    Never spend more than $ 15 on shipping only-and never pay for items-and you'll come out ok!

    The free shipping was over the fourth of July weekend. If I get another email for free shipping I will post the link.

    Anyone have any good deals? The ones they send me are very limited and I want to re-order things in my portfolio from last year.

    I found out last night that you can use different emails together. Here's what I did: I would click the link from one email that have me, say, fee business cards, then design them all the way through to the shopping cart. Then I would open my email again in another window, and click another link, which would open yet another VP window. I would design something else through to the cart, but my cards were still there even though it was through another window. I kept doing that until it started charging. I only had to make two orders for a bunch of items!

    Hope that makes sense. One shipping charge was $11.86, one was $9.02 (or something like that).

    I'm becoming a Vista Print snob....LOL I have to have FREE stuff and little shipping, my limit is $20. I have to set a limit or I'd be spending my salary. It's funny, I'm thinking teachers keep Vista Print in business!

    I just got my orders today...they actually combined all 3 orders into one shipment.

    The banner is AWESOME!!!! Larger than I anticipated but superb quality and free...Love it.

    I missed the free shipping link, but I'm still happy with the great things I got.

    I just received two of my orders in one box. As usual the quality is even better than it looked online.

    However- my lawn sign was crunched in one corner - probably by the post office. :( I'm disappointed, but it still looks okay.

    Call them- they will resend it. I had the same thing happen before :) Usually, they will overnight it too (if you mention that you need it now).

    I wish I had some ideas to take advantage of this website like you all do. How much do you all end up spending?

    I just finished placing 14 orders. My total: $23.11!

    I love Vista Print, but I think I am set for a while...or at least until they offer free shipping on banners, posters, postcards, etc! :)

    I think I'm done for a while, too. Until I see free uploads. Then, all bets are off.:blush:

    I, too, am done for a bit. There's a possibility I may change schools, but the only thing I will have to change will be the business cards with contact info for me, because I have made everything non-school specific (go Saints!).

    Someone got 14 orders for $23? How many items on each order? I've had cheap shipping before, but never less than $ 2 per order!

    There was free shipping a little while ago. Apparently some people were able to combine offers and get free products and free shipping.

    Thanks you guys. I just placed 3 orders.

    Since I won't have a homeroom, I don't need posters or banners. So I just got:
    - 3 sets of personalized stickers: one whale, one Halloween, one Christmas
    - One set of note cards
    - 3 sets of small magnets. I include them in our family Christmas cards each year.

    It was free shipping as long as you spent over $1, so I got the free items (business cards, pens, bumper stickers, car magnets, flat announcements/invitations, and small rubber stamps). Then I ordered stamp ink pads to get my order over $1 (you could order blue, black or red ink pads for $1.49). So yes, I will be getting 84 items for a little over $23!

    The items will not only stock up my supply of VistaPrint "needs," but also the "needs" of several other teachers as well!

    Personally, I would not. I am just too busy (read lazy) to call about something like this. Mine was in a few pieces too, but it was still sticky.

    Others on here have said that VP will replace it. I say go for it, if you are so inclined!

    Actually both pads were pulled apart, but one was very bad and not sticky...I won't be able to use it.

    That probably has to do with the temperature during shipping, something that they can't control at all.

    Home Depot has the metal lawn sign holders for .99 in our area, maybe in yours too.

    I actually saw a gal get one and tell her friend that she ordered a sign on VP....my mouth dropped. I picked up my chin, smiled, and grabbed one for my daughter's sign that's going to be arriving soon and didn't have the nerve to ask if she posted here on A to Z or if she was a teacher.....LOL VP is everywhere!

    I ordered my fifth and sixth orders yesterday...

    I have had some that were a bit more than 1.08 and 1.49- but only because I am super picky and wanted them to be "just so"- with advanced editing.

    I need a small banner--preferably free :). Does anyone have a link? I haven't seen one with free banners.

    Thanks!

    I'm mad at Vistaprint right now. They've started telling UPS to have the post office deliver my packages. They lost my most recent one! It says it was delivered but it wasn't, and the post office won't help because it says delivered, so they don't know where it is, and UPS won't help because they "delivered" it to the post office, and Vistaprint won't help until after August 2nd because that's the estimated date of delivery.
