Vistaprint

I posted some of my purchases from Vistaprint last week when I was discussing behavior management.  I also use Vistaprint for many other things in my classroom.  I love it!  I have always had good luck with quality and getting things in a timely manner.  I always choose 21 day shipping because it is cheaper, but most of the time, my things come before that.  Here are some of my purchases from last year.
STAMPS

My students LOVE this one :)





ITEMS MADE FROM ADDRESS LABELS


I put this one on my student's shirts if they have an important paper in their backpack to sign. 


I put this on top of student work that needs to be worked on at home.


This one goes on all of my personal classroom books


ITEMS MADE FROM BUSINESS CARD MAGNETS
I send this home at the beginning of the year for parents to hang on their refrigerators.

I use these to write student's names on.  They are great for grouping, centers, ...

This also goes home at the beginning of the year for parents to hang their child's work up on the refrigerator.


ITEMS MADE FROM POSTCARDS
(I send these positive postcards in the mail throughout the school year.)




OTHER ITEMS

I put this on at the end of the day to discuss what we learned

Stickers - I stuck these to the front of their homework folders.

Brochures - MY FAVORITE Vistaprint item - GREAT QUALITY!!


Small Car Magnet - Stuck this to the white board when we sang this song

The birthday student was able to wear this shirt for the day.  Then I took it home and washed it for the next birthday.
I have ordered other things from Vistaprint and many of these items are ideas I found online or ideas that I recreated and made them work for my needs.  It's a lot of fun to create things and even more fun to get them in the mail :)  I can't wait to start putting in my orders for this coming school year!

Thanks for sharing your great ideas! I went to the vista print website and I was wondering what size rubber stamp did you get?

I like the label that says. . . Your child needs practice with this skill. Please work on this at home.

I just found your blog and am voting for it in the classroom blog contest. My blog is called Beginning Reading Help.

Great! I’ve been using VistaPrint when I worked as a graphic designer. We used to print banners and large format printing. Thanks for sharing this information.Fixed Computer
