Tried it Tuesday... creative use of business cards and printing services

So I have a chance to try out some Build A Sign services.  I took it and ran with it!  Yes I had a lot of fun!  The site is very user friendly.  The services are versatile.  I got exactly what I wanted, the way I wanted it!!

Aren't they cute?  I loved that I could use my clip art collection!!  The homework monster is a business card that I turned into a punch card for doing homework!  The pencil is a magnet that I am sending home for my students to hang their work on the fridge.  The first grade team is a magnet that lists our email addresses so that parents know who teaches what and how to contact us.  We are also color coordinated and I was able to change the font color to match our subject colors!

I love these!  The pencil is from my clip art collection.  Our students are scholars.  I love that my students will have a chance to show off work on their fridge.  

So I had to have a little fun too.  My family loves dragons, knights, castles, everything medieval so I got my boys a little something for their room.

They offer free shipping!  Their prices are reasonable.

You need to check out Build a Sign and have some fun too!!

  4. Hi Crystal,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
