By Scott Roewer | July 29th, 2008 | Comments »

November 2014 Update – According to the nice people at Dynomighty, Deskdots are no longer available. Dynomighty Design Inc. refers to these magnets as a “versatile desk accessory” that can be used as an organizer, picture holder, desk sculpture, business card holder and stress reliever.
