Tuesday, June 7, 2011 Makes Your Message Stick


With 4 kiddos and a household to run, I’ve got plenty of appointments and events to keep track of.

Funny how those business cards, paper reminders, and appointment slips seem to congregate in the bottom of my purse.

Or fall out of my wallet the instant I try to pay for something.

Or get lost along with all the other bits of paper on my kitchen island (I think that’s what islands were invented for, collecting bits of paper).

I love it when a business hands me a custom magnet I can stick on the fridge to keep that info you only use once in a while handy, so you don’t have to keep it in your brain.

Glance at my fridge and you’ll find:chicago healthcare unedited

  • a magnetic reminder from my local farmer’s market
  • a magnetic calendar from our family physician
  • magnets from companies I order from on the web
  • magnetic business cards
  • even a dosage chart for kid’s meds


You can bet it’s the mechanic with a magnet on my fridge I call when the car needs servicing. And I’ll never forget that great site with all the blank books for sale, their web addy’s right at eye level. knows the value of keeping your info on your client’s fridge, in plain view. How often do you think someone shows off their collection of business cards to dinner guests?

But a magnet on their fridge? That’s like advertising to every soul who enters their kitchen.

Especially when it’s a distinctive shape or an eye-catching frame magnet.

I was very impressed with the quality of these samples I received from The colors are vibrant, resolution is clear and the laminate coating seems durable enough to stand up to daily use.


These die-cut magnets come apart cleanly without any rough edges, but are attached well-enough that they won’t fall apart on you.

The little wheels in my brain are turning. I’m thinking would be the place to go if I wanted to develop and sell educational manipulatives to use on magnetic whiteboards. I just might give them a call and create some magnetic business cards when I finally start my home business.

But magnets aren’t just for businesses! is packed with ideas for magnetized creations, from family photo greetings, to baby announcements, to wedding invitations, the possibilities are endless.
