We need artists to help us produce a series of Bude Christmas Cards…
We’re asked for Bude Christmas cards every year. This year, we’ve decided to see if we can produce a series of unique cards to sell at the Bude Tourist Information Centre and to supply them to the shops in town.
As this is a trial, we cant risk printing a huge volume, so the start-up costs will be significant (production costs could be as much as 50p each). We need to earn a small profit, give a donation to charity for each card sold, pay for the printing and the envelopes. In addition, we need to pay for the images to be used. Other outlets stocking them will need to earn a profit from the sale too.
If you want to be involved in this exciting project, please come and have a chat. We’re open to discussion – we just want to get the project off the ground. You don’t need to be a professional artist! We simply need great designs to produce a series of cards which will result in sales.
THE IMPORTANT BITS…
- The card will be A5 in size, printed on 350gsm silk board.
- The image will need a bleed/margin of 3mm, so you’ll need to supply an image 3mm larger than A5.
- The image may include text, such as ‘Happy Christmas’ or ‘Christmas Wishes from Bude’… the text is for you to decide.
- We can scan your picture, or you supply it as a digital file in very high resolution.
- The image must be relevant to Bude and the surrounding area.
- All submitted images must be your own work.
- There is a possibility that submitted images will be used for other marketing projects.
- You’ll have your name and details printed on the back of the card.
- A % of profits from each sale will be donated to a Bude charity or community organisation.
