FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Which magnets are suitable as refrigerator magnets?

Table of Contents
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:

Magnetic words, magnetic letters

Magnetic words and letters work well for refrigerator poetry.
The magnetic words are mainly for entertainment, not for hanging up paper, photos, etc.

Raw magnets

Our neodymium magnets (super magnets) are very strong considering their small size. That's why it can be difficult to grasp a flat super magnet on the refrigerator. Therefore, we discourage using block, disc or ring magnets.
Rod and sphere magnets work very well though. We especially recommend the following articles for attaching postcards, drawings, etc.:
