if  you go to any office supply store  you can get adhesive magnets either in a business card size or in a roll.  They are easily trimmed and have a super sticky adhesive already on them!  I sent out business card save the dates and the magnest were perfect!  They are also thinner than the ones on a roll if that makes a difference.  Good luck!

I bought my save the date magnets from Vistaprint also.

We used "Glue Dots" from Michaels… they are just that tacky sticky stuff that is used to adhere credit cards and magnets to paper by professional companies… They look great and did not interact with the magnets. We just used 2 dots per magnet, so we only needed 1 package of 100…

One tip on how to use the glue dots— Position the dot (while still on the roll) where you want it on the magnet or card you are sticking it to… then RUB the back of the paper roll to give it pressure to stick to the other surface… then lift the roll (with the other dots) and ta-da!

Good luck!

we used 2 photocorners on each magnet.  I thought with 2 instead of 4 they are easier to pull off and people would notice they are supposed to. it actually went pretty fast once we figured out that it was easier to put the corners on the magnet, then stick them on the backing, rather than putting the corners on by themselves.  they held great.

Mikala – Thanks so much for posting this! I am doing magnets too and was planning on using rubber cement. Thanks for saving me the trouble! I think I’ll do the glue dots babagrlshell suggested.
