Frequently Asked Questions

Product Specs:

Can my magnets be round or rectangle or any shape or size?

  • Our custom magnets - for vehicles or otherwise - can literally be cut to any shape and size. To do this you’ll need to select contour or halo cut as an option when designing and ordering your magnet. Contour cut will be cut to the exact edge of your design while halo will leave a small white border around the entire perimeter of your design. Notwithstanding the ability to cut to shape, magnets that are not intricate in their design are more likely to adhere better to your vehicle due to the fact that there is less of a chance of wind getting underneath the magnetic surface while driving.
  • Do I have to use one of your templates for my magnets?

  • No. Our pre-designed templates are just one option for you to use when you design your own magnets. If you prefer not to use one of our templates you have multiple other options. You can design and make your own custom magnet by uploading your own file, use a blank template on our design tool or contact us for free design services. Any of these options will allow you make your own personalized magnet no matter what the need may be - personal or commercial use
  • Does your magnet come with a laminate covering?

  • No, our magnets aren’t covered with a laminate. Instead we use cut Vinyl which does not need a laminate or we print with a UV ink that is weather, fade and abrasion resistant. If you’d still like a laminate covering contact us for a custom quote.
  • Are you magnets reflective? If not, do you offer reflective magnets?

  • Our magnets are not reflective. We do offer Cut Vinyl that is reflective for magnets, please ask a sales rep. for more information.
  • Do your magnets have a warranty?

    All of our signs come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. The lifespan with proper care and maintenance of the magnets is 3-5 years.

    Will my magnet fade in poor weather climates or over time?

    Cut Vinyl will outlast lifespan of the magnet and Due to the fade and abrasion resistant UV ink used in our printing process your magnet and its design should remain vibrant for the entirety of the product lifespan assuming it is cared for properly. This is true even when magnets are constantly exposed to the elements.

    What are the maximum dimensions you can make for a magnet?

    While most car magnets (depending on model and make) are somewhere between 10”-12” wide by 20”- 24” for cars and 18”x24” and up for larger delivery and work vans, we have the capability to make magnets up to 24”x600”.


    Are magnets bad for my car? Do they damage the surface or paint ?

    Our custom car magnets will not do any damage to your car or truck. However, care should be taken to ensure that no dirt or dust is between the magnet and your car. Otherwise, over time, the granules of sand can eventually damage your paint. To prevent this, be sure to always clean your vehicle and the back of the magnet prior to placement. It is also important to note that over long periods of time, the paint of your vehicle may fade from the environment except where the magnets are protecting it..

    Are the magnets water and weather proof? What about car washes?

    The magnets are designed to be used in any climate and generally have a lifespan of 3-5 years with proper care and maintenance. There are generally two exceptions to this lifespan.

    The first is that the magnets should be removed during extreme weather. Torrential downpours, high winds, etc. can pull the magnet off the car and even potentially ruin the magnetic properties of the sign. As noted above, cut to shape magnets can also be less durable when adhered to your vehicle.

    The other exception is the use of power washers and car washes. For the same reason as heavy rain and the powerful brushes of a car wash, magnets should be removed before washing your vehicle.

    Is there a limit on how many times I can remove and put them on ?

    No. The magnets are designed to be able to be used for vehicles that often play the role of business vehicle during the day and personal vehicles during the evening. Notwithstanding, the magnets and surface where applied should be washed and dried before applying and on a regular basis to ensure your magnet lasts as long as possible and that your vehicle’s paint is not damaged from small grains of dust or dirt.

    What if I want a more permanent solution?

    For a semi-permanent solution check out our car decals which use an adhesive instead of a magnetic backing. These can still be easily removed if necessary but only on a one-time basis unlike the magnets.

    Can your magnets be used for surfaces other than vehicles?

    Yes, any metallic surface within your home or business will work perfectly with our magnets. Refrigerators, tool storage units in garage settings, kitchen areas in restaurants, machinery and doors in manufacturing settings and much more will work just fine with our magnets. Surfaces that do not work with our magnets include fiberglass, acrylic, and other similar hard plastic surfaces.

    Is there any place I should avoid putting my magnet on my vehicle?

    Other than non-metallic surfaces, rusted or already damaged areas (i.e. chipped or peeling paint) should be avoided. Placing a magnet in such spots can reduce the magnetic ability, further erode the paint surface or both.

    Further, magnets should be placed on flat surfaces and not on top of major creases, trim or other non-flat surfaces. Doing so will cause wind to get under the magnet and potentially pull the magnet off the car while your vehicle is in motion.

    Can I place your car magnets on my bumper?

    Most vehicle bumpers now are not made of metal so placing a magnet there would not work. We would instead recommend our opaque car decals in that instance. If, however, you do have a metal bumper and it is flat enough to place a magnet, our car magnets should work great..

    Can I buy blank magnets?

    Yes, you can order them through the normal ordering process. Simply order the magnet with no design. It would be helpful for our quality assurance team to leave a comment at checkout letting us know your sign is intentionally blank.

    Are vehicle magnets effective for advertising?

    While we can’t guarantee results for your business, studies have shown that Vehicle Magnets are an effective advertising option for entrepreneurs and small businesses. Read more about the effectiveness of car magnet advertising.

    Installation & Care:

    Before applying my magnet is there anything I need to do?

  • Yes. Please be sure to wash both the magnet itself and the surface on which it will be applied to. In both cases a very mild detergent and water will work. Use only a drop or two of the mild detergent and make sure that you allow both the magnet and the surface to air dry before applying the magnet. Do not at any point submerge the magnet in water regardless of how long it is submerged. Submerging the magnet in water, even for just a few seconds, may ruin the magnetic properties of your sign.
  • My magnets came rolled up - what should I do?

  • We recommend that you lay your magnet flat and let it straighten itself for at least 24 hours before applying it. This will help allow it to unroll and ensure that its magnetic ability is fully functional.
  • How should I store my magnets?

  • Magnets should be stored in cool, flat locations out of direct sunlight. Avoid storing your magnets in soft, uneven places that are overly hot or in direct sunlight. Also, avoid storing your magnets with the magnetic side touching the magnetic side of another sign. Storing your magnet in these locations or this way may degrade your magnet over time.
