Frequently Asked Questions

When is a good time to do a fundraiser?
Now! They make a wonderful keepsake for children and are popular gifts for parents, grandparents, relatives and friends. They offer a unique way to preserve your children’s artwork, remember friends and teachers forever, plus get used in everyday life. Instead of collecting dust in someone’s cupboard. The tea towels, aprons and bags can be a fabulous way to celebrate special occasions such as an anniversary, final year at school or open day and are great presents for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or Christmas.
How many drawings can we include?
One tea towel can contain any number of drawings from small groups to large groups. We would recommend not exceeding 400 portraits in one design. Mainly because it will mean each drawing is printed very small. For groups with numbers over 200 we suggest you draw faces only. So that each persons drawing can be seen clearly when printed.
You can choose to split the groups into their classes, year level or Junior & Senior groups. If you do decide on more than one design remember that each unique design requires a minimum order of 30.
What are your standard colours?
We can print any colour you desire. However our most popular choices are red, purple, green and blue.
Yellow is available, but we don’t normally recommend using it because it prints very light on white tea towels.
Can we do both tea towels AND aprons AND bags?
Yes. We can use your drawings to create unique designs for use on tea towels, aprons and bags. See the price lists for minimum order numbers.
How long does it take?
Allow up to 6 weeks from the time you post us your artwork to delivery (turnaround times are sometimes much faster). In term 4 allow an extra 2 weeks, due to the huge Christmas demand. The length of time it takes to complete the drawings or designs at your end is up to you – some groups are finished drawing in one day and others take a few weeks. The final layout will be ready for you to check and approve 1-2 weeks after we receive your artwork, in term 4 allow for 2 weeks. When the artwork is in your hands it is up to you how long you take to get back to us with changes or an approval. Once you approve the design the tea towels will be printed and ready to dispatch within 2 working weeks. You will then need to allow time for the delivery by courier (from Sydney, NSW).
If you have a deadline to meet, or live in a country or remote area, let us know as early as possible.
Can we do a design without drawings?
Yes, we can create a design using your crest, logo, a sketch, signatures, class lists or a special quote/saying. It can be as imaginative, creative or as simple as you like. Let our designer help you design something really unique and memorable. If you have an idea our graphic designer can help you bring it to life.
What is the minimum order?
The minimum order for each separate design is 30. The majority of our fundraisers achieve order numbers much higher than this. Please note that if you are doing more than one design, (eg. Class A & Class B, each unique design will be treated individually in regard to pricing and minimum orders).
Can we reorder?
Yes. Reorders are available anytime at your original purchase price; for example if you originally purchased 200 tea towels at $7.50 each, your reorder will be charged at $7.50 each.
What colours can we print in?
We can print in any colour that you want. We have suggested a few of our most popular colours above, but are happy to print any other colour, even match a specific colour if required. Our prices are all based on a single colour prints, if you need any additional colours used, please request a quote.
How are the drawings positioned?
The pictures can be placed in either landscape or portrait format. When we receive your drawings on A4 paper, we will scan in your pictures and lay out the drawings for you, adding your group’s name and logo to your specifications. We take the fuss out of choosing borders and fonts, these are chosen on your behalf. You are always welcome to request anything special and unique. We usually arrange the pictures into groups of the staff and classes. They are arranged in the best way possible to ensure all drawings are equally sized and as large as possible. For repeat customers we make sure the arrangement in consistent with previous years.

What borders can we use?
We use a few standard borders, our graphic designer chooses these and keeps them simple to make sure the design/drawings are the main focus of your fundraising product.

This could be anything from a specific icon, text of school details, animals or something completely unique.
