The magnet comes rolled up, so I unroll it and stick on the frig door at home so it flattens before applying it. Have done this for last 3 cruises and it works great and looks great!

I previously used the magnet sheets to print on, and they wouldn't stick on the Magic doors, and I think Wonder also has many paint layers so they wouldn't stick there either.
Great info! Thanks. I already bought the magnet paper, so I think I'll give it a try for this cruise and see how it works but take some strips for backup! If it doesn't work, then I'll know better for next time!

I was on the Magic in December. The Avery magnet sheets stuck to the doors. And my laminated DISigns with strips of magnets stuck well also.

Thanks! I used the magnet strips (like on the roll and you cut off how much you need) on the Fantasy in October, but I haven't tried out these Avery magnet sheets yet! I'll be on the Magic this weekend, so sounds like I'm good!

Still hoping someone can tell me if printing them on 8.5 x 11 paper is too big!

I used magnetic paper from Michael's. I used a 50% off coupon per pack. They stick to the doors well.

I used magnet sheets from Staples. By the end of the cruise many magnets were no longer sticking. Was bummed because I was hoping to reuse some on our next cruise

This was our door last August on the Fantasy, all produced using magnetic printer paper. Don't think I'll spend so much time working on it again, probably go for Concierge which means I'll have to ditch the paper for neodymium magnets and laminated pictures and those magnets aren't cheap!

So I was on the Wonder in October. I made my magnets by using mini coloring sheets and then glued them to cardboard & then used that magnets that came on a roll like a tape dispenser. But sadly they didn't stick to the outside door.

But since I worked a long time on them, I stuck them to the connecting door inside my stateroom. I figured we and our stateroom hostess can enjoy them.

I never decorate my stateroom door but I do enjoy looking at them. It also helps me find my stateroom because I use the decorated doors as a map to find my stateroom.
