For those of you who are in the market for a magnetic surface, but want a quicker solution than applying magnetic paint, we found these Magnetic Peel & Stick Chalkboard panels from Magnamagic...
We're less interested in the chalkboard aspect than the ability to create a large scale magnetic surface without painting. (Even for me the colors are a bit too "primary school".) But you could use magnets or double sided tape to adhere some Paper Source paper to the entire surface, as a pleasing backdrop for your magnetic surface.
The Magnetic Peel & Stick Chalkboard is sold by the linear foot ($12/foot; 44" wide). To order, click here.
