Photo Gallery 2x2 Magnet
My magnets have great color and clarity. I took photos of vintage advertising on antique pieces I own, and the magnets are little pops of vintage color on my fridge. Love this product!
These magnets come in a magnetic sheet that you punch out, and have a slight jump in the cut resulting in a rough corner. It isn't noticeable from a distance (ex 2 feet away), but the die cut could be improved.

Photo Gallery 2x2 Magnet Set
I've purchased these twice. The first time, I was very happy with the product. I received my second set today. They were not die cut well which led to jagged corners and rough edges. Fine for what I paid (which was just the shipping cost) but I certainly wouldn't be happy at the regular, full price. A family member also ordered this item and received magnets with rough edges. I would be a little hesitant to order these as a gift at this point.

Good for "Fridge Art", but...
I ordered three sets of these magnets to capture fun and random family moments with my new baby and my four-yr-old. They look good from far back but not up close. When you tear the magnets apart (they come all connected), there are black edges that won't go away, and little magnet "fibers" are left, causing uneven borders. It's not a big deal overall, but when they are already so expensive, I expect better quality.

Very nice but not what I expected
I expected a slightly sturdier magnet, rather than literally just a photo on a piece of magnet material. It's still a very nice item and the photo came out perfectly, as usual with Shutterfly!

Gallery of Four 2x2 Magnet
I just love the way my Grandchildren smile at me as I pass by the refrigerator, several times a day. The magnets I created made wonderful gifts for Mother's day and Father's day. Very easy to create and share the love of family.

Great product if you get on sale.
I don't think the magnets are worth $15 plus shipping for 4 little magnets but if you get a deal on them its worth it. perfect for your work locker, or your refrigerator. they are photo paper on a magnet but I have never had a problem with them peeling up. I don't let my kids play with them though and I don't wash them with a wet rag. I wouldn't think they would get ruined if I did, I just never needed to do that. I have had some of my magnets for 2 years with zero issues.

buy the 3x3 instead
These are a very cute size; however the cutout is not perfect, so that two of the rounded sides are a bit rough. I might be a perfectionist, but they were $14 and I think for that price the cut outline should be nicer.

Very adorable magnets
There was a great promo this past week that offered free magnets so I went ahead and ordered a set.
One, being for free, I really have nothing to complain about. I think they are a super cute and creative way to display pictures. They are small, but make a good size magnet. I think my pictures and colors turned out just fine :)
Willl def order more!

Such a cute little set!
We had yet another promo code (don't you LOVE them?!) for a set of 2x2 magnets and decided to use pictures of our son (new parents, going nuts with photo products!). Don't expect magnets to be glossy like photos, they are not, but they are still adorable! Every time we have visitors they coo at our refrigerator.

Love these! - Perfect Grandparent/Great Grandparent gift!
I purchased several sets of these. I sent one set to my mom of four of her great grandchildren. She LOVES them.
She's 89, had many kids, and with all the photos of kids, grandkids, and now great grandchildren, she's overwhelmed as to what to do with photos. I decided to just put the photos on magnets so she can just stick them on her fridge and enjoy. She loves that she can see them all the time, they get seen by all who visit her, and she doesn't have to consider 'what to do' with the photos.
I now do this for relatives when I take photos at their occasions. I've printed up magnets through several different vendors, and Shutterfly has the best quality I've found.

You get what you're paying for
These reviews are confusing. Mostly because you don't know what people are looking for. I ordered a set of these cause I got a free deal on them. I was looking for magnets to put on our fridge for our kids. I put pictures of our family members, since we don't get to see everyone very often. I think these are great magnets for that. They are hard for my kids to get off the fridge cause they stick so well. But because of that, when they try to get them off, they've pulled some of the edges up off the magnet. These are strong magnets and I didn't have any trouble with colors being washed out or not what I remember. I think some people's computer screens may throw off their final product.

I was almost scared off by the bad reviews, but I went ahead and got the magnets. I'm glad I did! They were NOT flimsy - they were a good thickness. The color was perfect. They were a great little party favor for us. Will buy again!

Not really worth it
I love shutterfly's products but these magnets are a a bit flimsy and they printed darker than the photo should be. Next time I'll just get prints made and get those magnet stickers that you can stick a print to and cut it out yourself.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I love the color and quality of my magnets. I would definitely order again!

Pick something else
They get 1 star for being magnets, like they say. They get 1 more star for printing and mailing really fast.
But the pics are washed out and the magnets are very flat and thin, not at all worth what is charged.
I wish I'd have read the other reviews. :/

I was disappointed with the quality of these magnets. The coloring was very off and made 2 of my pictures look particularly washed out. I also hoped that for the price these would be hard magnets, but they are thin and flexible. They came in a sheet and had to be punched out

Quality is good, photo placement is NOT
The magnets I received were good quality. However, when you place the photos in the personalization tool, the finished product is off a bit. I was extremely picky and exact about my photo placement, and I was shocked when the magnets arrived and the tops of my photos had been cut off. It wasn't enough to completely ruin the photos, but if I had intended them to be a gift, I would've definitely returned them. Until I get some sort of confirmation that this issue is fixed, I will not be ordering this product from this site again. There are enough other quality sites out there that offer more precise personalization and photo placement.

I did the same photo for a gift for my family and my inlaws as well as keep one for my fridge. They were so good. I just wish I would have placed the photo a little better my oldest's son's head was cut off a little bit.

Photo Gallery 2x2 Magnet
Daughter took some scenic shots at Disney's Aulani of the resort, a Menehune statue on the grounds, and a plumeria as well as of the butte in Cars Land. The magnets turned out beautifully and she will be using them in her locker at school.
