It took four stick-a-rounds and still the name tag would not stay in place on the white board.

You have to use MANY to get anything to stay up! At first I used 3 magnets for a small, laminated construction paper 2x3" and I constantly found myself picking them up off the floor. Once I used a 4th magnet it was better (but that's a lot of magnets for such a small space)

Worse than magnetic tape
I wanted to use these for my calendar (magnet tab on calendar, magnet tab on number) and it was useless, hardly any magnetic stick at all.

Easy to use, but very weak
I used these to magnet my daily schedule/subject cards to my whiteboard. I put two on each (one on each top corner) and they don't fall at all. You'd definitely want two or more per whatever you were trying to stick to the board. They're super easy to use--I actually had a coworker's child help me stick them on the slips, and she did it with ease. For this use these magnets are PERFECT. I also love that I don't have to cut the magnet and ruin my scissors.
However, the white backing paper that covers the sticky side of the magnet CANNOT be written on; it is a shiny, slippery paper. I was hoping to be able to write my class numbers on the paper side for my behavior chart, but when I tried, both regular Sharpie marker and Sharpie paint marker rubbed right off. Then I tried to stick round colored sticker dots over the white and they didn't stick. I ended up peeling off the white backing and then sticking on the colored dots on the sticky side of the magnet itself. The sticker dots were just a little bit smaller than the magnet, but I think it'll work ok... fingers crossed. :)

Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't
This are good for holding very small items, such as a name plate. They did not hold well on a laminated letter size poster mounted on construction paper. They came apart from the laminate.
