My FI and I went to Michael's last night and got the supplies to make the STD holder (it's going to be a magnet, so it's kind of going to be folded like a portfolio with our contact information on one side, and the other side will have a little spot for the magnet itself :) I think we will be ordering the magnets this weekend and get 3-day delivery! I made one holder last night once I found the dimensions of the magnet, but want to make sure they actually fit before going crazy with the crafting. I'm excited :D

Is the magnet itself going to be a pic of you guys? How do you make the magnets... Just glue on pics over the magnet itself or do you have get the whole thing printed together professionally?

Yeah the magnet itself is the save the date. I did it through vistaprint! one half is a picture of us and the other side there is a starfish near the top, and the writing "Save the Date" big. And then under that our names and the date (January 2015) and destination (somewhere sunny and warm) and at the very bottom I put *formal invititation to follow* they turned out really really nice! Once I get them, which will hopefully be next week, I will try to take a picture and post it! The lame part is the quantities go up in twns until 50 and then it jumps to 100. We only really need like 60, but when you factor in shipping for doing two orders, it was cheaper to just get 100... lol it will be $90 plus $20 for 3 day express shipping.

That is a very cool idea. I need to hop onto the vistaprint bandwagon soon I think lol

 

For everybody looking to get post counts up, use the heck out of this thread. I'm pretty sure at least 1/3 of my posts are here lol

yeah :) I like the idea of a magnet because people can just stick them on the fridge without having to find a magnet to hold it ;) lol They have sooo many designs! and you also have the option to design your own however you want! Totally worth it.. I even called last night at 9pm because I couldn't find the dimensions anywhere and someone actually answered the phone! lol..I'm pretty sure they are Canadian based. I thought for sure it would be too late but she was super helpful!

I must admit...I still have one of m friends save the date magnet from 2 years ago on my fridge. It's an extra magnet and a picture to remember her all in one!
