ENTERPRISING ART CARD PROJECT

sell a selection of designs at your own price, a flexible fundraiser for pta, schools, church, clubs, charities, scouts

discover our large square cards . . . meaningful art title.   signature.   photo.

distinctively more personal, unlike the smaller C6 size commonly on offer
with added feature of card back design to enhance personal touch & product value

If your time scale doesn’t allow every pupil to design their own card like our other two Personalised Art Card Projects, why not raise funds with the sales of a few designs or consider producing class cards. You could sell them as pre-orders or stocked items at your own events to parents/pupils, local businesses, or your affiliated church.

This fundraising project is also ideal for other organisations - church groups, charities, clubs or scouts, as the structure and prices are flexible; cards are sold in bundles of 12’s per design, available with or without packaging, reduced rates are offered for unpacked cards if minimum 120 bundles are ordered. For your convenience, packaging materials are available to purchase should you wish to pack them your own way or to simply raise more funds by self-packing.

To sell Christmas cards as stock items, place your order by the Fri, Sept 28th to guarantee delivery in 1st week Nov.
To sell as pre-order sales, place your order with us by Fri, Nov 9th for delivery in 1st week Dec.

If you do not wish to send us any art but would still like to raise funds, why not choose art created by children from our Art Library? We return 50% of the fee back to the school or artist for the usage.

If your deadline is crucial, it is always best to place your order at least 16 days in advance, or you can contact us for assessment.


What to consider when assessing your project schedule

Do you need your final order early to sell as stock items or later as pre-order sales?

For pre-order sales, you need to consider when to send in your art to allow enough time for your sales period; we suggest to allow at least 7-10 days for schools where meetings are daily; church groups or scouts may need a longer period.

Does your sales campaign rely on the display sample cards? if so, consider the additional turnaround days, or you may opt to have them sent without viewing the digital version, this will reduce turnaround by at least 2-3 days; you would have viewed and approved the basic card shell design at project start.

Consider that your art will be in transit for 2 working days via royal mail 1st class.

Consider the number of art you’re producing and how long the art would take the artists to finish.

Are there any half-term holidays when we return your digital proof / sample cards, as you may have nobody to promote your sales item to for quite a while until pupils return to school; if this is the case, do you still have enough selling time?
