It’s no secret that teachers love a good bargain and Vistaprint is one of my favourite places to shop for goodies for the classroom. I’ve made a few orders from them now so I thought now would be a great opportunity to share some of my favourite goodies with you!

5 ways to use Vistaprint in the classroom

My favourite purchase so far would have to be the stickers! I’ve ordered a set which I stick into the front cover of all of my books. This ensures that they make their way back to me when they are borrowed by others. I also ordered some personalised stickers to put on student work. My kids loved getting a special ‘Mrs Patch’ sticker on their work! All I did was look at the free templates available on the site and tried my best to come up with cute little sayings to match the pictures.

The postcards on Vistaprint are also very cool! I ordered a set of thank you cards which I send home to parent helpers after excursions and what not. I also ordered a sweet set that I use to write little notes home to parents or other teachers as well. I just love these!

Sometimes it’s tricky to personally talk to every parent after school, so I often use these little behaviour business cards to send a quick note home to parents. There’s not a lot of space to write on these so I just write a short sentence which acts as a prompt when the student takes it home to their parents.

I sent these cute little magnets home at the beginning of the year for students to display their work on their fridges. They were so popular!

Last but not least is my tote bag! I used this for almost 2 whole school years and it’s starting to get a bit faded now but has otherwise held up really well. I used this as my ‘school stuff’ bag with my planning documents and any resources I needed to bring back and forth from home to school. That way my handbag things were separate and it was just easier to manage. I wouldn’t hesitate to order another of these!

Most of the time I have been able to create what I’ve needed with the free templates on the website but occasionally I also design my own in Photoshop and upload those.
