It is safe to assume that most homes have a refrigerator, and it is also safe to say that most refrigerators serve two purposes. The obvious use for a refrigerator is to keep food cold, but refrigerators are also a perfect place to display magnets. Although many magnets wind up on refrigerators, even people who do not choose to decorate their appliances will find places to display magnets. Personalized magnets, whether made at home or ordered online, are a terrific way to advertise a company, remind someone of an important event or simply make someone smile.
A prominently displayed magnet that advertises a business will keep that company name fresh in a person's mind. Business magnets can include the company logo, a photo or the business slogan. It is of utmost importance, of course, to include contact information such as a phone number or website. After all, the purpose of a business magnet is to make certain that people will remember and use that company instead of the competition.
Magnets also are becoming a popular format for "save the date" announcements. Couples can have magnets made with an engagement photo and the date of their wedding. This announcement will not get lost under a stack of papers on the desk, and it will be a ready reminder of the upcoming wedding. This sort of magnet could certainly be used for other important events as well. Business conventions, family reunions and any other important occasions can be put on a magnet. This is an effective and creative way to make sure one's guests will remember to hold open the date.
Of course, personalized magnets do not need to serve any purpose other than to make the recipient smile. Magnets can simply be pictures of loved ones sent to far-away relatives. Grandmas might be thrilled to have a yearly photo magnet that won't need a frame or shelf space to be displayed.
There are many ways to make magnets with a personal touch. Quite a few online companies now offer a multitude of options for customers who need many copies of a magnet. Many companies offer discounted prices when a large quantity of magnets is purchased. The size and thickness of the magnet should be considered since larger and thicker magnets cost more to make. With some companies, it is less expensive to request a stock image rather than customizing the magnet with personal pictures. As with any purchase, the customer will do well to shop around for the best deals.
Magnets also lend themselves well to do-it-yourself projects. Many craft stores sell magnets of varying shapes and sizes. With a little imagination, these can turn into highly individualized gifts. It is simple to turn a plain magnet into a work of art by adding photos, glitter, buttons or other craft materials. Personalizing magnets is a great craft project for children who are old enough to handle glue. With a little help, even very young children can make a special magnet as a gift for a grandma or favorite aunt.
Magnets, especially those that are personalized, are inexpensive gifts for a client, a guest or relative. They are simple and fun to make, and they are sure to find a home on someone's refrigerator.
