We used the large magnets from Vistaprint (5.59″ x 4.33″). My Fiance wanted something big enough that it would be easy to read and so that people wouldn’t lose it. I wanted something that could have both a picture, text, and enough room that we could include the necessary info (website, ceremony and reception cities (they are in different states), date, our names).

My STD cards were about 5″ x 4″ – I don’t think there is such a thing that is too big or too small as long as it’s legible!

I don’t think there are any standard STD sizes, and as long as the font is a readable size for most, you should be good to go!  That being said, I think the standard RSVP card is typically 3.5×5 inches, which might be a good size if you’re looking for something on the small side.

Ours were 5×7. My biggest advice in terms of size is to try to find envelopes (if you’re using them) BEFORE you get too commited to a size and make sure there’s an envelope that works well with it.

@LadyCupcake:  That sounds cute!!! I don’t think there’s any rule about what size Save-The-Date Cards should be! Ours were generic 5×7 size, because I used Catprint and that was one of the cheaper sizes to print from them, and I got 5×7 envelopes from Paper Source for fairly cheap.

Do it!!

P.S. I saw super cheap paper “luggage” tags at Hobby Lobby recently! Definitely worth checking out!

Ours were a 5×7 size sent out as a postcard, but I have seen many different shapes and sizes for STD cards.
