I've got a project where I need to print a poster-sized picture onto a ferromagnetic surface. Magnets will be placed on the print, similar to placing magnets on your fridge.
All metal prints I've seen are on aluminum which is not ferromagnetic.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Silk screen on a piece of steel or have printed on an adhesive film that could be applied. Any sign shops nearby?

I haven't yet tried this at poster size but prints of smaller size can be laminated and have sticky magnetic tape affixed to the back. My daughter does this with pictures for pre-schoolers and I've been wanting to try it, on a smaller scale than posters, to make a color, shapes, sort of puzzle/art composition stick to a whiteboard and remove as you like teaching aid. If you try it before I do, let me know how/if it works. Good luck.
