Car magnets for PTA and PTO Fundraising

PTA and PTO Fundraising

Welcome to the new PTA and PTO Officers

School’s out for summer, and that means relaxing days, hanging out with the kids at the pool. Unless you are one of the new officers in your PTA or PTO.

 

If you are one of those lucky souls, then your summer will also include planning for the upcoming school year. The duties and functions of your PTA/PTO are many and varied, but there is one constant…fundraising. Your PTA/PTO will be constantly raising money to help your school. The money you raise and gift to your school might be helping to purchase things as important as computers for the students, or even florescent vests for your Crossing Guards. There are hundreds of ways that your donated money will be used.

 

If you Google “PTA fundraising ideas” you’ll get dozens of ideas, and most of them are very labor-intensive. In fact, they will resemble a full-time job. Most of these fundraisers will make you scratch your head in disbelief (will these events actually make money?). To get an idea of what I’m talking about, just click on the link from PTO Today.  I can’t even guess at how much preparation these fundraisers require to pull off successfully, but these type of events are critical to fundraising.

 

Your fundraising year does not include a single event that will meet your financial goals by itself. PTA and PTO fundraising is a year-long effort that will include several different events. A successful fundraising year is a mixture of various money making opportunities.

 

The easiest fundraisers are those that do not involve scheduled events (car washes, bake sales, etc.), but involve sales of merchandise to the parents of your students. Again, you can Google this and get a lot of ideas, but most of the items offered to PTA/PTO’s are pretty lame. But there are some items that you can sell that don’t insult your intelligence, like car magnets customized for you school (I’m a little biased because ARC Marketing makes the highest quality car magnets in America).

 

Car magnets should be part of your fundraising mix. We will do all the design work for free (we have awesome artists who know how to create cool designs), and we’ll print them and ship them to you in 2 weeks or less. Car magnets can be stored forever, so you can sell them all school year long. And you can make a lot of money with a custom car magnet. For example, if your school bought 500 oval magnets (customized with your school colors, your school mascot, your school name, etc.) and sold them for $6 each (that’s our suggested selling price), you would make $2,260.00!!! Not bad!

 

So, here’s what you need to do next; have one of our artists start working on your design. It’s free, it’s easy and it’s fun. All that we need to know from you is a little bit about your school (name, mascot, etc.) To get started, just click here and complete a short questionnaire. In about one day, your new magnet design will magically appear in your in-box and you’re ready to go. Rather talk to a real person? Give us a call at 760-743-6340 and we can handle everything over the phone.

Happy Fundraising!

 

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”.

Let us help you get started with a free magnet design created just for you by one of our expert designers. It’s fast, it’s easy and it’s free. Just fill out a simple form, giving us an idea of how you would like your magnet to look, and we’ll get a design to you ASAP. Just click here, or give us a call at 760-743-6340.

Car Magnets for Middle Schools

Kilmer Middle School car magnet

Kilmer Middle School has ordered magnets from us 3 times over the past several years. Each time, they have opted for the same design (why fix it if it isn’t broken, right?). This magnet design can be seen on hundreds of cars around the Vienna Virginia area.
The original magnets (first printed in 2010) are most likely still on their original cars and probably still look perfect. Why? ARC Marketing uses the best materials, the best inks and the most modern printing equipment in the car magnet industry. Our magnets do not fade, will not de-laminate and will look vibrant and new for years.
Your school should consider a fundraiser with a custom car magnet from ARC Marketing. Getting started is easy, and all design-work is free. You will work with one of our artists to get just the “look” you want, so call us today at 760-743-6340. Or visit our website at www.arcmktg.com.
