All commercial grade, full color with a nice finish that makes them stand out. Our magnets stick and do not curl.
Q. I want to design my magnet myself. How Do I do this?
A. A business card magnet is basically a small bill-board. You want it to be eye-catching but not overpowering. The goal is getting you views. Your magnet, besides containing your name and reach information, should have a headline (What problem you solve), your logo, a photo (you, your service vehicle, store front, etc.) The type face used should be easily readable. Keep it simple. Do not cram too much information on the card. At the least, do include your name, title, company name, address, phone and fax numbers, email and web address.

A. If you sell wholesale or retail items, make sure you include a business card magnet in the box your item is packed in so you can promote more sales.
