois de plus une promesse de succès pour Montréal, créant plusieurs opportunités d’emplois et professions pour les stylistes, mannequins et autres personnes impliquées dans le processus et raffinement de la mode.

Les touristes à Montréal seront plus que ravis d’être ici en cette partie de l’été 2013, nous en somme certains !

Rencontrez nous Samedi, le 3 Août à la scène principale de l’université McGill près du centre commercial Eaton. Nous aurons pleins de surprise qui vous y attendront!

Custom Gifts for your Professor or Teacher

Funny Professor Custom Gifts

Searching for gifts for a teacher or professor can be a challenging process. However, by putting some thought into it and creating or shopping around for custom gifts that will interest your professor, you should have little trouble coming up with great gift ideas for them. If you’re familiar with your professor on a personal level, then you’re one step ahead of the game, since you will be able to cater your gifts based on their interests and hobbies.

However, if you’re not close to the professor, then you can still shop for gifts based simply on the subject matter that he or she has chosen to teach. For example, if you’re shopping for a Geometry professor, then you’ll want to create or select a design that relates to mathematics, geometry or numbers.

Next, it is important to remember that your professor is a regular person. In other words, don’t pressure yourself to get the world’s greatest or most expensive gift in order to be appreciated. By taking some pressure off, you’ll be able to get down to business much quicker and enjoy a stress-free shopping experience. Also, do not underestimate the power of a gag gift that can be used in the classroom. Similarly, something as simple as a funny custom t-shirt that you designed or selected can go a long way as well.

If you want a quick gift solution, it may be easier to shop based on a specific subject your professor is interested in. If there interested in environmental science for example, you may want to choose t-shirts that are made with 100% organic material. If your professor teaches astronomy, you could create a Custom Poster using the Wordans web App for an eye-catching poster or wall decal.

Nearly all professors drink coffee regularly, so creating and ordering a custom coffee mug is always a good option. To personalize the mug, you can have a funny message or relevant symbol (school crest, basketball team logo …) engraved on the coffee mug. For more sleek and complex gifts that your professor may enjoy, you may want to visit Wordans’s general marketplace to see what quirky and exciting gifts you can create or come across. Of course, to top everything off, you can purchase a funny or meaningful sticker collection to go along with the gift. Hope your prof enjoys.

Custom Merchandise and Apparel for Bands, Artists and Touring Acts

Odd Future Merch Table

We know that merch booths are very important for touring artists – any band or artist, big or small, has a merch table at their show and hopefully an online boutique. If you think about it, there’s been a merch table at the majority of the shows you’ve been to. This makes it one of the most important parts of an entertainers career. It doesn’t only help artists create a new revenue stream but it also enables them to turn their fans into walking, talking – and in many cases screaming – adverts or “brand ambassadors” for their brand, hence helping promote them anywhere and everywhere they go.

 Here are a few tips:

What merch should you make?

The typical apparel and merch pieces such as custom t-shirts,hoodies, posters, stickers and more are always a no brainer and good way to start. We’ll talk about how to develop and create those items later on in this post. Although I suggest typical merch items, I strongly urge you to get extremely creative with this apparel, use humor, be provocative, be unique, do what it takes to have your fans like your merchandise/clothing line as much as they like your sound!

Consider these fun things to create and sell: custom stickers, posters, iPhone cases or printed art that are representative of your brand. You can even reach out to an artist from your circle or one that inspires you to help you design your clothing line and merch items. We all have a friend that loves to draw or scribble a piece of art on a notepad corner…why not help that friend leverage your bands influence and start a design career themselves?

Also follow the trends and technology that influence your market, create custom iPhone cases and iPad cases to include to your merchandise. You wouldn’t want to leave your geek fans aside?

Limited edition t-shirts, hoodies and collections are a great way to please the die-hard fans that want that particular piece that no one else can get.

Many of these options are scalable and cost efficient which will in turn allow you to sell them to your fans at affordable prices. This will help your band and merch brand gain clout rapidly, so make sure your creations have an identifiable and unique style that defines them. The unique features of a design are what create a strong demand and emotional attachment, do it properly and it could possibly open up new markets for your music as well.

Getting it Done !

You have some really cool options in today’s tech world for creating and selling your merch; you can design your merch using a service website like wordans.ca – Such a platform allows instant merchandise creation thanks to a user-friendly platform, this online interface requires a minimal knowledge of technology and design.  If you have a logo, artwork, or even plain text you can easily include it on the items or apparel you choose (hoodies, tank tops, phone cases, stickers, even coffee mugs). Within minutes you will be able to create your online boutique/shop and start managing your sales through the Wordans tools and user-friendly interface.

Regardless if you have an online shop already set up on your blog/website, I suggest you make an online shop with Wordans as well, this will help you increase your band/brand’s online visibility. When you direct your fans to buy merch, they can be directed to your personalized Wordans boutique e.g.: myband.wordans.com, this allows you to focus on making music and touring, while Wordans professional team takes care of the details like printing, customer service and shipping for you. This eliminates a lot of challenges that artists and their road managers would traditionally face such as inventory management. We go beyond that by allowing you to set your own prices on items, giving you the freedom to choose your markup price and feature in our general e-store.

Golden Merch Rules

Before you jump into creating your official merchandise, make sure you define the following elements, this leverage the potential of your merch project!

• Define your budget

• Ask your fans what they want, consult them on designs and get them involved

• Look for the best value

• Offer a range of prices and products

• Create good quality artwork and get informed about formats, materials  etc..
