When it comes to magnets, size matters! Depending on the purpose of your custom magnets, you need to consider where you plan to stick them. If you choose incorrectly, you may end up with a product that doesn’t fit correctly and is too small or too large for the intended surface. For example, if you’re looking for a fridge magnet, the size should be big enough to make a statement without taking over the entire space.

2. Think about how much space your design needs

The size of your custom magnets is often dictated by the amount of information and imagery that will appear on them. Consider what kind of artwork and graphics you will include and how much surface area they will need. This is important to ensure that your design looks as good on a magnet as it does in your head.

3. If applicable, measure the surface area you want to cover

If you plan on covering a large space with multiple magnets, try measuring the exact dimensions of the surface area you want them to cover. This will help you determine the ideal size for your magnets and how many of them you will need.

4. Order a custom sample if you are still unsure

If all else fails, order a custom sample of your magnet and stick it on the intended surface. That way, you can see how it looks and ensure it’s the right size.
