All of our Christmas cards are printed on board which has the FSC accreditation which means it is printed on board that is from sustainable managed forests.
Although we call this our school christmas card fundraiser we don’t JUST print Christmas cards. We have found that a small range of other additional products enhances the appeal to parents and increases profits for the school. As a result we offer four different printed products all of which are based on the artwork from your children. The four core products, that we produce are:
The core product (and always the most popular) are our great quality A6 folded Christmas cards. They come in packs of 12 cards with 12 white envelopes. They are printed on the front with you child’s design and then the back is printed with the details that you choose (typically the child’s name and school name). We can even print your school logo on the reverse of the card at no additional charge, just ask!
Thank You Cards
A popular option with parents are our thank cards. Printed on the same quality board as our Christmas cards they come an internal message of “Thank You”. Each pack contains 12 cards and 12 white envelopes. They are printed with your child’s design and name. A great way to encourage your children to write thank you notes for their Christmas presents.
Self Adhesive Gift Tags
Another popular option are our self adhesive gift labels (42 in a pack). Printed on 38mm x 99mm semi-gloss labels they are a quality addition to our range of products. Printed with your child’s design and name they have plenty of space for addressing gifts even for those written by the smallest of children.
A value pack consists of a pack of 12 Christmas cards, 12 thank you cards and a pack of 42 self adhesive gift tags.

Our standard service is used by the vast majority of our clients but sometimes people request something more and for this we offer a number of optional extras. These include
Hand Scanning (Using Paints, Glitter, Collages)
Our standard service provides for children’s designs to be created using colouring pencil, felt tips and crayons. This is because all of the children’s designs can then be safely feed through our automatic sheet fed document scanner. This allows us to process returned designs quicker and keeps the price of our cards low. However we know that some schools would rather create designs using paint, pastels, glitter and collages (using all manner of materials). In these instances we need to scan each sheet “on the glass” and by hand. This process takes considerably longer and so we charge an additional £30 when the number of the hand scanned drawings exceeds 60.
FREE School Logos
If your school has a logo that you would like printed on the reverse of your cards then we can incorporate this for you FREE OF CHARGE.
Custom Interior Message
All of our cards can be printed inside with either “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year”, “Season’s Greetings” or blank included within our standard pricing. If you would like a custom message printed inside the cards (it must be the same across all cards and will be printed in black ink) then we can do this for an additional 20p per pack of cards.
