:: Disney Cruise Door Magnets ::

I posted these on FB before our recent Disney cruise, but now that we are back I thought I’d post here.
We took part in a FB group magnet exchange, a Disney cruise tradition. Since the stateroom doors are metal, people in the exchange make magnets for each other, then go around the ship and stick them on the doors. By the end of the cruise, our door was covered in them!
Anyway, here is my family’s contribution to the cause. We had a list of everyone’s favorite Disney characters, so that helped inform my character choices. They are PG Med Maple Ply (3" dia) with ceramic magnets glued on back.
For the designs, I snagged character images off of Google, then halftone-screened them in Ps to give them the look I wanted (and to hide the varying quality of the web images used). I personalized each one hoping to help prevent any “sticky fingers” from taking them on the public corridors. I made a few extra with character names on the banners instead of personalization to hand out to unknown new friends or helpful staff, etc.

The quality of the engraving is just amazing!

Small world (Pun intended.) We just got back from our Disney Cruise about a week ago.

#6

Those are amazing! Such stunning engraves! May have to make some Disney coins for my grandson.

Chip and Dale are my favourite Disney Characters!!! Love how they turned out! Great job!!! Now I want to do a Disney Cruise!

oh i love how the thick-to-thin line engrave look for the shading! Was that done with photoshop or in vector? I’d love to get clean engraving for shaded images like that!

EDIT: oh i should’ve read your post more carefully, you said it there that you did halftone in photoshop.

Very cute!

Well, I’d have to do the math. But it took 3 hrs + 25 mins to engrave AND cut the front side
on PG sheet’s worth (15 magnets). The back sides took over 2 hours.

So a little over 20 mins each.

Thanks!

I love these! I’m a big Sci-Fi fan, but deep inside I am a Disney Girl – Jiminy is my fave. You did a fantastic job!!!

I asked my fiance’ about a Disney Cruise — his idea of a romantic honeymoon cruise did not include little kids and Disney. I had looked up Disney cruises awhile back and they said there were “adult only” areas – but he wasn’t sure if there would be enough of those for his liking. :wink: …and yes he has gone to Disney with me before. <<excuse me for hijacking the thread, I really wanted to know about the adult areas—wish they had an all adult Disney cruise but haven’t found one>>
