Announcement   I create beautiful handcrafted framed magnetic dry-erase memo boards in designer styles and eye catching themes. Each board comes with 4 matching gem magnets and various sizes are available.

My magnet boards are set in hand chosen frames which are cut, assembled, and painted or stained to my specifications on request. The frame complements the designer background or specially chosen theme. An acrylic overlay is laid on top to work as a dry erase surface so you can write on the board as well as use it with magnets. Hand crafted coordinating gem magnets are also included. I hand make every magnetic dry-erase board so the styles are chosen by me as well as the design of the matching magnets. Styles are available to match your home's decor or a theme that speaks to your favorite places, interests or hobbies, and custom orders are welcomed. I can find just about any theme or design. There really is a board for everyone!

This is a very creative way to hang notes, reminders, and kid's art, or write lists and "to-do's" that is much more appealing than a dull white board. In addition, when the board has nothing hanging or written on it, it looks beautiful! Makes a great personalized gift as well.

***Hanging hardware comes already attached to the back and is two sturdy sawtooth hangers.

***Highest quality neodymium magnets are used for the gem magnets. No wimpy magnets here!

***High gauge acrylic is used for durability and resistance to clouding. Any dry erase marker works on the dry erase surface and wipes clean with a soft cloth or tissue.

***I only work with wood frames that are cut, assembled, and painted or stained per my order.

I can usually ship boards within one week, and ship all over the world.

Big week in my etsy shop. Heading out to ship these beauties! Enjoy everyone!

Custom order done recently and turned out so great! Mom wanted a beach themed board to organize chores for her three beach loving boys. All the sections had to be exactly equal so no fighting! Haha! Design your own today!

About

Form and Function Come Together!

The Story

I’ve always been a maker. That’s what happens when a technically-minded kid is raised by an artist. Though I didn’t inherit my mother’s drawing and painting skills, she instilled in me a deep appreciation for the utility of creativity — it’s how we learn, solve problems, express ourselves, and better and beautify our world. The more I explored, the more I found that my own sense of creativity thrived best in the overlap of form and function. That paved the way for my love of cooking, a creative outlet that I eventually transformed into a successful career in Food Science.

Then, one day in 2008, my nephew asked me to make something to help him keep track of the teams in the major league baseball post-season. A niche request, to be sure, but necessity is the mother of invention, right? I created a baseball-themed magnetic board, complete with a set of miniature helmet magnets to represent the teams. Each helmet could be moved freely through the ranks as the season progressed. He was thrilled! The board was exactly what he needed, and he uses it to this day.

It was so satisfying to create something that not only helped solve a practical problem, but was also pleasant to look at and fun to use — it was the perfect blend of left- and right-brained thinking. I realized that, with a few tweaks, this board concept could be tremendously useful to other people, too. So I set about adapting the design into a magnetic and dry-erase memo board format, styling each iteration into gifts to suit the unique tastes of the people in my life. All were met with rave reviews; people were as happy to receive these gifts as I was to make them. “Ya know," they said, "you should sell these.”

MagnaMemos was born.

I never dreamed that the board I made my nephew would one day lead to me starting my own business, but I am so grateful that it did. These days, my time is split between my full-time career in Food Science and the adventure of running my small business. MagnaMemos now has a dedicated studio space where every board is crafted, packaged, and shipped by hand with the same care and attention I invested in those first boards for my friends and family. I love what I do, and it’s an honor to share the journey with you.

Thank you for being a part of the MagnaMemos story!

— Karen

Welcome to my Etsy shop. I know you find a handcrafted magnetic dry-erase memo board that you love! I am located in Seattle, WA, and ship all over the world.

ALL of my boards are magnetic and dry-erase and come with a set of four coordinating glass gem magnets. They are manufactured with the highest quality materials I can find to offer a product that will last for many years to come. Please check out my reviews to hear what satisfied customers have to say:

https://www.etsy.com/your/shops/magnamemos/reviews?ref=shop_info

Caring for your memo board is easy as dry erase can be cleaned off with a tissue or soft cloth. That's it!

Each board comes ready to hang with two sawtooth hangers pre-installed on the back. They are easy to hang and hang very securely with nails or picture hanging hooks.

