My VistaPrint/DIY projects so far!!

Recommended Posts

Hi! I haven't done much for posting since I signed up on BDW but have definitely been lurking for quite awhile and posting random questions! We are getting married in the Riviera Maya (Barcelo Maya Palace) on June 11, 2011 and a honeymoon in Punta Cana! We are soo excited!

 

I have gotten so many great ideas from everyone on here, so I thought I'd post what I have so far! I have started my free orders from VistaPrint and have a lot more DIY projects for my OOT bags to go! This is my first time posting pictures so I'll see how it goes...

The first picture is the random stuff I ordered from VistaPrint for my OOT bags. I have all different bags and hats for people. I find I am not a huge fan of the style of hat so I think I am going to stop ordering them. The second pic is our ceremony fans/favors... the other side says Riviera Maya, MX. I am hand painting them. The next thing is the welcome brochure going in the OOT bags. Our STDs were homemade before I even knew about Vistaprint, but they were nice. It's too bad I dont have a pic right now. Things I am working on are: trying to figure out what to do for invitations. I cannot figure out how to do passport/boarding pass invites. I have tried! Oh! I also ordered badge holders to make key card holders. I think those will be very useful. You may be able to see my business card luggage tags in the first photo.

I have a lot to do and I spend a lot of time evey day getting ideas from all of you! Thank you! I will post more as I do more.

Am I correct in understanding that when an email states "1 free tote", you have to submit several orders to get the number you want?  If so, do you pay seperate shipping for them all?  I just want to be clear on this as I may have to reach out to family/friends for assistance on these orders.

You are correct - you have to pay separate shipping each time you order more than one of a the same free item.  However, you should try and group mutilple different free items per order.  For example, (on a good sale day) you could order a free tote, free t-shirt, free postcards, free pen, and free notepad and just pay one shipping cost (likely around $8 for that many items).  You can put in multiple of those orders, but each one of them will be at $8 each.  In the end you will have a lot of stuff for the price, but the price will have snuck up on you!  If you need 10 bags, you are still looking at $80.

One thing to note is the length of time the sale is good for at the bottom of the email.  Today's email says the deals are good through Dec 25th.  I was interested in the free tote, but the t-shirts aren't free and neither are the note pads.  So I put the free tote into my shopping cart, but will wait to order until I get another email with free t-shit and such.  Happy shopping.

Everything looks great.  I love the welcome brochure.  I will definitely be doing that as well. 

 

I did the boarding pass STDs and everyone loved them.  Passport invites are next!!
