Door magnets - where did you have yours printed?

For those who did not print your own door magnets, where did you go to have them printed? I don't have an inkjet printer and all the local places I checked couldn't print them either. Thanks.

Easy!! Upload them to your local photo printer - we upload to Target via Shutterfly. They are 19 cents for a 4x6. Then, using a coupon, we use a magnet roll with sticky back & stick on the photo & then cut it out. Cheap, easy & prettier than magnet paper in your printer!!!

Were the local copy shops balking at the magnetic paper, or were they worried about copyright infringement? If you can find someone to print the images on regular paper with a color printer, you could have the the pages laminated and glue magnetic strips (available at Michael's or other crafty store) on the back.

If you're part of a DIS meets group for your particular cruise, perhaps one of your fellow passengers with a friendly printer would do yours for you?

The printing places only had laser printers so it did not have to do with copyrights. I thought about adding the magnets strips but thought the magnetic sheets would look cleaner and neater. Thanks for your response.

Open up a Walmart photo account. They will give you 25 free prints. : ) YEP works perfect. 4 x 6

I then purchase the plastic magnet sleeves so i do not have to cut...bla bla.

FYI I don't use magnet "strips." This is what I get at Michaels - it's $9.99 & I use a coupon for 40 or 50% off. It's a continuous sheet/roll.

I've never had any issues uploading them/printing at Target with regards to copyrights. Usually, we reuse our magnets from cruise to cruise & do 1 new cruise-specific 8x10.

ETA: I'm in no way saying my way is the only way. It's just super cheap & they look very pretty!!! I can't imagine paying for those magnetic sheets and printer ink when pics are under 20 cents (even the 8x10 is only $2.89) and that magnet roll is $5 after my coupon.

Walmart, Snapfish, and Shutterfly can print magnets, they won't do copyrighted images though.

Would you mind to answer a question for me? When I try to upload the magnet disigns to Walgreens as a 4x6 (from Photobucket), the little picture it shows me on the Walgreens site has the top and bottom of the Mickey head cut off - will it actually print that way, or will it print right and the little picture is just off??? (sorry, technologically challenged here!)

I don't have the answer, but I'm glad you asked the question, because I'm having the same problem. I think it does print as shown, because I tried a test print on my printer at home, and it came out cut off.

Also, some of my prints look kind of blurry. Any fix for that?

Make sure your source image is a 4x6 or it will get cropped. See what happens if you choose 5x7; if it doesn't get cropped, your source image needs adjusted.

Hope this helps!
