Make your own photo magnets

Magnetise photos with magnetic sheet

Self-adhesive photos

I work with magnets often and come up with various ideas. This time I had the idea of transforming especially beautiful photos into self-adhesive deco objects as give-aways or for sale.
These photo magnets adhere nicely to metal surfaces such as this waste-paper or a fridge or magnetic board.

Printing photos

You can make your own photo magnets very easily: Print the selected photos on A4 photo paper. The menu of the print assistant allows you to select the quantity and composition of photos. You can print, for instance, nine different photos or nine times the same picture. I don't recommend using normal paper, because the photos don't come out that well.

"Magnetise" photos

Then take a sheet of the self-adhesive magnetic sheet, also available in A4 format, peel off the protective foil and carefully press your printed photo paper on the self-adhesive side.
Now cut out the individual photos with scissors or a cutter. And there you have your very own photo magnets!
Instead of using your own photos you can use postcards or something similar as well and glue it directly on the magnetic sheet.
Note from the supermagnete team: More tips and tricks for photo magnets are documented in the Supermagnete chronology application.
