You can build your own on Vistaprint for sure, including adding pictures.  I did this from a blank slate and just played around with fonts, colors and layout.

123 print printed out magnets and they turned out nicely. There’s a blank template available on that site as well. They shipped quickly, and shipping costs are included in the price you see.

I made my own STD magnets but I went all out DIY and made little wooden ones to go with our rustic/vintage whatever the heck it ends up actually being (lol) VT wedding πŸ™‚

@tcarril2:  This is them! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I found a log behind my mom’s barn garage, sliced it with a chop saw (with some help from my fave professor), dried the slices out, and then wood burned each one of them. I used Apex Magnets- these super small but super strong magnets I glued to the back with Elmer’s All-Purpose glue, and ta-da!!! πŸ™‚ I ended up making about 90 of them, though I only needed about 65-70, and hand delivered as many as I could. They’re about 2 to 3 inches wide, less than a centimeter thick- though no two are the same πŸ™‚ I’m in love with them!

I used Vistaprint for STD magnets. I found a free collage template on the Scrapbooks Etc website. Then I used Adobe Photoshop to add pictures to the template. I saved it as a pdf and uploaded it to the Vistaprint website.

@tcarril2:  Aw thank you! I’m an Art major so I literally can’t bring myself to pay for things I could easily create myself- and the best part of DIY is being so able to create exactly what you want! I saved a FORTUNE doing these! This coming weekend I’m making the invitations- yep, making from scratch 100 invitations- and I couldn’t be more excited! They will end up costing less than 10% what we would pay for something similar from a company or another artist. So worth the time put in!
