We first got the idea of making fridge magnets, when several people mentioned the lack of any fridge magnets in Bali. We were surprised by this discovery and realized that this might be a potential business gap. Therefore, we decided to take this idea forward in our Art class ‘Market Me’.
Being students from Green School and wanting to use sustainable materials, bamboo was the obvious choice. We decided to laser-print our own designs of Green School on the bamboo cards. From there, we started negotiating prices with suppliers of bamboo card, laser-printing and magnets. We went through 3-4 different design prototypes, before finalizing the two best ones that we were going to sell.
If the business succeeds, we will experiment with additional designs on fridge magnets, as well as expanding to postcards and signs. There are only few on sale, so make sure to stop by and get your very own Green School Bamboo fridge magnets!
