Classroom Reward Cards

I have been receiving a lot of emails lately asking how I created the rewards cards I posted about on The Nest Effect back in March. {See the original post with all of the details of how I use the cards, here.} Instead of responding to each incoming email, I'll just post about it and give you the links you need to create your own.




I've created the reward cards through VistaPrint. Under the Business menu there's a link for Loyalty Cards. These are not business cards. Creating the cards through the Loyalty Card option is how you get the boxes printed on the card.

For punching the cards, I have a star shaped handheld hole punch.




All of my templates are available below. You can click on them and be taken to VistaPrint where you can have them made as is, or change the text.





Now this card is a business card. No punching needed. This one just gets handed out to students when I feel necessary.


If you're new to VistaPrint, here are some things to know.
  • There are always free products available. Often business cards, pens, stamps, and car door magnets are free.
  • If you sign up for VistaPrint and select to receive their email newsletter, you'll get offers weekly for even more free products. At the time that I created my rewards cards, they were free through an email. I noticed that the email offers are better if you sign up for an account and not just for their newsletter. Once you complete your first order, the offers come a few times a week. {Click here to view the most recent offer email I received. The pricing of deals for this email expires on July 2.}
  • While products are free, you do have to pay shipping.
  • The most recent email I received (which was actually yesterday) has a deal to get 50% off loyalty cards. You can get 250 of one design for $9.99. {Click here to use the deal.}
  • Your VistaPrint creations are kept in a portfolio in your account. This makes it so easy to reorder or change wording later on. This is also how you can share your creations with others.
  • If you click through multiple emails with different deals, it can change the pricing for the items in your cart. Same goes with clicking through links on affiliate websites such as Shop At Home, Retail Me Not, etc. 
  • Sometimes changing "advanced options" on items will increase the price.
I'll be uploading my other VistaPrint creations soon. For more ideas, join the VistaPrint Ideas for Teachers Facebook group. {I have no affiliation, just have joined myself and love the ideas other teachers have posted. They often post links to deals, too!}

  2. Hey :) I clicked on the link for the discount, but it is not coming up. Do you know of another way to get them at the discount price or have a discount code?
