Some families expressed concern about the company ceasing trading in the run-up to Christmas.

One parent told BBC Scotland: “My daughter”s school was one of those that had signed up with this company to produce cards drawn by its pupils.

“We”ve already paid £12 for two packs that we won”t now be receiving. Have been told we”ll get our money back. I remain to be convinced.”
