We did their 5.5″ x 4.3″ fridge magnet for our STDs. We designed it ourselves in photoshop, then uploaded it as an image, which was nice. The quality of the magnet was fine. Holds up fine and can hold paper to the fridge without a problem, in fact I have a stack of 3 or 4 on my fridge right now waiting to be mailed to new guests. Another perk: I didn’t have to use extra postage (seemed hefty, but weighed in just under max).

The photo quality isn’t perfect, which I suspect is to be expected with a magnet, especially from a company that does mostly corporate stuff. But we have had a ton of complements and people asking where we got them.

Very good prices. Always a sale. They get you on shipping, so look for free shipping. They will send you an email every day.

We ordered return address labels from them for super cheap, but the shipping cost more than the actual labels!  They do send a lot of e-mails, and coupons in those e-mails.  But they ship very quickly regardless of the method you choose.

I used the large magnet for my STD’s.  I was happy with the quailty.  I uploaded a custom design and even had someone from their tech support group help me make sure they would print out correctly with a black border since there is a small margin for error on the edges and I didn’t want it to look funny.  I let them come with the cheapest possible shipping and I had 30 magnets in my hand for $29 with tax and shipping.  Oh, and I was able to mail them in a regular envelope for just the regular one stamp price.  It’s not a super thick magnet but it definitely does the job and looks nice.  We got a lot of compliments.  

 

Oh, and they do send you tons of promotions.  I ordered custom address labels with a promotion I got a couple of weeks later and got 140 labels for $3.00 with shipping.

I get tons and tons from their and their quality is great. Word to the wise. Don’t sign up for the wedding samples you will then only get the wedding emails and the business emails give you better deals and tons of free stuff. I got my std magnets for free along with post cards to stick them to, and the envelopes.

We ordered the businesscard magnets and love them! We didn’t use a photo for it, I uploaded a design though. They came in exactly the time stated and the color is very accurate. My Fiance had stuck all the magnets to the fridge when I came home yesterday! I don’t think theyre flimsy, they’re like every other business magnet I’ve gotten. My Fiance did point out though, that even thought we ordered their 100 count, they only gave us 99, and then the last magnet was a coupon code -_-. We ordered more than necessary but it was still kind of ridiculous.

i didn’t think about the envelopes and ended up buying one of those blank card sets that comes with envelopes. Since our std’s didn’t actually say we were getting married, i printed that on the cards in 3 languages (both families are immigrants).

I would have ordered theirs had I thought of it though. Easier & cheaper. If I remember correctly, the magnet was slightly too tall for a standard envelope – I think I could close it, but it looked messy.

I agree…I just bought nice envelopes to put them in.  I didn’t use the vistaprint envelopes.  I figured I would buy “nicer” envelopes when it came time for invitations but for the STD’s a target envelope was just find for me!

We ordered custom postcards from Vistaprint for our Save-the-Dates, and also 25 wedding announcements for folks who can’t come to the wedding.  Both were beautifully done and very reasonable in cost.  I will definitely use the site again.  Good luck!
