"Dear Magically Magnetic,
In our home, we have a long wall in our hallway covered with family photos all framed and hung with nails, wire and hooks. We decided to change the display method to a magnetic wall and chose your Magically Magnetic additive for the job. We ordered two gallons worth of the additive and I am pleased to say that it arrived very quickly. We found it worked best to apply five coats of the magnetic paint to our wall. We tested it with a heavy wooden frame with 60-mil thick adhesive sheet magnet on the back and it stuck fast. Next we did our finish coat in the yellow paint without the additive like was described in the directions. Finally, when all was dry, we hung our pictures. They all stuck perfectly. It was a breeze to do the arranging. Moving the pictures on the wall was so easy. If we didn't like the placement, we just moved the pictures. Finally, it was done. We took pictures of the wall to show you. The total was 261 pictures weighing a total of 175 pounds. The largest framed photo was 11" by 14" with the smallest being only 2" by 3". The only pieces hung on nails were a pair of 2 foot by 2 foot mirrors.
Your product delivered everything promised. We are very satisfied and extremely happy with our results. The magnetic paint was easy to mix, easy to apply and easy to use. The hardest part of the whole process was taking off all the hardware, hooks and wire from the frames and patching all the holes in the wall. Our family and friends are impresed with the wall and can't believe it is just magnets that hold it all in place. We actually have to pull down frames to demonstrate how it works. Thank you for your excellent products and customer service. Please feel free to use our photos and names on your web site. We recommend your products to anyone.
We have decided to do it again on another smaller wall. Please ship us one quarts worth of the magnetic paint additive and a 10 pack of 60 mil magnet in 8" by 10" sheets."
1. First there was one. This sample heavy wooden frame was used to test the holding power of the magnetic paint.
2. Then there were many.
3. One by one, their magnetic wall gallery grew. That is Pat and Doug's photo in the top right corner. They are now famous. Just think, you could have done this and it could have been your wall and pictures seen worldwide. It's not too late to send in your photo and letter.
Kelly F. from Lynn Haven, FL
As always, excellent service and a great products! The paint and magnets work perfectly together. Thank you so much for making it easy to display my preschooler's artwork, as well as, invitations and other important correspondence. It makes him feel so proud to see his creations hanging on the wall.
Martin N. from Rockville Centre, NY
"As promised, I am enclosing a photo of my office, complete with my family's most important photos and all where I can see them everyday. They can be added, subtracted and moved anywhere. They adorn my wall all because of your Magically Magnetic paint. Thanks!"
Kim S. from Hastings-On-Hudson, NY
"Dear Mr. Lytle,
My second order from lyt.com just arrived today. I am thrilled with your service and products.
I have magnetized several surfaces in my apartment using your magnetic paint additive, and the results are spectacular. I painted over the magnetized primer with my final coat on a finished wall last week, and everyone who comes to visit is duly impressed with the way my collection of photographs floats over a beautiful and colorful, painted surface. The effect is quite magical.
Personally, I'm incredibly pleased and proud to have found such an innovative and superb product that is not only every bit as impressive as its advertising promises, but that is also made in America. I have friends who grew up in Pennsylvania steel towns and tell tales of incredible hardship as manufacturing jobs in the region moved overseas. Thank you for finding a way to provide a quality product, excellent service, and local jobs.
I wish your company all the best of luck for continued growth and success. If the reaction from my friends is any indication, your business will continue to find and please new waves of customers.
Best regards from an avid fan."
Gloria N. from Hartford, CT
"I painted a wall in my son's room with your Magically Magnetic Paint. I wanted to be able to change decorations in his room as he grew. It worked out really great. I found a company on the internet that sold a similar magnetic paint in a ready mixed form in cans, but when I figured out how much I would need, their price was through the roof. Your additive allowed me to do my whole room at a price that was cheaper than just their shipping price alone. Your additive was much cheaper and my son loves the free magnets that you sent with my order.
Here is an idea that worked really well for us. My son had a write and wipe board that we had hanging on a nail before we painted his room. I followed the directions on your site for magnetizing a picture frame and put 60 mil thick adhesive magnet on the back of his board. I held it to the wall and was amazed at how well it stuck. Now it stays put, solidly mounted on the wall, much better than when we had it hanging on a nail. Best of all, no more nail holes in the wall and it doesn't fall off."
We did a test of a similar write and wipe board on our magnetic paint wall. See how it's done, including pictures and instructions.
