It's that time of year! Graduation season is upon us and we're excited to offer our graduation party printables for the Class of 2019. Our banner, cupcake toppers, water bottle labels, advice cards, buffet labels and signs are perfect for high school or college grads-- even a middle school graduation! The traditional black, white and gold color scheme appeals to all ages and genders.

Think outside of the box when using the graduation printables. The water bottle labels can double as utensil/napkin wraps... the cupcake toppers can double as envelope seals for the invitations or favor stickers or tags. Having a full sized cake instead of cupcakes? Print the banner panels at a reduced size and create your own mini-banner cake topper!

So, how and where should you print the graduation decor?

Due to the large amount of ink and small details such as the striped background on the designs we highly recommend printing them at your local office supply store such as Staples, Office DepotFedEx/Kinkos or The UPS Store. Pricing can range between .65 and .99 per 8.5x11 inch sheet printed on their laser printers, but often you can also find discount codes to further lower the cost. There are a few options for how to get the files sent to the print center. The files can be uploaded to the online print and copy center for the business that you'll be using, you can save the files to a thumb drive or memory card and take in-store for printing, or some stores will even allow you to email the files to them (just call your store to get their email address for the print center). I highly recommend uploading the files to the online copy center via Staples or Office Depot website and you can often pick up your prints within 24 hours. This eliminates any waiting in store and allows you to view pricing for the various paper types.

Free Summer Camp Note Card Printable & Packing Tips for Overnight Camps

By Amanda Mackell
on July 01, 2017

Last year our 10 year old son was chosen by lottery to attend the week-long Camp North Woods in Maine. Although he'd  done plenty of day camps over the past 5 years, the overnight part was a whole new ball game and it was the longest that we'd ever been away from each other. There were no phone calls to parents, no texting or electronics (every kid needs a break from these!), so writing via old fashioned snail mail was encouraged. Like most 10 year old boys, getting him to write a letter home was not too appealing so I worked with him to design some camp stationery that he would actually use.

 We sent him with extra envelopes, a book of stamps, and a sheet of paper with addresses. In hindsight, I highly recommend pre-addressing and stamping at least some of the envelopes ahead of time. We also learned some other valuable overnight camp tips that I'll share at the bottom of this post.

The camp note cards measure 4x5.5 inches when folded and fit perfectly in an A2 sized envelope, which are pretty easy to find at office supply or craft stores. The files are formatted to be printed on standard 8.5x11 inch sized cardstock and can then be cut in half and folded. I highly recommend printing at Staples or Office Depot in-store using their laser printers. They'll print a sheet of cardstock for around .69 each, making each note card roughly .35 each. What makes these note cards great is that they can be used for any age and for summer camp or family camping trips. 

While the note card files are free, no commercial use without permission please. Download the free summer camp note card.

Overnight Summer Camp Tips

1. Let your child practice applying sunscreen BEFORE they get to camp. This particular camp did not allow spray sunscreen (we only use lotion sunscreen anyway), but teaching them to apply properly in advance will ensure that they are properly protected from sunburns while away.

2. Send them with a few pairs of GOOD socks. The moisture-wicking type that are made for hiking... you know, the ones that cost $10 a pair and can only be found at specialty stores? They're worth it to save your kids feet from blisters and sweat.

3. Include a quick-dry camp towel in addition to the regular towels. Depending on the weather, the typical beach towels can take a LONG time to dry and a camp towel is great for the shower. It's compact and dries quickly.  

4. Pack extra batteries for the flashlight. Just in case.

5. Place outfits for each day of summer camp in a gallon sized plastic baggie. There are also 2 gallon sized baggies if you need something bigger. Then your child can just grab their toiletries, towel, and the plastic baggie and head to the shower! The bags can later be used to store wet or dirty clothing if necessary.

6. Take flat-lay photos of what you're packing so when it comes time to pick up your child at camp you can go through their bags and see if anything is missing. In my experience it's inevitable that SOMETHING will be lost or left behind. I'd rather have it be a t-shirt or towel instead of an expensive flashlight or pair of shoes!

These are only a few tips that we found were the most useful. Our son had the best time at camp and learned so much. It was an experience of a lifetime and something that he'll never forget!

Free Download: 3.5" Holiday Gift Tag

By Amanda Mackell
on December 02, 2012

 

In past years I've found it difficult to locate larger sized tags to pin on homemade holiday goodies. The newest freebie, our 3.5" gift tags offer a solution to this problem. With a red and white color scheme, herringbone background and lots of fun fonts, these tags work great on large Mason jars, boxes, or bags. I've printed mine on cardstock and adhered to the jar, but print on sticker paper or tying the tags with twine would be nice as well. The white block on the tag leaves ample space for writing your name.   Download the tags in a PDF format here or by clicking on the image above.
