About: "Old high school friends got together to solve a problem. A photographer wanted a discreet way to display her photography projects in her small home office. She wanted a thin white steel strip that could be mounted flush to her walls, creating a large display area where she could hang photos magnetically when needed, yet disappear into the room when not being used.

The concept evolved into a steel strip backed with a removable adhesive that was so thin it could be rolled up into a dispenser and snapped to any length. Packaged with powerful magnets, it would make for an elegant and simple solution to an age-old problem—something they imagined would be extremely useful to many people in many situations."
