Magnet Street Review and Giveaway

Planning a wedding isn't always easy.  There are many factors and decisions that you have to make that can leave you stressed and drained. It can be sometimes difficult to have something exactly the way you want if the resources aren't available.  With Magnet Street, all of your invitation and save the dates dreams and ideas can be made into a reality. 



Magnet Street designs and manufacturers the highest quality custom magnets, save the date magnets and wedding invitations.  There are so many different styles, colors and patterns to choose from, but you'll know exactly when you find the wedding invitation or save the date magnet that is right for you. You also could create custom magnets for your business too. The styles range from funky and fun to vintage and classic.  The best part is you can custom design the invitation.  Just because you see certain colors on the item doesn't mean you have to stick with those.  Change the heading to blue, the text to green and add in a picture in the middle if you desire.  Some of the save the date magnets allowed you to choose up to 5 pictures which I thought was unique, I've never seen that before.

I was allowed to create 100 save the date magnets and envelopes to send out to my wedding guests.  I was beyond grateful for this opportunity! Quickly after receiving the opportunity, I got to work in creating the magnets that would tell people about my special day.  There were so many different choices to choose from, but I quickly ruled out a lot of options because I knew I didn't want to have 4 or 5 pictures on my magnet.  I finally settled on the gorgeous watercolor ombre.  I loved the pretty light pink and coral background, and the fun font added some extra personality.

 
The design process can be a little tricky. Once you enter the design lab portion of the website, you can edit the pre-existing magnet design that you chose. You click on whatever portion of the magnet you want to change and you're able to fix it that way.  Since the text surface is small, you can't add too much words.  The lab kept telling me I had errors on the text when I changed the wording.  It took me some time to figure out what the issue was and how to make the font smaller in some areas.  You do need to have some patience in the beginning when you're learning how to make your desired changes though.  Once I got the hang of it, I was finished in no time.
 
I added in the basic things: names, wedding venue date and location, etc.  After making my text changes, the only hard thing was figuring out what picture to use.  I scanned through my computer and finally settled on a picture of me from my birthday.  You want to make sure that you use a picture of both of you that is close up and clear (no sunglasses, hats, etc.) You can thank my mother for giving me that piece of advice, haha.
 
The magnets arrived to me in about ten days.  There was a two day delay in receiving my shipment since there was an issue with some of the design machinery. You have to expect some kind of delay with custom items. I don't think that's so long to wait for a custom item though.  They came in a pretty blue box and my magnets and envelopes were wrapped with protective padding.  The magnets stick to the fridge well. The envelopes come with your magnet order, there is no extra fee for them.  The magnets are very high quality and I am satisfied with how they came out! I really am happy with how I designed them and I have no regrets, and wouldn't want to make any changes. A wedding invitation booklet was included with my order and it featured a 25% savings coupon on any future invitation order! That is a huge savings and I will be definitely keeping that in mind.
 
The envelopes are beautiful and the inside is lined in a really nice bright silver.  I had someone who had beautiful script handwriting address my save the date envelopes for me on Friday night.  The rest of my night was spent licking envelopes and putting stamps on them.  I ordered matching water color ombre return address labels that I put on the envelope too. I liked that they matched the magnet perfectly.  You only get married once and I wanted to make it as special as possible.
 
I'm really satisfied with Magnet Street and I highly recommend them for any of your present or future wedding needs.
