Magnetic frames are frames that can be used to display objects, such as pictures or other artwork, on metallic objects. This is one of the more popular types of photo frames, especially for parents who may want to display pictures of children or the children's artwork on a home appliance, such as a refrigerator. These magnetic frames can often be bought in bulk for even more savings.
Most magnetic frames are not entirely made of magnets, but some may have magnets which extent around the entire perimeter of the frame. However, most have magnets attached to the sides or corners. It is best to have magnets at the corners or in the middle of all four sides to ensure the frame does not easily become off-center. Some frames may easily be converted into magnetic frames by using an epoxy or high -quality glue to permanently attach magnets to the frame.
While it used to be that those who were interested in magnetic frames had very few options, that is no longer the case. A variety of photo frames come in magnetic options. These include the classic single picture frames and also the collages, which may have several photos inside one frame. Some may even include mats.
The choices do not end there, however. There are plenty of other options that can also be chosen. These magnetic picture frames come in a variety of sizes standard to many photographs. Further, there are also a number of colors that can also be chosen. In the end, the choice depends on the individual's preference.
However, there are some things to keep in mind. Magnetic frames will generally be put on an appliance, which may overshadow the frames. Many prefer a bold frame color that will provide a stark contrast to the color of the appliance. Also, larger photos, or a collection of smaller photos, may help draw attention to the display.
Another option some companies offer is a more personalized picture frame. These magnetic frames can be highlighted with a person's name or a caption explaining the occasion. In some cases, these frames may include a design, such as a sports icon or icon symbolizing love or some other emotion.
It is possible to get magnetic frames for less than $10 US Dollars a piece. Often, because they are so cheap, they will usually come as part of a package of several. Personalized frames will often cost a little more, but will draw some additional attention to the photo or artwork featured.
