Football Car Magnets for Fundraising

Here we go again. It’s almost time for your future NFL stars to strap on the gear and begin getting ready for football season.

Long before the Opening Kickoff, your team and your league are busy making sure that everything is in place for the upcoming season.

If you’re one of those parents who don’t have the time or the inclination to join the board and help, you might be unaware of all the work that goes in behind the scenes. Already, your board is working to make sure that the fields are available for practice, months before the first game. The coaches are going over the rosters to make sure that every kid gets a chance to play at their best position.

The cheer coach is going over the cheer routines that the cheerleaders will be practicing, then performing for the fans.

In short, there are many people already working to make sure that the football season goes off on schedule.

One of these hard-working people is your Fundraising Manager. This person’s job is to ensure that there is enough money for everything after the parents have paid all the league and team fees. Those fees do not cover all expenses and your Fundraising Manager will do everything in her power to cover that funding gap with creative fundraisers.

She is going to run about 5 to 10 different fundraisers during the season. Keeping that many balls in the air isn’t easy, so she will need a mix of “high profit – high labor” fundraisers and a few “low profit – low labor” fundraisers. Well, we have a fundraiser that is both “high profit” and “low labor” (there aren’t many).

A car magnet fundraiser should be part of your marketing mix. The hardest part about a car magnet fundraiser is designing the magnet. Guess what? Our award-winning art department is going to handle that for you for FREE! Yeah, you heard that right. This is going to save you either $100 in art-time or save you about 5 hours of computer work (if you know your way around the graphics software).

So, let’s get this started. Email us a copy of your logo and we’ll start working on your design. Even easier, fill out our “Virtual Magnet Request” and we’ll have all the info we need to design your custom car magnet and mail you a free sample. You can get to the Virtual Magnet Request by clicking here. You can also call us at 760-743-6340.

Let’s Go!

Youth Football Fundraising

Fundraising Car Magnets

Youth Football Fundraising Car Magnets

It’s June, and that means football season is not too far away! Registration has already begun (with some leagues, it’s already finished) and soon your young football stars will be strapping on the pads, tightening their chin-straps and getting ready to rumble.

All youth sports are expensive, and youth football is among the most expensive. There are expenses that must be paid for by each parent for your player (uniforms, helmets, pads, etc.) and there are expenses that are paid by the teams and the league. Just because these are team and league expenses does not mean that the parents don’t ultimately pay for them. They are wrapped into your league fees.

Fundraising plays a huge part in keeping these league fees low. I doubt that any youth football league is not involved in fundraising to some degree, and most are deeply involved in fundraising. It’s critical to the continued success of the league.

I Googled “Youth Football Fundraising Ideas” and the usual suspects show up every time. None really look like “money makers” to me, and most will be downright embarrassing for your kids (are you trying to scar them for life?). I mean really? Take a look at these…

  • Rent-a-kid (expect a visit from Child Protective Services)
  • Sell batteries (batteries? Really?)
  • Sell team jewelry (where do you get team jewelry to sell?)
  • Mow-a-Thon (your kids won’t even mow your lawn)
  • Scavenger Hunts (how do you make money at this?)
  • Punkin’ Chunkin’ (honestly, this is on the list. What the heck is Punkin’ Chunkin’?)
  • Neighborhood Chores (again, good luck getting your kids to do your neighbor’s chores)
  • $1 Candy Bars (Won’t make much money but will provide a mouthful of cavities)
  • Face Painting (ugh, no thanks)

How about doing something that won’t destroy your kid’s self-esteem, will bring awareness to your team and will make everyone proud? Yeah, I’m talking about customized car magnets. Our magnets are the best on the planet and our designers can create a magnet that an NFL Team would be proud of.

Consider this… If you had us design and print just 250 magnets, and you sold them for $6 each (most teams get $10 each), then you would be able to pay for all 250 magnets, plus you would make about $1,000 profit. You’d need to sell 2,000 $1 candy bars to make that much (your local dentist could sponsor this one).

Let us show you how easy a Car Magnet Fundraiser can be. We’ll do the design-work. We’ll do the printing. We’ll ship right to your door. You just let the parents know they’re available and start collecting the money. No humiliation, no calories, no Pumpkin Mess to clean up.

