Thrifty Thursday ~ Vista Print

I love personalized items! I think they are the best gifts to give (and receive) so I was so excited to learn that VistaPrint offers FREE personalized items. There is no just pay shipping. The promotions vary and after you place your first order they will e-mail you weekly updates for all the FREE items. I made my first order two weeks ago. Below are my items.

Note: I chose the 21 day shipping and it came the following week. The same thing happened for a friend of mine so don't waste money on faster shipping! Also, I bought Sharpie Markers in coordinating colors to write personal messages on each item.

10 Notecards- Folded
10 Notecards- Flat
1 Sticky Note Pad
I'm using these for lunch notes for my son.
250 Blog Business Cards
I paid extra to download my logo on the premium business card.
100 Standard Postcards
I paid extra to get envelopes with these postcards so I can use them as gift enclosures. I left the back blank so I can write a personal message. My first draft had the present design but "Thank You" instead of "Congratulations". I think either works because the image is so versatile. Get creative!
1 Notepad
I put my phone number and e-mail address at the bottom but cut it off in the picture for privacy.
My grand total for the above items was $21.07. Had I not upgraded the business cards and ordered the extra envelopes for the postcards I would have paid just $10 shipping!

Click here and then shop the "free products".

Richelle, I have used Vista Print and been very pleased with the products offered and quality.

I had not thought to use the post it pad for lunch box notes. I think that is a great idea!

As always, your tips are insightful and timely.
