How to choose the right photos for your magnets

Choosing the right photos is essential when creating the perfect photo fridge magnets. Not only do you want to pick images that will look great on your refrigerator, but also ones that represent meaningful memories and experiences. Here are some tips for selecting the ideal photos for your custom magnets:

Choose high-resolution images

The quality of your image determines the quality of your magnets. After all, you do not want to stick a blurry or pixelated photo to your fridge, right?

When working with photos, also known as bitmaps, it is all about pixels. Bitmaps are made up of little dots (pixels). The more dots you have per inch, the better the quality of your image. We recommend option for at least 300 dots per inch (DPI) to ensure a great result.

Select a simple motif

You can use any photo you want, but keep in mind that you are working with limited space. Most fridge magnets are between 4cm and 8cm big. That means a group photo might not create the same effect as a photo of your pet or a family member.

Use a variety of sizes and shapes

Working with different shapes and sizes is essential if you want to create a collage effect for your fridge. When ordering fridge magnets online, you can choose between various shapes, from circle and oval or square to custom shapes like the one you see below.

Materials for creating durable photo fridge magnets

Once you've selected your photos, it's time to choose the right materials for making your magnets.

The best option is a flexible vinyl material that can be easily cut and moulded into any shape or size and is strong enough to hold up against spills, wear and tear, and temperature fluctuations.

You'll also need an adhesive backing to attach the photo to the magnet and a glossy finish for added protection.

Finally, make sure you choose magnets with powerful enough strength to hold your photos in any position - this way, you won't have to worry about them sliding off and ruining your display!

How to make your own photo fridge magnets

Making your own custom photo fridge magnets can be easier than you might think. All you'll need are the materials mentioned above, an X-Acto knife or a cutting machine, a printer and a laminator. First, print your photos onto your chosen material. The better the printer, the higher the print quality will be. You can laminate your printed photos for a glossy finish and added durability. Next, you can trim your photos to the desired size with scissors or an X-Acto knife. If you choose an adhesive backing material, you can quickly transfer your photos onto the magnetic sheet. Then, you can use your knife or a cutting machine to create any shape you want. Now your custom photo magnets are ready to be displayed and enjoyed by all.

If this sounds too complicated, you can simply outsource the work. Once you have your photo ready, simply head over to our fridge magnets product page, enter your desired size, select a material and pick your shape - we'll do the rest and turn your photo into anything from gifts to promotional fridge magnets.
