April is usually the month that the new PTA or PTO Officers take over. These new officers have a lot of work to complete over the summer so that everything is ready to run smoothly when school resumes in August.

One thing that is always on the “to-do” list is to line up the fundraisers that will provide the money needed to fund the various projects that they want to complete.

June and July are busy months here at ARC Marketing as hundreds of Parent Groups have us begin designing their new car magnets. You can avoid the rush by contacting us now!

Your Parent/Teacher group can make some serious money, and raise awareness for your school all at the same time.

Let one of our expert designers turn your ideas into a fantastic new car magnet.

Parents love participating in a fund raiser that does not involve huge candy bars, wrapping paper or magazine subscriptions. A custom car magnet will let the parents support their PTA or PTO, and show their pride in their child’s school.

Getting started is easy! Just give us a call at 760-743-6340, or visit our website and request a free “Virtual Magnet” design.

Car Magnets for PTA and PTO Fundraising

Fundraising car magnets for PTA’s and PTO’s are a critical piece of the fundraising puzzle faced by every Parent Group. A custom car magnet will increase school spirit as well as increase your revenue.

By far, the biggest category of sales at ARC Marketing is PTA and PTO Fundraising. With all of the budget cuts, it is no wonder why the Parent Groups have gotten involved. After all, with the massive funding gaps that exist in school districts all across America, the private sector had to get involved.

Most Parent/Teacher groups hold numerous fundraisers throughout the year. They raise money for vital projects and for fun projects, but all fundraising is conducted with the goal of helping their school.

There is an endless list of possible fundraisers available, but only a few raise significant money. And even fewer leave you or the kids with any self-esteem (think about selling big chocolate bars door-to-door; ugh).

Car Magnets for Elementary Schools

How about selling a custom car magnet, designed specifically for your school by a professional artist, and printed on the highest quality magnetic material, using the best UV resistant inks… WINNER! And you don’t need to go out of your way to sell them. Once you put one on your car, and the cars of the other PTA Board Members, everyone will see them and everyone will want one. They practically sell themselves! It’s just the opposite with the candy fundraisers. You need to work too hard just to convince someone to buy a 5,000 chocolate bar or barrel of caramel corn. No Thanks!

Cub Scout Car Magnets

Cub Scout car magnets are the biggest portion of our Scouting Magnets for Fundraising.

We design and produce magnets for all branches of scouting; Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

A Cub Scout magnet can do several things for your pack, but the two most important things are: 1) create awareness for your Cub Scout Pack, and 2) provide an amazingly powerful fundraising tool.

Your Cub Scout Pack has a lot of expenses; you are constantly looking for ways to raise money for all of your worthwhile activities. Let us design a beautiful car magnet that will give all of your friends of scouting the opportunity to show off your Cub Scout Pack logo and help you raise money.

Here is the magnet designed for Cub Scout Pack 10, from Burlington, New Jersey. This classic design features the Cub Scout Logo with the traditional Cub Scout colors.

Here’s a little information about Pack 10, from their website:
Pack 10 received its’ first charter in 1986. We serve our community by giving leadership and opportunities for boys between the ages of 6-11 to learn how to become better citizens, stewards of the environment, how to belong and contribute to their family, and what it means to be honest and loyal to his friends and to himself. Currently we have over 90 boys in grades 1 through 5. We maintain involvement in the community by participating in clean-up days, building scarecrows every Halloween for the Municipal Building, and helping our Scouts become better citizens.

The Wood Acres School

School Car Magnets are the biggest category of sales here at ARC Marketing. We design and print custom magnets for hundreds of schools every year. Some are somewhat basic; an oval or round magnet that includes all of the basic elements. Those basic elements are:

  • School Name
  • School Colors
  • School Mascot or Logo
  • Town Name

Some schools challenge us to get even more creative by using unique outside shapes and uncommon themes.

The Wood Acres School wanted us to design a car magnet that resembled a postage stamp, so the design-team at ARC Marketing created the above magnet. Intricately die-cut along the edges to resemble the perforated edge of a postage stamp, and post marked with their home town of Marietta, Georgia, this is one of our all-time favorite magnet designs!

Here is a little more information about the school, in their own words…

Latitude 33° 59´ 41.27 ̋ North   Longitude 84° 25´ 47.25̋ West

That’s The Wood Acres School geographically speaking!  With a huge compass rose emblazoned on the plaza of our school to being known as the Navigators with a bright green alligator as our mascot, The Wood Acres School is a well established, well known, and well respected private independent school in metropolitan Atlanta.  Students begin learning @ the Woods as early as two years old and graduate after completing 8th grade to continue their education in private, public, magnet, charter, or specialty high schools.  Wood Acres has been educating the future since 1969 and is proud of both its rich traditions as well as its focus on developing resilient, compassionate, engaging, and articulate young men and women ready to tackle life and living in the 21st century and beyond.  Besides holding regional accreditation with distinction, The Wood Acres School is also an International Spanish Academy through the Embassy of Spain with outstanding second language learning opportunities beginning with the Three’s and culminating with an 8th grade capstone trip to Spain.  Not only do the arts thrive @ the Woods, but also STEM has a home here with three dedicated science labs and a nationally recognized experiential science program as the adopted curriculum.  All this is nestled on 10 bucolic forested acres with walking paths, playfields, and places to laugh, learn, and linger with friends, old and new.  “The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”  Perhaps Ralph Waldo Emerson was imagining a not-so-little school tucked away from the distractions of everyday life where children have the freedom to grow, learn, and enjoy being a child.  Experience The Wood Acres School today.  Visit our website at to learn more.

