    I just placed my first Vista Print Order. I got $80 worth of free stuff. Hopefully when it comes I'll really like it. I thought I'd try it out since all of you love it!

    I received my first 5 (yes, 5 I am addicted) orders within 2 days of each other. My hubby and kids think I am crazy because everytime a box comes in, I am like a kid on Christmas morning.

    My dh keeps giving me looks- every day this week I have gotten something from them. I love just about everything though (except the window clings). I have made a shirt I want to order, but don't know what else I want to make...

    What all do you order from Vista Print? I usually get business cards for my parents and a name stamp, but that's all. What am I missing out on? :)

    I've been keeping track of everyone's orders with links on my site. You can check them out here and see what everyone has done: http://www.msjensenclass.com/Teacher_Resources/vistaprint_ideas.htm (Hey if I missed anyone's just send me the link in PM and I'll put you down)

    Great ideas!!!! I'm just so sad I'm no a tight budget now that I have no paychecks coming in for the summer. :mad: I want to order more stuff!!!!!

    Katenar - Thank you so much for putting all those links in one place. I sometimes see something and then can't remember it later when I am ready to order. Everyone has been such an inspiration!

    I made cute business cards that say "Lunch Bunch Ticket - Collect five tickets and redeem for lunch with Ms. teachertexas and a friend."

    I also made flat notecards with a superhero. At the top it just says "You Are Super". I thought they would be perfect for kids or adults.

    I noticed when I looked through my order history that I have ordered from Vistaprint for three years, usually in the summer. And every single year I have ordered a "Please Sign and Return" stamp!:eek:
    Where have I been hiding these stamps? Clearly I need to check my order history before I order things from now on.

    Okay...so this is a sick habit. I've now placed two more orders because I looked at some of your ideas. I'm officially banning myself from VP for a while.

    Okay. I'm now officially hooked on VistaPrint. I've only ordered business cards in the past. For the last 2 hours, I have been working on a huge order. Wow. They have a lot of free stuff right now. ;)

    I love vista print but be careful nobody told me but when you order you are automatically placed into their reward program which takes around 14 dollars a month out of the account that you used. You can cancel it at anytime but I didn't know why they were taking the money out and then I called one day and they told me why. I just placed another order a few weeks ago and they put me back in and took the 14 dollars out. I canceled through email but just watch your account. :)

    You are only "automatically placed" if you click something on the last screen. I have been buying from them for 3 years now, and have never been charged anything extra.

    You guys are nuts!! J/K :lol: I went to the website to check out what they had. There are a lot of free things but the shipping isn't cheap! Then, they suggest ALL of this other stuff that you MIGHT be interested in. I guess since they are giving you free things they try to get you to spend money on other stuff. I might place an order but I havn't decided yet. The only thing I need is something like business cards for when I start advertising for home tutoring. Someone on another post said you can get free postcards but I couldn't find where.

    I just received part of my first order today. I haven't had any extra money taken from my account. Has anyone else encountered this problem?

    You could start a brand new account. Maybe they sent an email one time that you responded to and it coded you somehow. I don't know but I bet if you started a new account you wouldn't have the problem anymore.

    I have been ordering like crazy, but they haven't taken extra money out of my account. Good thing, too, 'cause I'm broke enough as it is!

    I've heard not so good things about this company (from Mommaruthie (I think?) back in the day), but perhaps they've improved! But on the contrary, my best friend ordered business cards for her parents last year and still has several left to use for this following year. She received them promptly and they look great.

    That's the idea, loves2teach. I'm trying to work smarter, not harder.
