Fridge Magnets: The gift that keeps on giving.

The fridge magnet can be considered a “free” gift, something of value for nothing. Fridge magnets are used in nearly every household.

There is no other form of advertising, that is retained for as long and in such a prominent place as a refrigerator magnet.

The impact of the fridge magnet.

The impact of fridge magnets is widespread throughout the world and more than 80% of all households in developed nations have magnets on their fridge.

It is estimated lifespan is anywhere between 5-10 years and the number of times a refrigerator door is viewed in an average household is approximately 40 per day, meaning that each magnet makes approximately 14,600 impressions per year.

Magnets are also known to be collectable items for collectors to add to their fridge magnet collection.

Why do people collect magnets?

A person who collects magnets is known as a memomagnetist from the Latin word “memoriale” meaning memory and the Greek word “magnetis” meaning magnetic.

Magnets are one of the most popular souvenirs, they serve as a pleasant “memory” of their travels and adventures.

Many magnets have practical uses as they are attached to useful items such as bottle openers and planners but there is also the decorative kind which is simply used to add a splash of colour and style to kitchen décor.
