Comments - Avery Labels = Magnetic Poetry Words

Vox on Aug 11, 2019:

This looks like a rewarding project! Thanks for sharing some cost-effective ways to do it. :)

This works great.  We made the margins as wide as possible, and put three spaces between each word.  Between the lines we changed the point size to 6.  When we cut our words up, they came out the same size as the official ones, and mixed in seamlessly.

What the hell is wrong with you fools?! I'm trying to add a link to a list of the 300 most common words in the English language -- a most useful tool for someone trying to make a set of magnetic words -- and your comment system is so uncooperative and frustrating that it makes me want to put my foot through the monitor! I'm using big chunks of my time being helpful, and this place is screwing with me! Fine!

I love this

Kewl...I have a Dymo label maker that prints black on white to make the words, and lots of junk magnets I've stashed because I figured one day I'd find something clever to do with them.  Thanks...something clever found!

The "ransom note" look is kewl, too, beccajo, but it might attract untoward attention if you plan to use your words at work.  ;o)

"magpo"  just has to suck it up,  unless someone tries to sell their creation.

One can also buy sheets of thin magnets with paper pre-glued to one side.  They come in standard paper sizes (e.g. 8.5 x 11) and are designed to go through your inkjet printer.

ooh! watch it! i used to work for magpo and they're quite touchy (as you can imagine) about copyright issues........

i would suggest cutting your words out of magazines and newspapers, like david bowie used to do. it makes your set totally unique, copyright friendly, and 100% recyled!
