I ordered custom 1" magnets from etsy/CuteCraftsEtc because it was pretty much the best price, short of purchasing my own button maker. I used Adobe Photoshop to cut each of my images into circles (using an overlay of a smaller circle, so I could see where the focal area would be, and what would become edges). I also used Photoshop to fill in any blank areas for photos that weren't perfectly centered to my focal area. The template below shows both the outer-cutting edge (black) and the inner focal area (red). The Duquesne Incline photo didn't fully fill out the outer circle, so I filled in with a matching black background.
The printable chore chart below is something I drew up in Adobe Illustrator, but I've removed all the text so the world can customize it. Just add initials and chores. Does it get any better than that?! ;)
