Which magnets are suitable as refrigerator magnets?

Generally, all our decorative magnets are suitable for use on the refrigerator.

Please note the following particularities of refrigerators:
  • Refrigerator doors are often being opened and closed with a jerk.
  • There is often a window open in the kitchen, which might lead to wind tearing on hanging objects.
  • The iron in the refrigerator door tends to be very thin and is always coated.
For those reasons, it is important to choose magnets with an adhesive force of approx. 1 kg in order to securely attach postcards, notes, etc. to the fridge.

Colourful refrigerator magnets

All of our colourful magnets with an adhesive force of at least 1 kg are suitable as fridge magnets:

Rod and sphere magnets work very well though. We especially recommend the following articles for attaching postcards, drawings, etc.:

We have gathered a whole lot of inspiration to make your own refrigerator magnets.
