    Hi everyone,

    I originally thought I wanted STD boarding passes because they were so cute and creative, but I've decided to wait and send them as the invitation instead. I'm now looking into STD magnets. Has anyone bought or made STD magnets? If so, can you please share what company you purchased them through or how you went about making them youself. If you have any pics I would love to see them.

    Thanks in advance, Nancy.

      I used Fresh Impressions: Specializing in Custom Save the Date Magnets and Invitations - Beach Themed Save the Date Magnets. They have some really cute designs for destination/beach weddings and I liked that their magnets were bigger than the business card size that a lot of places offer. They did a wonderful job - I had my proof within 24 hours and I received my order exactly 1 week after I approved my proof and paid for my order; and that was with the ground shipping! I had never heard of them before (found them after doing a google search), but I would definitely order from them again.

        Hi we went through the same thing last week. We started doing boarding pass STD's and changed our minds to save them for the actual invites.

        We did STD magnets and postcards through VistaPrint. www.vistaprinta.ca

        I can't tell you how awesome they are for pricing. Once you sign up you'll start to get emails offering tonnes of free stuff. So far we have gotten 100 postcards and 50 magnets for free (plus each time you order they offer you more free stuff so I always get one of the free pens and customize it with our name and date on it for the OOT bags.) We also bought one set of 140 return address labels that we customized to make them beachy, and we have gotten three more sets of 140 for free! The only thing you pay for is shipping, so I try to bundle up on my orders so it's not a bunch of little fees.

          I made mine using blank business cards and self-adhesive business card magnets. I picked a beach background and put "Save the Week...Robby & Melissa are getting married. August 19-27, 2010" and our wedding website.

            lol I am having the same dilemma too! I have many save the date magnets on my fridge from friends who have gotten married, so I know that people use them but I LOVE the passport save the dates! It has so much information and links to your page and everything.... so hmmm....what to do?

              Magnets are a great idea, I end up putting everything on the fridge anyway, this just helps save space as it isn't a huge piece of paper that falls down every time you open the fridge!

                I made my own save the date image but still need to print them. I need to go to my parents and print them! I bought magnetic sheets from Hobby Lobby. I HOPE they will come out good! If not, i would have to go to vistaprint for my magnets.

                Here is my image.

                  Chantelle, do you still have to design your STD but use vistaprint for the printing only?

                      I am doing boarding pass STD's but I also am doing a magnet with our picture on it that will be mailed with the STD's. I am thinking that I will use vistaprint to print them.
