    Do you have a picture? Depending on the extent of the smudge might impact decisions.  You could always send the smudgy ones to people you don’t really like! 😉 (see the post about wedding confessional!!)

    If it’s truly a small defect, I’d go ahead and send them. For me at least, when the wedding was over and we were married and all our guests had celebrated with us, the tiny defects along the way didn’t matter one bit.

    Lets see a picture – Im not a total perfectionist, but there is a point where it might be too imperfect for me to want to send out…

    @chastetiltuesdayFB:  Contact the etsy seller and also put a complaint in with Paypal. 

    My magnets did the same thing, I ordered through Vistaprint though, so I got my order re-sent for free.

    Just because I’m a stickler for perfection, I would return them and ask the seller to make them again.  You still have plenty of time since your wedding isn’t until May.  My wedding is March 31st and I still haven’t sent my Save the Dates.  They probably won’t go out until the first week of October.  I’m a bit of a procrastinator, I guess.  But, I say send em back and ask for a partial refund for the fiasco.

    Cute magnet! I order mine from Vistaprint also and didn’t have any problems.  Seems like the person just stuck them together before they were dry.  I would demand either a re-print or new magnets because it wasn’t your fault.  I am a perfectionist and wouldn’t want to send mine with a smudge. 🙂

    I just looked at it again and really that smudge looks like it could be part of the picture, at least on here.

    aww – gorgeous picture.  Can you send out the ones that are fine or only slightly smudged to the people you think need the most advanced notice – and then ask the seller to send you replacements for the more damaged ones so you can send those out when they arrive to folks who already know your date or dont need to plan as far in advance?

    I would return them as well. If you are not happy with them dont send them out. I will tell you what my mom told me “If you dont like something about your invites or save the dates fix it, if you dont like it someone else may not as well, and that is everyones first impression of your wedding” You cant get a first impression back! At the end of the day does it really matter no, but if your not happy with it then dont send them.

    I think it was a good call to contact the seller to see if you can get the ones that are badly messed up replaced. She may even appreciate it so she can make adjustments to her process in the future (i.e. not stick them on each other so early).

    You comment about the Wedding Gods made me laugh, we are almost done with our save-the-dates and we haven’t finalized our guest list either!

    P.S. The magnets do look adorable!

    Maybe this is part of the Wedding Gods plans to have my fiancee (finally) finalize his guest list and addresses…

    @chastetiltuesdayFB:  LOL!!  We’ve all been there!!
