I actually designed my own STD magnets using Photoshop and had them printed through Staples online copy & print shop. I uploaded my design and ordered business card sized magnets. I was able to fit our names, date, location, and wedding website on the magnet and have room for a graphic. It worked out great.

You just select the "solid white" magnet, delete the fill in info and upload your design and voila! I ordered 40 magnets for $19.99 for our 70 guests.

I did this.  I ordered magnet paper online and designed the magnet in Microsoft Word.  I’ve gotten loads of compliments.

I would definitely recommend using the magnet sheets.  It saves you a step in the magnet making process.  I think we got 25 8.5" x 11" sheets for $25.  That made 100 Save-The-Date Cards.  When you feed them through the printer, only feed one sheet at a time.  I think our printer would have had trouble if we’d tried to print them all at once.

I also used a cricut paper cutter to cut the magnet sheets and had no problems with trying to cut the magnet paper.

Best of luck!

I’m thinking I am going to do mine through Vistaprint, they sure seem cheap enough and like they would come out well!

I second (or third) VistaPrint. I get my business cards from them, and agree that you get great deals if you sign up on their email list.  I plan on doing our STD’s through them as well, cuz we’re also doing magnets. Still not sure how we’re going to send them though!

I DIY’d my save-the-date magnets at home with the magnet sheets and our injet printer. Now I wish I’d gone MissCamera’s route – I struggled with my printer quite a bit and ultimately I paid more!
