We try to make this as easy as possible for you. Unlike many other projects, we pick everything up from you so no need to go to the post office. Also, as the parents order directly online the school does not need to process any orders or handle any money.
The amount the school raises depends when we receive the artwork to print. The more the parents are encouraged to anticipate, the more the school can raise. Our top earning school last year raised over £600 in fundraising.
No. The project is open to any organisation although it is not open to individuals. The more children that can be encouraged to participate, the more the school can earn but there are no minimum orders.
No. Included in your Welcome Back will be sacks ready for our couriers to collect all the artwork. Once we know how many sacks need to be collected, we will email you delivery sheets to be attached in the sticky pockets we provide.
The best way to maximise funds raised is to engage with your teachers and parents early in the Autumn term. We supply a number of resources to put up around the school or to use on social media. The earlier parents know about the project, the more likely they are to use it before they buy their cards elsewhere.
We also recommend making sure the parent orders are placed early October and the collection booked in the middle of October so there's no rush over half-terms to make the deadline.
All artwork must be ready to be collected by our couriers. If any artwork is not included in the collection, the parent will be refunded for their order. We do not process any artwork that has been posted.
Multiple orders can be placed for each artwork so the child can take the artwork to each parent and each can place their own order using the same artwork code. The child will then receive each order separated to give to each parent.
