How to Install Your Custom Car Magnet

Step 1, showing a car magnet flat on the floor

Place your magnet on a flat magnetic surface for 24 hours to restore magnetic memory.

Before installing your magnet, be sure to put it on a flat magnetic surface such as a refrigerator for 24 hours. We ship all our magnets rolled up to prevent damage during shipment. Placing them on a magnetic surface will help flatten the magnet for installation while resetting the magnetic memory. Failing to place your magnet on such a surface will result in poor adherence to the vehicle surface during installation and subsequent use.

Step 2 showing someone wiping the side door of a car with a rag

Clean the vehicle surface and magnet before installing it.

We recommend cleaning the exterior of your vehicle and wiping down the back of your magnet with a damp cloth (a mild detergent and water solution will also work) prior to installing on the vehicle's surface. By cleaning both the vehicle and magnet and allowing them to air dry you'll prevent any dirt or tiny rocks from scratching the vehicle's paint and create a solid connection between the magnet and vehicle surface.

Step 3 showing the magnet being applied to the car

Place the magnet on a flat magnetic vehicle surface (no curves, bumps, and no molding).

Please note that the installation surface must be completely flat without any bumps, curves, or molding. The surface must also be a magnet-compatible metal, otherwise the magnet will not work. Make sure the magnet completely adheres to the surface without air pockets.

Step 4 showing someone cleaning the magnet while on a flat surface

Avoid damage to your magnet or vehicle by removing and cleaning both surfaces frequently.

Remove your magnet often and regularly to quickly clean the application surface as well as the back of the magnet. Doing so will increase its longevity and hold.

Step 5 showing someone removing the magnet from the side of the vehicle

Remove magnets during car washes or when not in use.

Remove your magnet before entering a mechanical car wash or using a power washer as both can permanently damage your custom car magnet. We also recommend storing the magnet if you won’t be using it for an extended period. Store it flat and out of direct sunlight.

After removing your vehicle's magnet we recommend cleaning it before storing it flat in a container, in a cool, dry place or with a piece of non-abrasive fabric on each side. Storing it in any of these ways will prevent any damage to you magnet including the printed side, keeping it in excellent condition for future use.

Can I buy blank magnets?
Asked a year ago by Signs

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.

Can I write on the car magnet?

Yes, you can. You can write on the car magnet’s smooth matte surface using compatible markers.

Can car magnets be customized with specific designs and messages?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Yes, you can. You can customize your car magnets by adding your designs, logos, or messages through our design templates or online design tool.

Are vehicle magnets effective for advertising?
Asked a year ago by Signs

While we can’t guarantee results for your business, studies have shown that auto magnets are an effective advertising option for entrepreneurs and small businesses. To learn more, please read our blog post on the effectiveness of car magnet advertising.

How do car magnets differ from other types of vehicle advertising?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Car magnets are flexible and removable compared to other types of vehicle advertising like permanent decals or wraps.

Before applying my magnet, is there anything I need to do?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Yes. Please be sure to wash both the magnet itself and the surface on which it will be applied to. In both cases a solution of 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?
Asked a year ago by Signs

We recommend that you lay your magnet flat in a warm, dry place for at least 24 hours before applying it. This will help to recalibrate the magnetic memory and ensure the strongest magnetic bond possible.

How should I store my magnets?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Magnets should be stored in cool, flat locations out of direct sunlight. Avoid storing your magnets in soft, uneven places that are overly hot. 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.
