Got this one today: http://ebm.e.vistaprint.com/c/tag/hBOC01LAZdBOAB8cHeQCGyVN5tm/doc.html?
I spent an afternoon recently creating posters!
I'm yearning for some new ideas! Already placed 2 orders, and can't wait to do more. I have an email with lots of freebies, so I'm trying to get full use of it.
Oops!!! Postcards (got the idea here somewhere...)
Red stamp (FINAL COPY To Be Filed for IEP paperwork)
Banner (Proud *mascot* Learning Zone School Name) in school colors -- I got stuck on ideas, just knew it was awesome to get one free.
Rubber stamp with school's address
Have some new ideas I'm working on, after searching older threads.
Thanks for sharing!
I've been drooling over Vistaprint all day today, thanks to all this chatter about the website!...and had to go to Walmart to get pictures developed. They have a deal to get a banner for $3-$20 there. The prices depend on the size, but if you have a 1 hour photo place in your Walmart, it might be worth checking into.
I'm debating because I can't seem to get my brain in gear with what to decorate this coming year. I've got bulletin board stuff of beach, palm trees, and surfing penguins under my bed...it's becoming a treasure trove that I hope my husband avoids looking under there.
Mrs K ~ thanks for the link. I only spent $16.95 for all of the following :thumb:
250 business cards for a club I sponsor
24 small circle stickers
and I bought a notebook for the first time
and one sticky note pad with my name
Yay vista :wub:
Those are adorable!!!!
(I'm still on vista's website---man, there's so much stuff!!)
I have to go on and order more stuff! My shipping was CRAZY last time. . . Like $40... so I got a little annoyed.
Thanks for sharing! I will be ordering later tonight or tomorrow!
Wow! Thanks for that link! I just placed my first order on vistaprint and I am so excited to get my stuff!
Thanks a lot! I've been waiting on postcards to go back on sale =D I got a set of postcards (welcome notes for parents with contact info), some notecards, and a behavior chart banner!
I got that, too! Of course, I just put in an order a few days ago, but I didn't have any offers for the free mouse pads. Sigh...I guess I'll have to go get more.
The school pride banner is a great idea!
NICE!!! looks like another order is going through; LOL
Thanks, Mrs. K.

I was up until midnight placing an order...I'm thinking I'm in need of Vista Print Intervention because I had my cart FULL of things that I ended up having to limit myself greatly because my budgeted spending was being exceeded tremendously on all that FREE stuff's shipping. LOL
After I placed my order, my eyes were seriously exhausted from being "creative"!
you can split up your order so that the shipping is less. All the things you created should be in your portfolio even if you didn't order them. You can use the same ad, go into your portfolio and add those to your cart for a new order. I play around a lot with what I order to lower my shipping costs. There are a few things I found that make your shipping higher so I try not to place those things together in the same order.
Thanks for that tip! Where were you at midnight when I was working through it all? LOL
I have a few other things that I really WANT (the word NEED has escaped from my vocabulary with Vista Print...) to get that I just might go back and place another order.
:lol: go back and search for Vista print threads . . . we have all admitted to being vista addicts and some summers we formed support groups :lol:
and wait until you get your first order and see the quality of your items . . then you'll be hooked/addicted for sure
I spent $16 and got:
--return address stamp for home
--magnets with contact info for parents
--stickers for behavior chart rewards
--Happy Birthday poster to hand on student desks
--Good News postcards
--Rack Cards to use as coaching/reading discussion starter bookmarks
Now to make my second order...
I just got a notepad, a poster, a sticky note and some business cards (that I'm using for yearbook marketing) for $7.
I really wanted the rack cards and small magnets, to use for my yearbook kids, but I didn't have the information with me that I wanted to put on them. Maybe next time...
Okay, second (and final!) order done:
--"Super!" rubber stamp
--Banner to match our school year theme
--Incomplete Assignment Cards
--Large Postcards for "Oops" Cards
--Large Magnets (I left blank so I can use for different things)
(The expensive one was the banner, but it was worth it to have one for our theme verse!)
I love these! I am so excited to see my stuff! I wanted to make a poster or banner too, but I could not think of anything to put on... Next time! I am excited to see the quality of the stuff!
I so knew better than start looking at Vistaprint threads, but I did it anyway. I still have a few more things I would like, but I'll pace myself for now. I'm waiting on 3 orders...
What is the Oops post card? Looks cute, but I can't read it.
Thanks so much Mrs. K! I don't get emails from vistaprint anymore for some reason. I can't wait to place my order!

swocean, the Oops! card is good for an extra day on a late/forgotten homework assignment. I give the kids 2 per grading period (I make them on oversized postcards and cut them in half).
OMG you guys! I just got an email for free shipping on orders over $1! You can only order the free items and some items are limited, but I got 6 things for $1.49. I paid for red ink for a stamp - even that was 25% off!
Here's the link: VistaPrint Rocks!
Wow! Free shipping too! That is awesome! How long is that good for? Ama that is cute, great idea! Thanks for sharing!
I'm friends with Vista on FB (Gosh, I don't know why...) and they just posted that they will have a scheduled shut down tonight on their website.
Wow!! Thanks for sharing that link! (Good grief, another reason why I need to spend more time on their website...along with the reason that I feel like I have to hurry and place an order before they shut down their website tonight!)
Excited about the free shipping! I'm going to do a follow-up order for as few $$ as possible.
I once made up postacards that said, on the front, "A Note from your teacher" across the top, and my teacher name on the bottom. The graphic was something school-ey. I plan to use them for "goody notes" where I write a nice note on the back (blank) side.
AMAKAYE - What do the "OOPS" cards and "Incomplete Assignment" cards say?
I feel the VP monster rising up in my head!! Watch out, wallet!
imagine finding you back on a vista print thread pwhatley . . . :lol: :lol:
So unfair...free shipping?!?! I've already done 3 orders...
What else do I need, er, want??

Thank you for posting these! I couldn't get some of my previous orders to work, but was successful with this offer! You've made my day!
When I opened the link and read the 'card,' I understood it to say save 25% on your NEXT order and free shipping on orders over $1 (I thought it meant on the order where you get 25% off, not on the free offers now)...???
With the 4th of July email I received I ordered a Welcome to _____'s Classroom poster, an Extra Day Homework Pass Address Labels (my kids stick them inside their agendas) and some Character of the Month Postcards all for $7 and change...not bad!
What do you put on the address labels, Pisces?
I've used the 4th of July ad twice now. I ordered a total of 12 things for just over $3!
This was free invitations that I changed to Thank You cards.
Two pens with my name and 'please return'
A stamp that says 'Outstanding Penmanship' and another that says 'Please label your answers'
Two post it notes:
One that just has my name and these for my copies
A car door magnet that encourages students to share news from home
and a tote bag that I am gifting to one of my colleagues.
To say I'm addicted is putting it mildly. I keep thinking, "What else can I order before the 8th?"
