Photo Magnet Q & A
What types of surfaces can a photo magnet adhere to?
Our custom magnets are printed with your specified photo, text, or image and feature a powerful earth magnet embedded in the back for a strong hold. Photo magnets can stick to iron, nickel, and cobalt, as well as to blended-iron metals, such as steel. Common surfaces for magnet use are refrigerators, lockers, file cabinets, metal shelves, and white boards. It is always important to remember, though, that magnets should be kept away from laptops, smartphones, tablets, or anything with a magnetic field.
Why are refrigerator magnets so synonymous with kitchen décor?
Magnets were originally designed for the space industry by a pioneering inventor named Sam Hard castle for use as letters and numbers on large-scale tracking charts. As need increased, new techniques for molding them were developed and Hard castle begin molding magnets to sell in the souvenir industry. These magnets represented each of the 50 United States and highlighted special features and attractions of the corresponding state. They soon became collectors’ items.
Today, magnets are common household items that allow for unique decorating opportunities on generally unused space while also serving the practical function of holding fun or necessary items in an easy-to-see place. Instead of decorating your fridge with photos or images, you can now have your desired images created into magnets, which frees up space for shopping lists, reminders, take-out menus, or kids’ fun artwork. Personalizing your magnets also creates a cleaner look for your decorating space. In addition, companies can create customized promotional magnets to keep your brand top of mind.
What are the best ways to give magnets as gifts?
Because of their small, versatile size and easy fit in envelopes, magnets create an ideal gift for an assortment of fun situations. They are perfect for creating a memorable and hard to lose “Save the date” card for weddings. Baby, graduation, baptism, and wedding announcements can last forever when they’re printed on magnets. A special photo together will remind Mom or Dad who’s the real favorite on Father’s Day or Mother’s Day.
Family photos are a great inclusion with your Christmas card. Start a yearly tradition with a personalized souvenir of your latest vacation. Make sure to always keep one for yourself to create an interactive collage of all the exotic places you’ve visited.
Dorms, First Apartments, Office
Funny images or sayings can liven up lonely dorm rooms or first apartments where more permanent decorating options can be difficult to negotiate. Magnets are also great in the office on whiteboards or file cabinets and as Secret Santa gifts for those difficult-to-please coworkers. Funny phrases or sayings will get laughs over and over from curious guests.
Personalized photo gifts are a great excuse to set up a photo shoot. Get creative and switch things up: Different poses or props in burst mode can create a charming “photo booth” look that can lend creative character to a space, while different angles of the same location can create unique panorama effect.
How can I use customized magnets to promote my work?
Personalized magnets also make fun and colorful advertising where your clients store their most important info – the fridge! Keep valuable contact information or a business card from slipping through the cracks by making it a functional magnet. Artists can make a bright and enduring impression by displaying their work without the hassle of hyperlinks and shortcuts.
Due to their small size, magnets can easily be included in flyers or given away at tradeshows and conventions. Since they’re not printed on paper, magnets can endure tough travel conditions like bad weather or leaks that might ruin other promotional items.
