Minted (http://www.minted.com), the global design community and e-commerce site, today launched premium save the date magnets and a first-of-its-kind line of die-cut Silhouette save the dates. The nine specialty Silhouette shapes — including wave scallop, dotted scallop, tag, classic frame, and curved frame — accentuate the designs sourced from Minted’s community of thousands of independent designers.
“Only the most beautiful save the date magnets could be worthy of Minted’s renowned design community and our customers’ exacting tastes,” said Mariam Naficy, CEO of Minted. “In addition, our nine new Silhouette shapes offer couples a truly unique and impactful save the date announcement that will stand out from the crowd.”
Minted’s new high-quality save the date magnets are printed on creamy, thick matte paper with a magnetic backer. All of the magnets have elegant rounded corners. Save the date magnets start at $2.07 per magnet.
Minted’s collection of nine unique Silhouette shapes are available as an upgrade to Minted’s luxe save the date cards. At an additional $0.35 each for 100 cards, the Silhouette shapes are an affordable upgrade for couples who seek a memorable memento of their big announcement.
