All my kitchen cabinets are white and magnetic and therefore the perfect surface for magnets. After years of hanging up cards, notes, etc. with neodymium magnets, I got bored with it. Additionally, I find it dangerous to use strong magnets due to the danger of swallowing - I have small children.
Thin magnetic tape for postcards & photosI looked around and found out that coloured magnetic tape (available in many colours) are perfect for making minimalistic frames for nice cards.
For this picture I used two pieces of magnetic tape 10 mm in a matt grey as a frame.
The same with this card from the Scottish Highlands. The frame turns it into a real eye-catcher.
I also tried this on my wall that I covered with magnetic paint, but the adhesive force of the magnetic tape is not strong enough on that surface, so I continue to use super magnets there.
Wide magnetic tape for thick cardsFor thicker cards or cardboard it takes a 2 cm wide magnetic tape so the card doesn't slide down. I especially like the colour contrast between pink and green.
Magnetic tape instead of adhesive tapeBut you can also use pieces of the 2 cm wide magnetic tape like an adhesive tape - with the difference that it doesn't damage the card.
I think the strips of this coloured magnetic tape would look very good on a black magnetic board as well.
