Celebrate World Photography Day with magnets!
This history of World Photography Day
World Photography Day is a day where we appreciate the art and origin of photography. This day was introduced by the French government on August 19th, 1839 as a gift free to the world. Nicéphore Niépce, was a French inventor, who is credited as the inventor of photography and a pioneer in that field. The process Niépce made took 8 hours for an image to develop. This then led to his associate Louis Daguerre inventing the photographic process daguerreotype, this process took less time and provide much clearer images. The photography process has come a long way since then and is something each of us do on a regular basis.

Photography display ideas with magnets:
Chicken wire, adhesive Neodymium magnets & Neodymium disc magnets
Create your own photo display with some magnets and some chicken wire! With pillars or some strong scissor cut the chicken wire to your acquired size. Use the measurements to mark on your wall where you would like the fixture point to be. Then with our adhesive Neodymium magnets, peel and stick them on your markings. We always advise to leave the adhesive to cure for 24-32 hours before using. Next place the chicken wire up against the fixture points to secure into place. Finally, with some of our Neodymium disc magnets, simply place the photos up to the wire and use the magnet to pin the photo into place. For an added touch why not thread some fairy lights through the wire to create a more eye-catching display!
Ferrite magnets offer excellent value for money when pull strength is not the most important factor. Magnetised on one side with a layer of self-adhesive foam on the other. With versatile foam adhesive, they are perfect for turning pictures and mementos into fridge magnets. Simply peel off the adhesive cover and stick to the backs of your photos.
