10 Creative Ways to Use Free Custom Printables

One of my favorite online freebies are custom printable products. Tote bags, photo books, labels, business cards — they’re all available from VistaPrint for FREE on any given day.

You can also find amazing deals on albums through photo printing sites and daily deal offers. There are so many offers, I just can’t use them fast enough.

After all, one can only use so many tote bags. And, I don’t think I’ll ever get through all the return address labels the Humane Society sends me. But with a little creativity, free print products can become fabulous keepsakes, amazing gifts or simple tools for your everyday life.

Check out these 10 fun ways to use free custom products:
