Exhibition - Company history

For our company anniversary we came up with something very special: We had an entire office wall painted with magnetic paint and depicted milestones of our company history with magnets.

How to

Necessary material:
1) Edit photos as desired with a picture editing software and print them on photo paper.
2) Place magnetic sheet on cutting surface.
3) Carefully remove protective film from the magnetic sheet.
4) Carefully place the photo on the sheet and flatten it out from one side to the other to avoid air bubbles. Press down firmly.
5) Cut the boarder of the magnetic sheet with a cutter and measuring stick or cut out small photos individually.
6) Place the photos on the magnetic paint.
Big advantage: The photos can be easily removed and exchanged, if the space gets tight or the information is no longer valid.
A similar magnetic application is the project Make your own photo magnets.

Elements of the chronicle

We highlighted the following supermagnete key points of the past 15 years with magnetic sheets:
  • Milestones
  • Staff
  • Order volume
  • Events
  • Assortment growth


The most important innovations at supermagnete from 2003 to 2018 (new shops, relocations) were depicted on the magnetic paint as text boxes.
For the timeline 2003-2018 under the pictures we attached several metres of white magnetic tape 40mm on the magnetic paint and added year dates.
Since 2018 we have replaced the white magnetic tape with printable magnetic labels. They look more professional and can be moved around on the wall.


Each employee was placed at the year when he or she started working at the company.

Event photos

Special company events (field trips, dinners, parties) were also captured on the wall.

Assortment growth

We were able to increase our assortment from year to year. New magnets and products were placed below the timeline directly on the magnetic paint - no magnetic sheet necessary.
New magnets
On the far right side of the chronicle we had room for new magnets that we recently added to our shop:
Since the fall of 2013, we have added many more new products, such as magnetic paper, which is even easier to use than self-adhesive magnetic sheet.
