Magnetic Material

Hi every1, im new to this forum so im sorry if this forum is wrongly placed....

i want to create a notice board that uses magnets to stick important items to the board. The board's material must be light and cheap. any suggestions?

better still, if this material is known for being manufactured with an adhesive side so i can stick the material straight onto my wall.

thanks for your help guys.

RE: Magnetic Material

Your only real option is a piece of painted or coated  sheet steel.  From an aesthetics standpoint, I would suggest a dry-rease board that is magnetic.  Office supply stores carry them, and the colored plastic encased magnets just for them.
