  • The option to add a fundraising goal chart to show sales progress. Help supporters see how their purchases help your school reach goals.

  • On demand production ensures no waste. Only produce what your group sells.

How it works:

  1. We connect and discuss your organization’s fundraising program and how we can collaborate on a customized series of planners.

  2. I follow up with an agreement that will need to to be signed by your organization’s authority which will outline the details of the fundraiser including a commitment to order a minimum of 50 planners, defined sale start and ending dates, and cancellation fee.

  3. Your unique webpage will be created for you to review. Ordering details will include the type of planner (myWeek, myDay, myStudies), name of student and or classroom for distribution. Once approved it will be made live for the arranged order dates.

  4. You will be supplied with your own custom URL that you can promote on your organization’s website and or blog. You will also be provided a PDF Flyer designed by Crystal about the promotion that you can print and digitally distribute. After that, it’s up to the students to talk their family and friends and direct them to the online website and Crystal Ink takes it from there.

  5. After the order deadline, you will be provided a report on the summary of sales.

  6. Delivery of product will depend on the total number of books sold. So could be anywhere between 3-6 weeks. (Why so long you may ask? Well here is the thing, Crystal is the one who will be arranging the on demand printing of the books, as well as binding and packaging. All books are produced locally in Calgary, supporting local businesses, and quality management is key.)

  7. All planners will be labelled with customer name and classroom/student they assigned their online sale to. You will then receive as well your sponsored cheque based on final sales.

Dollars and Cents

Okay lets get down to brass tax. What kind of return will your school see as your students make sales?

  • Printing costs are reduced when printing in low numbers. So any total sales under $4,999 your school will receive 20% of gross sales ($999). If your sale are above $5000 you will benefit from the low cost of sales and get 30% of gross sales ($1,500)

  • For a school with an average of 1,000 students, and 10% of them sell at least two planners ($30 each), you will have a total sale of $6000 which gets you a 30% return ($1,800).

And because who doesn’t love a good chart… here is a quick look at how sales translate into money in your budget!

$0-4999 in Sales

$5000 + in Sales


 

What is the catch?

Well last time I checked, my health was good, so nothing icky to catch here. Each fundraising collaboration will be customized to the needs of each organization.

There is no upfront cost, but…. if after the fundraiser has been set up with all the designs and website created and the agreed minimum order is not met or your organization decides to cancel, there will be a cancellation fee of $150 to cover the expenses for the design, project management, and the cost of the financial fees to take sales and issue refunds.

No more wrapping paper, no more cookie dough, no more sausages, and the best part, no more hassles. Work with Crystal to get everything set up.


Who is this Crystal person?

Crystal has been part of the Calgary community since she first drew breath. She has a love of community and sees the power we all have in our hearts and minds. Crystal has always had an interest in day planners since her high school days, remember when schools provided planners to their students? Since then, the digital technology has altered how we track meetings, class times and appointments. But through it all, what iCal can’t do is the tactile focus you get with pencil/pen on paper. Young minds and seasoned ones both benefit from jotting down what we need to accomplish.

Crystal found it a challenge to work with pre-digital day planner systems and using her design skills she created undated systems that met her needs as a self employed creative business owner, mother of two gregarious girls and multi-tacker always striving to not drop the ball on what matters. These planners are the result of years of product development and collaborating with others who see the value in finding focus, bring clarity, live with intention and plan for wonder. 

The production of myLife planners is all done locally in Calgary. In fact, by Crystal’s own hands. From designing, to printing, to trimming, gluing, binding, and packaging. Opting to invest in the local Calgary community instead of global corporate interests, has a higher cost, but the savings to the environment and investing back into the local economy is priceless.
