Traditional Magnetic Picture Frames
Traditional magnetic picture frames are the ones you have probably seen for years and are most familiar to you.

These magnetic frames come in a variety of styles and sizes and are usually made out of metal, glass, plastic or acrylic. The modern magnetic picture frame is not as inexpensive as the traditional magnetic frame but is still very reasonable.