For more information, and a free, no obligation magnet design, just give us a call at 760-743-6340 or visit our website at www.arcmktg.com.

Youth Football and Cheerleading car magnets

Cheer and Football car magnets

Cheer leading and Youth Football car magnets

Okay, I know it’s early Spring, and most of our young athletes are getting ready for baseball and softball. But if you are also a “Youth Football Parent”, you should also be planning for late summer football fundraising.

Also, if you are a “Cheerleader Parent”, fundraising is an important part of your life.

I’m not taking sides on the “which is more important” issue of cheerleading versus football (The cheerleaders feel that the football players are there to entertain the crowd in between cheer routines. The football players feel that the cheerleaders are there to entertain the crowd in between plays). Regardless of which group you side with, fundraising is still very important.

Car magnets make the easiest fundraiser ever. Car magnets are easy to store, easy to sell and create a lot of awareness for the cheerleading squad and for the football team. Your young stars are going to love the exposure that these custom car magnets provide. They’re going to feel like rock stars once hundreds of cars in your town show up with their team’s car magnets on them. And you can make a lot of money! If your team can sell just 300 magnets, you can make a profit of over $1,200! To see our “Profit Calculator”, just click here.

We have been making car magnets for Youth Football and Youth Cheer teams for over 10 years. Our design team knows what it takes to create the perfect design in order to make your team look like pros. Compare the designs shown on our “Football Gallery Page” with the designs shown on the other car magnet sites (if they even show them). You are going to see a big difference! Ours are professionally designed and look like an NFL team would have designed them. There’s look amateurish, and look like they were designed by a 12-year old. The design really matters, and our designers are the best in this industry. You can view our Design Gallery by clicking here.

And guess what? You won’t pay a penny for our design work. In fact, we’ll provide with a free initial design, then fine tune it with multiple renditions (all at no charge or obligation) and after all of that you still don’t owe us anything… even if you don’t go forward with an order! Find another car magnet company who will do that for you. To get started on your free magnet design, just click here.

Of course, if you are “old school” and don’t want to mess with on-line requests, you can always give us a call at 760-743-6340 and talk to one of our humans!

Car Magnets for Youth Football

It’s the middle of August and the big boys (the National Football League) are strapping on their gear and banging helmets, getting ready for the 2015 season. After a few more preseason games, they start playing for real.

Millions of young Americans are also strapping on their gear, getting ready for the upcoming youth football season. Almost everyone loves football. Most people will admit that it has overtaken baseball as America’s Favorite Sport.

Youth football leagues are everywhere. There’s the original league, Pop Warner, but there are others. Some are quite large and well established, such as American Youth Football.

If you are a parent of a child participating in youth football, you know the costs are staggering. Just the equipment costs (helmet, pads, cleats, uniform) will cost you hundreds of dollars each season. Add some league fees, coaching fees, etc. and you’re going to be way over $500. Some of these expenses are shared by everyone on the team or league (league fees, travel expenses, etc.). Some families have 2 or more kids playing, so their costs are even crazier.

It’s no wonder that fundraising has become an important, and permanent part of the football season. There are many ways that your team or league can raise money for the shared expenses. Just Google “Youth Football Fundraisers” and you will see dozens of ideas. Unfortunately, most of the are pretty lame (Rent A Kid, Selling Batteries, etc.). Really? Who would want to do that?

Obviously, we think a custom car magnet designed specifically for your team will make you a lot more money and not cause the humiliation of selling batteries door-to-door (who thinks up these sad fundraising ideas?).

A properly designed car magnet (we have the best car magnet artists in the industry) will sell itself, and bring a lot of pride to all of your young football players. With a background designing promotional products for the NFL, we know just what it takes to make your league look professional. We do not charge for artwork, and you are welcome to use our art department to help create your new fundraising car magnet.

It’s a very simple process. The first step is to fill out our “Virtual Magnet Request Form” found on our website. This form provides our artist with the basic information they need to get your design started. After looking at your preliminary design, you suggest any changes and our art department gets on it ASAP. As soon as you have the look you want, we print and ship the magnets to your door. All you need to do is start taking bags of cash to the bank!

