    I think it looks FANTASTIC!!!! I love the color coordination, the pic. you chose and the catchphrase... Only thing I would add is the date of the first day of school (like in movie trailers i.e. 9.3.08). I think that would add mystique.

    I love it!! I was looking at the post cards today. Wish they had one with a bee. I'm thinking of the frog one if I can't find a bee (looked at over 30 pages of choices...)

    Czacza, they have a few with bees but they aren't great. There is one with a little girl dressed in a bee costume and a drawing of a bee with flowers. Whn you find a postcard you like, click on the add image icon. Then click on search our image library. Put bee in the search box. it comes up with 21 of them but most are of birds. It is kind of strange. Hope this helps!

    When you got to vistaprint and create a postcard, you can add images from their library.
    First click on postcard use their design. this will bring you to a page where you can choose a style (Education, transportation, etc) on the far right hand side there is box that has some options. One of which says "start with a blank template"
    Click on that
    A new page opens up. Here click on the icon right above the postcard design that says "add image"
    A small box will pop up.
    Click on "search our image library". A different box will pop up
    Here type in "bee". Some pictures will pop up. Choose the one you like and it will pop open a new page.
    Choose the one you like ( I like one on the third page). click on it and then click on ok. It will be added to your postcard. You can make it bigger and smaller if you want to.

    Does that make any more sense?

    Thanks- I'll try it later today and post my results here!!;)

    OK- I did it...SOOOOOOO cute. I put the bee pic you suggested on an existing postcard template that had some graphic flowers on it with the greeting:
    'I'm buzzing with excitement about our year together in 2-G'! I chose a backside template where I wrote a short note about hoping students are enjoying their summer and encouraging them to check our class web page for back to school info, supply list, etc. Thanks so much for your help!

    You are welcome. Glad it worked. It sounded really complicated when writing it but I knew you could handle it. :) Sounds like you made a cute one!

    I like it - Very creative!!!! :) I would make the words in the bottom left a little larger or bold- but that is just me.

    OK- another postcard question- Does anyone know if the 'oversized' post cards require regular (41 cents ? I don't even know what postage is) or post card postage (cheaper than regular postage)...?

    I really like the postcard you've designed. How will you be using it in the classroom?

    Found my own answer:
    First-Class Mail® Postcards ($0.27 each)
    Maximum size: 6 inches long by 4-1/4 inches high
    First-Class Mail® Large Postcards ($0.42 each)
    More than: 6 inches long by 4-1/4 inches high


    The oversized postcards are going to cost 42 cents each- I'm going to redesign mine on the regular sized postcards...

    Completely adorable... and perfect for 4th grade - not cartoony where the more "mature" kids will find it condescending (even if they don't know that word), but still a way to appeal to the kids that are young enough to get a kick out of getting "real" mail addressed to them.
