Totally Frenched Out

From the blogger formerly known as Samdebretagne

Wednesday, November 10, 2010


I just thought I'd share a website I came across a while back - it's called VistaPrint and they personalize basically anything personalize-able. Now they already have a ton of free items on their site that I'd been considering for a while, so when I got an email saying they were celebrating their 15th anniversary and had even more free items available, I decided to give it a go.

I'd been wanting to make a personalized calendar (one of the free items) for a while, so that was number one on my list. But then I got a bit carried away and ended up getting a whole slew of other things - personalized post-its for C, fancy address labels for myself, a surprise gift for a friend and a little something for our housewarming party: All for free - I just had to pay the shipping & handling (15€ to France).

I placed the order on a Wednesday and it arrived the following Tuesday - how's that for speedy? I'd been kind of hesitant about the quality of the items given that they were "free", but everything ended up being really nice, especially the calendar.

And since a lot of people asked about them during our housewarming party, I thought I'd share it here in case anyone else was interested. A lot of what they have to offer could make some really nice (and inexpensive) Christmas gifts, especially if their 15th anniversary special is still going on. They also have a lot of free business items (business cards, logos, bumper stickers, pens, etc), which could come in handy for someone starting up a new business.

Hey Sam, could you repost that link? It looks like it's a referral link (and I'm all for giving you referral points and other free stuff!), but it's not getting me to VistaPrint.

I've bought business cards through them many times, always been very happy with them! I'm planning to get some calendars made as Christmas presents.

Hi Rebecca,

I just tried the link and it sent me straight through to the website. Is anyone else having issues?

Works for me. It is a referral page but you just have to click Home.

Just wanted to say I'm so sorry we never made it to your party... we had a very last-minute opportunity to take off for a few days, without kids, to head south and visit Georges' sister, and everything else sort of fell by the wayside! Hope the party was wonderful (and that you'll want to invite us next time!)

I've just got my business cards from them (designed by my daughter)
Getting a third off the price was good and they were fast! ( All the way from the Nederlands to Wales!!)
