How Phlib Works
Phlib magnetic photo frames are very simple to use. They are a lightweight metal frame which you simply hang, screw or stick to the wall. Photographs are placed on the frame and then held in place by incredibly powerful little magnets (from the future). Buy them here!
What they look like:
Phlib hold the photographs to look as if they're floating off the wall! In most lighting conditions this makes the photographs cast a cool shadow on the wall behind them. Check out Liberation for examples.
Phlib are painted in various colours (coming soon!) to best match the colour of your wall. With photographs in place, the frame can barely be seen - power to the photo!
Phlib are not adjustable but designed to hold a specific size of photograph. Most of the Phlib hold multiple photographs in an array. At the moment we only produce Phlib to hold the most common size of UK photographs which measure 6 x 4 inches. It doesn't matter if the photos aren't exactly this size, plus or minus a few millimetres is perfectly OK.
On the wall:
We recommend using the recommended 3M Command™ product as the easiest, fastest and cleanest way to mount your Phlib on the wall. For best results, you must follow the simple instructions on the back of the 3M packet. As the standard purchase option, the most suited 3M Command™ product is included in the price. You can, however, remove these from your order if you would like to traditionally hang or screw your Phlib to the wall. Phlib have lots of slots for hanging with conventional picture hooks. They also have lots of holes for screw mounting.
These things are indistinguishable from magic. You no longer have to drills holes or hammer picture hooks into the walls. Command™ Picture Hanging Strips feature a hook and loop backing which means you can remove, replace and adjust your Phlib as many times as you want! Then, if you choose to take your Phlib down for good you can remove the strips from the wall without causing any surface damage!They don't even leave a mark if you want to remove them.

On removal, ensure that the release tab is pulled slowly and straight down at least 40cm until the strip releases cleanly from the wall. Do not pull the strip out at an angle. The strip could break or damage the surface. Do not use with delicate or paper wallpaper. May not adhere well to some vinyl wallpapers. Do not use for antiques or heirlooms or other valuable or irreplaceable items.
Do not hang items over beds. Always read and follow the instructions for application and removal, which can be found on the reverse side of the packaging. Apply to surfaces above 50°F (10°C). Adhesive could soften and lose adhesion above 105°F (40°C). See back of pack for full details.
