Essential Information to Include on Your Custom Car Magnets

Custom vehicle or car magnets are one of our most popular products at Printastic because they’re durable, effective, and exceptionally affordable. And though we have many impressive designs in our vast library of templates, we are asked time and time again by customers what information they should include in their custom magnet design.

Though space can be limited on a magnet, there is still plenty of room to make the most of your real estate to achieve maximum impact. Here are a few suggestions on what essential information to include in your custom vehicle magnet design:

Essential Information to Include

Phone number

Though this may seem like the most obvious piece of information to put on your custom car magnet, it is definitely worth double-checking that you include it in your design. A phone number is the easiest way for a potential customer to quickly and immediately contact you – especially when they’re out on the road. This is doubly true if your phone number happens to include a recognizable word or phrase like 1-800-my-business.

The more prominently and obviously you can display your phone number on your custom car magnet, the better chance you have of new customers dialing it next time they see you out and about.

Be sure to use a readable size font for your phone number when creating your magnet design to ensure you have the most significant impact and retention.

Website

It’s a fact that more than 90% of all buying decisions, whether it be a product or service, begin online – and your own website is the best online salesperson you have. That’s why it is incredibly important in this market of increased competition that your website address be front and center in your custom car magnet design.

If you depend on your website for business, even if your website address is on the longer side, we highly recommend its inclusion in your magnet design. To save space, you can easily eliminate the www from the beginning.

Logo

Surprisingly, the inclusion of a logo on a custom car magnet is another aspect of a design that some of our customers tend to overlook. Your logo is like your calling card – it’s the way your customers recognize your work and your quality. Plus, many logos also give new customers an idea of what you do without having to communicate with lengthy explanations.

Just like in your other marketing material, your logo should be front and center of your custom car magnet so all on the road can see exactly who you are and what you do. Luckily, our custom car magnets are printed in full color, so your logo will always look great.


Not Essential, But Great Ideas

Even if you were to print the biggest car magnet on the market, there is only so much information you can comfortably fit in your design before things get crowded and muddy. But if you find yourself with some extra space, you may want to add some of the following components to get the most out of your car magnet exposure on the road.

Address

There’s no question that your address is an important thing to communicate to your customers – especially if they come to you. But in the limited amount of space on a car magnet and the abbreviated amount of time a potential customer will be seeing it, it’s a nonessential piece of information.

Instead of listing your full address, it might be a good idea to just simply list the city where your business resides or the general area you serve. That will be enough of an indicator to the public that you’re local, right in their community, and ready to meet their needs.

Email

The inclusion of an email address on a custom car magnet can go either way – but when it comes to essential information, we are convinced that you’re better off showcasing your website for exposure and your phone number for contact. It’s much easier for a potential customer on the road to dial a ten-digit number then it is to remember a long email address. We suggest saving the emails for use on your business card.


With sizes for every vehicle and a quantity discount that fits every budget, our custom vehicle magnetic signs are a great way to advertise your business without breaking the bank.

Use Custom Banners to Make Election Day a Success

Though elections are held every year in the United States, a presidential election, which only comes around every four years, is a whole different ball game. The stakes are higher, the turnout is bigger, and all eyes turn to local municipalities who bear the responsibility of helping citizens in their area to cast their vote for who will make up their next government. 

2020 is a presidential election year, and though the calendar has seemingly just turned back to January, before we know it, November will be just around the corner. That’s why it is so important that all who are involved in making the electoral process run smoothly throughout our country begin planning now to make sure everything goes off without a hitch. 

And while half the battle is getting voters to show up at the polls, the other half is making sure they know exactly what they’re doing when they get there. Here’s how our custom banners can help make the upcoming election day a real winner:

Custom Banners to Identify Which Precinct Votes Where

When most of us show up to vote on election day, chances are it is at an elementary school, government building, church, or other public space. And because many different voting precincts can end up sharing the same space, the need to properly identify which precinct votes where is incredibly important. Many of our municipal clients have found that using custom banners can provide the perfect solution to this common problem. 

Whether you want to hang the custom banner above an entrance to identify where voters of a certain precinct should enter, or use it to adorn the wall behind a registration table, banners make it easy to quickly communicate to voters which precincts vote where – reducing confusion at the polls and speeding up what can easily become a slow process. Plus, because precincts rarely change and our banners are durable and long-lasting, they can easily be used year after year, election after election, to great efficacy. 

Custom Banners to Let Voters Know Where to Vote

Election day can be hectic, and for many long-time and first-time voters, a change of their voting location can throw a hitch into their plans. That’s why cities, especially after a location change, need to do their best to show voters exactly where they need to go to vote. For many cities and counties, custom banners help achieve this goal in an effective and cost-friendly way.

Both our 8oz mesh banners that are great for high-wind areas and our 18oz heavy duty banners which are designed specifically for large banners intended to be used outdoors are great options for letting your voters know exactly where to vote. When hung on the side of a building or suspended from stakes in a lawn, a big, eye-catching custom banner that says “Vote Here Today” or “Polling Place” will leave no doubt as to your voters destination – and will help you maximize turnout each and every election day. 

Custom Banners for Voter Registration 

Though making voting as easy as possible is the ultimate goal for any city or government that helps to organize an election, equally important is making sure all who are eligible and interested in registering to vote are able to – and, again, banners can play a huge helpful role.

Whether you’re manning a table at a local community gathering months before the election or running a same-day voter registration effort at a local polling place, making sure your audience knows exactly who you are and how you can help them is truly paramount to your success. A beautiful high-quality banner will go a long way to helping you achieve your goal.

Though these are three great ways custom banners can be used to help make your community’s election day a success, there is truly no end to the potential these affordable yet universally adaptable pieces have.
