In celebration of their 10th birthday, Vista Print is offering 10 different products absolutely FREE.  You can order 1 of each or just the ones you want.  You’ll have to pay shipping but in the end it still makes for an awesome deal!   Something else that makes this awesome… they are offering FREE photo uploads too.  That means you can make some great gifts!

What can you get??

  • Free Tote Bag
  • Free Business Cards
  • Free Return Address Labels
  • Free Rubber Stamp
  • Free Sticky Notes
  • Free Photo Wall Calendars
  • Free Photo Flip Book
  • Free Mug
  • Free Photo Notebook
  • Free Mouse Pad

There are too many favorites here to pick, but what I’m working on is a fun Grandma Christmas basket.  Mug, Calendar, Mousepad, Flip Book and Tote bag all with fun Grandma sayings and pictures!

This deal ends Friday 7/23 so don’t delay too long.  I’m off to start building our gifts…

    • 3monkeysmom

      How much is S&H? And is it one S&H fee for ALL the items you put in your basket or do they charge a seperate handling fee for each item? Sorry for all the questions but I didn't want to go through the whole process of filling out all my info only to find out the S&H is more than I want to pay :-)

      • ashley

        The shipping is five dollars for the calendar

        • 3monkeysmom

          I'm too cheap I guess, but I can get a calendar at the Dollar Tree. I know these are probably cuter b/c you can upload your pics but I can just look across the room if I want to see somebody :-)

          • dharvn

            would you give a calender from the dollar tree as a gift? with vistaprint's calender you can upload more than 1 pic for each month and the cover. do a calender of your kids and give it as a gift to their father or grandparents.

            • 3monkeysmom

              It would depend on the intended recipient :-)
              As for the Vistaprint calendar, it's not something I would want to receive so it's really not something I would want to give. Sorry…just not sentimental like that :-)

    • ashley

      It is charging me the upload fee…How do I get around it?

      • Laura

        Complete the photo book first, and then use those photos in the other project to avoid the upload fee

    • elizabeth

      I had some of their free business cards made for my 'mom' contact information, it's come in very handy when meeting other moms at the park, school, etc. Kinda nerdy, but better than scribbling a cell number on a mcdonalds napkin!

    • Theshugsmom

      Can't seem to get the page to load and going directly to the site I don't see any 10th anniversary. I've used them in the past and the business cards were very nice and the checks were very affordable. Will keep trying

    • The link doesn't take me to Vista print, it takes me to My Gift Resources, and asks for my email address to get a “free iPhone”. Anyone else?

    • Graceandfaith37

      But is there ONE shipping amount, or a S&H fee for each of the 10 items?

      • Kristin

        I got the return address labels, stamp, pen, business cards and my shipping was $9.74 (i think)..

        • ashley

          I got a desk calendar, wall calendar, 100 postcards, 3 pens, and stamp and the shipping was 10.85.

          I think that's awesome for all these items!!!! I would have paid more for just the items at a local store. They are all personalized with words and/or personal photos!!! I can' wait to get them in the mail!

    • Sherrie

      Having trouble logging on. Is it possible they have reached their limit for freebies?

    • kristin

      LOVE this company! I order all invites from here- most reasonable I have found! Plus they always send you a coupon for more stuff at great deals!

    • Ruth

      I love this company & have ordered from them for years! What a great deal. I ordered business cards, sticky notes, a mug, mousepad, return address labels, and a stamp, and my shipping was $13.07.

    • Amysbrock

      I can't get the website to come up. Something with Javascript on my computer, but I'm not exactly sure have to resolve that. Ugh! My husband could use some more business cards for his garage. :(

    • LuvthisStuff

      I order Free stuff all the time for my business

    • Mlavender82

      Thanks for this great deal! I ordered a customized photo book for my son's Nana who lives out of town and it only cost (shipping) $6.16!!! What an awesome gift for just a few bucks. Plus I loved that I could customize the photos and captions. Thanks again!

    • 05jacksmom

      Here's a gift idea, get a mug with the birthday cake and personalize it. I got that plus 5 other items for $12.10 shipping! Thanks!

    • Kristen

      My mother in law is going through a hard time right now so i put together a care package together. Thx so much!!

    • Mrs Embee

      For $7.15 I took care of my mom's birthday gift, my little sister's Christmas gift and a tote bag for my daughter to take with her to daycare! Thanks for the link, Jenny!

    • Afhottie2007

      how do i get the site to pull up with the free product options?

    • munckin74

      I can't find the free mugs!!

    • Susanjf

      Thanks for this offer! I love Vista and I got a canvas tote, pen, sticky notepad and mousepad for just $6!! I usually use Vista for great priced gifts, but this time they are all for me. :)

    • Tadnkim

      Do they charge the full shipping price for each individual item or do they do they give you a combined shipping price if ordering multiple items? Thanks!

