A fridge magnet is used to post different items on a refrigerator. Our fridge magnets are custom printed to your specifications. We are your magnetic sticker store and supplier. From grocery lists to fridge magnets with quotes.

We also do not use the thin magnet which usually only last a while and then keeps on falling off the fridge, but thick, 0.6 mm magnet material, which can also be used for car magnets.

A fridge magnet or refrigerator magnet is an ornament either attached to a small magnet, or made from sheet magnet which is then cut in squares or rectangles. We cannot die-cut fridge magnets into any other shapes.

Manufacturing of fridge magnets.

A modern day fridge magnet is a flexible magnet made of a ferromagnetic compound called ferric oxide mixed with a plastic binder like PVC. This is then flattened to a sheet by rolling and then passes on a conveyor belt over a line of powerful circular magnets. This magnetizes the PVC sheet with magnetic poles in a line format which alternates on every second line.

Before the sheet magnets were manufactured, ferrite magnets were in common use with decorated items glued to the magnets with adhesive. They were created in the 1920s.

The collecting of fridge magnets as a hobby.

Collectors specialise in collecting magnets from their travels, or of particular themes. Fridge magnets can be found worldwide in souvenir shops. Fridge magnets are popular souvenirs and among the most commonly used items for advertising and brand recognition we make for our customers.

There is no generally recognized term for a person who is a collector of fridge magnets.

Louise J. Greenford from Henderson, Nevada is, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest verified collector of refrigerator magnets in the world. In November 2015 Louise was still collecting fridge magnets and had about 45 000 different fridge magnets.

The largest collection of fridge magnets in Europe belongs to Tony Lloyd, a teacher in Cardiff. In February 2018, Tony's collection was over 5 000 magnets.

We have no idea who the largest collector of fridge magnets in South Africa is.

Are magnets bad for a fridge.

The flexible fridge magnets produced today cannot damage your fridge when you apply the magnet. It does not affect the function of the fridge in any way.

The only thing that could worry you is if the magnets are strong enough to adhere to the fridge. Do they fall off and make a mess or do they make your fridge look smarter?
