Anyone know if there is a thread anywhere that tells how to actually make the door signs.

I know that magnetic paper is used most of the time. Does the magnetic paper go thru the printer or is it an adhesive that you pull off and apply the image once you have printed it out and then trim around it? If the image only uses a portion of the magnetic sheet, can you use the rest for another image or is it a one use thing? Are the magnetic sheets come in one size? Guess I am looking for Door Signs 101

I have seen that thread, and you are right, it is a long one, but unless I missed it, I did not see where anyone actually explained the process of getting the image on to the magnetic paper. I found lots of links to graphics and suggestions on where to buy the magnetic paper, but again, have never seen anyone say just what the process is. The thread is so long, it could be I skipped over that page.

Have you purchased your magnetic paper yet? I think the printing directions are on the package.

Update- Several websites that sell the paper indicate that the paper is inserted into the printer just as regular paper, you don't have to print, peel and stick.

I purchased my magnetic paper at Walmart. The directions come with it. But you just put it into your printer like you would regular paper. There is nothing to peel away or anything like that. Its actually very easy!

We get our magnetic sheets at Walmart, we put them in our deskjet printer, but only one at a time or they stick together. Then you print them as you would any other paper. They are magnet sheets coated with printer paper.

We always print a test run on normal paper first .
Edited to add: I have printed more than one magnet on each sheet, but they were small and fit on it at one printing, then I separate them with scissors.

These are used to discourage theft of door magnets andwere given to me by (I think) brooksfabfive :

I just use 8.5 X 11 photo paper and then use magnetic tape (you can buy a role of magnetic tape at walmart) strips on the back. You can print photo quality and still retain the stiffness that you need ... as compared to regular paper. The higher the quality photo paper that you buy, generally the stiffer it will be, but even the lowest quality photo paper is plenty stiff enough.

Thats a good idea.

I had not purchased any magnetic paper yet. I am still accumulating graphics and then I am going to get my ideas together. I have over a year before my cruise, but this is one thing I can start working on now, and it will help keep the "Magic" going while we wait, and wait and wait.

I like the using photo paper idea. I am sure that would give a glossy finish to the image, which I would really like.

Another option, in the past I have printed on card stock then laminated the picture with the magnet strips in the back.
