Turn driving into advertising with custom car magnets.

Seeking a new way to build awareness about your business? Outfit your vehicles with personalized car magnets for quick and effective marketing on the go. Durable, weather-resistant and wind-tunnel-tested, our magnetic signs can get your business name and logo noticed by pedestrians and other drivers – and they can help you make a strong first impression. Matching vehicle magnets are easy to add or remove, and they’re a great option if you want to create a consistent, branded look across multiple trucks, cars or vans.

To create your custom car magnet, start by picking your magnet size and placement: You may want to add branding to a side door, the back of a van – or even both. Then move onto designing, whether you prefer to upload a custom design or explore our assortment of fully customizable templates, with industry-specific options for real estate professionals, contractors, landscapers and more. Your design will be printed on a magnet 0.85 mm thick, and with its matte finish and fade-resistant UV ink printing, your magnetic signs will be ready to stand out wherever the roads take you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How thick are your vehicle magnets?
A: Each of our custom car magnets is 0.85 mm thick.

Q: Can I put a car magnet on a door that is curved?
A: Most likely. Your magnets should be able to stay in place without any issues on doors or side panels with slight curves to them – and they work very well on flat surfaces. If your surface has dips or bumps, we don’t recommend magnets.

Q: How strong is each magnet?
A: The magnetic strength is 90 lbs. per square foot.

Q: How long will my magnet last?
A: With proper care and use, custom car magnets can be used for about two years. At that point, we strongly recommend replacing your magnet to prevent it from falling off your vehicle while you drive.

Q: Should I match my car magnet to the color of my vehicle?
A: We recommend that you create an advertising magnet in a different (yet complementary) color. Not only does this help your magnet stand out to people, it’s the easiest way to create a consistent look across multiple vehicles of differing colors. Just make sure you keep your messaging and design simple and clear.

Q: Can I put a magnet on a new paint job?
A: No, you’ll want to wait for your paint to cure – and this is also the case with a new clear coat or wax job. The recommended wait time is 90 days for a new coat of paint, 60 days for a clear coat and 2 days for wax.

Q: Will I ever have to take car signs off my truck?
A: Yes. We recommend these magnets for short-term use, especially repeat short-term use. Long-term use without caring for the car surface underneath can run the risk of paint damage. If you’re looking for longer-term car branding, check out our car door decals or car window decals.

Q: How often should I take the magnets off my vehicle?
A: At least once a week – and we recommend that you wash and dry the space under your magnet. If you live somewhere that experiences extreme weather, we recommend you remove your magnet more frequently – ideally once a day – to keep your magnet and car paint looking fresh.

Q: Can I wash my car with these magnets on?
A: We recommend removing magnets before washing your vehicle.

Q: Where should I put my car magnets?
A: The best answer for your magnet may depend on your specific vehicle. If you’re working with a larger pickup truck, you can take advantage of the size of a side door with your choice of prominently displayed magnetic truck signs. Magnetic signs for vans may include options for side panels or even the back door – especially opportunistic if you’re often in heavy traffic. That’s why we offer a range of options that can work with a variety of vehicle types and sizes.