Fundraising Car Magnets

Car Magnets are HOT

School Car Magnets for Fundraising

Car magnets are hot, and it’s easy to see why! They make your message visible to your entire community. They also make amazingly easy fundraising items.

Here’s a classic example of a car magnet success story…

Meadowbrook Elementary School PTA was looking for a new fundraiser. In the past, they had tried selling magazine subscriptions, chocolate bars, wrapping paper and similar items to raise money for their programs. All of the money raised from these fundraisers went to the school for new playground equipment, vests for the crossing guards, gifts for teachers and many other good causes. The sales usually meant that the children had to go door-to-door to sell these items. Obviously, this is not the safest way to conduct a fundraiser. In addition, almost everyone had a very good reason for not buying those products… “We already subscribe to every magazine we want”, or “I’m on a diet; I don’t want chocolate in the house!” This type of fundraiser was becoming unpopular and obsolete.

Then the Meadowbrook PTA had a brilliant idea. They had seen other schools and groups that had car magnets designed specifically for them. They searched the internet and found several companies that offered custom car magnets, and one of them was ARC Marketing. Most of the other websites made it difficult to get basic information, and even more difficult to figure out how to get started on their new car magnet. The ARC Marketing website was clear, concise and made it very easy to get started (just click on the Free Virtual Magnet button

Clicking on the Virtual Magnet button was the beginning of a very easy process to get their new magnet designed. Answering a few simple questions was all that was needed for an artist at ARC Marketing to create the first “Virtual Magnet”. This first Virtual Magnet was created and emailed directly to the president at the Meadowbrook PTA. After showing the Virtual Magnet to the board members, they requested a few changes via email. Within an hour, the revised Virtual Magnet was emailed back to the president. One more simple change was requested by the PTA, and again, another Virtual Magnet was emailed to the president. The board unanimously agreed that this version of the new Meadowbrook Elementary car magnet was perfect!


The PTA ordered 500 car magnets at $1.55 each (with UPS shipping charges, the total came to $815.00). They sold them for $7.50 each (our suggested fundraising price is $5 each, but most schools sell them for $6, $7.50 or $10 each). After selling all 500 magnets, the total amount collected came to $3,750. Subtract the $815 cost and they made a profit of almost $3,000!

Can you think of another fundraising item that returns a profit like that?

Here’s another benefit of using car magnets instead of big chocolate bars… awareness. Now, 500 cars have the Meadowbrook Elementary School car magnet on it. It is almost impossible to drive around town and not see dozens of cars with the Meadowbrook Elementary magnet.

Want another benefit? Car Magnets do not have a “shelf life”. If you have unsold chocolate bars after your fundraiser, they go bad after a certain date. Any unused magnets can sit in a storeroom until the next school year (if you have any leftovers), and they will be as good as the day we delivered them to you. Let us help you make your next fundraiser a success!

And car magnets are not just for schools…

Little League Baseball Teams make a lot of money with car magnets, as do Youth Football Teams, Swim TeamsDance Schools,Elementary SchoolsMiddle SchoolsHigh Schools, you name it.

We make car magnets for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts.

We make car magnets for Church groups,YMCA and Kid’s Camps.

We make car magnets for Cancer Awareness,Autism Awareness and Epilepsy Awareness.

We make car magnets for Animal Shelters and Humane Societies.

In fact, I don’t think that there is a group in America that would not benefit from the revenue and awareness created by a custom car magnet from ARC Marketing.

Your group can benefit too, and it is so easy. Just click here to get started on your Free Virtual Magnet.

Custom Shaped Car Magnets

ARC Marketing does not charge extra for custom shaped car magnets, but what is the best outside shape to use?

For durability, the best car magnet shape is either a circle or an oval. Both oval magnets and round magnets have a single, unbroken, continuous outside edge. Unlike squares, rectangles or intricate die cut shapes, round and oval magnets don’t have any sharp corners that can begin to tear over time.

But if a unique, irregular outside shape will make your magnet look better, then go with that! We do not charge extra for custom shapes. We also do not charge more for extra colors, so no need to compromise there either!

ARC Marketing is America’s leader in custom car magnets. Custom means just that… custom!
