"I have just completed your online form to take part in the Christmas Card project again next year. I started the enquiry for this 2 years ago and although we were a bit late in getting the delivery last year due to the bad weather, we were very pleased with your service. This year we made sure we had an earlier collection date and we were extremely pleased when the cards were delivered even before expected. We did have 3 mistakes which were quickly sorted.
On behalf of everyone at Macduff Primary School, I would like to thank you all very much for a very quick and efficient service. Best wishes to you all for the festive season. "

Jan Grainger, Penkridge Middle School - Apr 2011:

Once again many thanks."

Anthony Lewis, PTA, Manley Village School - Mar 2011:

"We received our printed tee-shirts yesterday and just wanted to say how delighted we are with them. As a Children's book illustrator I am used to seeing my work in print and am aware of the occasional limitations of the print process. I had feared for some of the 'lighter' pieces the children had done, but I must say the reproduction is superb; even delicate pencil crayon has reproduced well. The colours too are so clean and vivid. The children haven't seen their work yet, though I am sure they will be as pleased as I am. We have a School fashion show arranged for late March when they will be able to show off their designs. It's just to be hoped they can keep them clean until then!

Peter Hilbert, Parent - Dec 2010:

"I just wanted to write and express my thanks and gratitude for my son's christmas cards from Brampton Primary School, Bexleyheath, that you so promply reprinted. I had recently enquired about an error on them with his name, although it may seem quite minor, your assistance and help was greatly appreciated. I have received these today.

Thank you to Brampton staff too for your kind dealings with this.

Once again, thank you. Happy Christmas and New Year

Marion Cresswell, Chadsmoor Community Infants & Nursery School - Nov 2010:

"Just wanted to say thank you for our Christmas Cards.
The parents and children were very pleased and excited to receive them and we have had many nice comments so we thought we would pass that on to you all. Thank you for all your hard work!"

Angeline Gilardoni, Hanham Abbots Junior School - Nov 2010:

"I would also like to express my thanks and gratitude for your excellent customer service at all times. The project has been a delight and very easy to administer in school."

Jo Upton, Doxey Preschool - Nov 2010:

"Just to let you know we have had the Christmas cards delivered to us this morning and they are brilliant, all the staff are really pleased with how they have turned out and would like to do this project again next year if possible. Could we be put on the list again for next year please?"

Angela Bishop, Activity Co-ordinator, Caroline House:

"I wish to thank you for many year's excellent service. We have had some of the best times here making the cards, and the joy that it has brought to many of our patients when they received their printed cards, I wish I could bottle it any take some home with me! The quality of the cards has always been excellent and the service very efficient and helpful."

Anne Mehr, PTA, Dair House School:

"You have the best customer service of any company I have ever dealt with in the UK!!"

Mrs Debra Patch, Teacher, Shepherd Primary School:

"We always enjoy designing our calendars or Christmas cards and are always thrilled with the end results. The team at APFS are always friendly and very helpful and efficient. The goods are always collected and delivered on time and the children look forward to receiving their finished projects. We look forward to working with you again next year."

Mrs Maria Chapman, Head Teacher, St Peter's School:

"We have been so far impressed by the slickness of your company's admin and the children enjoyed creating the art."

Katherine Williams, PTA Secretary, Furzedown Primary School:

"I have just returned from picking my daughter up from school and the playground was filled with the buzz of excited children proudly showing their finished Christmas cards to their parents and to each other. This is the first time that we have taken part in the Christmas card project and it has been a great success from start to finish.

We found the whole process straightforward and very easy to administer. The art co-ordinator dedicated a week for the whole school to do the artwork and we sent the pictures home with the children and watched the orders literally flood in. The turn around time was especially pleasing, with the cards reaching us a week ahead of schedule.

We wanted to thank you for the beautifully produced cards and for your efficient service. We will definitely be repeating this project next year! "

Heather Ridge Infants School, Camberley:

"Our School ran the Christmas Card Project this year and we were all delighted with our cards. I do not think that the parents were expecting such high quality finished cards! We would like to run the project again next Christmas."

"I run a framing and art company, the standard and quality of your cards you produced was higher then many of the printers I have used to produce cards for some of my own customers. The girls were so proud to send their friends and family Xmas cards with their own artwork on the front, and with their own name and school printed on the back. And finally, they were exceptional value for money. Keep up the good work and many thanks."

Kenmont Primary School:

"We find the scheme very easy to administer and the children thoroughly enjoy it."

Ingleton Primary School, Darlington:

"We are always very pleased with the results of these projects. The pupils are so excited to receive their artwork presented in different ways. Thanks to all at APFS for a fantastic job."

Petham Primary School:

"We have taken part for four years now - this year was the best ever as we know what to do and there were no problems."

Linda Paviour, Rowlatts Hill Primary School:

"THANK YOU, for enabling us to participate in the art project. We received the completed work today and everyone was thrilled. We all enjoyed producing the artwork and giving art the quality time that it deserves. Those children that chose to have their work printed were so excited to see their designs in print. Your support throughout the project has been excellent and everyone was very impressed with the quality of the completed work. We raised 209 pounds that will be going towards an artist in residence to work with the children to transform our playground. I have already had parents and children asking when we will be doing the project again!"

Kirsty Thistleton, St Albans Catholic Primary:

We just wanted to say a big thank you for the wonderful opportunity that the Art Project gave to our school. We feel it was a unique way of celebrating the children's artistic abilities and everyone was thrilled with the results. The children were very excited and the parents proud of the high standard of work produced. We raised 500 pounds for art resources in the school (...) We were very impressed with the professional and efficient way the project was run by you. I personally was surprised and relieved at how a major project was virtually taken away from my hands and I thoroughly enjoyed running it."

Eric Curtis, Leas Park Junior School:

"Following our recent campaign to produce the T-shirt designs we felt we should thank you on behalf of the pupils in our school. The quality of the reproduced work was excellent and the organisation plan was extremely helpful. Last week we were in the throes of an OFSTED inspection, and the completed T-shirt order arrived mid-week, giving our design and artwork an extra dimension (most valuable to me as the school Art Co-ordinator). I would advise schools to go ahead with their Art Projects even in the face of OFSTEAD, it gives a wonderful 'team feeling' to the children and they like to talk positively about what they have done."

Pupils of Westholme School:

"I was so amazed. They looked like a professional artist had designed them!"

"It was worth all the hard work because our things are unique!"
