Fundraising Car Magnets for your School

School Car Magnets

School Fundraising Car Magnets

Okay, it’s the middle of August, and your PTA/PTO still hasn’t finished their fundraising. Well, today could be the day that you can finally say “We’re Done!”.

The car magnet experts at ARC Marketing can design, print and deliver your new custom magnets in about 2 weeks. That means in about 14 days, your parents could be rockin’ your new magnet on their cars, trucks, mini vans, SUV’s and more.

Want to use this magnet in your refrigerator? No problem; this is a fridge-magnet on steroids. The magnetic strength of this magnet is about 10 times as strong as your typical fridge magnet. You can hold up a week’s worth of homework with this magnet. The days of slamming the fridge shut and having everything fall to the kitchen floor are over.

On your car, on your fridge, on your school locker… this magnet is going to put your school on the map and your fundraising on the fast-track to success.

How much can you sell these for? Quite a few schools are selling them for $10 each with no price resistance. Most parents realize that the money they pay for the magnet is a donation to the PTA, and the magnet is a gift for their donation, so in essence… money is no object.

How much money can you raise with our magnets? Let’s say you have us print 250 magnets at $2 each (your cost). Now let’s say you sell them for $7.50 each (that’s the average fundraising price). That’s a $5.50 profit on each magnet. Sell all 250 magnets and your PTA will raise $1,375. Try doing that with magazine subscriptions. Have a bigger school? Order more magnets and double your profits.

Now, we’re not saying that our car magnets are going to be all you need to do for fundraising this year, but custom car magnets should be part of your fundraising “mix”.

Design a Powerful, Effective car magnet.

Powerful Car Magnet Designs

Free Car Magnet Designs

Designing a powerful, effective car magnet is not difficult, but not everyone can do it! Let the experts at ARC Marketing help.

Which do you think would make a more effective car magnet…

  1. A simple centered logo, with one or two colors, with just a few words above and below the logo.
  2. A simple centered logo and lots of words to get your message out there
  3. Intricate detailed logo, with lots of colors, and lots of words to get your message out there

Actually, the answer is #1 (most of the time!). Although all of these magnets would cost the same (we do not charge more for extra colors, nor do we charge for the time our artists spend working on your design) so if intricate and detailed is what you want… go for it.

If you think about the nature of a car magnet, then a simple design might be the most effective. Remember that most people are going to see your magnet on a moving car. That moving car could be going 65 mph. if your car is standing still, your magnet is still going to be viewed from several car lengths away. When you take this into consideration, then #1 looks like the winner.

Sometimes, your school name just cannot be abbreviated and the message you want to convey cannot be shortened (the more words you use, the smaller the letters will be). Sometimes the logo you have to work with is just a very detailed piece of artwork. Sometimes your mission statement is so critical to your magnet that it needs to be included, no matter what. Well, in that situation, we encourage you to go for it. Even these detailed, wordy magnets get read. They just need to be on a parked car. If that car is in a parking lot at the mall, or at a football game, hundreds of people will be walking past it and noticing it. OK, so now #2 or #3 is looking like the winner.

How do you know which way to go? Of course we have an answer for that too. As mentioned earlier, we do not charge you anything for the time our artist spends working on your design. So why not request two designs? Get a simple one, and get a complex one… then compare them and choose the stronger of the two. Getting started on the design is easy; just fill out our “Virtual Magnet” request form twice (one for each design). You can find that on our website by clicking this link: Free Virtual Magnet.

Professional Car Magnet Designs

You cannot over-emphasize the importance of using a professional artist to design your fundraising car magnet. If you search Google, using the terms “Fundraising Car Magnets”, you’ll find our company, along with hundreds of our competitors. Obviously, you are looking for a competent partner as you go into this fundraiser. Can you judge a company’s professionalism by just going through their website? The answer is “YES”!

First, take a look at the quality and professionalism of each company’s website, and compare it to our website. This is our first opportunity to reach out to you and we want to give you a feeling of confidence. Our website is beautifully designed and built by one of our subsidiary companies, ARC Web Solutions. Look at some of the websites of our competition. The car magnet industry seems to be the industry that the internet revolution forgot. Most of these websites were designed 10 or more years ago, and never updated. That lack of attention should be your first warning sign… a company that can’t (or won’t) keep their website modern probably is not the company you want making car magnets for your important fundraiser.

