    Good Morning Ladies!..

     

    So I am freaking out just a bit at the moment. :o(   I wanted to get our Save the Dates out at our One year mark... But we still haven't and haven't even had our pictures made yet because our plans keep falling through. Being in seperate states has been tough on that planning process, but we plan to get them done this weekend no matter what! 

     

    I was planning on putting our pictures on heavy cardstock with our Dates and info and placing a magnet on the back to create our own Save the Date magnets. However, I did a test print last week and it looked terrible. Possibly the issue was the test image I choose or because I used a laser printer.

     

    Since I'm sorta in a time crunch and I don't want to send out anything that looks tacky.. Where should I purchase Photo Save the Date magnets?.. Any options that have great deals, please let me know. :o)

     

    Thanks Ladies!

                  Maybe you could use your own envelopes and paper to make attachment cards and just buy the magnets from them? You could probably sell the magnets to another DIY queen!

                     Well I just noticed the Magnet places I like include the envelopes.. lol.. But maybe I can find another use for my pretty pearl ones. :o)  I have a feeling my FI is going to suggest us just go have the Save the Dates we planned printed at a local shop to save us money. But then again I don't know how much that will cost. Guess I will compare prices this weekend and if the online ones aren't much more than the printing fee's I will just order the ones online.

                     

                    Ugh.. I was doing soo well with my planning.. I can't believe I got behind. :o(

                      Lots of choices! Can't wait to see your finished product, whatever you choose! I'm sure you could sell or use the envelopes, if you end up buying. Hopefully the printing will be affordable and you'll be back in track before you know it. You're still okay as far as timeline goes, so don't stress too much, lady! :-)
