When I started making magnets, I tried many different ways to package them (in packs of 4). I had the following problems:
- Magnets would shift inside the packaging
- Magnets would stick to each other
- If I put two packs of magnets close to each other, they’d stick to each other & thus get shifted around inside the packaging
- Tins were too expensive
I finally found a solution that works perfectly! The magnets stay in place, and it doesn’t cost a fortune. Read along for the answer…
The main part of my solution is this giant washer. Using 4 small washers gave me issues – the magnets would shift around inside the packaging. With a big round washer like this, the magnets stick perfectly to each of the 4 corners. Since the washer is so big, it’s strong enough to hold the magnets in place, so they don’t shift around at all – even if the pack touches other magnets!
I got the washers from my local home improvement store. I bought a box of them, and buying them this way, in bulk, they end up costing about 20 cents each.
