Why Car Magnets are so Popular
Fundraising car magnets are great way to raise money for your school, little league team, football team, church and many other groups. Because they are removable (very different from those permanent old-fashion bumper stickers), nobody will object to putting this on their car. It doesn’t matter if it’s a brand new 2020 Cadillac or a rusted out 1999 Honda Civic, your fundraising magnet will look great on any car.
You couldn’t pay me enough to put one of those old bumper stickers on my car. They are almost impossible to take off and you need to scratch and scrape them to remove them. The result is a ruined paint job. Thanks for nothing!
With a fundraising magnet from ARC Marketing, the bumper sticker has finally been perfected. Our magnets are weather-proof and fade-proof. They are easily removable for car washing. The “pull strength” of our magnets is amazing. This means it will stay on your car at freeway speeds.
Are you using our magnets in a fundraiser? I have wonderful news for you. You can easily double, triple or quadruple your money with an ARC Marketing car magnet. Most schools and teams sell their magnets for anywhere from $6 to $10 each, but they only pay an average of $2 each to have us design and print them.
Watch Out for Those Cheap Car Magnets
Choosing the right company to make your magnets is critical to the success of your fundraiser. Choosing the least expensive magnet is going to come back to haunt you. Many car magnet companies use low grade inks, substandard magnetic material, and poorly maintained printing equipment. On top of that, a lot of these companies are buying their cheap magnets from Chinese suppliers; yuck.
ARC Marketing uses the best, most robust outdoor inks. We use the newest one-piece magnetic substrate (cannot de-laminate). We have the best printing equipment in the industry. And all our magnets are made in America with American components.
Here’s why that’s important.
First, let’s talk about low grade inks. Many car magnet companies cut corners everywhere they can in order to make their production costs as low as possible. One way they do this is by using standard printing inks. These inks were designed to be used indoors, so they don’t need to be concerned about fading from sunlight. Newsflash: car magnets are OUTDOOR MAGNETS and they will be exposed to the sun every day. ARC Marketing uses the best outdoor inks and they are designed to be UV Resistant, meaning they will not fade.
Next, let’s talk about substandard magnetic material. Many companies use the least expensive magnetic material they can find. Just like using low grade inks, the reason they do this is to make their magnets as inexpensive as possible. These magnets usually do not have the “pull strength” to stay on your car at freeway speeds. Also, many of these magnets can peel apart. Once the top clear coating peels off, your low-grade inks are exposed to rain, grit and sunlight. These magnets become unreadable in just a few weeks. ARC Marketing uses the newest generation one-piece magnetic material, so there is nothing to peel off. Since we also use the best UV resistant inks, we can print right onto the permanent vinyl magnet (no clear coat to peel off). This means your new fundraising magnet will look brand new for years (we guarantee it!).
Made in America.
That’s more than just a selling point, it’s your guarantee of high quality. Every magnet made by ARC Marketing is designed and printed in the USA. Magnets made by ARC Marketing 5 years ago are on cars across the country and they all still look great.
Don’t ruin your next fundraiser with the cheapest magnet you can find. Saving 10¢ per magnet might make you look like a hero during your next budget meeting, but it’s going to make you look like a zero when all those magnets start getting returned to you for a refund.
We’ll talk about design tips for creating the perfect design in an upcoming post, so stay tuned!
