ATTN: Class of 2018
Wood Charmer has a novel new and unique approach to fundraising, and we’re hoping you’ll agree, that this is not only a great way to earn money for your senior class activities but also a trend setting addition to you Spirit Week tradition.
Here’s what we’re proposing;
STEP ONE: email us (email@example.com) a picture of your school mascot, varsity letters or emblem. We handle all the graphic work to ensure every detail of your school mascot is clearly depicted on a small 0.5 to 0.75 inch charm that will hang for our hand-beaded, Fair Trade bracelets. We’ll also design some larger (1.5 inch) wooden Spirit Charms, these are perfect for hanging on backpack zips, lanyard clips and keychains. We encourage designing a charm for both your mascot and your varsity letters. We don’t charge a graphic design fee for this service, and it will allow you to offer a bit of a selection.
We use natural wood in our charms, and have a few various options of wood types available. The lightest in our range is maple, with little or subtle grain pattern, this is the best choice for mascots with a lot of detail. Oak is a medium tone wood with rich color variances in the grain, making it the perfect choice for a rustic look. Walnut is the darkest of the range, its sophisticated hues makes it an excellent choice for varsity letters. All our layered woods have walnut at the core, allowing for deep richly contrasting “wood burn” engraving.
STEP TWO: Select the Czech glass bead colors that best represent your school. We’ll work with you to design a beading pattern that best suits your school’s style. Most high schools use a two color combination with black and white as accents. You will also select the color of the embroidery thread that will be woven through the bracelet and out into the ties. Two colored beads add an additional accent to the Spirit Charms.
STEP THREE: Kindly place your order by Aug. 1st, 2017 to take advantage of our 250 Free Spirit Charms promotion. This will ensure we have the time to custom craft your charms, hand-bead the bracelets in South Africa, and have them delivered to your school in time and on schedule for Spirit Week.
