The School Christmas Card Project is an easy and fantastic way to raise funds for the school/PTA/charity with no cost to the school!

The school sells the Christmas cards and other items to parents who pay BEFORE the school pays the invoice, adding some profit onto the cost price, thereby raising valuable funds for the school.

Discounts are available for early submission of artwork so you can raise EVEN MORE! Full details are in the pack we send out to you.

In an average school of 250 pupils you can easily raise over £500 - or even more!!

* Prices include VAT. If your school is able to reclaim VAT from HMRC then you can add EVEN MORE to the total you raise! We will issue a full VAT receipt in order for you to be able to do this.

**These are our standard suggested prices to parents. If you would like to change these to raise more money or reduce the price to parents, please get in touch and we can adjust this for your school's order forms.

 

Getting started

is easy as 1-2-3!

The School Christmas Card Project is a fantastic, easy and very popular way for schools to raise money for the PTA or other charity.

Children create their own artwork which is printed on professionally produced cards and other products, which the school sells at a profit to the parents. It is a rewarding and fun project for the children and the whole school to be involved in - and an average school of 250 pupils can easily raise £500 or more!

The children will love getting directly involved with school fundraising and parents will love seeing their children's artwork on professionally printed cards!

We offer packs of Christmas cards, gift labels, thank you postcards and wrapping paper so there's plenty to choose from!

Create fantastic, professionally printed Christmas Cards with children's artwork and raise loads of money for the school.

And with absolutely NO UPFRONT COST!

And overall, I have to say I have been so impressed with the service your company has provided, it's unusual today to get such a great level of customer service from start to finish. I have personally really appreciated all the little tweaks here and there that you were happy to do (pleasing everyone is never easy!), and also the extremely efficient communication. The end products were being admired today by staff, children and parents. Can I book again for next year?! Once again, thank you. "

Prices were a major reason for me choosing your company - I was attracted by the lower-priced products, thinking that our less well-off parents or those with a few children at the school would be able to buy something. We were very pleased with our £200+ raised. Thank you for accommodating our errors and requests with friendliness & promptness. Thanks to you and the team, see you later in the year!"

  • Why participate in the School Christmas Card Project?

    The School Christmas Card Project is a fantastic, easy and very popular way for schools to raise money for the PTA or other charity. Having the children's own artwork printed on professionally produced cards and other products, which the school sells at a profit to the parents, is a rewarding and fun project for the children and the whole school to be involved in - and an average school of 250 pupils can easily raise £500 or more!
    The children will love getting directly involved with school fundraising  and parents will love seeing their children's artwork on professionally printed cards!

  • How do we get started?

    The first thing to do is register on our website www.schoolchristmascardproject.org.uk/register.html as soon as possible so we have your details and we can work with you on this project. By registering we can be in contact with you, answer any questions you may have, and we'll know to expect your artwork. This helps us to plan ahead and ensure your order is processed as quickly as possible.

  • How much will this cost?

    Nothing! The project is completely free to the school - you just keep the profit! Parents place their orders and pay the school before we ask for any payment at all.

  • What about the price of the cards?

    Our packs of 12x Christmas Cards are £4 for the school to buy – we suggest selling at £5 to parents so you can make a clear £1 profit on each pack sold!

    Other items are: Gift Labels – cost, £1.50, suggested selling price £2, Thank You Postcards – cost £3, suggested selling price £3.50, Wrapping Paper – cost £3, suggested selling price £3.50.

    These are our standard suggested prices to parents. If you would like to change these to raise more money or reduce the price to parents, please get in touch and we can adjust this for your school's order forms.

  • When do we pay?

    Normally we will invoice the school once the final order has been placed, and payment is due within 7 days (Cheque/BACS/Transfer). Alternatively you can pay by debit or credit card when placing the final order.

  • Do we have to pay VAT on top?

