An overview of the Christmas project

Celebrate Christmas and get the creative juices flowing in your school by letting children design their very own Christmas cards which they can have professionally printed for parents, friends and family to treasure forever. The project gives children an opportunity to be creative and celebrates their efforts and achievement. The school also earns much needed funds from the orders made by parents.

Prices based on packs ordered from each individual artwork.

Our multipack discounts are sure to stimulate more orders and therefore raise more funds for your school. Prices for standard packs start at £6.00 for parents and are then reduced to as little as £2.00 depending on the quantity purchased.
The suggested fundraising price can be adjusted by the school to increase the amount raised.

Click a question to reveal and hide.

Can I use any materials to produce our artworks?

Yes! Unlike some other suppliers, we scan all artworks individually which ensures not only a higher quality print, but also means there are no limitations in artwork materials. The only medium we advise against is glitter as it doesn't always reproduce very well.

Do the projects cost the school any money to complete?

NO! In fact the project will give you the opportunity to raise substantial funds for your school. We provide you with all the forms and leaflets needed to complete the project and ideas and technique sheets to get you started.

Are the projects open to anyone else other than primary schools?

Yes! Playgroups, creches, nurseries, Sunday schools/church groups, scouts & guides, community centres, summer clubs, secondary schools (recommended for lower year groups) and other groups have all participated in the projects. The projects are open to all and can be adapted to suit the group.

Can siblings take part?

Yes, we can provide extra order forms for siblings to take part too - just let us know at time of booking. Alternatively, parents can photocopy the order form. There is an option on the order form to have the cards printed without the school name.

What size do the artworks need to be?

The original artworks should be created on A4 paper. You don't have to fill the whole sheet but the effect is better if you do.

Do you provide any resources?

Yes - inspiration for the project can be found within our Ideas & Techniques booklets, all of which are provided FREE for anyone through our online resources page. The booklets, together with artist information, National Curriculum references, and QCA schemes can be found online here

Do you accept late orders?

Yes we do. However, due to the additional costs to produce late orders, each artwork submitted will incur a £2.00 fee. Please click this link for more info.
