DIY: Letterpress Magnet Sets

DIY: Letterpress Magnet Sets
This super simple process has only three steps and can be done in less than half an hour! It makes a great gift and can be personalized! Follow these simple steps to create your own alcohol ink dyed letterpress magnet set.


This is all you need:

Step One: Dye Your Letters

This is where you choose your word(s) and pick your colors! For this project I used Dockside Picnic. Here are two simple ways to dye your letters with Alcohol Ink.

Option 1: Use an Alcohol Ink Pen

These new Alcohol Ink Pens make coloring letterpress tiles a breeze! Just choose your color, fill the pen, and color in around the letter!

Option 2: Flood the Tile with Ink

Put a drop or two on the tile and use the tip to spread it around evenly.


Use a paper towel to dab off extra ink, this keeps the colors bright and prevents them from being too dark.

Step Two: Attach Magnets

Flip your letters over and use a small amount of glue to attach one magnet to the back of each letter.


Be careful when working with these magnets, they can snap together or damage electronic screens. While drying, place the magnets a couple of inches apart so they don't snap together and mess up your glue.

Step Three: Try Other Alcohol Ink Sets
