save the date magnets

I thought this was a cute idea! I've seen magnets as favors, but my coworker is sending out STD (haha, see previous topic entitled STDs) magnets with their picture on it. So I just wanted to share that with you gals. =)

We did that too and were really happy with them... We photoshopped one of our favorite pictures w/ text for the date and our website and then just used a magnet site on the internet www.vistaprint.com (with shipping it was ~$40 for 100. They ususally do small business magnets). It was super easy! We've gotten so many compliments on these. Out of town friends say they feel like they see us all the time because it's like they have breakfast with us on the fridge every morning. ;)

Yes, we have gotten a few of those and they really are handy because we see them everyday on our fridge and it reminds us of when their weddings are, especially for DH because he never remembers any dates!

Thanks Tahoegirl for the suggestion. We had been looking into getting magnets, and with the cost of invitiations to account for, we werent really sure we wanted to get them. But we photoshopped one of our'e favorite pics onto a magnet, and used oure wedding colors...we ordered them and they will be coming in on Tuesday....I'm very excited

We did it ourselves on our photo color printer. You can steal a template for design ideas from any save the date card/magnet. Coscto or Sam's Club online sells the printable (Avery brand) magnet sheets that fit in a standard color printer. It came out great and it came to be around $.25 a magnet for the sheets (we used on standard 8x11 magnet sheet, with 8 magnets a sheet) and the cost of ink.

It looks like there's a discount for the Vista Print ones. 100 for $6.99. That's probably where I'll go!

I see red lines and new prices on this page. It could be very possible that I'm getting something wrong. If so, let me know because I don't have time to call them today. Work is busy... well too busy to call, not to check the forum! :)

UPDATE: Okay this is really weird. The really cheap prices were on my work computer. I clicked the same link above on my FI's computer and it was $26 or something. I check it now on my home computer, and it's totally different priced. I'm so confused...
