I am getting ready to do my save the dates and need some help! We want to do save the date magnets with a picture. Our engagement pictures are in 3 weeks and we want to send the save the dates out right after. I wanted to know where everyone purchased their save the date magnets. We aren’t looking to spend very much money on these so as cheap as possible! Thanks in advance for your advice!

We used magntestreet.com and they were awesome, good quality, quick turn around and they even have pre-lined envelopes.

I agree with prettylizy. I ordered by STD’s from magnetstreet.com as well. They were inexpensive, good quality and I received them a week after placing the order. We also used three of our engagement pics on the magnets. They turned out great!

I’ve been in the process of researching STD magnets. We are custom designing so will be fully uploading our own design. The prices for custom design seem to be different than if you just choose their design. I looked into magnetstreet, vistaprint, 123print, savethedatemagnet.com, and zazzle. If you are going for a larger magnet size (versus business card size) it looks like Vistaprint is the cheapest (although their magnets are a little on the larger size… 5.5×4.3… compared to the other companies).

I went an odd route and made mine myself.
I used a glossy photo paper and my home printer to print out mine then I used the magnet cartridge for my xyron and ran the printed pages thru it. I will tell you it was a PAIN to trim all of the magnets! But then I used photo-corners to attach the magnets to a card that I made from stardream opal paper (cover weight) then I used the xyron again to make sticker label seals for the card. The way that I did the card it was self mailing so I didn’t have to do envelopes. Then I shipped the whole thing off.
My total cost was about $80 for 200.
I did already have the xyron.
I got the Stardream paper from Amazon and I was able to get 2 cards per page
I also was printing 10 magnets per page
And for each xyron cartridge (amazon again) I got 100 photomagnets.
Would I do it again – Yes. Even tho it took FOREVER doing 200 photomagnets in a design that I liked was almost $300. Not to mention postage and envelopes.