Karen H. from Buffalo, NY
"I just completed a project in a child's playroom. First off, it was a pleasure doing business with your company. I received my package immediately after ordering. Thank you. Now getting to the magnetic paint - I LOVE IT. I needed to cover a large area, so I painted strips instead of a whole section. I was able to do 5 - 2" strips on 2 major walls. It looks great and my boys love hanging all the art work they do on the wall. No more tape - no mess. It is great. Thanks for a great product & wonderful customer service. I am thinking of where else i can use another can of this, so be waiting for another order soon. Have a great day."
Tamara B. from Romeoville, IL
"I went to google and used the search term magnetic paint. I chose your product because the website was well done. I also liked the Tuxedo Black frames as my project was to paint a laundry room. Then I put up a bunch of black and white photos of family and friends. It turned out pretty good even though I am a poor painter. Now doing laundry is more enjoyable while seeing all my favorite photos in the process. Thanks."
April K. from Burlington, NC
"Originally I was looking for magnetic paint similar to the pre-mixed paint I had already bought, but at a lower price. I was skeptical about getting the additive because the pre-mixed stuff was very difficult to stir up, so I thought mixing your product would be more difficult - but surprise - it was easier than re-mixing the pre-mixed stuff. The pre-mixed stuff is dark grayish-black and was hard to cover with my finish paint. It cost even more for additional paint to cover with my light finish color. I was excited because with yours, I could choose the color of the primer to mix with the additive. I choose white and the magnetic paint stayed white. I was also excited because your product is less expensive and you actually get more magnetic paint. I expected your product to save me money, but I didn't realize that it was going to save me so much time too!!
I ordered a small amount of your magnetic paint additive the first time - mixed it up, and it worked great. This is my second order and I look forward to receiving it!"
Bryan W. from Soquel, CA
"The order just arrived today. Very fast!! I am glad to buy directly from your company. My local drug store used to carry your magnetic frames where I would buy them. When the drug store changed to a corporate chain, they were no longer stocking them and had another 'photo pocket' that I did not like as much. It is actually less expensive to buy directly in bulk from you. I have a four year old whose photo is on the refrigerators of both grandmas and aunts and uncles. I was also pleased to see the other products available, which will come in handy as the little one wants to put up her artwork everywhere.
Thank you again,
PS: Nice work with the EMT-ALERT, free printable sheet. I work as a firefighter/paramedic and yes, we look for that kind of information and it does come in handy."
Sue W. from Perrysville, OH
"Our local fire department has handed out your EMT-ALERTs that can be displayed magnetically on a refrigerator. They gave one to each household. How I love this idea! In fact I like it so well I was wondering if I could purchase additional EMT-ALERTs for distant relatives. Enclosed is a self-addressed envelope for your reply. They will make great Christmas presents!"
Millie P. from Oakmont, IL
"I found a beautiful Christmas shopping bag at a local Dollar Store and my daughter just loved the snowman pictured on the bag. I thought the side of the bag with many snowmen would make a nice poster for her room on her magnetic wall, so I bought some bags. When I got home, I trimmed the folded edges off the poster on the side of the bag and mounted it with six of your Technostryd rare earth magnets. I also cut the other side of the bag apart for separate snowmen magnets and stuck 20-mil thick self-adhesive sheet magnet to the backs. I then trimmed off the edges again to get a clean edge with the magnet going all the way to each side. These separate snowmen magnets could be used anywhere on the wall or the fridge for inexpensive winter decorations. My daughter loved them. I'm sending you one of the bags we bought so you can try it yourself. Maybe you can tell your customers how easily it was done."
Bryan H. from Inverness, IL
"Sorry I did not send this to you sooner. I want to drop you a line and tell you how happy I am with your service and product. Today's retail establishments such as Home Depot, Wal-Mart, etc, etc, (very long list), have FAILED. I grew up with one on one service and I am finding the web, although it is not face to face, is providing me with smaller companies that really want to provide service! Keep doing what you are doing. I passed your information on to my HVAC contractor telling them that they should provide your company information to every installation. Thanks."
Sandra W. from Long Island, NY
"I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you that I really like your picture frames. I bought my first ones while on a trip to my daughter's house. The craft store in her town sold them, but when I went back the next year, your frames were gone and another brand of a similar type were in their place. The replacements were thin and cheap looking. They were curled up at the edges and didn't even lay flat in the display at the store. Well, I told the clerk what I thought of the imitation frames. She apologized, saying that when their supply of Lytle frames ran out, they didn't know where to get any more and tried a new company. The store manager didn't like the new frames either. When I got home, I sent a letter to the store manager with your address. Now my daughter can buy them again locally. The manager told her that they really sell well and he's keeping your address safe. You can send my commission check to..."
