Practical Uses for Custom Magnets

Isn’t it difficult to keep track of the many chores and service dates that come with homeownership? We definitely think so!

The good news is that custom magnets and stickers are an excellent way to stay on top of rotating and recurring tasks at home.

Today, we’ll share our favorite practical uses for magnets and stickers around the house.

Vehicle Oil Change Reminders

When you get your vehicle’s oil changed, place one of our no-residue clear stickers on your windshield. We’ll print a custom sticker designed by you; just leave a space where you can jot down the date of service.

Despite the importance of frequent oil changes, not all oil change service centers provide this handy, visible reminder. If your local place doesn’t, we encourage you to come prepared with your own sticker.

Water Heater Service Reminders

If you’re like most homeowners, you can’t recall the date you last had your water heater serviced. However, we can create a reminder magnet or sticker that works well with a whiteboard marker.

All you have to do is place it on your water heater, then jot down your most recent service date along with your service company’s contact info.

Take it a step further by having us print the phone number for your favorite repair company right on the sticker or magnet.

We hope you never have a water heater emergency, but if you do, you’ll be glad you have the number right where you need it.

HVAC Service Reminders

Depending on your home’s location and type of system, your HVAC should be serviced every 6 – 12 months. Our custom reminder magnets or stickers are a great way to ensure that you remember when you last had this work completed, or alternatively, by which date you need to schedule it next.

Simply attach it to your HVAC system, then take a glance anytime you need a reminder.

Clean and Dirty Indicators for your Dishwasher

Dishwashers are used daily in most homes, but it can be tricky to determine whether it’s been run or not—especially during the whirlwind of activity that occurs during the morning routine.

The solution is a simple magnet that you’ll place on your dishwasher. Like a domino, you’ll want one half to say “Clean,” while the opposite side says “Dirty.” Flip it 180 degrees, and suddenly it’s a breeze to figure out if your favorite coffee mug is ready to use on this rushed Tuesday morning.

If you have any custom magnet or sticker ideas in mind for your own home, Blue Bee Printing is here to create them for you! No project is too large or too small. Our extensive product offerings ensure that we’ll have the perfect material for any application.

10 Creative Uses for Magnets that will Make Your Life Easier

10 Creative Uses for Magnets that will Make Your Life Easier

Today we will explore 10 creative uses for magnets that can make your everyday life easier. At Blue Bee Printing, we have many custom options for magnets and we can customize them to fit your needs. Some of the options available to you are: die cut magnets, round magnets, oval magnets, rounded corner magnets, square magnets, rectangle magnets, and magnets sheets. Blue Bee Printing can also help customers turn photographs into customized magnets. Whether you plan to use magnets for fun or work, we have found that there are virtually endless ways to use magnets both around the home and in the office.

Some of the ways our customers are using our custom magnets include:

  1. Providing entertainment and education for children by giving them a set of magnets that have letters and numbers on them. The various combinations of letters and numbers allow children to be creative while being eco-friendly and not using paper pads all of the time when practicing the basics. Plus, magnets can be easily stored on a magnetic surface, such as a board or fridge.
  2. Hanging up clothing in the closet, using metal hangers. This reuses metal hangers you might have acquired during a shopping trip and the magnets prevent clothing from falling off the railing in your closet.
  3. Finding metal studs in a wall. This can be very helpful if you do not have a stud finder close by or if you are helping out a friend who doesn’t own a stud finder.
  4. Showcasing photographs of projects you have either already completed or those you plan to do in the future. You can hang these photographs on a fridge or on your garage’s metal workbench. This is also a good way to show off your children’s artwork.
  5. Keeping pins and needles in a safe place for crafting (inside a non-ferrous jar). You can also use the magnet to gather up all of your pins and needles when you have finished a project and the sharp objects are scattered. This method will help ensure that you don’t miss any; especially important for those who have young children or pets.
  6. Picking up nails and screws which often end up scattered after a project. Many wives will be much happier if their spouses keep the garage or work area cleaner!
  7. Keeping an extra set of keys underneath your vehicle, secured with a magnetic box, in case you accidentally lock your keys in your vehicle.
  8. Creating a vision board by applying special magnetic paint to a surface. Once the paint is dry, you can use magnets to hold inspirational photographs, future plans, maps, and more on the vision board.
  9. Adhering steel framing squares on the outside of toolboxes. This can provide easy and quick access to allow for gluing magnets to the sides of the toolbox.
  10. Storing knives in a safe manner – create your own magnetic knife holder and stop fumbling with sharp knives in a drawer. Not only is this a safer alternative, but it will keep your knives sharper, longer.
