    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.

    I made:
    Brochures
    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.

    T-shirt
    Stickers
    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.

    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.

    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 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:

    $20 for:
    --"Super!" rubber stamp
    --Banner to match our school year theme
    [​IMG]
    --Large Magnet
    [​IMG]
    --Incomplete Assignment Cards
    [​IMG]
    --Large Postcards for "Oops" Cards
    [​IMG]
    --Large Magnets (I left blank so I can use for different things)
    [​IMG]
    --Homework Passes

    (The expensive one was the banner, but it was worth it to have one for our theme verse!)

    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...

    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!

    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!)

    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?

    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)...???

    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.
    [​IMG]

    Business Cards
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Two pens with my name and 'please return'
    A stamp that says 'Outstanding Penmanship' and another that says 'Please label your answers'

    Bumper Stickers:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Two post it notes:

    One that just has my name and these for my copies
    [​IMG]

    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?":eek:

    Fun though.
