Customer Raves & Reviews

I just have to say I got my save the dates and my wedding invitations and they were both amazing. It was so easy to customize them online and once I ordered them they were here in no more than a week. I did need to change something after I approved them and they were able to change it for me. There is nothing that was not perfect! Highly recommend!
Lovely Invitation, great design team!

I really love this invitation (and everything about magnet street as I have ordered several items for our wedding using the "tender tendril" theme). I changed the colors to match my wedding colors and the complete invite is gorgeous. Classic with a modern twist. The design team centered the actual invite words for me and changed the font to the script (because I wasn't able to center and get the font correct myself). They did a fantastic job, and it was done super quickly. I chose the luxe pearl, because I do think that extra shimmer is a really nice touch. (The thought to go to the luxe pearl was that outside of my save the date magnets six months ago, this will be the first impression of our wedding, and I wanted to make sure people knew this will be a lovely event.)
I read other reviews from some brides about the ink being a problem (running or smearing) on this invitation, and they were right - some of the invites had ink smears on them or the edges were pushed in, causing me not to use those invites. I ordered 125 invites, needing 96 total, and I probably wasn't able to use 25 of them because of the above listed problems. Also, I did have to buy extra stampage for these (I did three step cards, an RSVP envelope, vellum band, and vellum sheet) - luckily, USPS has 70 cent wedding stamps that you can order online, so that really wasn't a big deal, but just know that it's a possibility going in. I haven't actually sent the invite yet, but a few people have seen them (and helped me do the folding and stuffing), and they all have said they are really beautiful. Overall, I am super pleased. Just order extra, and it's a great choice!

I quickly becme concerned that pocket invitations were not in our budget but finding these on magnet street really made me smile. Not only were they cheaper to begin with magnet street was offering a 25% discount on invitations when I ordered! I am looking forward to sending these to our guests.
Beautiful but heavy

I love these cards! Everyone who has received one also loves them. I had a few issues with mine though. With the way they packaged them, a few had some of the solid colour wear off. On some, it was barely noticeable. On others, it was a large white line that had formed. Luckily, I have ordered WAY too many (think number of households versus number of individual guests... yep, I ordered twice as many as I needed).
Another issue came up when I went to mail them. They are .44kg so they fall into the "heavy" range and require $1.10 for postage instead of the usual $0.63. I hadn't expected this and it really upset me at the time. I don't recall seeing anything on the website stating that it may require extra postage. I have a directions card, an rsvp, and a guest information card in the pocket, but I didn't expect that they would come up heavy.
I personalized mine with a dark purple and a silvery-gray. The gray showed beautifully and the purple was bright and rich. The purple was a bit too rich as it would also rub off on the envelope a bit as I was putting the card in.
The envelopes were plain white and fantastic. The seal stuck without an issue. The paper is of a GREAT quality.
I uploaded a map I created to the back of the Directions card and it looks amazing. It came our super clear and the red colour really popped. I love that I was able to use a colour image on the back.
Overall, I am SUPER happy with my purchase. I would easily order from Magnet Street again. I also recommend them to all my friends!

You make it easy to personalize as much as possible. There are quite a few options to make anything your own. It would be nice to be able to pick and choose the designs to put them together though.
