    I hear people are printing magnets on copiers.  I need to print 8.5 x11 magnets.

    I'd check with your paper supplier(s) to see what they have available that will work with your machines. I use Lindenmeyr, they carry a few Mohawk magnetic stocks that might work. I know I've printed on 8.5x11 and even stock that has a magnetic business card sized magnet that peels off an 8.5x11 brochure. Both were printed on digital laser printers.

    Shawn just checking to see if you made out okay on this, we've done magnet printing on our iGens so I know it can be done. The stock typically comes neutral from a charge and after printing it's run through a magnetizer unit to apply the charge.

    Some magnet stock will print on copiers. I would check the paper stock to the machines compatibility.
    I’ve experienced no success on my C850.
    Sure it will run through for a couple sheets but there’s no production.
    Laser printers have given me great success printing magnets but the quality was low due to a lower end model printer.

    Check specs for paper, usually found on the manufactures site.
    Order a box and see how well the magnet stock will run prior to making a promise you can’t keep.

    Hope this helps...
