How To Make Money..

Most clubs, schools and sports teams need to raise funds to keep them going. Your club might need redecorating, your school may need a vital piece of equipment or your football team could use some new goalposts – all of these things cost money!

By selling calendars bespoke calendars featuring team, club or class members to their friends and families, we can help you to raise money relatively easily.

What makes our service unique is our ability to create very specific calendars that represent each group’s own character. For example, within a typical rugby club’s mini and junior section, instead of producing club calendars that may not appeal to everyone, we are able to create individual calendars for each age group. So instead of trying to sell 200 calendars of the exact same design, you can sell 10 different designs of 20 each. As our service is fully online, it’s simple for a representative from each age group to create a calendar that only features players from that age group.

If your organisation sells only 100 calendars, you could easily make a profit of £500. You could increase this sum further by getting local businesses to sponsor your calendar. There is space on each calendar page to include an advert or logo and at £50 per advert per page, your profit could easily double!

AND WHAT’S MORE, THERE IS NO UPFRONT CHARGE WHATSOEVER SO THERE IS NO RISK TO YOU.

These figures are for guide purposes only. What you charge per calendar and for advertising is entirely up to you. We assume you make a profit of £5 per calendar sold and £50 per sponsors advert. You could easily charge more – you decide.

EXPERIENCE SHOWS THAT THIS FUNDRAISING IDEA ISN’T A ONE-OFF. PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS TEND TO PURCHASE EVERY YEAR AND KEEP THEM AS A RECORD OF THE CHILDREN GROWING UP SO YOU COULD BE MAKING A HANDSOME RETURN  YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER YEAR!

We also print produce exhibition stands and graphics, marketing collateral and a huge range of display products.
