    We got magnets from VistaPrint, and we’ve gotten great feedback about them. With a groupon, I think we paid about $70 for 200 of them. They’re always offering great sales if you don’t want to DIY.

    I love the magnets!

    I couldn’t afford to do them myself, but I love it when other people do them. It’s so convenient. I keep it on my fridge and then when your invitation comes in I use it to hold that too.

    So, two things. We did magnets and people love them. I see them on their fridges all the time, and people always comment on them. That being said, I feel you with the postage issue. I had it easy because my office sends stuff out for you and takes care of figuring out the postage, then they just charge your paycheck. But, for what it’s worth, I would have done the magnets regardless because they were such a hit.

    ETA: We also used Vistaprint with a Groupon so it was super affordable.

    I liked having magnet save the dates. Magnets always go right on my fridge and it keeps the event on my radar. Otherwise the card ends up in a drawer or the garbage and I forget until I get the invitation.

    I’m doing bookmarks because I thought they were super cute, but I really do like the magnets.

    No. My fridge is stainless steel. It would not be used.

    Magnets don’t work on stainless steel, so I opted for postcards.

    I honestly would prefer a card becasue I use a bulletin board to keep track of invites that my finace and I get. My fridge isn’t magnetic anyway

    We did magnet save the date’s- not the whole thing, but it had two magnet’s attached to the card with a removable glue dot… Everyone loved them & they weren’t expensive to DIY & I was able to use regular stamps. I used the roll of adhesive magnet from Michaels & it was only $5 I think & very thin. I think it was a 12×24 roll & I still haven’t used it all…. 

    I posted our end result here: http://diy.weddingbee.com/topic/diy-magnet-sticker-stds

    I don’t care either way. It doesn’t mean I’d put them on the fridge..I only do that if I’m really close to the couple, anyway.

    While magnets are convienant.  I voted for “I couldn’t care less”, not because I wouldn’t put it on my fridge, but because I have magnets on my fridge already I can hang it with.  If you’re on a budget, put the money elsewhere.  No one will judge you for not having a magnet.  In fact, if you just do post cards you save even more money on postage!

    @lovelyduckie:  the liners were super easy! I ordered some liner samples a while back & got a cardboard backing for the liners inlcuded so they didn’t bend. It was the exact same shape so I just traced it over some heavier weight (bond) paper, stamped it up, & then cut them. I attached them to the enveleopes with double sided tape & it worked awesome! You could unfold one of your envelopes & trace over the front inside with the flag extended all the way to get a easy template…

    Mine did go all the way down into the envelope but were only on one-side (flap side)… 

    This is what my template looked like
