“Which one should I buy?”
“How do you make them?”
“How can something so small be such a magically magnificent accessory?”
Okay, so maybe we made that last one up, but for the record, our name tags are manufactured so quickly that magic is really the only possible explanation. But believe it or not, today’s post actually has nothing to do with magic and really has everything to do with science.
(Cue the Bill Nye The Science Guy 90’s theme song)
Because out of all of the questions we get on a regular basis, the questions about magnets – how do they work? How are they made? Are they truly every bit as strong as the time old tradition of the standard pin backing?
That last one is by far the most interesting because no matter how many times we say it, or put it in writing there’s always that image of a name tag proving itself to be so magical that it disappears completely and no one wants that.
So just how reliable are the trendy new magnetic backings for your custom name tags? Extremely reliable. Will they really stay in place all day? Absolutely! How do we know that? Because we know how it’s made.
While there are various types of magnets in existence the ones we actually see around us on a daily basis are typically man-made and not natural. Natural magnets have been being used for thousands of years and are still being used for tons of things today even if we can’t see them. Probably one of the most impressive examples of the strength of magnets are the super fast monorail trains that actually levitate due to the sheer force of the opposite magnetic poles.
But not all magnets are created equally – in fact with all the different types of magnets out there, the actual production of them can be quite different from each other. According to rare-earth-magnets.com, ceramic magnets are made using a composite of iron oxide and barium (strontium carbonate) and are made by the act of pressing and sintering. And while yes, ceramic magnets are the ones used on the backs of refrigerator magnets, these magnets are produced with varying levels of magnetic power.
