    We did magnets. I still have all the magnet save the dates on our fridge for any wedding in the past 3-4 years. I don’t save the paper ones after the wedding. I can always use a magnet on the fridge, but my fridge gets too cluttered with paper to keep those, too.

    Ours were paper as they were part of our letterpress suite. I considered attaching a magnet to the back but decided against it. Any of the invitees you would expet to display it – family, close friends etc – have still got in on their fridges I noticed.

    Magnets. We still have and use any magnet we’ve ever been sent. Anything paper that comes in the mail we are lucky to hang onto and not misplace leading up to the event, let alone after.

    I used to put the paper ones on my fridge and then throw them out, the first time they fell off. Now I just write the date on my calendar and recycle the paper ones. I’ll usually leave the magent ones on the fridge, if they’re photos of the couple.

    I did magnet ones.  People keep them on the fridge and see it everyday.

    I’m still undecided on this. I am designing our STDs and having them printed on glossy paper (they will be the size of a standard 6×4 photograph) but keep changing my mind on whether to attach a magnet to the back or not.

    We currently have 3 STDs on our fridge – one of those was printed onto a magnet (so the whole back is magnetic), another had a magnet strip attached to the back and the last was just a paper one. I’ve discovered that the one with just the magnet strip hasn’t really kept it’s shape well – the sides are starting to curl inwards. If I decide to add a magnet to the back, I’ll have to make sure it’s not smack bang in the middle (perhaps one on either side?) to avoid this problem with our own STDs.

    We did magnets. Our close friends and family still have them on their refrigerators and we got married over 2 years ago 🙂

    I hate having unncessary pieces of paper on the fridge because I always seem to catch the corner and knock them down. I would definitely put a magnet on the fridge though.

    I really like the magnet ones, but we decided to spend our budget differently. We just went with cute postcards. I’m ok with people jotting the date in their calendar and recycling the postcard, although I know a few family members kept them on their fridge for awhile (they were a cute pic of us).

    We did postcards.  Then again, I’m probably a bad person to offer an opinion, since I think I am the only person with a non-magnetic fridge. I have a bulletin board in my kitchen for important reminders, but magnets are of no use to me!

    We did magnets; got 100 printed by Vistaprint for $37.   We went to a party this  past weekend, and it made me smile to see the STD hanging on our friend’s refrigerator.

    I always keep magnets, even after the wedding is over! However, were just doing post cards. It will be cheaper to print and to mail.

    We got these (this isn’t us though, stock photo!) and I’ve seen them on the fridges of friends and family even after the wedding (including ours ). They’re definitely not the most economical choice, but we only needed 36 of them so it was an acceptable amount for us. Especially since my extended family lives on the other side of the country and had never met DH.

    I would say a magnet STD is much less likley to be forgotton or tossed out. I just went to visit my uncle in TX and he had our magnet STD on his fridge. Made my heart smile. They’re also less cluttery than paper on your fridge, less likley to be taking up space on the counter somewhere. Not to mention they’re useful.
