This month Magnum Magnetics Corporation unveiled their new product, DigiMag Duplex at GRAPH EXPO.
DigiMag Duplex is two-sided printable magnet, featuring a high quality printable matte white polypropylene surface on both sides. DigiMag Duplex offers smooth feeding, superb ink adhesion and image quality, and can be easily perforated or die cut. This innovative product was created by Magnum Magnetics employees, Cameron Fouss and Ritch Lefevre.
Inventor Cameron Fouss says he was inspired to create DigiMag Duplex while in an airport book store. "The store had magnet and postcard displays next to each other. I wanted to create a product that was printable on both sides, yet still magnetic. Currently, the only option is to cover the picture on the post card with a magnet, or deal with a black magnetic surface on the back, which will not show print." Inspired by Magnum Magnetics' current line of printable magnets, Fouss and the Product Development team at Magnum Magnetics began creating samples of the prototype.
Magnum Magnetics' DigiMag Duplex product is perfect for many applications, including direct mail campaigns, post cards, save-the-date magnets, greeting cards, graduation invites, and even sports cards.
"Magnum manufactures this printable magnet at a thickness and strength that passes USPS regulations. The magnet passes the stiffness test and thickness tests needed for USPS, allowing the double-printable surface magnet to be printed and mailed as a postcard," says co-inventor, Ritch Lefevre, National Sales Executive for Magnum Magnetics.
DigiMag Duplex is patent pending.
