Are you looking for personalised gifts for your family? We tried VistaPrint recently and found it to be a fuss-free way that allowed us to make meaningful, customised gifts very quickly.
What is VistaPrint?
VistaPrint is a Cimpress company that helps customise products. It started out helping small business owners create marketing products. It has since expanded its range of services and allows anyone to easily create their own custom products online and have the physical product shipped directly to them.
VistaPrint’s Range of Products
VistaPrint has a wide range of products which can all be customised according to your needs whether it’s for gifting, commercial use or your personal collection.
Products available include photobooks, cups, car decals and even tee-shirts.
Creating a Custom Calendar
One popular gift idea is to create a custom calendar. VistaPrint’s options include wall, desk, poster and magnetic calendars. Personally I like customised calendars as gifts, particularly for family. They are functional and also a chance to display favourite pictures of loved ones or pets.
We tried creating our own desk calendar on the VistaPrint website and found it a breeze to order and customise. There are many designs to choose from. Simply choose a design template to get started.
Th VistaPrint website has an inbuilt editor for calendars. Adding pictures was foolproof as I just had to drag and drop the pictures into the template given. Do ensure that before you add pictures, they are cropped in the right way otherwise faces can get cropped out automatically.
If you select a family portrait in landscape, for instance, do be prepared to have the sides cropped off if it is in a square format template.
The calendar creation process was straightforward and what was most attractive was the pricing had 50% off thanks to the Christmas sale. One customised desk calendar costs $8.
Shipping and Customer Service by VistaPrint
You can choose various shipping methods starting from $6.99. We could send an enquiry quite quickly to the customer service department and have our enquiries addressed very promptly as Customer Care is provided seven days a week.
Delivery was also conducted by international courier services which provided an accurate ETA. The product was shipped over from Australia.
Overall VistaPrint Review
VistaPrint provides an affordable online option to create customised one-off gifts for family and friends. We easily completed creating our customised calendar within 10 minutes. If you are not too particular about design and layout, VistaPrint offers fuss-free and quick options to get you started real quick.
I liked how the desk calendar was printed on quality paper. The images were clear and the colours were vibrant. The pictures did not come out pixelated and the colours were also kept close to the uploaded pictures – which was my preference.
Besides the calendars, there are a lot of other products and gift options available on VistaPrint’s website. Just browse through to see what catches your eye and sparks your imagination.
Take advantage of the ongoing Christmas sale and get your own printed calendar for only $8. Customise it and submit it for shipping before 15 December to ensure that you receive the package just in time for Christmas.