    • Lucy

      We always order business cards from VistaPrint, and they have been wonderful. They always have some free stuff to offer, but shipping is still expensive. I think if you get ALL of these items, you'll owe them about $30 in shipping, which is still not bad. I also know that if you pay for at least one item, shipping will go down, so you might try that. Just find something cheap to buy and see if your shipping will go down for the free items.

    • Ana Maria S.

      I just ordered a mug, a tote bag, a pen, a sticky note pad, & a rubber stamp for $7.55 total shipped! I am still pretty stocked up on mommy cards & address labels ;)

    • Amy

      Thank you!! I had made a tote bag for my SIL a few days ago and still had it in my cart. I just got it free with matching sticky notes, pen, and notebook to go inside! My shipping was less than $5.

    • mb's mom

      I just ordered a coffee mug and sticky note pad for my friends birthday, a tote bag with my company logo on it, a mousepad with a pic of my family for the office, a notebook with pics on the front for church, and “business” cards that I reworded to be cards for birthday gifts from my daughter! Had a great time doing it! Boy am I gonna miss theses summer days at home in a couple of weeks when I go back to work! Fun and frugal times on southernsavers.com! Thanks Jenny! (oh, all this for under $10 for shipping!!!)

      • mommyof4

        How do you get the free mug??

        • Whitneysparks

          I'm thinking the sale could be over. Not sure but I had a lot of things for FREE last night and this morning I got on and everything was a charge.

          • Tealscoupons

            Me too… I just called and they said that if I had the email they could honor it but since I used the link on SS they can't help me.

    • Freedomspradley1

      I ordered a rubber stamp (return address), mouse pad, tote bag, and photo flip book and the shipping was 7.67 (slowest option, 21 day processing).

    • artmommy222

      First I made a photo tote bag, and the shipping was about 5.50, then I added a photo calendar and sticky notes (the ones where you personalize little caracatures) and the shipping remained the same. So the total was 5.67 I think for the whole order. These will be good gifts for my mom. Some of the free things were not available to have a photo on them, like mugs.

    • SSheila

      I ordered the: address labels, address stamp, calendar, mouse pad, sticky notes, flip book

      I paid $13 total in shipping for all of that!!!

    • Theshugsmom

      Ordered everything but the calendar plus 25 free checks- business cards, labels, stamp, notebook, flip book, tote bag, mug, pen.. LOVE Vistaprint..

    • psyche

      For those asking about shipping costs, if you click on “details and pricing” next to the item you are interested in, you can get a shipping cost estimate.

    • Jemerson818611

      why is it charging me for the notebook sticky notes if i add a photo

    • Courtneyaaron2002


    • Brittney

      I got the free notebook, sticky note pad, pen, tote bag, small stamper, rubber stamp, mouse pad, and return address labels, along with 2 custom shirts for my dad's business and a customized notepad for less than 50 bucks, shipping included! Wow! btw: shipping was only 10.98 for all that. LOTS of Christmas gifts: DONE! :)

    • Palazesi

      LOVE this! Ordered the calendar, the tote, a pen, a return address stamp and a mouse pad for $12! I make my dad a calendar every year and usually pay more than this just for the photo calendar!

    • Abwood

      Had a blast with this! We got…tote bag, mouse pad, sticky pad, rubber stamp, notebook, address labels, flip book and business cards! Shipping was $19 not bad for some great Christmas gifts!

      • Tracy W

        I'm so glad you were able to get your items…..it would appear you are one of the few. I was really wanting the flip book, notebook and tote – so I'm jealous – and I had a cute mouse pad designed as a surprise for the hubby for back to school…. :0)

    • di

      i just did the return labels, stamp, sticky notes, pen, calendar (for next year) and mouse pad all for $15 s/h. I think that's great and I'll put it all together as one present for my dh! Yeah! Wish I could have seen the mug I looked everywhere!

    • Karen

      I probably would have saved some money on shipping, but I ended up ordering everything separate so I paid shipping on each thing. I ordered everything in a different sitting and didn't consider doing it all together. Oops. I still think I got a good deal on a calendar, post-its, mouse-pad, and return address labels.

      It was wanting to charge me like 6 dollars for a mug and tote bag. It was saying the blank side was free and the other side was the charge or something like that.

    • Kris

      I found the mug but it wasn't free. I did good though. I love pens and can't wait to get this one…

    • Lfleming67

      every time i click the link it says that the internet can not take me to the site. I have been trying for two days. anyone else having this problem. I have tried to go straight through google or just vistaprint.com and the same thing happens. Anyone else?? very frustrated.

