Vistaprint in the Classroom {Yes, Please!}

Have you ever used Vistaprint in your classroom?  A friend of mine turned me onto this website a few years ago and I am hooked!  I usually place my big orders during the summer when I have time to actually have coherent thoughts.  School will be out here soon so I am already thinking of what I need to order this summer!  They usually have several things offered for "free"... where you only have to pay the shipping charges.  I usually break my list up into chunks of 4-5 products in each order.  Here are a few of my favorites:
This is a vinyl poster that I hot glued to the wall.  I uploaded a pdf freebie from Technology Rocks Seriously
This is one of the rack cards that I customized.  I have one for each student.  All of their test scores, etc. are on the back.  I punch a hole in the top left corner and put them all on a ring clip thingy for easy flipping, etc.
Vistaprint calls these loyalty cards, but you can customize them any way you want.  I use them as incentive cards.  Kids can earn punches for lots of things... when they get all 10 punches, they can earn a reward... usually sitting at my desk for the day, extra computer time, a trip to the prize boxs, etc.  I went to Hobby Lobby and got 2 different hole punchers (star and heart) so that the kiddos couldn't punch out their own! ;) 
I have a whole FB album of Vistaprint creations... you can view the album HERE!  Also, did you know that there is a FB group specifically designed for teachers using Vistaprint....  you can find that group HERE
I hope that y'all are having a great weekend... talk to you soon! 


  1. I've used Vistaprint to make TONS of things for my classroom. It's just so cheap ($$ wise) and easy! I have the same flower hole punch. It's great for punch cards! :)
