    Thanks!!! The reason I am doing the Frequent shopper is that I have a ton of ladies at my church that "always want to buy...." but then they feel bad if they can only buy from one of the sister's shows...so I encouraged them to buy a little at each show...then they were like "yeah but then we can't get the free item for spending $60" so I decided to give them an extra incentive to buy @ each show....
    we'll see how that works out!

    I love the frequent buyer cards. I ordered those postcards and put a recipe on front and my info on back. I have the labels too- I order labels from them all the time. It makes putting your info on everything so much easier.

    I'm going to havve to steal your bus card outlet idea. I have just been printing 4 out on a piece of paper (got off here from somebody). Probably lot cheaper to gett 250 free ($5 shipping) instead of printing all myself. Thanks for the great ideas!

    Vista is the current version of the Windows operating system.

    VistaPrint is an online company that prints marketing materials. they send out frequent emails to customers with free offers. And they're great for business cards and things if you don't care whether the PC logo or tag line are on them (those are both copyrighted, and it's against policy to have a non-Merrill printer produce things with them).

    There's a link in my signature if you want to check them out - I'll get a referral credit. :)

    No. Vista and VistaPrint are two completely different things.

    Vista Print is an online printing company.

    Vista is an operating system by Microsoft.

    Ok...WOW...you guys are VERY literal, huh?

    Let's try this again...lol...

    How does Vista PRINT work? For instance, if I wanted to make those cards for the outlet...where would I go? Post Cards? I dont know much about it and am trying to learn.

    Sorry for the confusion! :angel:

    I just received my VISTA PRINT order yesterday for a "small" magnet to put on the back of my car advertising my contact info and website. It's the size of a sheet of paper; "small" and when I ordered it "FREE"!! I'm loving VISTA PRINT! I also ordered matching business cards and my "baseball hat" is on its way... great for when I'm heading outside with my DDs and for our family vacation this summer. I'll be a walking advertisement! I'm having my website put on the back of the hat so even if people don't want to ask me, they'll see my website.

  20. Love the designs! Did you find those templates on vista print or did you upload them? Or how can you change a color of the design?

    Thanks!

    Change the colors by going to "advanced editing". There will be a place to select a new color scheme.

    Is that chef's hat your own logo? I can't see it on the vista print website.

  25. It took me a while to find it too - oh so cute! It's only in the Postcards and address labels section. You can upload 4 in a row picture if you go into advance editing and add image. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for all the help I got earlier - I'm sooo addicted now!

    I think VistaPrint changes the designs that are available on different days. The good news is that once you have an item made with a design, you can still reorder it, or copy it within your portfolio and then modify the copy.

    Oh- and most of the cool designs (for business cards, at least) are premium designs.

    I am sorry for not being able to respond...I was out and about...
    The chef hat design is availabe on the postcards and return address labels and you are able to chang the color scheme to several choices that they give you.
    Also...I just uploaded Joy's (Tasty Tidbits) HWC postcard...SUPER CUTE!!! I am going to wait to order until tomorrow...because I want to order several things and don't have the time right now to get it all together.
    I LOVE VISTAPRINT!!!! :sing:

    I like the idea of Vista Print but I've never been happy with the free items and then I feel like I can purchase PC authorized products for not much more...maybe vistaprint.ca is different? Or maybe i'm just not finding the deals!

    I did order some return address labels yesterday with the cute little apron and chef's hat.

    The items they have that are always free are not as nice as the premium versions. Use this link: Everything here is FREE! for free premium business cards. (And other stuff)

    I did that but it doesn't show up on the Vistaprint document I am creating. Will it show up at print time?

    You need to hold down the alt key while you type the 0174 on the number pad - not the numbers above the alphabet.
    There's also a button on the edit screen for inserting those special characters. It looks like an a with an accent: à.

    Does the premium service in VistaPrint offer postcards without the glossy finish? I don't care for that on ALL of my postcards.

    Thanks for all your help Ann. I've placed a couple of orders and signed up to receive their promotional emails so hopefully I can catch these deals. I especially like the postcards because I send lots of recognition postcards each week...and I like FREE!
