Photo Magnet Q & A

What types of surfaces can a photo magnet adhere to?

Our magnets are printed with your specified photo, text, or image and feature a powerful earth magnet embedded in the back for a strong hold. 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 Hardcastle for use as letters and numbers on large-scale tracking charts. As need increased, new techniques for molding them were developed and Hardcastle 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 canvas 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.

Get Creative

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.

How do I create my own personal photo magnets?

Designing and creating your own customized photo magnets is easy with our online CanvasChamp photo magnet tool. You simply upload the photo or image of your choice and our easy-to-use wizard will walk you through different material, shape, size, layout, and border options. Editing or resizing is easy to see and understand at this stage to guarantee your magnet turns out the way you envision it.

You can easily add text during this step. We also offer a fun selection of clip art images to add a funny or personal touch to a photo or plain text. It’s also important to decide before you complete your design whether you want multiples of the same image or different individual magnets.

Most basic magnets are rectangular, so photos taken on your phone are already mostly ready to go. But you can also choose a square, heart, or round shape.

Our magnets are printed with Epson Ultra Chrome GS inks on Ribermark Endura Light 150 PVC-free paper and protected with a Mylar PET polyester film covering for long-lasting endurance. A powerful earth magnet covered with a black polypropylene back gives it a strong hold on heavy papers.
