I'm thrilled with how they turned out! But! Before I reveal them completely, I need to fill you all in:
Do you remember my mockup? Cute (if I do say so myself), but there was a big empty space on top that needed filling!
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to include a magnet into our save-the-dates, but I had no idea what to put on them! Mr. Doxie and I haven't yet taken our engagement photos, and I wanted them to be something that people would enjoy.
In my pre-beedom, I coveted the creativity of all the bees. I still do, in fact! In my obsessive Weddingbee stalking, I came across some adooooorable illustrations by Mrs. Gummi Bear. Mrs. French Bulldog used one for her rehersal dinner invitations, and she's done some commissions for a handful of Bees. I fell in love immediately after seeing Mr. and Mrs. FB on the chinese takeout box! I HAD to have an illustration of Mr. Doxie and me, and I decided that our STD magnets would be its perfect home!
Just a few weeks after contacting Mrs. Gummi Bear via her Etsy shop, she sent me the cutest illustation of us, ever! I expected to be pleased, but I was blown away with how perfect it was; and it was such a pleasure to work with Mrs. GB.
So without further ado:
Gah! That looks exactly like Mr. Dachshund! (We decided it be cute to poke fun at Mr. D's height)
Mrs. Gummi Bear sent me the illustration as a .psd file, and I used Vistaprint to turn them into magnets. After shipping, it was $60.35 for 100 magnets. They're a little thin, but the image quality is great.
