Photoshop Fiends!

Thank you for all the suggestions! I am going to try and working on the suggestions today or tomorrow, and then repost.

This may seem like a silly question, but I actually couldn't think of a decent answer for it.

How the heck do you send magnet save the dates?

Do you put them in an envelope? That seems a little odd. And rude-- just a magnet, no explanation. I don't like that idea at all. Maybe a postcard with a magnet attached?

What if we did massive postcard sized save the dates ala VistaPrint (thanks for that bit of advice, DangerJane!) How much would postage cost? I don't even want to think about it.

I would just say screw it all together, EXCEPT for the fact that our wedding is so close to Thanksgiving-- I want folks to be able to plan accordingly!

What did you do?

You'd pay less in postage for postcards than you would to send magnets in an envelope. The postcard stamps are kinda stupid looking (a polar bear), but, if you don't care, go for the post card! That's what we're doing! Saves us a good chunk on postage!

i'm glad my suggestion yielded some help! :)

as brittney said, postcard postage is much cheaper than regular postage (we used postcards for our rsvp's). that said, this is how k and i sent out our STDs:

they were magnets that i slipped into decorative card stock cut to size using little slits i cut in the card stock using an exacto knife. the card stock just said "formal invitation to follow" and on the back we signed a "love, m & k" and slipped the whole shebang into an invitation envelope. each envelope only needed one stamp, so it wasn't too expensive for us, but we only invited 60 people.

if you're too worried about postage, you could always do an email save the date, too. :)

Hi, i think your save the date design is awesome. We did save the date photos in photoshop, got them printed 6x4 (very cheap) and superglued magnet strips to the back. That way it was a magnet but still felt better in the envelope. And cheaper of course ;) Hope that helps.
