Note: I'd never print them out at home. That magnet paper costs too much & isn't as nice, and, that's too much printer ink!

This is a great idea....I used all my ink last year . How much is the magnet roll?

$10, but we use a 40 or 50% off one item coupon, making it $5 or $6. And, we get several cruises out on 1 magnet roll. We always have an 8x10 printed for our "main" magnet, then a few smaller ones.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I need to get my magnet roll and decide on the magnets we want - which is probably going to be the most difficult decision of all.

I had it before but now I can't find it! There is a Mickey ears silhouette with the Alaska itinerary map in it. I thought I had bookmarked it but now I can't find it. And search after search has yielded nothing. Little help?

EDIT: I finally found it on page 150-something of a magnet thread. WHEW!

Also I am looking for anything Figment, please! I had wanted a porthole Figment, but would settle for just about anything. He is hubby's fave character and I want to surprise him!

This is my first Disney Cruise, but I was making magnets for our 3 families so I printed on card paper and bought magnets at Michael's. It would have been way too expensive for me to use magnetic paper for all of them. I didn't laminate them. They look great, but I have no idea how well they will hold up.

Milliepie - i can not seem to be able to find a post of a request I made last week, so here is my list. We dont depart until late September. Thank you so much! You do GREAT WORK!

DCL magic tag - one with "Korby" and one with "Michele"
Pirateheadbandmh2 - "Korby"
pirateprincessmh -"Michele"
mickeyminneporthole - with Our First Cruise as shown
Beauty and the Beast night deck - Magic 2012 Anniversary Cruise
mickeyminnie surf boards - Disney magic 2012
Korby on mickey Michele on Minnie
mmhearts - really like this one can you add "5th Anniversary"?
sunset beach walk - names in sand - Korby Michele
1st trip sorcerermh - take out first trip and put in "Korby"

I hope that is not too much!

I also wanted to ask if you can do teams on the 'sports heads' that you dont have shown. Looking for Texas A&M and TCU.

Can't wait - this is our first cruise and very excited.
if you need anything from me please let me know!!!

We printed ours on photo paper. It gave a nice glossy effect and we thought it looked better than card stock. As for the price, I'm not sure how paper and ink compare to having it done at a store but it was more convenient. We cut the magnet strips and glued them to the trimmed pictures.

Photo paper is a great idea! I didn't even think of it. Were you able to trim it around the designs by using photo paper? I cut all of mine with a scissor and an xacto knife so that are the shapes of whatever the picture is. Maybe if we ever go again and it's just us I'll use photo paper because I used A LOT of card stock!

It cut quite easily. Here is a pic of our daughters door.

ugh! should have read the suggestions here first-- I bought magnet paper at Staples and it was $13.50 for 4 sheets I've printed out several magnets for our door, but cut back drastically on what I was gonna do because of that high price!

Yikes!! We always upload them & get them printed at Target - super cheap....

To think that $13.50 doesn't include your printer ink either.....

I believe this is what you wanted
