About Your Custom Fridge Magnets
Your premium, made in the UK fridge magnets radiate quality and charisma. They are thick, substantial and beautifully display your unique prints in full, high definition colour. Choose from rectangle or circle shapes, and customise each magnet individually to create an eclectic set of printed fridge magnets. Alternatively, each magnet can be printed with the same design, which is a favourite option for branding purposes. They come in packs of 5, 10 or 20, ideal if you only need a few to hold up some memos at home, or if you need a batch to kit out the company's kitchens. Made from glossy plastic with rounded edges and a slightly curved surface, your custom fridge magnets are a contemporary take on a classic kitchen accessory.

How Magnet Printing Works
We invest in only the highest quality materials and inks for our bespoke magnet printing, resulting in a set of fridge magnets that radiate contemporary style. Your original designs are printed onto the thick, glossy plastic, which has been moulded to feature a slightly curved surface and rounded edges. This adds depth to your design, and the faded print wrap around on the sides creates a striking 3D effect. We use a specialist printing process that fuses the ink deep into the surface of the plastic, so the design will never peel away, scratch off or rub over time. Expect vibrant, rich colours and intricate details showing up clearly.
Your custom printed magnets have a shiny, glossy surface that can easily be wiped clean with a tissue or damp cloth. Even with daily wear and tear, the impregnated print on the plastic means your unique designs will always stay vibrant and rich.
Design Tips to Make Your Own Fridge Magnets
Your custom fridge magnets are designed individually, so you can create a set of 5, 10 or 20 that all feature unique prints. If you're into iconography, you can create a decorative alphabet so people can spell out words on the fridge; a good way of injecting humour into the workplace. If working with a single image, it is better to cover the entire magnet with the image. This will offset any potential off-centering which can naturally occur during the printing process. Your image print will be wrapped around the corners giving your magnets a more uniform finish. The colour and detail reproduction is sublime, so take advantage of this and go crazy with colour explosions. Combined with the glossy surface and 3d wrap around effect, it's guarantees that from all angles, your custom fridge magnets will stand out on any surface. They come in a 65mm x 46mm x 7mm rectangle or circle, so ensure your desired image fits the shape.
How does this product enhance my...
Fridge magnets, custom printed with your own special designs, are a fun addition to the family fridge. From securing shopping lists and to-do notes to using your magnets to signify whether the dishwasher needs emptying, they're such a versatile product with added premium quality. Use your printed magnets on any magnetic surface, not just in the kitchen. For example, turn a magnetic notice board into a reward chart, and print designs that symbolise good or bad behaviour.
Give your office a mini revamp and make your own fridge magnets for the company. As a team building exercise, employees can be encouraged to leave notes of appreciation to their work colleagues either on the fridge or their metal desk drawers. They can be branded, or alternatively given fun designs to incentivise the activity. If you work in a show home, magnet printing could help you promote your sale items. I.e, print 50% off onto your magnets and place on discounted kitchenware.
Do you have your own design brand but are bored of printing your artwork onto the same old canvases and poster prints? Diverge your attention to custom fridge magnets and tap into the massive homeware market. Funny or relatable magnets are always a favourite gift or kitchen accessory, so have your artwork adorn these beautifully made fridge magnets. The colour reproduction and high definition print quality brings your art to life, and they're such an easy item to promote and sell.
Frequently asked questions:
Where is my design printed?
We print your design directly onto the top of the custom fridge magnets, as well as stylish faded wraparound print that creates an awesome 3D effect. The print is bold, vibrant and high definition.
How thick are my magnets?
To guarantee the best results for magnet printing, we use 7mm thick plastic, giving your magnets depth and weight. This also enhances the look of the wraparound print.
Are there different sizes to choose?
You can make your own fridge magnets in 2 shapes; either rectangle or circle. This is ideal if you have specific designs that work best on a square base or a circular base.
What's the best resolution to print in?
We print at 200dpi, which is a good combination of quality and file weight. Ideally, your image should be scaled to 100% at 200dpi, this means that no resizing of your file occurs stopping any interpolation.
Should I save my file as a TIFF or JPEG?
For multi-coloured or very detailed files we recommend using a tiff format, but they must be flattened. For simple colours and low detail files, a jpeg is fine.
Which colour model should I choose? RGB or CMYK?
If each individual colour is specifically important to your design, choose CYMK as our setup will print each colour with the closest possible match within our available range. If the relationship between the colours within the image is more important, choose RGB, this will reduce all colours equally to fit within our range.
What does GSM mean?
Grams per Square Meter (GSM) is an international standard for measuring the weight of paper or fabric. GSM uses the weight of a square meter (1000 x 1000mm) as an indication of the weight and thickness of a given fabric. We class 20-100gsm as light (summer fabrics, gauzes and fine silks), 101-249 gsm as medium (most clothing fabrics) and 250+ gsm as heavy (upholstery fabrics, and other specialist fabrics).
What are the bleed areas?
When designing your product, it’s best to make sure that your image is slightly larger than needed. In printing, the extra printed image is referred to as a “Bleed Area” or margin, and it is removed from the finished piece. A bleed area acts as a buffer for slight inconsistencies in the manufacturing process. however, it’s important to fill your bleed areas completely, or you may end up with white, unprinted strips along the edge of your finished product.
Do you print on garments a customer supplies?
Unfortunately not. All our garments are printed on flat fabric and sewn into finished products, which gives a better, finished result and all-over print. We test meticulously so that we know what gets the best results on our fabrics, and our facilities cater perfectly to them. We do however print sublimation paper to order, so if you have access to a heat press you can press your fabrics or flat garments easily.
Can you Align a Pattern or design across panels of a garment?
We always strive for the greatest accuracy when printing and constructing your garments. However, due to unavoidable stretch or movement of the fabric during the stitching process, we cannot guarantee perfect pattern registration across garment seams. We are generally accurate within 2-3mm, which Is close enough for most patterns but may show slight issues with detailed geometric patterns.
Can I print my own Labels?
Most of our garments now come with printable label space for you to add your own company information and branding! If you would like to sew in your own labels, we also offer Printed Fabric Labels here.
How is your fabric printing eco-friendly?
With environmental consciousness in mind, our fabrics are all printed using completely water-based inks. This means no chemicals or solvents are used. Our heat fixing procedure fixes the colours and prints, avoiding the downsides of steaming, such as excess or contaminated water returning into the waste system. We have one facility in London where we conduct all the printing, production and fulfillment.