Dawn C. from Dulles, VA
"Hello wonderful Magnet People!
I wanted to let you know that I received my order today. Don't worry that you think it took so long, I live in the Caribbean and mail takes a while to get here.
Anyway, I wanted to tell you that these (magnetic pocket style photo frames) are the best things ever!! They are so well made and very snappy looking on my fridge. I can't tell you how much I like them. In fact, be looking for another order from me in the next couple months!
Thank you so much for your timely service and great product. I will be sure to share with my friends where I got them."
Dorothy H. from Charleston, NC
"I googled the words magnetic photo frame, and you had, hands down, the best price. Even with shipping, you were still cheaper than a regular store, you offered the sizes I needed and were cheaper than the other websites.
My entire refrigerator is covered with photos of family and friends. The photos are in hard acrylic frames with small magnets on the back. They often fall or get knocked off onto the floor. In our old home, the floor was covered in tiny dents where the frames had landed corner down. When we moved, I added additional magnets to the back of each frame. It helped some. Now we have a baby who loves to pull the frames off the fridge and chew on them. I am worried about small magnet pieces coming off and her choking on them. Your frames solve both problems, so I am replacing all of them."
Gene J. from Mesa, AZ
"It is essential at least for me to be able to use your online orderform. The added free gifts are very useful - like the 4" x 6" frame. Super! Thanks. I NEVER buy frames at the drugstore anymore. It's not worth the expense, nor the looking around for the right frames. I just order from you and have NEVER been disappointed.
I've been able to start a tradition of sending magnetized framed photos to my family back east. I love doing it and am glad your company helps me do that very easily. I just tried the magnetic paint for the first time. (Gotta say I was doubtful it would work.) But it seems to be functioning very well. I am very pleased with my magnetized sewing room wall.
I also ordered and shipped some frames to my sister back east - with a description of how she can use your site to get a wall going for her first grandchildren's pictures. I'm thinking she will find your products useful and your site a great way to get what she needs to display her pride and joy."
Edna S. from Palo Alto, CA
Thank you for the update and for your excellent service. In response to your request to share my experience with your Fridge-Friendly Picture Frames and your company, it goes back to the early 90s, when I found your frames at a 30-min photo in Millburn, NJ. It was an instant bond. In 1995 we moved to Palo Alto CA, and I had a local store order them from you, until they closed, a few years ago. I have used your magnets for myself and as gifts, for family and friends, who often send requests for more. When traveling to Israel, Australia, etc., they make the best hostess gifts and Thank you gifts, complete with a photo of the hosts, etc.
People remember me by my gifts, because they find them to be so useful, for holding notes, as well, and even a small notebook for to-do lists. For one Christmas party at which I wanted to give a small gift to a dozen people whom I didn't know well, if at all, I used one of your Pocket Magnetic frames in which the insert was a picture of us, holiday greetings, and a message to replace the insert with the receiver's favorite photo, for their own fridge. It was a big hit. All I can say is one can never be too rich, too thin, or have too many Magically Magnetic picture-holders."
Yes, Edna, we couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for writing.
Audrey T. from Hamburg, NY
"Please send me 20 of your 4 x 6 white satin magnetic frames with the enclosed check. Thank you. I have given your information to family and friends for years. Our refrigerator door and sides are full with wonderful pictures and memories."
Brian S. from San Diego, CA
"I bought some of your freezer frames from a photo shop in San Diego that is now out of business. Someone once told me that if I ever find something that I really like, I should buy a lifetime supply of it. The company would probably stop making it. I was so happy to find your frames are still for sale. Please send me your free catalog."
Kim B. from Independence, MO
"I have had your 4" x 6" frame holders on my fridge for years now, and always get compliments on keeping fun pictures up for everyone to see. I was glad to see that you had an Internet site. My sister-in-law wanted some for her birthday, and I found your site, ordered and my shopping was done. They were delivered quickly too. I love your products!"
Beth C. from Boston, MA
"My husband is in the Navy and just shipped out. My three children and I were so very sad to see him go. The hugs and kisses couldn't last long enough. We took many pictures the day before he left and got them developed in only half an hour. The people at the store were so nice. My husband wants some frames to put our pictures up on his steel ship wall next to his bunk. The kids and I want some too so we can put his picture on our refrigerator door where we can see him everyday til he returns.
