Vistaprint has loads of new freebie offers this week. Remember, when you get it for FREE, you do have to pay shipping & handling, which starts from $3, depending on the number of items you order and the speed of shipping.
- 140 FREE Address Labels – We recently printed some “Property of ____” tags, to label the kids books and movies that they loan out. And, I’m thinking of ordering a set for teacher’s gifts, made up to say “Please make sure this stays in Morah ____’s room.” Click on the “Get Started” button under Holiday Return Address Labels (ignore the holiday part – they have tons of design options).
- 1 FREE pad of personalized sticky notes – I ordered these the last time and they are a fairly small pad – about 1/4 of the size of a normal stack.
- 250 FREE business cards – These have the Vistaprint logo printed on the back. If you want a “clean” card, you will need to upgrade to premium business cards, which start at $19.74 for 500.
- FREE personalized canvas bag – Oh, the possibilities are endless for this one: Personalized library bags for the kids, swim bags for the summer, teacher’s gifts, birthday gift bags – personalized either with the recipient’s name or with “Happy Birthday”, etc. etc. (Again, ignore the Halloween part – they have numerous other options.)
I just ordered a bunch of free personalized stationery items a few weeks ago and they came much faster than estimated. I, of course, picked the slowest shipping and I think I got them within 10 days. If you’ve never ordered from Vistaprint, be careful not to select any of the “additional offers” (unless you really want them) – as those can quickly increase your cost.
As an aside, I gotta say that I’m really not sure how Vistaprint stays in business with their give-it-all-away-for-free business model. But hey – I’m not complaining, since I’m slowly stocking up on all of our end-of-the-year teacher gifts!
