To get you started with some inspiration, here are 12 creative uses for custom-printed business card, postcard, and car magnets.

Business Card Magnets

Our business card magnets are available in one standard 2″ x 3.5″ size. They are printed on a 17 pt. UV-coated durable adhesive material with a glossy surface. Place them on your refrigerator, magnetic display board, or other metal-based surfaces. They are designed for indoor use and are easy to apply and remove.

1. Restaurant Delivery Services

Sometimes, take out is the best option for dinner. A magnet as a promotional item will easily remind customers of this fact, especially if they put it on their fridge!

2. Real Estate Agent Advertisement

Business card magnets are an essential promotional item. To speak practically, magnets are underrated because they are a necessity in the home, yet people don’t normally go out of their way to purchase them. Whatever comes in handy is what is used. So if you’re passing out business card magnets as an ad to potential customers, you’re bound to get some business. Your name, and maybe even your face, will become familiar if it ends up on someone’s fridge.

3. Mechanic Information

At some point, without fail, a mechanic’s information will come in handy to any person who owns or leases a vehicle. Essentially, all you need to do is print your business card on a magnet and offer it to customers as a lasting reminder of your services.

4. Coffee Shop Merch

Nothing says “I’m a fan” more than merchandise. Chains like Starbucks or the smaller, yet notable ones like Philz Coffee sell merchandise in the various forms of t-shirts, mugs, and tumblers. However, as a small business, if large scale merch isn’t an option, consider smaller, yet convenient items like magnets! The design can include your logo and a nice quote, such as “A great day starts with a freshly brewed cup.” — could this be any more true?

5. Just for Fun

Who doesn’t love a good, humorous magnet? Printing fun quotes or designs on a magnet is a creative small gift or stocking stuffer idea. You can even generate revenue by selling your own designs on an ecommerce platform like Etsy. Our magnets start at 25 quantity, making any one of these options doable.

Postcard Magnets

Postcard magnets are also printed on a 17 pt. UV-coated durable adhesive material. They are available in square, landscape, or portrait format in a variety of sizes – choose between 3″ x 3″, 4″ x 4″, 4″ x 6″ or 5″x 7″.

6. Save the Date Announcements

A save the date card is something you send out when you have a very special event planned, and want to make sure that your guests are available before sending out the actual invite. Save the dates are most commonly used for weddings. In our opinion, putting a save the date on a magnet will easily remind your guests about your big day, even after they have RSVP’d.

7. Family Photos

Just as you have your family photos in frames, you can print them to display on any magnetic surface. During the holiday season, postcard magnets can also stand in place of a traditional mailed holiday card.

8. Calendars

“What day is it?” It’s safe to say that at some point or another, we all ask this question. A handy postcard-sized calendar magnet is a compact, yet convenient way to display a year-long calendar as an easy point of reference. These postcard calendars can also be used as branded promotional items.

9. Birth Announcements

A postcard magnet is a perfect way to send the news to close friends and family know that your little one has arrived! It makes for a lasting keepsake item. Who doesn’t love a cute baby on a magnet?!

Car Magnets

For quick advertising on-the-go, choose car magnets! We offer an array of shapes and sizes to elevate your design. Whether it be a logo, promotion, or general information, you are sure to make a lasting impression.

10. Pizza Delivery Vehicles

One of the best ways to advertise your business is by branding your delivery cars. An inexpensive way to do that is by using custom car magnets.

11. Repair Services

Plumbing systems are, undoubtedly, one of those things that can go terribly wrong, both at a moment’s notice and at any time of the day. That’s why it’s important to make your business known! With a visible car magnet stamped to your company vehicles, you’ll be able to bring in more clientele.

12. Political Campaigns

When it comes to any election, one of the most important things you can do for a campaign strategy is to be visible! Whether that’s simply displaying the face and name of the candidate running, along with a slogan, or encouraging people to register to vote — there is no wrong way to promote with visibility, so why not do it with a car magnet?
