Magnetic duct-tape

What's better than duct-tape? Magnetic duct-tape!
It couldn't be any easier or more versatile: Just stick a few centimetres of the 19mm (3⁄4") wide patented magnetic tape to the back of your photos, posters, calendars, etc. and a matching piece on the wall, the sloped ceiling, the fridge door, office cupboard, memo board, etc. The tape strips will stick to each other magnetically. And can be just as easily taken off again. Unlike conventional removable adhesive tape, you can use this tape again and again. Ideal, for example, if you need to reposition plans and maps several times.

  1. 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

  2. any place in the states selling this stuff? i can find rolls with “permanent” adhesive, but have yet to find this item specifically…

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. 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.
