The project should be lots of fun for the kids, the staff and the parents

Special Christmas Offer

 

Firstly a little about us:-

 

Back in 1975 Countryside Art were the first company to have the idea of printing school children’s drawings on to tea towels when the pupils of Eresby Special School in Spilsby used to visit our first workshops for design and printing work experience.  (If you would like to see more about this period in our company’s history you can read about it on our ‘About Us’ page).

 

Now over 40 years later Countryside Art is well established as the UK’s leading supplier of top quality giftware to many of the country’s top organisations such as National Trust. The British Museum, Cadbury, Chatsworth House, Royal National Lifeboat Institution…..we could list hundreds more.

 

We’ve been relentlessly copied ever since by other companies but our school tea towels plus our other superb quality school giftware products still remain ‘The Original & Best’. 

 

We approach every aspect of the production of our school giftware with exactly the same care and attention we provide to all our top customers.  For instance, one day our designers will be working on a new design project for The British Museum, the next day preparing your full colour bag design for print. 

 

Producing a tea towel, or any of our other best-selling products, is a great project in which to involve the whole school. 

 

It is very easy and we’ve produced a video on how to use our artwork kit involving the kind assistance from one of our local schools, Halton Holgate C of E Primary School. 

 

This is all you need to do:-

 

Step 1: Send off for as many artwork kits as you need for your project (two products can be designed from each kit).

 

Step 2: Follow the easy instructions contained in the kit to create your design (kit instructions are also available in the ‘Downloads’ section of the website as well as the order form, choice of borders, colours and price lists). 

 

Step 3: Return your completed order form and design/s in the same tube/s.  Let us know if you want to receive a visual, or bypass that stage and opt for our Express Service and then leave the rest to us.

 

Step 4: We will confirm receipt of your order (send a visual if requested) and then in a short time dispatch your beautiful, top quality, school giftware to sell to all your happy parents and children.  We invoice you when the goods are despatched and then you have 30 days to pay.

 

Sounds simple – and it is!

 

Throughout every stage of the process our very helpful Sales Team and Designers are on hand to assist with any queries you may have so please do call or email, we are always happy to help in any way we can.

 

We have also included a list of FAQs covering the main questions we are asked.
