        VistaPrint is awesome! I just got my first shipment.... 100 postcards, 10 pens, 1 post-it note pad & a T-Shirt... all this for less than $40 (only paid for the pens and the t-shirt, the rest was free except for shipping).... I will definately use them for the rest of my projects - OOT bags, welcome newsletters, more postcards, business cards with a 2011 calendar on the back!!!

          OK - so I HAVE to share how I kind of "beat the system" with VistaPrint. I know it seems bad, but I got mostly everything for free. All of my OOT totes, shirts, hats, keychains and pens were FREE!

          So here's how it goes. I get an email with a list of things that are free. So I make one tote for free and put it in my shopping cart. I then open my email again, click on free shirt and make that shirt and add it to my shopping cart. Now that cart has two things and you can close the original one that only has 1 item in it. Next I go to the email again and click on free keychain - customize it, add to the shopping cart, close the previous screen. Then with a pen, hat - so on and so forth.....All of those things will end up being in your shopping cart for free. When you check out, the shipping will be anywhere from $4-$5 for ALL of that stuff. Pay for it and then close it all up and go to your email again and do it all over again. I got 25 totes, 40 hats, 40 t-shirts, 40 pens, 40 keychains and some other little things in between like post cards, etc....all for less than $200. You just can't beat that. Here's a pic of what I'm putting for my OOT Bags. I'm also adding bath salts for the rooms, welcome brochures, lanyards and some first aid things.

                  It's generally much quicker. Even around Christmas time we were able to get our items within two weeks, instead of the stated 21 days.

                    I chose slow shipping (21 days), and the items were at my doorstep 12 days later!!

                    PS. I tried to do Lexi's cheat, but couldn't get it to work, however, I do know that you can put items in your cart, click on another link that gives you 50% off, free items, etc and it will update all the items in your cart. I ended up getting 21 personalized totebags (20 heavily discounted + 1 free) for $79 (which works out to $3.80 each) .... an amazing deal compared to other some other sites!!

                      The cheat totally works but I just can't seem to explain it right - the simplest way to explain it is that you're doing 20 seperate orders and paying 20 seperate times. You fill your cart with 1 of each free item, pay and complete the order. Then you go back into your email and do it all over again to order 1 of each. I got 5 things for $4.41 just last Friday. A shirt, hat, tote, pen and keychain. I then did that exact thing 5 times over and for $22 total I got 5 totes, 5 shirts, 5 hats, 5 pens and 5 keychains.

                      Does this help at all?
