So I’m trying to get together our save the dates for our November 3rd wedding…my finace is in Afghanistan so its hard to get his opinion on stuff because we dont talk everyday. Im trying to design our save the dates on vistaprint….I have a tree with a red background and the tree has our initals, K+J, its really cute….the back has one of our engagement pictures with Save the date in red writing, the pic is black and white with some color in certain spots to highlight….Im using a close pin with a magnetic strip on it so people can hang it up on the fridge….so my real question is, is a two sided save the date a waste of money or should i just stick to a one side with our picture and infor on it??

If it is going to be a magnet, I think you should have all your information on one side. 🙂

I ordered some Save-The-Date Cards the other day from Vistaprint too. They are postcards with our picture on the front, “save the date”, our names and the date…the back I just chose to keep black and white and it has “save the date”, city/state, names, wedding website, and then room for addresses

Don’t waste your time not deciding over the save the dates. Choose a one sided save the dates, w/o a picture, then on your wedding invite, include a picture or two! 🙂

The picture of you two is what people are going to want on the fridge right? people are going to loose and forget about anything that they don’t see every single day. so I think having all the important information on one side is a good idea. They are not going to regularly look at what is on the back side. (just my thought)
Other thought, how are you mailing a clothes pin?

I would just do the one side, because I always stick mine on the fridge, and to be honest, never look at the back! In fact, I just got one this week and flipped it over to to see if there was anything there, but there wasn’t 🙂

If you really have you heart set on two-sided Save-the-Dates, I recommend CatPrint!
It was recommended by Mrs. Hyena, which she used for her invitations, and since they’re so reasonable I’m going to use them for bridal shower invitations for my friend’s shower!
I compared Vistaprint vs. CatPrint and CatPrint was consistantly cheaper for two-sided printing. (Also in general, lol.) Plus they don’t charge you for uploading your own design/photos like Vistaprint does.
What’s great about them is that you can order the exact number of invitations you need instead of set numbers of 50, 100, 200, ect. Also they have free proofs to give you an exact idea of what you will be getting. Plus if you need envelopes they have some reasonably priced ones you can add on to your order!
Hope this helps!

@lilkimmi703: I think if it’s going to be a magnet it should be one sided. I had a company make mine and they too are a magnet. Here is a picture. It is business card size, not ot big and not to small. The entire thing is a magnet with a picture and wording on the front.

I voted two-side before I read that it was a magnet…one sided would be best. Also, keep it clean and simple! 🙂
