thought as to the contact
information you place on the student ID sticker. For example, you may

of our student ID stickers, lay the carpet tape from the center out.
Run the tape from top to bottom in 4 pieces. It’s easiest to
run the double sided tape, then cut it from the roll at the end of the
page. Start with one edge of the tape placed on the “center

These non-permanent sticker solutions are
great methods of advertising
proms, dances, sports events and student elections. These non-permanent
magnet stickers will stick to any ferrous surface such as locker doors,
fire doors, car doors and metal car bumpers. Magnetic bumper stickers
made with the method detailed in the Photo
page can be reused
each new event. For example make a magnetic bumper sticker to cheer on
your team for the next big game, following the game overlay the
magnetic bumper sticker promoting the next big game. You can continue
doing this until the sticker gets to heavy. Then peel the magnet off
the built-up stickers and start over again. Of course your handcrafted
magnetic bumper sticker can be used on a school locker as well.
If you are going to use
your handcrafted magnetic bumper sticker
outdoors, you should coat it with an acrylic spray to make your
magnetic bumper sticker water resistant. Test an area first to make
sure the acrylic does not react adversely with your handcrafted
magnetic bumper sticker.
double sided tape is a wonderful product and has many uses. You
can use it the same way you would use a loop of masking tape.
Carpet tape is a more secure and permanent solution. Teachers can use
it to attach artwork around the classroom. You can also make magnet
reminders for the classroom. Art teachers can place carpet tape on the
back of art work before sending it home with students. Please note that
it does not take much tape to accomplish the task and it is permanent
and may mar any surface it come in contact with.
