Townprint first produced fridge magnets back in the early 1980’s. We had observed at open house displays that the lady of the house had tidied everything up, put everything it its place… and there were magnets on the fridge door. We recognised that this was acceptable practice and so decided to start producing them.
First lot we did was for a local panelbeater, who wanted flyers. I suggested he buy magnets and put one near the driver’s door handle on any car he thought needed to see him. The result was huge, he came back, and back, for more, and more.
Magnets can be any size, full colour or single colour, and any shape you desire. We think that the fridge (or filing cabinet) magnet is one of the best advertising methods.