Second, take a look at the magnet designs shown on each website. This is where each company tries to convince you that their design-team will be able to create a magnet that you will be proud of. Scroll through our design gallery by clicking here. Our magnets have an artistic balance that most other car magnet companies just cannot grasp. There is a balance between the text and the graphics. The type is bold and clear, the logos are centered and prominently displayed. The border colors tie in perfectly with the logo colors. The entire magnet works as a complete package, as opposed to just a haphazard collection of various design elements. Most of our competitors galleries (if they even show one on their website) show magnets that looked like they were designed by first graders!

Here’s the best news… all artwork is free at ARC Marketing! Let us show you what we can do for your next fundraiser. To get started on your free car magnet design, just click here.

What is a Virtual Magnet?

What is a Virtual Magnet, and why is it so important? A Virtual Magnet is really nothing more than a digital copy of the design that our art department is working on (at no charge!) for your new custom car magnet. More than likely, there will be several revisions of your magnet design and a new Virtual Magnet will be emailed to you after each revision so that you can see it and comment on it. If more changes are requested by you, then our art department will create a new, revised Virtual Magnet and email that to you also. Eventually, you will have a car magnet design that you love and then we can begin printing and shipping your new custom car magnets to you.

Remember, the Virtual Magnet is a free service from ARC Marketing and is the most important phase of the entire car magnet process, so get involved!

Car Magnets – Best Design Wins

Perhaps the most critical part of the entire personalized vehicle magnet process is the design. Design work can be time consuming and expensive. Designing your new car magnet can take hours of artist-time. There could be numerous revisions. But it’s all worth the time and effort if you end up with a magnet that you love!

And what is the cost for all this?  Nothing if you are working with ARC Marketing. We do not charge for artwork or design-time.

We think we have the best designers in our industry. Our designs are clean and crisp; easy to read from a distance but able to broadcast your message powerfully.

Are you ready to have one of our designers unleash their mad skills on your next car magnet? Visit our website at www.arcmktg.com and let’s see what we can do together.

Car Magnets Go Viral!

Car Magnets Go Viral… Most people associate the word “viral” with digital devices (cell phones, iPads, computers, etc.) because of their ability to take information and allow an unlimited number of people to eventually see it. Car magnets do the same thing, though on a slightly smaller scale! Imagine that you have a talented ARC Marketing designer create your custom vehicle magnets, and suppose you order 500 of them. Eventually, you sell them all, so now there are 500 cars showing off your fundraising vehicle magnets. How many other cars do you think will see each of those magnets every day, if the car was driving around town? 25? 50? 100? Maybe more. Let’s say 100, just to keep the math simple. 500 cars multiplied by 100 unique views equals… 50,000 views a day. And that’s everyday; 24/7. It never quits, it always broadcasts your school name, team name, etc. The only way it won’t broadcast your message is if that car is in the garage.

Go Viral. Let us design your new custom fundraising car magnet today.

Car Magnets: What makes a strong car magnet design?

Fundraising car magnets can certainly make money for your projects, but they can also create a lot of exposure for your school, your team or for your cause. So the questions is, how do you design your new car magnet to be both a strong fundraising tool and a recognizable symbol around your community? On personalized vehicle magnets, simpler is usually better. Remember, most people are going to be reading your new car magnet from at least a car-length away, and sometimes at freeway speeds, so having a lot of words (which means the letters will be smaller) is going to be less readable than just 2 or 3 words. We like to design our magnets with the most emphasis at the top of the magnet (your school name, your team name, etc.) in large letters. We like to put your logo or mascot (or any artwork) in the center of the magnet. Any other words can be put at the bottom of the car magnet in a slightly smaller font. This is just our suggestion! Since we do not charge for the time our artists spend on your design, why not experiment with 2 different designs? Remember, we do not charge more for extra colors, or for custom shapes, so get creative on your new car magnet.
