This item ships free within Canada.

Best friends are never apart. Maybe in distance, never by heart!

This simple but perfect flat card comes with two buttons or strong ceramic magnets personalized with whatever place (city or country) of your choice.

These are made using upcycled maps so they are truly one of a kind!

Magnets will be tacked to the card with easily removable glue (like what comes on the back of a credit card when it's new) and buttons will be pin through specially cut holes.

The card also has a heart shaped cut on the bottom right-hand corner - as pictured.

The card comes with a bright colour envelope (colour chosen at random) so that it's ready to go!



-----Specs & Physical Details-----

The card and envelope are 4 inches by 5.25 inches.

Both variations of map items (buttons or magnets) measure 3.175cm (1.25") in diameter (from edge to edge).

The designs are protected by a thin, but resilient mylar layer which makes them water resistant. They can be readily cleaned with a damp cloth as needed. They are not waterproof (though personal experience has shown them to survive an accidental cycle through the washing machine...oops.)

The buttons have a metal pinback enclosure. They are durable and good quality.

The magnets have a strong ceramic magnet: they are not just for display, they really work. They can hold up to 6 thick pieces of printer paper! These strong magnets are not glued to the front, instead, they set in a metal bracket that is machine pressed/crimped onto the front. As the magnet is not glued, some limited movement within the piece is possible - this will not affect use.


-----Tips and Tidbits----

If putting a button on a bag for long term use, consider putting a glob of hot glue on the clasp. This will make it even less likely for the button to be lost as the pin won't be able to leave its cradle!
