I used the usps service to make my save the date postcards which were 86 cents each to print and ship directly from the service, but now they've raised their prices by at least 20 cents!

Great idea!  We designed a 4x6 postcard in Photoshop, the uploaded it onto an online print store and got 100 postcards for $20!  We used gotprint.com, if anyone wants to explore that option.

Now I'm not doing STDs but maybe this would work for somebody:

How about printing a bunch of mini monthly calanders on light colored paper (8.5x11 sheets), Circle the date, Laminate the whole sheet and cut out the months? That certainly can't be too much money. If you'd like you could also probably put some graphics on it

I loved your idea too! I just happened to find a website, www.magnetvalley.com, that has printable business card magnets, to save time trying to stick the paper on the magnets. 10 sheets of 10 cards each are only $15.99. The only limitation is that you have to have an injket printer.

I love the idea of a magnet, but you have to be careful...a lot of those magnets don't stick very well so if your sending them out months and months ahead of time they may end up under the fridge. I preferred using adhesive inkjet sheets to create a custom sticker that people could place on their own calendars. That way i didn't have to worry about the magnet not being strong enough and getting lost amidst all the other stuff people have attached to their refrigerators.

We made ours on Kodak Ofoto.  We sent postcards with a picture of us when we got engaged and then all of the info on the back.

Pretty cheap and easy.

Two ideas... Order 100 custom designed post cards for free at Vista Print.com. OR... they have calendar magnets (10 at a time) for free as well. Free...!!

Second..have a friend snap a photo of you and your fiance hold up a Save the Date poster. Make prints online at SnapFish (first 15 are free).

I have more ideas posted on my web site.. http://www.thumbsuporpantsdown.com

 


Have a great day,

i saw somewhere this cute idea of getting posterboard or some kind of paper and write save the date (one word on each piece) and then on another write the date and go to a photobooth and hold each one up (in order of course) and it look really neat. 

my other idea came to me when we took my little cousin to chuckie cheese's. they have this one thing it's like a photobooth but it sketches your picture instead of a photo you get a sketch and maybe do something with that? 

i still need to work out the details but hey it's a start for me...
