Does anyone have a pic of their classroom rules banner made on VP? I want to make one but can't seem to find the right design and or spacing on the banner. Please help.

I don't have a picture of my "rules" banner ... but if you click on this link, it will show you two other banners ("Welcome" and "Mission") that I made last year.

I love designing stuff, so if you need help with that, I'm here....

Vertical Banner

I didn't know you could get them made vertically! Last year was my first time ordering from VP and I only ordered a few basic things. I am so inspired. Your banner rocks!

I think that the magnifying glass is from my digi-stash.

I design in Photoshop & can start my design at the same dimensions for each kind of item (post cards, banners, etc.).

From what I've seen from others trying to create banners is that they get frustrated with creating in Word because the dimensions don't match up well.

LMK if you want me to come up with something for you... it's fun!

I would love your help! Here are my rules:

COMMUNITY RULES

•Respect your peers, yourself and your community.
•Remain in your seat.
•Raise your hand to be acknowledged.
•Be prepared for class.
•No bullying!
•Absolutely NO profanity!

My classroom colors are going to be zebra prints black and white, purple and black and turqoise and black. You don't have to use those colors but wanted to give you a starting point. I teach middle-school English Language Arts.

Thanks so much! I look forward to your design.

I can't seem to figure out how to simply add a picture within the message so I'm attaching mine. I just discovered on my last order that you can change the colors of their designs!

Your POLO rules are awesome! I think the acronym really helps them to remember the rules.

I love your banner. I want to create one, too, but I am still trying to figure out which 5 rules I want for my classroom. When I come up with them, would you mind helping me out? It would be the same design as yours.

BTW, I ordered the clip chart that you designed for me.

Thank you,

Krika

Sanrisa -

Just to be sure, you want the "small" (free) banner, correct? It's 30" x 48".

Do you want it vertical (portrait) or horizontal (landscape)?

I'm lovin' the zebra .... :-D

Krika -

I'm ALMOST sure that my class rule banner was created with VP artwork... you can probably do that one yourself. ;-)

I have just finished designing my classroom rules banner. I think it turned out really cute . I have not ordered it yet, though, so I don't know how to attach it here for you guys to see it.

You all can see that I have become addicted to vistaprint. I had to figure out how it worked and I think I did. But I'd better go to bed now - it is 2 in the morning.

I'll give it a try.









ETA: Krika, You can go to your order history and click on the preview of your banner. Then right click save as and you have saved it as a picture. That is what I did, anyway.

Yes, the small free banner is what I want and you can design it in whichever direction best suits your design.

I am so excited!!! Thanks for your help!

Feel free to revise the language or create an acronym. I really like the wording of Krika's banner. Also, I know that the use of "NO" is out of the norm as well. So...do what you like. I trust your judgement. Just remember it's middle-school (7th & 8th).

Love your banners and other signs in your detective themed room!
How did you make your grafitti/grunge banners ( math disguised as fun,etc.)really like them!

kay/5 to add a picture to vista
Old 06-24-2010, 06:43 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #17

If you want to add one of the vista graphics or your own:
1. Under the selected picture/design you are using to make the banner click Advanced editing.
2. At the top right above the picture/design there is a Import button next to the Text button. Click the Import.

3. This will appear. If you want to search their files do search image gallery. If you want to add one yourself you can click "browse" and download from your pictures. After you have downloaded pictures and want to use them again you just go to the "Use a previously uploaded file" after you click import. Hope this helps.

Artbex - THANKS!

I'm a scrapbooker. I used to use paper and ribbons and glue and stuff. Then I discovered digital scrapbooking - digital files that others have created (I'm too lazy to learn how to make my own) that look like paper and embellishments, etc. It's MUCH faster and not nearly the same mess. ;-)

Anyway, I've transferred those skills to making stuff for my room. If it can be printed at Costco (regular print sizes ... 5 x 7", etc.), then I can make it. The signs you saw are Costco's 12" x 18" prints, cut in half. So, I was able to create two signs for $2.99.

I use the same techniques to design stuff for VistaPrint. Then it's "free"! :-D
