Just wondering if anyone here has ordered from this site (I tried searching/looking but haven't seen anything about this particular site yet...) Save the Date Wedding Magnets - Free Shipping - Photo Magnets - Custom Save the Date Magnet

 

We need to get our STDs out and are surprised at how time consuming it has been to find a "beachy" design that is also clean and sharp. You can order a sample for $3 off of this site but it would take 10 days to get here and we need to get this ball rolling!

 

This is the design we're looking at:

I was also wondering if this is the typical material used for these types of magnets:

Description: This magnet is printed on glossy paper and attached to a magnetic backing. No assembly required. (2 X 3.5")
150 magnets = $123

my friend used this site for her STDs. they turned out nice, however hers were larger than 2x3.5... which is basically a business card size. Hers were more the size of a note card.

 

 

you could always check out vista print. we wanted to do magnets as well, but in the end decided it wasn't worth the money.

Hi JaimieLynn-

I made a STD magnet from vistaprint. I created one with a picture of our feet in the sand that I had from when he proposed. I used the large size and I really like the way that it turned out. We have gotten nothing but compliments. Here is a screenshot of it because for some reason the link doesn't work.

Hope that helps in your decision. I'm also a Memorial day weekend 2009 bride!

Uhhhm, yeah that's kinda weird that they turned out to be the size of a note card rather than a business card... I'm thinking most people don't have a ton of room on their fridges for my dinky little STD wink.gif

I definitely checked out VistaPrint as well as Magnet Street. However, I couldn't find a place that would let me customize it without a surcharge of around $75 (that's almost the amount for the entire order!).

Yamille, did you have to pay extra to create your own??

This is the pic that we would love to use if we could customize our own...

I used vistaprint for our STD magnets. They are business card size, but they have larger ones too. I believe they are less expensive.

You can absolutely create your own for only $4.99 to upload your own photo. I''m certain of that becuase I think I only paid something like $70 for the entire order and I had a few other shipping costs on there for some of their "free" stuff. I want to say that the large size comes to like $1 per magnet. I thought that was inexpensive. I never checked the prices on that other website that you mentioned though. I'm also guessing that if you need more than 50 you save money- that's usually how these things work.

Thanks Yamille! It's not really about the price, since the majority of the sites I've been to only fluctuate within $25 (at the most) for 150 magnets. I'd rather get the best quality, and of course if I can upload my own photo that is great! I don't know how I missed this on VistaPrint! I spent hours researching this last night... hmmm, off to go check this out on VP. Thanks again, I will let you know if I need help figuring this out wink.gif

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
