There are a total of four stages to this project.
The full process will take around 8 weeks to complete, but you will only need to get involved in the first stage, and then be available to hand out the sample cards, and at the end of the process; the orders. The remaining duration of the 8 weeks is where we will be working on your project, designing, printing, packing and organising your cards.
Each child taking part designs a piece of artwork based on one of our themes. Usually a week is plenty of time to complete this part.
You send the artwork to us, along with a simple coding form.
We print a free sample card for each design we receive (one per entrant).
We send the completed cards back to you with the original artwork and a dated order form for parents to purchase further cards should they wish.
There’s also the opportunity for the school or nursery to purchase cards for either their own use or to sell on at seasonal events.
Parents place their orders via our website by the date specified on their order form, or by cheque if they prefer. Cheques should be made payable to ecoArtcards and handed into the school with a completed order form. All cheques should be posted to us on your 'order by' date.
We process and print all the orders, then package them up to return to the school. Once you receive the ordered cards, all you have to do is hand them out. We organise the cards into classes and include a list of all the orders, with a full sales breakdown.
We need to have received the artwork for any project you’re taking part in at least six weeks before your term ends to allow plenty of time for orders to be placed, collected and delivered.
