Yeah, that doesn’t sound right that you can print right onto magnetic paper.  I could see printing on label paper then sticking it onto the magnetic backing.

My FI got me some for Christmas, it was cool to print magnets at home, but the ink takes for-ev-er to dry and you’re not supposed to touch the magnet paper before you print on it because the ink won’t stick to it.  You can then just cut the magnets out with regular scissors.  The magnets themselves were not very strong and probably would not do well trying to hold something onto the fridge.

If you’re thinking about getting some to DIY save the dates or something I wouldn’t suggest it.  It takes too much ink, and worrying for the cost of just buying magnets.

I was considering printing my own magnets when I was doing my save the dates.  However, after pricing out how much the magnet paper would be, plus the ink (and not factoring in the time/hassle/stress/difficulty of cutting straight), it was just as economically feasible to buy magnets already made.  I went with Magnetqueen.com.  They were really fast and have free samples to see the magnet quality.  I ordered 75 but I ended up getting closer to 95 since I believe they just finished the sheet and sent the extra magnets from my job.

Plus all the reviews I’ve read say that the magnet paper that you print on can start to curl a bit.  It just wasn’t worth the stress for me.  Good luck!

depending on how big you want them Avery has business card sized magnets that are on precut sheets that just pop out after you print.
