One of the simplest and easy to use accessories you will find for your school locker is magnetic locker wallpaper. It is gives a nice finishing touch or can be just as nice being used as a standalone locker decoration. Although most of the designs and patterns that the wallpaper has to offer, tends to be "girly", you can find some cool and masculine designs for the "guys" as well.

The whole magnetic locker wallpaper craze, virtually began a couple of years ago, well, in 2008 to be exact. In 2008, Sarah Buckel, a middle school student at the time, had an interest in decorating her school locker. What made Sarah hesitant was the fact that she did not want to end up like many of her friends that used paper to decorate their lockers only to end up, when the school year was over, peeling and cleaning sticky residue left from glue used to keep the paper intact, off of their lockers.

Sarah came up with the brilliant idea of magnetic locker wallpaper and told her father Paul Buckel. Luck for Sarah, the best part about her idea and a primary contributing factor in executing her plan was, at the time, Paul was Chief Executive Officer of a company named Magna Card. The company's primary operation was the production of various magnetic products. Turns out, at that time, Magna Card needed some innovation to their product line at the time and Sarah's idea was gladly welcomed. After all the logistics were ironed out and the product was put into production Sarah's idea earned her over $1 million in sales.

The designs offered range from flowers to prints to stripes to various colors and so much more. The magnetic locker wallpaper can be found in local stores like Target, Wal-Mart, Staples. For those that do not want to deal with the hassles of the local stores and the potential of limited availability and variety especially during back to school season, and would prefer to shop online, Amazon has a huge selection.

Thanks to Sarah and such a wonderful idea, your student can enjoy a nice and trendy decorated locker without all of the end of the year aggravation of cleaning a sticky locker.
