Fall is here, which means the school year is in full force and teachers are working hard to impart their knowledge to students. World Teacher’s Day, also known as International Teacher’s Day, is held annually on October 5th.

Beginning in 1994, the celebration aims to raise awareness of the important role teachers play all over the world and commemorates them for their contributions to society. It also aims to mobilize support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will be met by teachers.

Here are some of our favorite ways to recognize our community’s teachers.

For the Coffee Lovers

Gift baskets are never a bad idea, especially when coffee is involved. Find a funky mug and drop the gift card to their favorite coffee spot in there along with a bag of chocolate covered coffee beans and a couple sticks of biscotti.

For Their Set of Bookworms

A classroom set of bookmarks will help teachers keep their students on the right page. Bookmarks aren’t just for English classes either. Not only can a bookmark be used as a practical placeholder for their books, its canvas can host educational information, such as commonly misspelled word, introducing Spanish vocabulary, multiplication tables, or converting one of the bookmark’s edges into a ruler.

For the Thoughtful Ones

Teachers give a lot of feedback. Make their letters stand out with their very own personalized notecards. Incorporate fun patterns, prints, and typography that’s sure to highlight their personality.

Customized teacher note cards is the perfect gift that can be used to recognize your community’s teachers.

For Those Who Gotta Catch ‘Em All!

If you’re looking to do something a little more fun and creative, try teacher trading cards. Add a photograph of the teacher with his or her name on one side. On the back, you can list their “stats,” such as the grade level taught, the years spent working in this profession, their hobbies, and even a fun fact about them. Teachers will get a kick out of this memento, and students will clamor to receive one.

For the Green Thumbs

Flowering and non-flowering plants are a great gift for the classroom. Orchids are ideal as a long lasting gift; once it finishes blooming, it does not die. Rather, it enters a resting period. With proper care, orchid owners can help their orchids bloom again and again. For those looking for a hardier plant, succulents are the perfect gift. Because they are notoriously low maintenance, they are perfect even for the person with a less-than-green thumb. Unique and practical, succulent arrangements come in all shapes and sizes.

Bonus Tip:
Add a hang tag with a heartfelt note such as “Thanks for helping me grow!” or “Teachers plant the seeds of knowledge that will grow forever!”

4 Creative Alternatives for Using Trading Cards

Trading Cards are an affordable and fun way to advertise or announce something, whether it’s for family and friends or co-workers and clients. Traditionally, they are used for sporting events, sports teams, and for promoting a business’s products and services. However, when you think outside the box there are a plethora of untapped uses for trading cards.

Educational Resources

Educational Trading Cards are a fun and engaging tool for students to learn and retain new vocabulary and information. Typically, you’ll want a vocabulary word and a picture to represent it on the front. On the back, you’ll find its definition as well as other information or facts to help the students remember it.  This is a great learning resource that crosses over all school subjects.

Invitations & Save-the-Dates

Looking for a non-traditional approach to a birthday invitation? Trading Cards are a great alternative, especially for children’s birthdays. Incorporate the birthday theme into the essential information. Valentine’s Day is another great holiday for trading cards. Get creative with hearts and Cupid to leave your child’s classmates with an adorable Valentine keepsake. Be sure your save-the-dates makes it up on the fridge by taking a creative approach. List your stats as a couple along with the date and location of your ceremony.

Custom Silk Trading Cards

Memorial Services

The death of a loved one is an event that everyone is likely to experience throughout our lifetime. A memento of the departed person is a wonderful way to keep that person’s memory in your thoughts. Our Trading Cards are the ideal size for such a memento. On the front, you can place the person’s name with your favorite photo of them; on the back, add his or her birthdate and death date as well as a meaningful quote or religious verse. This keepsake can easily fit into the program at the memorial service or funeral.

Theatre Performances

Keep your audience engaged long after the curtain falls with cast member Trading Cards. Share a headshot of a cast member along with their name, the character they’re playing, their theater background, and a fun fact about them. These are great to hand out tucked inside the playbill.

The Truth About Mommy Cards: Why Every Parent Needs One

Business Cards and Trading Cards are great for Mommy Cards. These cards are important and each parent should have some on hand.

A couple weeks ago, my six-year-old came home from school and said there was a new girl in her class. She asked if it would be ok to play with her on the weekend. So the next day, I sent a post-it note to school with her with my phone number on it. It felt […]

A couple weeks ago, my six-year-old came home from school and said there was a new girl in her class. She asked if it would be ok to play with her on the weekend. So the next day, I sent a post-it note to school with her with my phone number on it. It felt very cheesy.

Here I am, working for this great online print company, and I don’t have anything cute/professional-looking that contains my personal information. I changed that the next day. That’s when I thought about mommy cards, a creative way to use business cards.

Mommy Cards”(Mommy business cards, Mommy calling cards or trading cards) have been around for years; this isn’t a new concept by any means, but I can tell you that since I’ve had my own, I have gotten so much use out of them! I’ve set up play dates with school friends, handed out to other moms we meet at the park, given to acquaintances at church, given to other parents on their sports teams… the list really goes on and on. I truly feel that our social interaction with other parents and children has grown, due to the fact that I now have something to hand out. And, it’s been a great conversation starter!

Content for Your “Mommy Card?”

The first thing is to think about is how you are going to use the card. Where do you see yourself giving it out? What information do you want these people to have about you? If you are going to be handing it out to strangers you meet at the park, maybe you leave off your home address and just put your phone number and email address.

If the card is going to people you feel more comfortable with, maybe you include your Facebook or Twitter handle. If you want the card to send with your child to sleepovers and other events where you won’t be present, maybe you put your child’s medical information on it – especially if they have food allergies or special needs.

How Do You Design a “Mommy Card?”

Some “Mommy Cards” are kept very simple with just a couple lines of information while others include photos of you &/or your child. Some cards express the personality of the parent while others show off the fun nature of the child. This can be done by showing their favorite sports, favorite colors, a photo of them doing their favorite activities; I’ve even seen many cards with family photos too.

Some "Mommy Cards” are kept very simple with just a couple lines of information while others include photos of you &/or your child. Some cards express the personality of the parent while others show off the fun nature of the child.

I would recommend keeping the card small: Business cards or trading card sizes are best. You can keep it very simple, or you can have some fun with it by adding Spot UV, Foil or rounding the corners.
