PTA Greeting Card Project

Children's Christmas Card design

Cavendish PTA is delighted to announce that we will be running the Cavendish Greeting Card Project this year, which will allow Cavendish children and/or siblings the opportunity to have their very own drawings turned into cards.

We have introduced it at this time of year because Christmas is just around the corner and lends itself perfectly.  But for those families who would prefer to prepare for other festivals and occasions the project can cater for all.

Introduced as a direct result of parental requests and interest, Cavendish PTA is undertaking this project in partnership with Art Projects for Schools Ltd (APFS).  The funds raised through your support will be ploughed back into Cavendish and used to enrich our children’s educational journey.

So how will it work?

If you would like to take part all we will need is your child’s artwork, created on an A4 piece of paper or card and submitted to the school office no later than Wednesday the 4th November 2015.  The artwork will need to be submitted with an order form and completion of payment.

The order forms will be issued via the children’s book bags week commencing 19th October, 2015.

All the entries will be collected by an APFS courier from school.  To avoid paying individual postage and handling fees you must meet the deadline.  Plus any late orders will not benefit the school’s fundraising efforts.

How much will it cost?

How do you make a payment?

Payment via cash or cheque to the school office and as part of submitting the artwork. Place the artwork, order form and payment in an envelope marked Cavendish PTA Greeting Card Project.  All cheques made payable to: Cavendish PTA not the school.

 Artwork guidelines?

  • All artwork should be created on an A4 piece of paper or card
  • Artwork can be portrait or landscape
  • Coloured or white paper or card can be used
  • Do not use glitter
  • Everything visible on the front of the artwork will be printed, However 2-3mm around the edge may be lost due to the nature of the scanning process. To avoid losing words or part of the image please encourage children NOT to write/draw up to the edge.
  • Please fix any pastel or charcoal drawings with either fixative or hair spray to avoid smudging during transit
  • Reflective materials DO NOT reproduce well.  So please avoid materials like foil or similar.
  • Avoid any type of pearlised paint or fluorescent/highlighter pens as they also do not reproduce well during the scanning process.
  • There is no need to reverse any lettering
  • Please note that due to copyright APFS cannot reproduce pictures from books, magazines, the internet or school photographs produced by an outside agency without permission from the owner of the original work.  However, collaged artwork made from pictures/words cut abstractly from a magazine or newspaper are allowed in most circumstances.


Any enquiries relating to the project can be addressed direct to the PTA by emailing: or message us on Facebook or Twitter.

We hope you enjoy participating in our Cavendish Greetings Card Project for 2015.
