There are circumstances when you may want a sign on a truck, trailer or steel surface, but not permanently. Magnetic signs fill that gap. While there are virtually no limitations on the design of a custom magnetic vehicle sign, they are not as durable as permanent installations such as vinyl lettering. Even with that said, Magnetic Signs are great for enhancing the look of a personal vehicle or an entire commercial fleet while maintaining the ease of a one minute removal.
Magnetic signs work great for:
o Commercial Fleets
o Official Vehicles
o Service Fleets
o Novelty Magnets
o Realtor Vehicles
o Delivery Vehicles
Magnetic signs are made of a magnetic material backing with high quality vinyl adhered to the front side of the magnet. Depending on the design, the vinyl adhered can be a full sheet of digitally printed vinyl or die cut vinyl decals placed on the magnet.
Common placement of magnetic signs include the left front door, right front door, or back of the vehicle. Magnetic signs should never be placed on fresh paint. Allow at least 60 days for paint to cure. When installing magnetic signs, ensure that both the vehicle surface and the magnet surface is clean. If even a small amount of dirt is left on the surface it increases the chances of the magnetic signs falling off and the chance that the vehicle paint job will be damaged.
Cleaning magnetic signs is very easy, use any household cleaner and a soft cloth. Wet the soft cloth or sponge and wipe down the sign. Always remove magnetic signs before taking your vehicle through any car wash. Also remember to periodically remove the sign and wash and wax underneath the magnet.
Removing a magnetic sign is simple, Start at one side of the sign, lift off and slowly roll back. Magnetic signs should always be stored adhered to a steel surface or laid flat. Never roll up magnetic signs for long period of time, as they will retain the rolled shape after awhile and will not stay flat on the surface of your vehicle. Also do not store your magnetic signs back to back as they will lose their magnetivity. Store them on a flat metal surface like the side of your fridge or a steel door.