    All our prices include VAT so there really is nothing else to pay. What's more, if your school is able to reclaim VAT that you spend, you can raise even more money! We issue a full VAT invoice to enable you to do this.

  • Is there a minimum order?

    No! But in order to maximise sales and therefore funds raised for the school you may wish to roll the project out to the entire school or entire year groups and encourage participation for all pupils.

  • Are there any discounts for getting our artwork in early?

    Yes! You can raise even more for your school by getting your artwork to us early - we offer a 10% discount on artwork received by Friday 22nd September 2017 and a 5% discount if you get it ready by Friday 29th September 2017. This also means you will get your order forms back quicker giving you chance to sell more cards!

  • When do we need to finish the artwork?

    Our initial artwork deadline is Friday 13th October 2017. We can accept artwork up until Friday 27th October 2017 but anything received after 13th October will incur an extra 10% on the total order value.

  • When do we get the final delivery?

    We will deliver your final items in the first week of December. If you would like it sooner than this, please start early! The earlier you can submit your artwork to us, the sooner you will receive your final items!

     

  • What if we need extras?

    We will send a reprint order form out with the final delivery. Any parents requiring additional products can reorder at this point. Please note we can only process orders for reprints, not new artwork at this stage.

  • What if I haven’t registered yet?

    Register now! Click here and register your school or organisation. Registering is important so we know to expect your artwork and so that we can offer support along the way. We have limited print slots so act sooner rather than later!

  • What sort of materials can we use?

    You can use felt tip pens, crayons, paints, collages, you can stick elements onto the paper but please ensure nothing can come loose in transit (eg elements stuck to the paper), or any contamination of one piece of artwork on another when stacking (eg colours rubbing off). If necessary, put in plastic wallets.

    Suggested idea: Hand prints make great reindeer, Santas or Christmas trees! The best results are the most colourful - feel free to stick coloured card on top of the artwork template, but please ensure it goes all the way to the edge!.

  • How do we submit artwork?

    Artwork must be submitted on our pre-printed templates. This ensures that the entire design is scanned and printed correctly on the final items. We wouldn’t want any fine details missed off! The templates we provide are A4 sheets of quality 120gsm silk paper which is suitable for use with most art materials e.g. pens, crayon, ink, paints, glue etc.

    Once the artwork is all complete and collected together we will collect it all in the box we provide.

  • What if we make a mistake or run out of templates?

    You can either photocopy a template at your school (ensuring it is on A4 paper) or simply get in touch and we can send more templates out. We provide a few spare anyway in case a couple go wrong!

  • How can we make the most out of the project?

    Plan ahead! The earlier you start you project, the smoother it will run and the sooner you will get your final delivery. You can increase sales to parents by getting the information to them before they buy their Christmas cards elsewhere!

    Another great way of maximising participation and therefore sales of Christmas cards is to make this a classroom project rather than a homework or individual assignment. Get the teachers excited and get them to plan a fun festive lesson as part of their lesson plans.

    Involve the parents! Use our advertising posters around the school, announce it in the newsletter or on the website to get them interested early on rather than just when the order forms go out.

  • What if we need help!?!

    Easy – just get in touch! Organising a School Christmas Card Project is very easy - we have ensured the process is as simple as possible - And if at any time you have any questions or need any help, you can just call us or email us and we'll be delighted to help you out. All the contact details are at the top of this website.

  • Our school wants to run a similar project but not at Christmas.
    Can you help?

    Yes! We can run a similar project for any occasion – just get in touch to organise this. We can also print anything your school needs – from office stationery to exterior signage to children’s art projects on a variety of materials – just give us a call and speak to us about what you need!

Everyone’s a winner!

 

Our cards are professionally printed on extra thick and rigid card, so you know you're getting the very best quality around.

You can always speak to us at any point throughout the process if you have any queries or problems. You will receive samples of all our products in your Artwork Pack so you can see we’re not just talk – our stuff is really great! So we can help you to maximise the fundraising for your school.