You must get thousands of orders for your wonderful frames. We have been buying them to send Christmas photos to our relatives for years. I never thought they would become so important to our family at a time like this. Thank you for your products. We love them."
Dr. Peter L. from Philadelphia, PA.
"I work in a hospital in the city and some of my older patients do not have family close enough to visit. I have often found that they bring pictures of their families with them and want to stick them up on the walls of their rooms. Our hospital does not allow tape to be used on the walls, but your frames stick very nicely to the metal parts near the bed. I have given several of your frames to my patients and need some more. You wouldn't believe some of the stories I have heard from my patients about their grandchildren when I stop to admire a photo I do believe those simple photos have healing powers. Maybe it's the magnets."
Jim and Sandy B. from Booth Bay, ME
"My wife and I are retired now and spend most of our time traveling in our motor home visiting the kids and their families. We love taking pictures of the grandkids and until we found your beautiful magnetic frames and MAGNA-MOUNTS, there was no way to hang them in our motor home because we couldn't put nails in the walls. Those MAGNA-MOUNTS you sell are perfect. Maybe too good, we now have just about every square inch of wall space covered with pictures of the whole family. It's so nice to sit and sip our coffee in the morning and think about all the great times we've had being with the little ones. I was really surprised that the frames don't even move when we go over bumps. They work really well, just like they are supposed to.
Lately, my wife has been ill and our travels in the rolling house have been cut short. Now many of our photos line the walls in our bedroom where she can see them all the time. I thank youfor helping us protect and enjoy all our wonderful memories together. Sandy says hello and can we have another catalog please?"
Alice K. from Lansing, NY
"Thank you for making it possible to find your Magnetic Photo Frames. I sent a number of snapshots of our children to my husband who is overseas on active duty. He is able to display these photos easily on the steel wall of his living quarters aboard ship. His shipmates would like some now. Could you please send a catalog of your fridge magnets?"
Diane J. from Northhampton, MA
"I have written to you for a catalog of your complete line of refrigerator frames because I saw them on the refrigerator of a friend and was impressed with their magnetic strength and the way they actually beautify the photos they hold. I have many of the heavier, thicker plexi-glass magnetic frames on my fridge but they always fall off when the door is closed or when I sometimes just pass by the fridge and happen to brush the door. Your frames hold so tightly they are almost hard to remove to change pictures. Please send your catalog, I'd like to buy quite a few for myself and friends."
Joyce I. from Goodman, WI
"Thank you for such a wonderful product. My fridge is covered with your frames. I constantly get compliments from friends and guests who always find themselves standing in front of the fridge inspecting my latest family photos of our children. It always leads to an opportunity to tell stories of our family's latest vacation or special occasions. Your frames also make wonderful gifts. Thank you for shipping my order so quickly, I was very pleased."
Jackie C. from Seattle, WA
I ordered your adhesive magnet sheets a while back and am sending a few photos of how I used your product. I cut out circles from the magnet sheets and stuck them to small tins which I filled with spices. The finished product is a spice rack that conveniently attaches to the fridge with magnets. I made several sets to give as Christmas gifts this year. I'm very happy with how they turned out. The magnets are strong enough to hold the tin and spices inside. Also, I washed them in warm soapy water and the adhesive is holding up great. Thanks for making a quality, affordable product!
Sally S. from Oklahoma City, OK
"My magnets arrived yesterday and they are just "exactly" what I wanted. I did not order from the internet because I couldn't tell which magnet I needed...so I called. The person who answered the phone made a recommendation and took my very small order. I wish everyone with whom I do business were as accommodating as you. I will recommend you to anyone who needs magnetic photo frames and will place my next order only with you. You are a "breath of fresh air"!"
Linda S. from Pittsburgh, PA
"Where in the world did you ever get the idea for such a wonderful product? I love these things. My daughter and I use them for everything; Baby Shower gifts, Christmas gifts, Wedding thank-you gifts with a photo of her husband and her and birth announcements when she had her first baby. I just want to say Thank You. We have your frames all over our fridge and so do all our friends. It sure makes a nice way to be able to show off the pictures you like the best. I was wondering, I'm really getting into scrapbooking lately. Can you make a 12 x 12 frame I can use to frame a collection of photos on scrapbook paper? I'd love to show off some of my favorite new pages. Thanks again. I love your products."
