Important criteria:

The artist pays for the production of cards, the RNLI benefits from the proceeds.

 Generally artists keep a good proportion as business cards, gifts etc...

Artists who have produced a card/s for the studios have gained at
least one direct or tangental commission from being visible at the studios which far outweighs the cost.
