Well, teachers, it’s time to store away your beach bag and pull out your school bag – it’s back-to-school! To celebrate, we’re sharing some ideas on how to use Vistaprint products in the classroom.
When it comes to postcards, if you can think it – you can make it. With two sizes, standard or oversized, you have enough room to really get inventive: You can, for instance, create missing or late homework cards for students to give to parents, or even whip up hall passes for use all year. Use postcards in the traditional fashion and mail them to families as parent/teacher conferences approach or to notify them of exciting school events. Extra tip: Order in bulk so you have enough for the whole year!
Like postcards, the possibilities are nearly endless for business cards, too. Create business cards for you to hand to parents at the start of year so they can always get in touch with you, or you can customize the business cards as student contact cards they can fill out on the first day. With their small size, business cards are even perfect as quick notes to parents when attached to students’ homework.
From customizable pens to notebooks and stamps, you’ll be fully equipped to take the year head on! Every teacher needs a “From the desk of” note pad, don’t they? You can also create matching notebooks for yourself and students – adding motivational messages on them is a great touch.
A Fresh Look
Welcome your students back with a new look to your classroom with unique posters and banners. Create posters to relate to your lesson plans or decorate for holiday parties throughout the year.
New at Vistaprint – kids’ T-shirts! Customize these T-shirts for field trips, holiday parties or incentive prizes throughout the year. Even create T-shirts for yourself and chaperones for out-of-school events.
These are just a few ways to use Vistaprint as a teacher. Do you have any tips you’d like to share? Tell us!
