Selling Greeting Cards and Notelets is one way we raise vital funds for our Charity and this year we want to give our supporters more choice than ever.In this competition, we want YOU to come up with exciting designs for our 2019 cards which will go on sale in our web shop and on our stand at shows during the Season
The design does not need to relate directly to the fund, the object is for you to submit a card that appeals to all types of people who buy our cards every year. We intend to sell individual cards that can be used for occasions such as thank you, birthday etc, or Notelets.

It can be any type of design!

Your design is for the front of the card only and must be A5 in size (210mm x 148mm) and don’t forget to give your design a title! You can post your entry to the address shown on the entry form. If you have digital designs, please contact us for more information on how to submit these. No scanned entries will be accepted (with the exception of high res photos of existing artist paintings/drawings etc).

Entry forms can be downloaded here
