Vehicle Magnets for advertising on the go
Our vehicles magnets can be used on cars or any other vehicle that has a flat metallic surface. We offer various standard sizes which are 400mm x 300mm, 500mm x 300mm and 600mm x 400mm. If none of those sizes suit your requirements, we can create custom sizes easily and quickly. We always recommend cleaning the surface before applying your car magnets to ensure the best possible bond and to avoid any scratching. If you are on the move, have sales reps or are looking for a cost effective form of brand awareness and advertising, our magnets are a must. We use top quality magnetic material and long lasting inks, which with care, will last year many years. Other uses for custom size vehicle magnets would be for construction vehicle information, can be stuck onto chromadek steel signage for a temporary message or for use on containers and large fridges. Our car magnet and custom size vehicle magnets are the next best thing to permanent vehicle branding. Contact us if you have any questions.

What is CMYK?
CMYK is an ink format. Representing cyan, magenta, yellow and black. These colours are then printed in certain percentages to make up all the colours on the print. Our machines have additional colours light cyan and light magenta allowing us a larger colour gamut. Another common ink configuration is RGB which represents, red, green and blue.
Accepted File Formats
If we are not going to be doing the design for you, we ask you to kindly send through your artwork in one of the following formats. PDf format published to scale, a Corel Draw file ensuring all fonts are converted to curves and a JPG image save to scale with a preferable resolution of 300dpi.
Rich Black vs 100% Black
A question that very few ask. In a CMYK ink system 100% black is printed using the black cartridge only. This makes for a slightly dull or flat black which is very acceptable however to make the black on your print a bit darker or "richer" we print using a combination of all colours including 100% black ink. Keep that in mind when doing your artwork.
What is Font Outlining?
If a font being used is not present on another system, the system automatically uses a default font and often without any warning. To guarantee the correct fonts are printed, all fonts should be outlined or converted to curves. However note that this makes the text uneditable.
Various medias will have different coatings. All the media we use is coated specifically for the use in our machines. Things to keep in mind are if a media is glossy, it generally means it cannot be written on using ink pens. Other forms of coating are matte and UV standard or UV spot.
What Media to Choose?
Well that is certainly up to you and should be thought of at the design stage. We have a wide variety of media for you to print on, such as vinyl, pvc, canvas, contravision, multiple types of paper, wallpaper and more. We are always here if you are uncertain or have any questions.
