Description

What is a bookshelf
other than a treasure chest
for a curious mind
~ The Picsees.

As you might imagine we make lots n lots of wee little notes and scribbles...but it seems we lose more of them than we actually make. We've been looking for a solution to this particular problem for quite some time now. Then just the other day, while following the scent of some freshly baked cookies, we finally found it! The answer was in front of our noses all the time. Right there, up high on the refrigerator door was oodles of notes that our house humans wrote and they stuck them all to the fridge door with lovely little magnets. It was perfect! Unfortunately for us (but lucky for the human beans) we couldn't reach any of those magnets, so we had to make some ourselves and we are so glad we did cause they turned out beautifully! Much nicer than any of the ones our human beans have. We are really proud of our wee magnets, we've even made some extra ones for our shop in case you also need to put some important notes and scribble on your fridge! We hope you like them lots and lots ~:D

And if you want to see more of our art pictures, meet some of our other faerie friends or read a wee tale or two just follow this click: https://www.facebook.com/thepicsees
Of course, if you would rather read some “technical details” our human beans wrote you can find it all just below...but it’s very boring compared to our stories!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Details:


DIMENSIONS: approx 3.1 x 2.1 inches / 79 x 54 mm.
MATERIALS: Paper, metal, Magnetic sheet
FINISH: Gloss

This listing is for a rectangular fridge or refrigerator magnet and features a picture of our artwork entitled "Bookshelves". It is a flat-surfaced (approx 2mm thick) high quality magnet similar to those found in museum shops around the world. The artwork is printed in high-gloss on the front and a magnet is fixed to the back (see sample pictures above). The magnet itself is a good, strong magnet that will firmly stick to metal surfaces making it perfect for putting up notes, drawings, recipes, etc on your fridge or other metal surfaces.

Please Note: Great care is taken to keep the colour and tone in the sample pictures above as true to life as possible, but since every screen/device displays colours differently, the colour and tone displayed on your screen may be slightly different to that of the actual magnet.

This item was made with the help of Lanzfeld Editions in the Netherlands.

Your magnet will be carefully packaged (either in a plain paper envelope with addition bubble wrap or in a padded envelope - depending on quantity and destination) and sent from Amsterdam in the Netherlands with PostNL, which is the Dutch postal service. The Postage charges for all items in this shop are kept as low as possible by using their standard service and reflect the actual cost of sending the parcel to you (approx weight of this parcel - 35grams).
Please note that the specified packaging may differ when multiple items are ordered and in some instance items may be sent in more than one parcel.
For more details about our postage & packaging please refer to the Shipping section of this page.

If you are unsure about anything or require any additional information please contact us with any question you might have before placing an order and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

OUR LITTLE SHOP IS GETTING GREENER!
We've been hard at work sourcing new suppliers & materials to make our shop more environmentally friendly and we are very glad to say we've been making some good progress!
All our new edition art prints are printed on Hahnemühle's Environmentally focused & resource saving Bamboo paper. We've also sourced some lovely cardboard that's made from 100% recycled paper (which has been awarded the Blue Angel Ecolabel - blauer-engel.de/en) for our new range of postcards.

But it's not just our products that are going green, it's our packaging materials too! All our padded envelopes are certified by the Rainforest Alliance (rainforest-alliance.org), the padding itself is made from 100% recycled plastic (PE) and the paper from both our padded and plain envelopes are approved by the FSC (fsc.org) for being made from responsible sources. The cardboard we use to protect our art prints are all cut from pre-used boxes and we have just sourced brown packaging paper (also used to package our art prints) that is approved by the EU Ecolabel (ecolabel.eu).

We know there is always room for improvement and we'll keep looking for alternatives until our whole shop is 100% green!
