15 Cool And Unusual Magnets For Your Fridge

Did you know that the first refrigerator magnet patent was obtained by William Zimmerman of St. Louis, Missouri, only in the early 1970s’ [1] Zimmerman patented the idea of small, colored, cartoon magnets to be used for decorative display and convenience. Not so much time ago, nobody even knew such thing, and now it can be found in everyone’s home!

Used to post items or simply as decoration, refrigerator magnets come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, and are popular among collectors – for example Louise J. Greenfarb of Henderson, Nevada, has over 32,000 different refrigerator magnets!

Refrigerator magnets are also useful in an advertising world. It is estimated that magnets are used on at least 80% of household refrigerators and most households view their fridge door over 40 times per day. Keep it in mind when planning your next ad campaign!
