Part 1. Different Materials of Fridge Magnets


First of all, you need you know that, a fridge magnet is made of magnet on the back to make it magnetic and a sticker on the surface with logos. The ferric oxide and a plastic or rubber binder are heated, mixed together, and poured into a sheet mold which is then exposed to a strong magnetic field.


 
Then, we talk about the stickers on magnets.
 
Many types of fridge magnet decorations can be found in the market. Generally speaking, they can be classified into the following types, as per their materials.
 
  • Metal Fridge Magnets
  • Soft PVC / Rubber Fridge Magnets
  • Tinplate / Tin Fridge Magnets
  • Epoxy Fridge Magnets
  • Foil Paper / Aluminium Fridge Magnets
  • Polyreisn Fridge Magnets
  • Ceramic Fridge Magnets
  • CD Plate Fridge Magnets
 

Part 2. Basic Craftsmanship of Fridge Magnets



The craftsmanship of different fridge magnets is complicated. Here I list three of the most widely used crafts - Color Filling, Printing and Engraving.
 
  • Color Filling


Enameling is one of the oldest surface treatments to make metal crafts appealing look. After filling colors, the colors can be bright, real and durable. Besides, this craftsmanship has the advantage - good adhesion to most metals. As a result, most metal fridge magnets can be enameled with beautiful colors.


 
  • Printing

 
Printing is the most widely used technology for fridge magnets of different materials, including paper printing, CMYK/Offset printing, screen printing, etc.
 

 
  • Engraving

 
Engraving is relatively more complicated. The handmade engraved magnets are really time-consuming. Therefore, the magnets you see in the market are mainly engraved by machines. To the fair, some of them are actually also sophisticated enough to amaze us.
 

 

Part 3. Creatitive Fridge Magnets



Fridge magnets are not only magnets! When choosing fridge magnet souvenirs, you can get some more useful items.
 
For example, some decorative refrigerator magnets are designed as bottle opener; some ones with thermometer; some others are funny enough & not-toxic as kids’ toys; still others, they can even be dinner bells.


 
Buy some creative magnets, and you’ll feel good every time you gonna open your refrigerator.
 

Part 4. Custom Fridge Magnets With Your Own Logo



Many fridge magnet manufacturers, say Logoson, offer custom logo service if needed. What you need to do is tell them your ideas about your preferred magnets, or just send them your artworks.
