Save the Date ideas?

Good morning everyone. I am looking into Save the Dates as we are putting a deposit down on our venue this weekend.

Does anyone have any good websites to check out for ideas? So far I've looked at Vistaprint and gotten some random ideas off Pinterest. Just seeing if anyone has any ideas I haven't thought of yet.

Also, I know I don't *have* to have STDs, but I *want* them because I think they are fun.

    Try zazzle.com and magnetstreet.com.  They both have good options

    snapfish.com is what we used. They came as 5x7's and we just added magnet tape to the back. :) So much cheaper than buying full magnets.

    We ordered magnets and they were a bit pricey. If I had to do it over I would definitely use Snap Fish or some website and buy tape.

    We used www.agiftfulheart.com - cheaper than most sites and the quality is excellent. Services was great too! The save the dates are so sturdy, you could almost use them as a coaster.

    I used minted.com.  Not the cheapest, but very reasonable, super high quality, and they came in like 2 days.  The had lots of nice non-photo options (I wasn't interested in a photo save the date), but they have personalized photo ones too.

    I made the magnets myself and they ended up costing less than $0.50 each for 100 of them.

    I designed them on Adobe Illustrator (you can get a free 30 day trial, but it's tricky software to teach yourself, though that's exactly what I did).  Then I printed them on VistaPrint using a coupon code for 50 free large postcards - I put 3 images per postcard.  Then I bought magnetic sheets from HERE.  Then I used 3M spray-on permanent adhesive (acid free) to glue the postcards to the magnetic sheets, and used a paper slicer (and scissors) to cut out each individual magnet.  It was time consuming, but soooo worth it!  They turned out amazing, the magnet is SUPER strong, they're very professional looking, and I only spent like $45 total on materials.  And that's including the paper slicer I had to buy!

    This is what they look like (not my real information) and are approximately 2.5" x 5":

    I used Magnetstreet.com. They were a little pricey I guess (1.49 each) for the classic sized magnets, but I loved that I could personalize them with custom colors and our picture and it was so easy. They also sent a coupon for invites with them, along with nice samples of invites, but I think we are going another route for those.

    I second the recommendation for Etsy. Also, a little more expensive but Wedding Paper Divas has some great ones too.
