    How about using magnetic tape that comes out of a dispenser?

    Sorry to be Captain Bringdown…but please don’t use this on any photo prints you’d like to keep long term. See Beth Heller’s conservation blog for more archival ranting on the topic of tape in general, and magnetic tape in particular. You can even purchase some “Tape Is Evil” merch while you’re there.

    why would you need to stick a matching piece to the fridge?

    SuicycoMania – at least they’ll find me handy.

    Because the outside of the door is covered in fridge magnets.

    I want a fridge that has a massive electromagnet in the door.

    Why don’t they just make double-sided blue masking tape? It doesn’t even have to be magnetic.

    I can vouch for the statement you dont want to use magnetic tape, or any harsh tape for that matter on precious or valuable photos. it just tears them up terribly.
    Suggestion? Clear plastic frame to insert the photo into, and then apply the tape to back of the plastic, not the photo. This will preserve your photos for years to come.
    Take it from me. I have a 640GB hard drive nearly full from photos Ive taken over the last 5-6 years.

    Better though is magnetic paint! BUT you really need stronger magnetic foil for hanging photos on the wall (I tried it already: just photos, no frame will hold)

    Probably much weaker than the stuff that’s been around forever:

    that’s cool.

    they make a type of formica that is metalic so it can be used as a magnet notice board. very handy for covering large all surfaces and using them as pin-up spaces
