Square, circle, or with a transparent background – the shape of the magnet doesn’t matter. Die-cut magnets should have a transparent background, square magnets should have a square background.

The die cut processes carefully cut the shape of the magnet without harming the rest of the magnet sheet. This means that corners and outcroppings aren’t bent or damaged during the transportation process.

See the following list for specifications on the buffer area. This will be automatically applied after upload, so there’s no need to worry about it during the design process.
