Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 03, 2009 -- The family-owned and managed business School Card Shop have just released their new website schoolcardshop.co.uk. The company advertises fundraising ideas which make it possible for schools and groups across the country to fundraise thousands of pounds by creating personalised Christmas cards, T-shirts and other personalised gifts. The school fundraiser project is not only educational, giving the child a true sense of achievement, but most importantly fun. The experienced management team at School Card Shop have been supplying local schools with school fundraising ideas for several years but this project, which has been established for a few years, is looking to seriously improve school fundraising possibilities around the Christmas period.
The process is very simple â pupils design their school Christmas cards on a supplied template, which teachers will then send back to the company. School Card Shop prints a sample card and an order form and returns this to the teacher. The pupils can sell the packs of 10 handmade Christmas cards to family and friends. So how does this work as schools fundraising? For every pack of cards sold, a minimum of Â£1.50 is raised.
The new website will make the process easier and simpler for the users â speeding up the ordering process of the schools Christmas cards and providing the participating schools with a secure and private project control interface. Parents can log into the site and pick items they wish to purchase. The selection of items has also increased â the card design can also be printed onto mugs, coasters, t-shirts etc. All which make perfect Christmas presents and great school fund raisers. Parents can then send the link onto other friends and relatives.
Essentially the new website is an improved and widened e-commerce solution. The functionality has been increased to improve the customer experience and thus provide more fundraising for schools and groups. The process has been streamlined, but added support for users has been increased.
The company operates an ethical and no risk policy. There is no initial outlay for the school â something that many other schemes do not offer. School Card Shop is the UKâs most advanced personalized Christmas cards fundraising programme due to its experience and expertise in print technology. They can therefore offer every child their own individual design, which has been shown through their experience to increase the chance of the children selling their cards.
Schools can register online to join the school fundraising ideas. They will receive a marketing pack to help them advertise the programme, which includes card samples and letter/pr templates. The whole process, including the new website, is aimed at making everything as simple as possible in order to increase the likelihood of parents and relatives making a purchase â as a result making their school fund raising as easy as possible while providing kids Christmas cards that are a great learning tool.
