Have your child write the teacher's name on plain white paper with a black marker. Size of name does not matter...you can resize in Vistaprint if needed. Your child can write the school name and a complete colorful design if you choose!!
Step 2: Scan the page into a JPEG format. All scanners are different, so I'm not showing the specific details of this step. My scanner has the options to send the image wirelessly to a computer or scan to a memory card or email the image. Any of these options will work fine!
Step 3: Go to Vistaprint.com and begin designing the notepad! Select Notepad and then Browse Our Designs and then Get Started.
Step 4: For this example, I'll be using design number 1887826. I changed the color to blue by clicking the blue dot:
Step 5: Click Image, then My Computer and select your scanned image:
Step 6: Drag the image onto the notepad and cover up the Full Name text that is the default:
Step 7: Click the blue dots and drag your mouse to adjust the size of the image to your desired size. At this point, you may choose to be done with the notepad! Click Preview or Next to continue to checkout. Optional steps to add more images follow.
To add additional images such as the desk, you can use VistaPrint's image library!
Click Add Images then Image Library then type in keywords such as teacher or books or whatever you want!
Click on the image you want to use, then Add Selected Image.
Once again, just drag the image onto the notepad!
When your design is complete, you can Preview it, then click Next to add to your cart and check out. I guarantee the teacher will love it!!!! It's personal because it's your child's handwriting, it's useful, and it's sooooo cute;)
