WOW! I had no clue that you couldn't mail magnets!!!
Ladies, I apologize but will cancel this swap then.
I've mailed them before and never once had a question asked on them, and have received many magnets in swaps and never had problems... and in fact, have ordered the refrigerator business magnets (like the business card types) and received them without problems, but apparently there are some restrictions so I'll cancel this one.

Sorry! Learn something new every day!

Darn! This would have been a great swap. I'm guessing magnets interfere with their postal scanning equipment??

I guess it does and they are actually considered a hazardous material item! Yikes. I never would have thought. But there were restrictions about how to mail them (polarity) and how strong of a magnet you could send, etc. I guess no one ever thinks to list magnets out as a separate item and so its never been an issue for me, but I don't want to cause any issues or problems for anyone either. I guess you aren't supposed to mail them internationally at all even on the site. Wierd.

Sorry, ladies, I was really hoping to see some awesome creativity on these. I'll have to come up with something else, or maybe we have to have one for the magnets without the magnets attached and you add your own??
