Get a Free LOAD512 Mousepad, Notebook, or Mug!

by Lain Ehmann on May 25, 2012

NOTE: As of 5/29, this offer is active again! Go order! ;)

So ignore the whole “Gift for Dad” thing and grab a little gift for yourself! You can get a free mousepad, coffee mug, or notebook — or get 50% off the purchase of a t-shirt, if you want to go in that direction. It’s up to you!

Here’s what you do:

Before you start, you need to save this image to your computer (click and drag on a Mac or right-click and save on a PC):

Now, ready to go?

1. Click on this image to get to Ink Garden:

2. Decide what product you want. I decided to go with a notebook because you can never have enough notebooks!

3. Click, “Build Your Own Design”  

4. Select “Notebook” again (This is a pain. But not too difficult):

5. Click “Build A Design”

6. Select the layout you want. I chose the full cover image in the lower right. Click on it.

7. Select the inner cover image. I chose the calendar because I thought it was cool but you can do whatever your little heart desires:

8. In the left-hand column, select “Add Image:”

9. A dialog box will open. Select the LOAD512 image you saved to your desktop and click “Select Photos to Upload.”

10. Click on the LOAD image and drag it to the front cover on the right side of your workspace:

11. You may want to use the scaling boxes on the outside of the image to reduce the size a bit, as the resolution of the original image isn’t the highest in the world. This will also leave room to add some text if you like (add text by clicking on the “Add Text” box above the front cover:

12. Click “next” and then you’ll be shown the inside of your notebook. If you selected a design, you can add additional photos and images. Click “Approve and Order” once it’s the way you like it. (You’ll have to do that twice because a pop-up box will appear asking you the same thing.)

13. Then you can select the quantity and tell them AGAIN that it’s the way you like it. Click “Add to Cart.”

14. The next screen is the Order Summary screen. You’ll add the code FREEFORDAD in the coupon field as indicated by the yellow arrow below to receive your free mug, notebook or mousepad. Then you’ll pay shipping only! The shipping for my notebook was $4.99. A little steep but not bad since I am not paying for the notebook itself. I think it’s $4.99 for the mousepad and $5.99 for the mug. If you want a t-shirt use the code ALLFORDAD. Not sure on shipping for the t-shirt but probably around the same!

Not sure how long the promo goes for, so if you’re interested you may want to order soon.

There you have it. I’ll let you know when mine arrives!

P.S. This coupon is good only for new customers.

    Thanks so much, Lain! I did end up ordering a notebook for my geocaching hubby for Father’s Day! I use my planner for notes and sketches, so this was a fun project to do for my hubby! Thanks for sharing!