    • Rhoadesaa

      Teachers–here's an idea for you: I have the business cards printed with a message thanking kiddos for behaving or doing what they're supposed to be doing. As I am walking around the room teaching, I discreetly slip one on their desk. Granted, I teach upper elementary and they are still easy to please, but this is an easy and cheap way to do it. I also have the sticky notes printed as hall passes. This way, all I have to do is write the kiddo's name, date, & time on it & send them on their way. Can't find the free notebook or mug, but did score on all the other things….I am gonna try again in a few…found a free keychain that I thought I'd make for our teenager's first house key…

    • Slynn427

      I just spent hours creating tons of projects and went to finish them and order them today and the deal is over. Anything with pictures is no longer free. That really stinks! Any suggestions? I thought it ended later today.

      • Tmosebach1

        I am with you…if it ends today, then the day is done at 11:59pm…this stinks, so I chose not to order from them as there were only just a couple of things free…not the ten…BOO on Vista Print!

    • Jrodger04

      I Hate Vista Print!!! I'm a sleep deprived mom of a toddler and infant. Gave up nap to finish projects. Went to check out and almost nothing was free anymore! I agree. BOO on VISTA PRINT!! I'm not so stingy that I mind spending a little money on something. In fact, I was going to order a second flip book and if I liked it, go back to their website in the future. Don't think I'll be visiting that site again.

    • Jenichthus

      my son's bday party is tomorrow, and i spent valuable time that i could've been cleaning and decorating creating a calendar as a present for my mil. that dadblasted thing is going to cost $20 b/c i didn't get it done earlier. so i'm not getting it. vistaprint's anniversary sucks. for future reference, is there any way to avoid such a scam?

    • Tracy W

      ditto to what many have said – wasted time on designing products and then all of a sudden they weren't free in my cart and it wasn't past the 7/23 “deadline”….while I know they were going to be free, I'm more upset and angry that I wasted time on designing, and clicking thru all the extra crap they make you view and that it'll be 21 days to arrive….usually have a decent experience with them but this time was crap and I felt scammed. Especially since there were items in my cart that started free and then all of a sudden weren't – so I ended up deleting 4 items that were personalized….BOO on Vista Print…they owe us an apology….

    • Mimi

      Made mouse pad, tote bag, sticky note pad, notebook, calendar, and flipbook with photos and also address labels and ink stamper and paid $19.00 in shipping…wirth it…then two days later went on and experienced what others faced with photos no longer available and some items no longer free….never saw free mug….am satisfied with what I am getting but agree should have 10 free items across the board until expiration date!

    • Jrodger04

      I was so upset about Vista Print, after I posted my below comment, I contacted them (I had filled out an “unsatisfied” survey when I placed my order) and asked them to give me the special for the two items I spent the most time on and the option to buy a second photo book for $7 as I had planned. They contacted me back and put the special in my account for me! I have to say, I am impressed and had hoped they would respond well, because I liked working on their actual site pretty well. I think in the future when such things occur, I will try and not only complain but ask for the action that I think is FAIR and that the company should take.

    • Gwen

      I just blogged about my idea for the FREE calendar on my blog. Be a Calendar Girl for your hubby!!

    • TheChapliegh

      Not sure if anyone is going to check this or not, seeing that Jenny has advertised above that the deal is over… BUT… it's not over as of today, July 28th. On Vista's website it stated, for me anyway, that the deal was over on the 30th. So, I was able to get 10 products for free: Mouse pad, Return address stamp, Return address labels, Tote, Sticky Notes, Flip photo book, Photo Wall Calendar, Pen, Business cards (which I used to say that “mommy caught you…. doing something honorable, considerate or extra sweet”), and I also got a business advertising magnet that goes on your car (but I am going to put it on our fridge for the babysitter to know emergency numbers). NOW, after reading the comments below on frustrations many have had, I was prepared & not caught off guard when the photo book was FREE while I was working on it, then once in my cart it suddenly became $9.99. I immediately called & explained my situation along with “blogger disappointment” with this frequent problem many were having. She was so kind & nice, and quickly was able to resolve the problem for me. All she did, she said, was remove some of the items from the cart, then she reloaded them (easy to do from your portfolio), and then it registered as “free”. I DID buy some extra items I could not pass up, for early Christmas presents, so it brought my entire order total to $54.60, of which shipping was $11.74. I also wanted to forewarn that I DID have search the site for the freebies, and never did find the mug or photo notebook, but I was needing to get onto other things & did not want to chance my luck by trying to switch out the manget thing for a photobook & end up losing a freebie somewhere in there somehow. What I did in order to find these items is click on the individual categories I was interested in, OR the column marked “FREE” in both the business & Home categories. Once the category opened up, usually the first item on the page had a price of “FREE”. I do hope this helps, and that you all are able to find the freebies you have been hoping for. :)
