    I don’t really understand what you are proposing.  Maybe a little clarification would help 🙂

    sounds interesting…. i’d check to be sure that it could be sent in the mail first. Try a sample first, for sure.

    I totally understand what you’re saying. I think that would be a great idea. =)

    Keep in mind it may cost more to send something like that because it weighs more. If you do it, make sure you send one to yourself first to make sure there are no problems.

    I get it.  You’d need to make sure it’s a strong magnet.  We got the ones from VP and they stick to the fridge, but can’t hold anything up, not even a receipt. 

    We sent magnets and postcards, and put them into a pocketfold, which we also made.  There are pictures on my blog that I never update: http://jlsimon56.livejournal.com/

    We did something similar for our stds, they were circular, with a magnet in between.  It looks great!  We didn’t send it like a postacard though, we put them in envelopes.  Also, we DID use really strong magnets and because of that REALLY strong glue – be careful tho, the first glue we tried was too brittle when it dried and as the stds went thru the machines at the post office the popped away from their magnet innards! Hope that helps!

    You can buy larger sizes of those magnets with a sticky side

    Why not take one…..stick a postcard to one side and glue a postcard to the other side

    So like an oreo….with a magnet in the middle. I think that would totally work

    I bought the magnets for the backing of my Save the Date at Staples:

    Business Card Magnets, 100/Pack

    I would see if these would work out for that.

    It sounds like a great idea, but you might just want to mail them in envelopes instead of mailing them as postcards, because the extra weight from the magnet will probably mean you are paying the extra postage anyway.  Then you woudn’t have to worry about them getting beat up or coming apart in transit!
