A guide to get the best out of the project
We want your children to get the best results from their artwork. We have created a few do's and don'ts to achieve the best results. Below are some example drawings from previous years.
During the printing process we need to trim into the artwork by about 5 mm from all four sides.
Important parts of the drawing may get cut off.
Ensure that nothing important (text or a really important part of a picture) is close to any edge.
Collages work great but reflective materials, such as glossy photos, shiny paper, metallic ink, Sellotape etc does not scan very well.
Scanning anything shiny can result in parts of the artwork disappearing or large white splodges appearing.
Avoid using anything shiny and if anything needs sticking down then use glue rather than sellotape.
Artwork produces the best result when there's a good contrast in colour between the drawings and the background. Faint pencils or for example, blue paint on blue paper, does not scan very well.
If the drawing is the same colour as the background or faint pencil is used, it may disappear
Use nice bold colours, firmly applied with a difference between the colour and the background.
