The size of magnets
You can choose save the date magnets in any size. However, small wedding magnets measuring 3.5″ x 4″ or 4″ x 5.5″ fit easily into standard size envelopes= while larger models may need custom made envelopes.
If you are sending it across through the U.S. Postal Service, make sure that the minimum size of your envelope is 5″ x 3.5″ or more. As magnets often weigh more than paper, you may have to pay extra postage.
It is a smart idea to attach smaller magnets to blank paper cards to keep the magnets secure and prevent these from slipping around in their envelopes. Attaching a paper card to the back of the magnet will prevent the magnet from clinging to any metallic surface that these may come in contact with during the transit- for instance the letter box itself where you are dropping these magnets!
How to choose your envelopes
The type of envelope you choose is important while sending save the date magnets. Ideally the envelopes should be thick to withstand the weight of the magnets during transit. Choosing envelopes made with paper of at least 80lb. thickness will help you to ensure that your save the date magnets reach your guests without fail. Lined envelopes is another option.
How to keep the magnet inside the envelope
It is recommended to place the magnet in the envelope facing the back so that the recipients will see the beautiful image on the front of the magnet the moment they open it. It will indeed enhance the experience for your guests and make it more memorable.
Add a personal card
If the couples have more information to share with their guests, it will be a good idea to include a card printed with all the extra details instead of putting in too much information on the magnets. Include a small card with information about flights, rental cars, and local hotels among others to help your guests plan for the wedding day in advance.
