Looking for a fun and trendy way to announce your wedding engagement or wedding date? Save the date magnets are perfect for reminding your family and friends of your big day.
The big moment has arrived; you’re engaged to be married. The first thing every couple wants to do is announce their engagement to family and friends. The question many couples will ask themselves is: 'how will we announce our wedding engagement?'
You can always call the local newspaper to have your engagement information printed in the 'Engagements' section of the paper but let’s face it, everybody does that, right?
Another popular venue for announcing engagements is to mail announcement cards to family and friends. This can be costly depending on the style of cards you decide to send and whether you will have your cards professionally printed or hand write each card yourself. The unfortunate drawback to both ideas mentioned is that their effect on the recipients does not last long. Newspaper clippings and cards are soon discarded or tucked away in a scrapbook or shoebox to be forgotten until discovered years later.
If you really want to make a lasting impact on your family and friends, try sending personalized save the date magnets
. Save the Date magnets are thin magnets, the size of a business card, available in a wide variety of designs and colors. These magnets are personalized with your important announcement in your words.

These thin magnet favors will also make a perfect addition to anyone’s scrapbook.
If you are sending save the date magnets as a reminder of your wedding date, plan on mailing the magnets out 6 to 8 months before your wedding date.
