The months seem to be flying by and it’s approaching that time of year again, the end of the school year! In a couple of months teacher appreciation gifts will be on everyone’s mind, I know I get tons of requests each year for creative ideas when it comes to giving teacher gifts. I mean they do teach your kids all year long and it only seems fair to give them a nice gift that they can actually use and is cute to boot! I have been a long time fan of personalized platters, but they can be a bit pricey when ordering custom platters online, especially if you have more than 1 child. Today i thought i would give you the lowdown on how to order your own platter without the middle man that ticking the price up on these. I have designed a few different teacher platter templates that you can use to upload to different companies and pay the wholesale price for these instead of the high retail price. Also, if you have Photoshop, Corel draw, or any other photo editing program you can add your teachers name to give it a personalized touch as well. I have the files in a .zip file that you will need to download and then upload to makit. You get 5 free platter templates in this download the two pictured above, plus the chevron platter in pink, grey, and lime.
