- Wedding: April 2015 - Chateau at Forest Park
I am wanting to send out save the date magents butttt with a big wedding (210 people 90 invites) its just way to much then what I want to spend. Has anyone DIY STD magents? If so, how? I foun a pdf file on Etsy and thought about buying that ($15.00) and buying the magent pages from Office Max (10.00) and printing them at home.
I just want to make sure it will come out nice before wasting money and then ending up buying them from a website.

jaycarrion1008: I was going to do the same, except my friend is a designer and made our Save-The-Date Cards 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 Save-The-Date Cards, 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 Fiance, then DL a free fancy font online.

- Wedding: August 2015 - Carmen's Lakeview
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!.