If you have special requests for magnet styles, different color or style of frame, additional magnets, embellishment requests, or anything else, please let me know. My boards are very interchangable, so just ask, and I will do my best to accomodate.

Dry erase markers are available for sale, just check out the listing and choose your color. These bright (some flourescent) colors show up very well on busy or patterned backgrounds, so don't be afraid to choose a board that has some pattern to it as you can see the writing when using this style of dry erase pens! If you would like to see writing on any board, just convo me, and I can write on one and send you a photo. But please note, that ANY dry erase pen you have at home will work on my boards. Here is the listing to the dry erase pens I sell.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/171355214/dry-erase-pendry-erase-marker-for-dry?ref=shop_home_active_1

For more details on how the board works, my materials, use and care, or process, please see the additional information section below.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Check
Payment
Paypal transactions, direct credit cards, Etsy gift cards, and checks accepted. Orders that are paid for by check will be held until I receive the check and it clears. Then they will be shipped.

I must receive payment on custom orders before doing any work.

I collect WA state sales tax.
Shipping
My method of shipment for domestic (US) orders is USPS parcel post which takes approximately 7-10 days post production (production time is usually 3-5 business days).

International orders ship USPS first class mail or priority mail international for boards larger than 12" (30.48 cm) x 12" (30.48 cm). International orders can take up to 3 weeks depending on customs clearance. Unfortunately, delays in customs clearance are unpredictable, and I cannot be held responsible for delays in shipment due to customs clearance delays. I will do everything I can to help track the shipment, so please contact me if you have questions.

USPS is the most economical and reliable way I have found to ship my items. If you would like an item shipped via a faster method, please contact me. I have a listing available for purchase in my shop for expedited shipment or I can invoice you for the additional cost.

My Christmas holiday cut off for custom photo boards is the first week of December, so if you are interested in that type of board, I must have your photo before then.

My Christmas holiday cut off for international orders is also the first week of December.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please let me know. I will be happy to work with you to find you something you love, modify what you already purchased, or refund your money if it comes to that. Usually we can work something out, so please do get in touch if you're not happy.

If an item comes damaged, please let me know immediately. I will request photos of the damaged item so I can file a complaint with the shipper.
Additional policies and FAQs
❥❥❥How is this memo board magnetic and dry-erase? How does it work?

My boards are like any picture frame you have at home, but with a twist that makes it beautiful and functional. The design you see within the frame is specially adhered to custom cut metal that makes the board magnetic so you can use the included magnets or any magnets you have at home to post notes. Laid over the design is a sheet of high gauge acrylic (not glass) that allows you to write on it with any dry erase marker.

Caring for your memo board is easy. Just wipe off writing with a soft cloth or tissue.

❥❥❥Can I request a custom theme or design?

YES! Custom orders are welcome! If you have a theme that you are thinking about, just choose the "design your own" listing in my shop (link below) and let me know the details of what type of board you would like. You can choose your frame, request your design, and indicate what images you would like for your magnets. I will submit three designs to start and we can work together to choose the one that is perfect for you.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/171367438/magnet-board-dry-erase-board-magnetic?ref=shop_home_active_18

Then I will bring it all together and create a custom board just for you. Price is $50.00 plus shipping. Magnets included. Lead time is 2 weeks.
_____________________________________________________________________

❥❥❥If I send you a photo, can you make it into a board?

YES, you can create a custom photo board! Just send me a good quality photo (one from a camera or cell phone) and I can blow it up into a 12" x 12" board with the frame of your choice. Please see the attached listing. Price is $55.00 plus shipping. Magnets of your choice included. Lead time is 2 weeks.

I have three size options available in my shop, and any of them can be custom designed.

1. My standard is a 12" (30.48 cm) x 12" (30.48 cm) and you can see some selections here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/magnamemos?section_id=7007137&ref=shopsection_leftnav_5

https://www.etsy.com/shop/magnamemos?section_id=12067023&ref=shopsection_leftnav_2
_____________________________________________________________________

❥❥❥How do I hang my board?

The board can be hung on any wall using large head nails or small to medium size brass picture hanging hooks. Each board comes with two sawtooth hangers that are already attached on the back, and since you will be interacting with the board when it is hung, using hooks usually works best.
