Welcome to School with Photo Expressions! We are a family-owned and operated small business founded in 1983. Over the years, we have spread from our humble beginnings in Maple Ridge, BC, to service schools across BC and across Canada.
Let’s see how we can help your school simplify and amplify your fundraising, while not burning out your fundraising committee!
#1 – School Portraits (yes this service can be a fundraiser!)
Is your school getting tired of the “same old” school portraits?
Maybe it is time to explore something fresh!
And here’s an idea – school portraits that parents and students love, without headaches for school admin!
Please note, all sample portraits on this page are from live photo-day shoots!
In our image-saturated world, parents want more than just the “Classic School Head Shot”. Photo Expressions delivers for the modern parent with multiple creative poses for every student.
#2 – Created By Kids School Art Fundraiser
Your school keeps 30% of every order placed!
Created by Kids is a fun and profitable student art fundraising opportunity for your school that has many advantages over regular, student-sales fundraisers:
- Offers greeting cards and more than 20 other unique products, from keychains to wall portraits and blankets, puzzles and even several types of drinking mugs (see some products here) personalized for every student
- Charges zero fees (no materials fees, admin fees, credit card fees, etc.) and is risk-free for the school – you start to profit on order #1
- Pays out 30% of every order to the school! (and remember – no fees)
- Has a simple online ordering process (no cash or cheques to handle, super easy for parents to order from a phone)
- Requires only a few hours of admin time from 1 or 2 volunteers
- Charges NO shipping costs within British Columbia! (minimal costs across Canada outside BC)
- Turns students into proud, published artists at the same time, all without any door-to-door selling
- A local, B.C. Canadian family-owned company, ready to work with you personally on this fundraising project to help you succeed.
This is the can’t-miss, must-do fundraiser for all schools in COVID times, as record results have been seen during the pandemic.
#3 – Elementary School Yearbooks
Q: Wait – aren’t those only for high schools?
A: They used to be!
Q: And aren’t they super expensive?
A: They used to be!
Looking for beautiful, full-colour yearbooks with customizable options, made in BC and priced in Canadian dollars? Look no further!
A school or class yearbook is the perfect way to preserve memories and raise money for your school. At Photo Expressions foto source, we offer options to suit your needs so that you can support your school both financially and in community spirit.
These yearbooks are NOT intended for high schools. But they are PERFECT for elementary schools.
(However, we do offer custom hard-cover yearbooks for elementary, middle schools, high schools and private schools – just fill out the contact form below for details).
Your yearbook will be printed in full colour on high-quality paper with a card-stock cover, and can be bound 2 ways. You can create a custom front cover, hold a “cover contest” in your school, or we can photograph your school to create a custom cover at no extra charge.
You do the design, or we do it all for you – it’s your choice!