Getting your free design is easy. Just go to our website and fill out the Free Virtual Magnet Request, and one of your uber-talented artists will design a magnet that would make an NFL Team proud.

Football Car Magnets

 

As mentioned in previous blog posts, the cost of High School Sports is very high, and getting higher all the time. Car magnets provide a very easy, very profitable fundraising opportunity.

The Braintree Football Boosters had us design and produce this magnet for to assist with their fundraising efforts.

Here is a little more info about Braintree Football, in their words…

It has been said that a child participating in football will never regret the experience.  Football has been called the ultimate sport because it teaches students valuable lessons in team work, leadership, friendships, and is said to be the pulse of a school’s climate.  It provides an outlet for students that builds confidence, self-esteem, a feeling of contribution, and a pride in ones’ self and community.  Every student-athlete in Braintree High School’s football program is developed to their highest potential in order to graduate champions in the classroom, on the field, and in life.  The entire Braintree High School community has great vision for our football players and is investing in them on and off the field, challenging them, and instilling strong character values in them.  This fall has been their time to shine, and not just because they’re wearing new uniforms.  Although they do look good!

Through wear and tear, demand for different sizes, program growth, and most importantly, budgetary restraints on the athletic program, the responsibility of purchasing new uniforms for 90 players had to be funded through ancillary sources.  Welcome the BHS Football Booster Club!  In operation since 2011, having taken over for similar type fundraising group, “Friends of Braintree Football,” The Booster Club is comprised of players’ parents, supported by the coaching staff.  This dedicated group of volunteers has spent hours meeting, planning, ordering, shopping, writing letters, manning snack bars, raffle tables, and golf tournaments, in between knocking on countless doors asking for donations.  And we did it.  We raised enough money to purchase Under Armour royal blue “Home” jerseys, white “Away” jerseys, and pants, for all 90 members of the BHS Varsity and Junior Varsity football teams.  Why?  For the players.  How?  Because of you.

As a result of friends and suppliers like you, who work with us on our fundraising ideas (thank you for your patience!), we were able to equip our student-athletes with new uniforms and let them experience BHS WAMPS PRIDE.  Because We Are Making Players Successful!

On behalf of the entire BHS WAMPS Football community, thank you for your time and talent.

 

 

Magnets for High School Football Booster Clubs

Car Magnets for High School Booster Clubs

Booster Club car magnets are an amazing way to raise money for your High School Football Team.

Friday Night Lights. In most towns, this is a religion… High School Football is the only game in town.

Most high schools have a football booster club, organized and run by a handful of parents who want nothing more than to have fun on Friday night, watch their sons play the game, and help the team with a little financial assistance. Unless these parents are filthy rich, this financial assistance is obtained through fundraising.

We all know that there are an unlimited number of fundraising items out there and you probably already know what those are. But most of those fundraising items are horribly ineffective. They might raise a little money, but probably not. Most of the fundraising items on the market today rely on a “guilt-trip” to sell. Think about it; the last time you bought one of those huge chocolate bars or a neighborhood discount card, did you really want it? Or did you buy it just because you felt you should. Even worse, did you say “Thanks, but no thanks”? Would an avid High School football fan say no to a professionally designed, high-quality car magnet? Heck no! They would buy that in a heartbeat and slap it on their car immediately. They’d probably buy several; one for each car in their family.

Car Magnets by ARC Marketing provide an alternative fundraising item that not only raises money (a lot of money!), but also increase team spirit. If you ran a fundraiser using custom magnets, soon your community would be covered with them. Imagine hundreds of cars with your High Schools football helmet on them.

Let us show your booster club what we can do with your school’s logo. We would love to have one of our talented designers show you how your new car magnet will look at no charge. It’s easy! Just fill out our “Virtual Magnet Request” form, hit the submit button, and in about a day we will email your new magnet design to you. It couldn’t be easier! For you old-timers that have not yet embraced digital technology, you can always send us a telegram, or phone us at 760-743-6340. Either way, now is the time!
