    Hello Everyone, hope your having a great day!

    My fiance and I are from Vancouver but are in Las Vegas right now looking at possible wedding sites etc. I want to get our picture at the Las Vegas sign with the both of us holding up our wedding date and some how put it on a magnet to send as a Save The Date. If anyone has any ideas on the best way to do this it would be much appricated.

      I did my magnets through word. You can buy the magnet paper at staples. It was really easy, i used an avery business card template so the magnets would be that size. than i just pasted the image into each business card sized square. printed them at home and cut them with an exacto knife and a ruler. You might want to look into using a company like vista print. they always have free deals so you might be able to get yours done by them for next to nothing. And it would save you the hassel of having to cut your magnets out. And you wouldnt have to use all the ink in your printer too.

        You can buy sheats magnet business ant staples and walmart. Then just use a business card templet in word or any other print program, avery has some online, or you could use vista print or something along that line.

          You can also upload your pic to vistaprint.com and have them print the magnets for you...

              Yup I'm gonna say what's already been said!! When I made baby photo announcements I actually just bought the magnet paper or whatever it's called from Wal*Mart and did them at home all by myself. Easy and cheap LOL!

                Is it that you want to know how to get the magnets, or get the picture with the sign and the dates?

                  That is a really cool idea. I had a friend the STD through Vistaprint and they have photo magnets as well.

                      This may or may not address the intent of your question, but many Vegas brides have engagement or TTD pictures done at the Neon Boneyard (The Boneyard) where, among other things, they have "retired" neon signs, including ones for Vegas wedding chapels. Most Vegas-based photographers I'm sure can help you with this if you want pro pictures, or you can try for a tour and snap a few on your own.
