Artwork Guidelines (or getting the results)

We have seen hundreds of thousands of children’s drawings in the 10+ years we have been producing fundraising products for schools.  The designs that ALWAYS work best are those that are bright and colourful and fill the drawing area.  Feint drawings with lots of white background rarely produce the best results.  Some more detailed guidelines are set out below.

Good Ideas

  • Bright colourful pictures that fill the box
  • Using felt tip pens
  • Using colourful crayons and pencils
  • Completing the design in the classroom
  • Putting a cross in the box to indicate the orientation of the drawing

Bad Ideas

  • Feint pencil drawings (they do not print well)
  • Glitter (we will NOT scan)
  • Chalks, pastels or charcoal
  • Including text/images very close to the edge
  • Doing this as homework

All artwork should ALWAYS be completed on our supplied DRAWING TEMPLATES.  These are designed to go through our scanners and have the names/drawings in very specific places on the sheet for fast and effIcient processing of your artwork.

PLEASE DO NOT PHOTOCOPY OUR DRAWING TEMPLATES.  THIS CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS WITH THE SCANNING AS THEY ARE OFTEN SCALED/SKEWED OR POORLY COPIED WHICH RESULTS IN A LOW QUALITY PRINTED PRODUCT FOR YOUR CHILDREN AND PARENTS.
