Smarty Symbols Giveaway!

Have you heard the news!? The Bender Bunch is giving back every single day from now until Christmas Day! That's right...25 days of giveaways, offers, and prizes! So far I've given away a laminator, a Starbucks gift card, held a BOGOF day, and tomorrow, thanks to the generosity of Smarty Symbols, I'm giving away a personal Smarty Symbols yearly subscription! 

As special education teachers, we have to create visual schedules and communication boards for our students. Smarty Symbols makes this so easy to do! 

Smarty Symbols features over 19,000 high quality symbols to choose from...and they even take image requests! You can download unlimited images and save them to your own computer or even create visual materials directly on their website. Let me show you just how user-friendly Smarty Symbols is.

Simply go to the "Download Hub" and search the category you are looking for.

Click on the image you'd like and download. That easy! I love that you also have the option to choose PNG or JPEG and you can choose color or B & W for your image. This is a great feature if you are creating worksheets or don't have access to a colored printer.  

You can also create visuals right on their website by visiting the Printing Center. Choose from many pre-made templates or design a custom template.

Choose your template and simply drag & drop your images where you want them. Save your creation and print.  
Another awesome feature is the Activity Library! You can save yourself time by downloading tons of visual supports already created by other Smarty Symbols users in the Activity Library. 
And as you can see, new visuals are continuously being added! These were just added this week.

Another plus is that they offer both a personal and a commercial subscription!

This is a huge plus for those of us that sell resources on Teachers Pay Teachers! Boardmaker and Symbol Stix have very strict limitations about selling resources that use their symbols and are not near as user-friendly either! So if you're planning to create and sell resources on TpT, then the Smarty Symbols commercial subscription is most definitely the way to go! 

You can learn more about Smarty Symbols and purchase your subscription here. If you'd love to use Smarty Symbols to create visuals for your own personal use and for your classroom, I'm giving away one personal subscription to one of my readers (courtesy of Smarty Symbols)!  

Entering is super easy! Just pin the image below on Pinterest and leave your pin URL in the comments below along with your email so I can contact you if you're selected!

Be sure you follow my advent calendar every day through Christmas on my FB page for a new giveaway or offer announcement! Happy Holidays and good luck!

I LOVE reading your comments, and replying! But the only way you'll get my reply is if you are a blogger and have that set up on your Blogger account, or if you come back to your comment to see if I've replied,(which is unlikely to happen). So please leave your email when you comment so that I can be sure you get my response!
