DigiMag Duplex offers smooth feeding, superb ink adhesion and image quality, and can be easily perforated or die cut. This innovative prod- uct was created by Magnum Magnetics employees Cameron Fouss and Ritch Lefevre. Fouss says he was inspired to create DigiMag Duplex while in an airport book store. "The store had magnet and postcard displays next to each other. I wanted to create a product that was printable on both sides, yet still magnetic. Currently, the only option is to cover the picture on the post card with a magnet, or deal with a black magnetic surface on the back, which will not show print." DigiMag Duplex is perfect for many applications, including direct mail campaigns, post cards, save-the-date magnets, greeting cards, graduation invites, and even sports cards.
