Some stores have these in the office supplies section.

Been looking at building a wooden DM screen for myself. I like the idea of putting a metal strip across the top of each section, then using magnets to hold papers to them. These would be perfect for that application. Thanks for posting this article. Cheers!

Not sure if these magnets would be powerful enough, but Jot also makes some magnets-in-blue-plastic that I think are stronger.

And there's always the king of magnets:

Jot currently makes wood magnets, as well as plastic magnets in green and blue.

I did a quick check in the store, and the plastic magnets have a lot more strength than the wood magnets. How much strength do you need to secure paper to a screen? Probably not too much. grin
