    I'm placing an order on Vistaprint and want to make sure I've gotten everything I need :lol: I did the groupon, which was for $70.

    So what are your favorite items and must haves you've purchased from VP?

    I've made vinyl banners - love them!
    outdoor signs - super quality
    "large" magnets (about 4X5) - great
    business cards are wonderful
    guess I just like VP!

    vinyl banners - usually free!!
    business cards for "dog ate my homework" pass and "multiplication master" punch card
    postcards - welcome back - send prior to school
    magnetic business cards - for Open House with school contact/home phone info - this year I want to add a QR code that is a quick link to grade level website

    I know I am forgetting something big...

    I use their postcards as good notes for behavior and good grades on tests.

    I like the magnetic business cards, the postcards, and the pens. I love the personalized pens!

    I love making personalized stickers from their return address stickers.

    So I'll do a whale with "Mrs. Aliceacc says you did a WHALE of a good job on that geometry test!"

    or a dog with
    "Mrs. Aliceacc says that was a DOGGONE good geometry grade!"

    or a picture of a star with
    "Mrs. Aliceacc says this geometry grade makes you a shining star!"

    I have Halloween ones (that geometry grade was a real TREAT!) and Christmas ones (Mrs.Aliceacc says this geometry grade puts you on Santa's GOOD list).

    The kids LOVE them!!!

    Love the idea, Alice (as always) :)

    I love the postcards (I use them for Mrs. C's smilegrams), business cards, and the small magnets (with my info on them).

    In this last order I made some rack cards with a checklist for accountable talk along with sentence stems for them to use. We're focusing on accountable talk this year and I am excited about having the cards there.

    I ordered some rack cards for the "say something" reading discussion strategy I've mentioned on here before. They've held up nicely.

    I also like the postcards to send positive notes home, and I have a pretty vinyl banner that says "English: Read, Write, Speak and Listen Every Day." I write my objective underneath it. :)

    I always get business card magnets with my web address. I like to send them home with the students' welcome cards.

    bandnerd-what are the say something discussions? I'm not sure I've seen that before!

    I just finally submitted my order! I got a lot of cool stuff and I'm excited to see it when it gets here. I used the $70 groupon and then bought an additional $35 worth of items to get the free shipping (had to spend at least $25 above the groupon). I know I'll put it all to good use!

    I like so many, but find that the postcards are the items I actually use the most.

    You're doing one better than me at least! I love that idea and definitely think I'll incorporate it this year!
