jaycarrion1008:  I was going to do the same, except my friend is a designer and made our STDs for us, then I was going to get the sheets of magnets from staples (canada) and hand deliver most of them to save on postage.

I ended up e-mailing the STDs, most of them anyways, some people I never got an e-mail address from and then I stopped caring. People who were going to be invited knew when the wedding was from me or through the grapevine and it was a lot of work for nothing.

I have seen them done that way and they looked really nice. You could even create your own file. Take a nice pic of you and your FI, then DL a free fancy font online.

I DIYed my save the dates and I was going to do magnets.

We decided against it and used postcards and spray painted over them with gold glitter. They turned out beautiful anyways 🙂

I’m not sure of your budget but my fiance and I designed our save the dates on the computer ourselves, brought them to staples and had 100 of them printed on beautiful glossy magnets at their copy and print shop for $108!! My cousin paid triple that on hers because she had a place online make them for her. This is what ours looks like 🙂 We added a heart gem on the 10th by hand to each of the magents. Time consuming yes but well worth it if you ask me!.
