Here in the mentalparentals household, we have a bit of a thing about magnets. Since A and I met, we’ve collected magnets from the different places we’ve visited, so we now have quite a collection. I’ve been given a fabulous opportunity to review some personalised magnets by PickStick – a UK company that can turn your treasured moments captured in photographs into magnets for your fridge door (or extractor fan hood as some are in our house)!
I found the website incredibly easy to use. After creating an account, you’re shown a grid of 9 blank rectangles on the right of the screen and options to upload photographs from your computer, Facebook account or Dropbox on the left. I don’t use Dropbox, so selected a handful of photo’s from both the computer and my Facebook account. The only slight issue I had with the website was that I wanted to change one of the photos, and it didn’t show that I’d selected the new photo on the preview. There wasn’t a further opportunity to preview my order either, but I figured I’d made the change so it’d be ok. As it turns out, it worked and the photo I wanted replaced had been when my magnets arrived so it wasn’t really a problem.
I received an email confirming my order within a few minutes and a further email the next day confirming they had been dispatched. Very fast turnaround which really is quite impressive, considering I only placed my order at 10pm!
The magnets arrived the following day in a cardboard envelope with a compliments slip detailing my order number. Because of the packaging, the postie managed to post them through the letterbox with our other post without problems – I don’t think anyone likes receiving a Royal Mail red card!
The magnets arrived in one sheet, as pictured above, and broke apart easily. O loved looking through the pictures I’d chosen and sticking them onto the fridge!
The magnets are of great quality, and because they are soft they won’t break if dropped on a tiled floor – which has happened to some of our other magnets. Very child-friendly which is great. The pictures are printed well, however some of the images are slightly grainy or pixelated. I wonder if that’s maybe because of the lower quality pictures that are uploaded to Facebook. I’m not sure.
On the whole, they’re a great product. I would definitely like to buy some more for family as stocking fillers for Christmas, and would also be a lovely present for friends and family for birthdays, etc too. Only £9.50 with free shipping.
