Custom Car Magnets

Custom stickers were all the rage for a very long time, but the time has come for custom magnets to shine. We often overlook the unused metallic surfaces all around us, because stickers stick to just about any smooth, non-porous surface. 

These spaces are unused advertising real estate. A car magnet can offer more versatility and easy repositioning than car decals. Use the empty space on your vehicle for large, mobile business cards.

Our custom car magnets are easy to create using our online design tool. Choose from one of our premade design templates, upload your own artwork or work with a graphic designer. Our magnets are fully customizable so add images, text and your own touch. Your vehicle surface is your canvas.

Artwork Specifications

Preferred Files for Printing

The maximum file size we accept is 100 MB. Our preferred file types are:

  • Adobe Illustrator EPS (Encapsulated Post Script)
  • PDF (Adobe PDF)

When submitting these files, make sure you convert all fonts to outlines or curves to ensure they print correctly and the fonts are not substituted. 

Additional Files Accepted

  • JPG (High Resolution JPEG)
  • TIFF (High Resolution TIFF)
  • PNG (High Resolution PNG)

File Tips

  • Set up size proportionate to the exact size product you are ordering 
  • Convert all text to outlines 
  • Only Allow for bleed if necessary
  • Never flatten/merge layers in a PSD file
  • Indicate the cut line clearly for all decal products

Vector Art

Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in key line mode you can see the points or vectors when connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between the vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution. 

Raster Art

Raster images consist of colored squares, called pixels. They are created by combining a series of various colored pixels. Digital photographs are made up of pixels. If you view a raster image at 200% or more you are able to see the individual pixels that make up the image. Raster images are dependent upon resolution so image enlargement is limited by the individual size at which the file was created. If a file is produced at a size that is larger than its resolution will allow, the quality will decrease. Printing a low resolution file will result in pixelation. Individual pixels are large enough to be easily discernable. Increasing the resolution will not solve this problem is there are not enough pixels to begin with. The program will add more pixels based upon the estimation of their location and will then assign their neighboring pixels's color value. This may cause an image to look muddy. 

If submitting these files, please follow the guidelines below:

  • 100% scale (full size output) at 100 dpi
  • 50% scale at 200 dpi or higher
  • 25% scale at 300 dpi or higher
  • 10% scale at 600-1200 dpi recommended

Design Services

If you are not able to provide us with a print ready artwork, we do have a vectorizing/recreating service available. Most logos or images can be recreated for $70. Artwork design service discounts may apply.  Please contact a sales representative today for more details.

This service needs to be paid for in advance and we will be happy to give you a copy of the vector file once it is complete.

Take your marketing campaign to new places, literally, with a car magnet. Mobile advertising is all the rage in our bustling society. These products work great as magnetic car signs or moving yard signs. 

Car magnets attract far more attention than a mere bumper sticker. Many delivery businesses use magnetic car signs instead of car decals or wraps because of their ease of repositioning and size. 

Magnets come in a variety of shapes and sizes.  We offer a die-cut option that is cut to the contour of your design. Our magnetic products are printed in full CMYK color with full bleed, so there will not be a border interfering with your vehicle background.

Frequently Asked Questions Return to Top

Product Information

What material are your magnets made out of?

Our custom car magnets are constructed from sturdy 30 millimeter magnetic material. The magnet surface is equipped with a UV, scratch and water-resistant laminate.

What metallic surfaces do magnets stick to?

Magnets will cling to any Ferromagnetic materials. These are magnetic receptive rare earth minerals that include: iron, nickel, steel and cobalt. 

Most car doors are made out of these types of materials and that is why magnets so readily stick to them. 

* Due to the different alloy composition, magnets will not cling to stainless steel or aluminum. *

How many magnets may I order?

You may order a single magnet or 1,000. The more magnets that you order, the larger bulk discount you will receive.

My car magnet is giving me trouble, why won’t it stick?

Most likely, the problem is that your car body is non-magnetic. Magnets will not cling to aluminum or plastic. Your vehicle owner's manual should list the composition of your car body. If you discover that your car has non-magnetic receptive  doors, then try some of our custom vehicle decals.

Are your car magnets waterproof?

Our magnetic products are designed with a water-resistant laminate. This laminate will help protect your magnet, but just remember that water is a very powerful element that can have damaging effects over time.

So, can I leave my magnet on in the car wash?

While the magnets have water-resistant laminate, the force and friction  of the  car wash brushes will probably strip off the magnet and it will get left behind.

Can my magnet be made to match the shape of my artwork?

Yes, we offer die-cut magnets that will follow the contour of your design. Simply select die-cut when selecting your product option, then upload your design.

Can I write on my magnet?

Yes, you can either use a sharpie to write permanent messaging or use a dry erase marker for a temporary message, like for calendars or shopping lists. The sharpie should be wiped off with a light chemical agent or warm soapy water.

Can I add my own artwork and designs to my magnet?

You can absolutely add your very own designs. Using the online designer tool, you can upload your own artwork or add images to the pre-made templates. Customize your magnet how you’d like and if you need any assistance, then contact one of our helpful customer service representatives.

What are your magnets commonly used for?

A lot of food delivery places use them as temporary mobile signage because they are less of a pain to remove and reapply than car window decals. Another benefit is that you can use your personal vehicle for work by simply adding or subtracting your magnet. 

Taxi companies that use Fleet vehicles can also utilize car magnets in a similar fashion. 

Smaller designs also have their own magic. One idea might be to create magnetic rack cards for promotional purposes. This would be ideal for repair service vehicles that stay parked for long periods of time.
