How to Use Custom Car Magnets to Advertise Your Business


Tips for Using Car Magnets for Advertising

Car magnets can become an incredibly versatile tool for advertising, allowing your brand to be seen everywhere you go. That’s without mentioning the additional benefits of car magnets, like being easy to maintain (you only need to do a simple cleaning about once a week!) or the fact that they’re easy to remove. Nevertheless, designing something is always hard, so here are some tips to make it easier on you.


There are a couple of standard sizes for car magnets. Having the biggest and grandest message will be completely useless if the magnet won’t even fit on your car. Measure your vehicle before you order a car magnet, you wouldn’t want to get a size that doesn’t fit!

Also, remember that car magnets only go on flat parts, if there is any molding or bevels they won’t work. Also, if you have made out of fiberglass you’ll need to find another alternative, as magnetic car signs won’t work. For those cases, vinyl decals

Full Color

Most people who see your car magnet will be on the road, and odds are they’ll only give a quick glimpse to your car. This means you want to to make it stand out as much as possible, and by using full-color graphics you do just that.

Simple is better

When using your car to advertise your business, a common mistake we often see is trying to fit in everything about your company on one magnet. Fax, telephone, address, name, logo, what you do, slogan, etc. With so many things on one magnet, it gets very difficult to understand what you actually want others to read.

Try to keep it with just your company’s name, what service you provide, and a phone number. You can add your website as well. Odds are, any potential customer will end up searching for your company on google to know more about your business, so you really only need to focus on your company’s name and service.

Size Matters

Even if your logo might look great printed on a business card or on your website, odds are it won’t look as good if it’s zoomed in and upsized to fit onto a car magnet. If you have a low-quality photo, the file will end up looking extremely pixelated or distorted after being enlarged.

A quick test to see if your image works or not is to zoom in at a high level, 200% works as a minimum, but you can go upwards to 600% as well. If the image does not look good zoomed in, it probably won’t look good as a magnetic sign.

Why Wrap Your Car?


Why Wrap Your Vehicle

It is not uncommon for a customer to not consider wrapping their car. At the end of the day, why should I risk it with a wrap when I can take the safe approach of getting a new paint job? Most customers would be surprised by the number of advantages a high-quality wrap can bring.

Low Maintenance

Instead of having to waste time waxing your vehicle, with a car wrap you’ll have a lot less maintenance to do. All you really need is some soap and water, and a bit of elbow grease and your car will look like new. While installing, you can also ask for ceramic coating packages that will make it even easier to take care of your car.

Keep Your Value High

Even if a bright fluorescent color is just perfect for you, it doesn’t mean that the next person in line will be interested in it. By keeping the car’s factory color, the resale value of it will not be affected.


Even though the previous point talked about keeping your car as factory fresh as possible, a car wrap will still allow you to get a new color on your car. Vinyl wraps can make your car stand-out among all the rest. Even better, in comparison with a new paint job, the most extravagant of wraps can just be taken off and replace, making it the best choice by far.


The vinyl coating is going to end up protecting your car from most small hazards. You won’t have to worry anymore about little chips or abrasion, as the wrap will protect it. This applies to the factory paint as well, so your car will remain as close to factory made as possible.


Getting a new coat of paint will last anywhere from two weeks onwards. In comparison, wrapping a vehicle is going to take much less time to get fully done. Professional can get the job done in around 3-5 days, a much shorter time-frame in comparison with painting your car.

Long Lasting

If you go and get a very high-quality vinyl, it will last for a really long time. By keeping your wrap safe and giving it some basic protection, and basic protection just means not leaving it in the sun too much, your wrap will last the maximum amount of time possible. Some wraps can last around 4-10 years, and when they’re getting too old you can take them off without having to worry about getting a new paint job.
