SQUEEE!!! My magnets are shipping!

I took all my DIS-igns from the awesome DIS-igners here and sent them to Vistaprint to make magnets out of them. I just got the shipping notification. I can't wait to see hwo they came out! I hope they are nice! I was goingto print them mysef at home, but decided to go this route. I'll let you know the results of my test when they arrive!

Awesome. Which ones did you get? Not DISigns, but from VistaPrint? Like Large, Medium, etc?

Where do I find these? I am platinum on DCL and I buy magnets from the places we go and on board the ship to decorate my door. Invariably- they get stolen and I get so bent out of shape! I marvel and wonder at all the fancy personalized staterooms doors and DREAM of being able to do that! I found magnets on ETSY for purchase and would love to be able to make my own like you have! Please help!!

Have them do a personalized DiS-ign for you, then upload that design to Vistaprint and have it printed as a magnet! That's how I did it. You can also print them at home, but the ones I got from Vista came out so nice, I'd do them again in a heartbeat.

I got the 8.5 x 11 car door magnets. I arranged my Dis-igns in Power Point and uploaded to Vista. Then I just cut around the designs like I would have if I had printed them at home. I still have a few more to cut out. When I get them done, I'll post a pic of my washer and drayer which is where I'm storing my magnets for right now!

8.5 x 11 are $10.
11 x 17 are $20

But not sure if they charge for shipping... Not a bad idea as I do believe these are much stronger than the Avery pack...

In any case, I do recommend 'customizing' them to prevent them from being stolen. That said, if you have magnets that disappear, it's probably kids moving them to different doors. I always write down on sharpie my last name in the back if it's not personalized.

NOTE: Shipping kills the deal... About $5-$6 for one magnet 14 day shipping...

Uploading your photo to Shutterfly and printing at Target is cheap - $2.89 for an 8x10 and super pretty and no shipping costs! We've done this at Costco and Sam's Club, but the ones printed at Target are the best quality.

Then, you do need to affix to magnets - we get the 1 ft x 2 ft magnet sheets at Michaels (with a coupon), peel off the backing and affix the photo. Then, we cut it to the shape we want.

Excellent quality & cheap & easy!!

I just bought a $50 gift card to VistaPrint from Living Social for $8. It's on sale for $10 and with the code JULY20, I was able to get 20% off...so $8. You can easily google this offer...It's available for the next 5 days. If someone wants my referral link, email me and I'd be glad to share

Thanks for the idea OP and also to PP for suggesting Living Single deal! I wanted to do magnets but my printer here at home sucks.
