about eachanoriginal

eachanoriginal Design Company was established in 2000 with the goal to provide a quality, fun, unique, playful and whimsical handmade in Canada magnet line.

An integral part of the vision was to offer women artists the flexibility to work from their own homes doing something creative.

Together the diverse painting styles culminated in the uniqueness of each magnet, thus making “each an original” work of art.

New Creator

As eachanoriginal’s head designer and painter for almost 20 years, I  have had a hand in training all of our painters as well as myself. I have also produced all of our advertising graphics and created our website.

In September 2023,  I took on eachanoriginal as a solo business and am enjoying learning every step of design, production, shipping, marketing, and customer service.

It’s a lot! But creating and producing an art product that I absolutely love has been my dream for decades and I truly love these magnets and all the possibilities they hold!

about our magnets

What are the fridge magnets made of?
The magnets are prefabricated porcelain tiles to which we attach a magnet.

Do the tiles break?
The tiles are porcelain but are actually quite durable. The painted finish is also protected with a water-based varnish. They may chip if dropped on hard surfaces.

I damaged a tile and chipped the edge– can I fix it?
Sharpie permanent markers can be used for “touch-ups.” They come in a wide range of colours.

How strong are the magnets?
The magnets are of medium strength and can hold one piece of paper or photo.

Where are they made?
The tiles are prefabricated in the USA, and purchased in Canada.  We hand-paint and assemble the finished product in Canada.

What size tiles do you have?
The tiles are available in three sizes: 1×1, 1×2 and 2×2 inches.
