Step 1 – Register / Book a Project
Step 2 – Your Greetings Card
Contemporary square greetings card
Little Paintbox greetings cards are designed in a contemporary square style. The front of the card shows the artwork, and the reverse of the card may include an image of the child (optional), the child’s name, and the title of the artwork printed on the reverse.
Artwork is printed on the front of the card The inside is blank so you may hand-write a personal message. We offer the option to print a message on the inside, for which there is an additional charge. Please see Inside Printing or contact us directly for details. The child’s name, photo, and artwork title is printed on the reverse of the card.
Step 3 – Preparing the artwork
As Little Paintbox cards are square in shape, the artwork must be created on plain white A4 paper that has been folded 9cm from the top of the page to create a square that is roughly the same shape as the cards. Write the child’s name, artwork title, and child code (if project run by school or nursery) in the area above the fold, and create the artwork in the area below the fold. You can download a blank template here.
Draw a line 9cm from the top of the paper. Fold paper so pencil line is on the inside of the fold. Print the child code, child name, and artwork title in the blank area above the fold.
Step 4 – Complete Your Class Register
As a school or nursery, you must complete the excel spreadsheet register showing each child participating in the Art Project. For each individual artwork, please include the child’s name, individual code and artwork title and return it to us by email as we need it digitally. Please Download the Class Register below.
