Photoshop/Illustrator Magnets - DIY maybe? Answered

I found these, I am seriously thinking about spending money on a set, but, they could easily be made using 'printable sheets'.

Easy for one to do with a few screen shots!

I think this set up with the magnetic board would make a pretty sweet item to have on ones wall, especially if your a designer type like me.

If you have random magnets you got for free like from law offices or off of the phone book or something like that you could use those and do this with them. Or you could get a sheets of magnet that are sticky on one side from a craft store, sorta like =SMART= said.

oh! i could buy magnet sheet, then print onto some nice card, and stick it on. Saves messing around printing directly onto it. *goes to ebay it*

Exactly :D That way is probably the easiest way I have found to make magnets.

From my experience with the printable stuff, you'll want a metal backing to the base piece. It doesn't stick to itself very well.

if you go to craft stores they sometimes sell the soft magnetic rubbery stuff that real fridge magnets are made out of. If you combine that with some printed screen shots and double sided tape, then hey-presto !
