I was a PTA mom back in the 90s when my kids were in grade school. I wished there was a fundraiser out there that had some meaning and value and I also had a love and passion for art. I believed then and now that art should be a part of everyone’s life. These two desires were the impetus behind the creation of SilverGraphics in 1995.
It’s been a journey ever since and what’s most awesome about that journey are the people who have taken it with me, the amazing and dedicated SilverGraphics employees and all the school coordinators who spend so much time and care helping their schools to enrich the lives of their students.
I never could have imagined our present circumstances. My heart goes out to all the families, communities, businesses and nations affected by COVID-19. This is a time to support one another, a time for the best of humanity to show up. As we adjust to a new and challenging reality, many of you are working remotely, your students are engaged in online classes, and companies are reinventing how they do business. At SilverGraphics, we’ve gone digital, opening Online Art Shops for our schools, with most orders shipping direct to families.
However, due to the temporary closing of non-essential businesses in New York, we have had to suspend the production of your products at this time. We will resume when the ban is lifted and we can ensure the safety of our employees. I have personally suspended my salary until I can be assured that we will be able to meet our customers’ needs. Please know we are dedicated to serving you. Online shopping is in full swing and we will produce orders in an expedited manner as soon as possible. We sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.
To our customers, thank you so much for your continued orders to support your school. Thank you for appreciating the importance of art in this world and for preserving your child’s art on mementos that you both will treasure for years to come. Please read the pop-up that appears after you enter your access code to learn about your school’s ordering options.
To our school coordinators, I can’t tell how much we appreciate your understanding during this time. You have all been amazing to work with and your schools are very grateful, I’m sure, to have you as their advocate. Your school wide access code offers an easy way for parents to order, upload additional art produced during this time at home, or just have fun viewing the art from the students at your school. Custom pricing and schedule flexibility are absolutley available!
Please reach out any time with questions or concerns: [email protected].
We are all in this together,
President at SilverGraphics Studios Inc.
