The writing on the insert of the magnetic photo frame states that it holds a 4” x 6” photograph. You’re your letter states that the principal use would be for hanging school pictures on refrigerators. A sample of the flexible magnetic photo frame was submitted to this office for classification purposes and is being returned to you as per your request.
