Mr & Mrs Movie Save the Date

My pick for a favorite project this January month is a recent order for a movie poster look a like save the date magnet.  The idea of a save the date that looks like a movie poster isn't uncommon.  Not all movie posters are made equal though- there is plenty of room for quite a variety within this idea.

In this case, they wanted their save the dates to look a bit like those for the 2005 movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which was about a married couple that were each a spy for a different group.

The most important part of this movie poster design was, of course, the photo.  That part was up to the couple.  Key elements for the photo: the right clothes, poses, and a light background.

Their idea ended up just fitting onto a 4.15x5.35 inch magnet.  Larger and custom magnet sizes are available, but this size happens to fit easily into A2 envelopes (a common size) for mailing.

Result: fun save the dates.
