Magnetic signs are a cost effective way to promote your business without having to permanently apply and remove signage. They can be easily removed at the end of the working day or over the weekend, and are ideal for people who use their own vehicles for work such as estate agents, builders, contractors etc.
The most important thing to remember when running a magnetic sign business is that it’s a commission based job. Typically you won’t get a steady pay-check like other jobs, so you need to plan accordingly and make sure you have enough money saved up during slow periods. Also, it’s a good idea to consult with a tax consultant before starting your new business to make sure you aren’t missing any deductions or paying too much in taxes each year.
When applying a magnetic car sign, it’s important to consider the type of surface you will be adhering the sign to. Some non-metal surfaces, such as fiberglass or plastic, may not adhere to the magnet. This is often a problem for people who have had body work done on their vehicle that includes bondo or other non-metal body fillers.
To create your own custom magnetic sign blanks, you can start by cutting the desired size from a roll of 30 mil sheeting using a heavy-duty utility knife, a Olfa knife and a safety ruler. It’s also a good idea to round out the corners of the magnetic sign blank, which reduces the aerodynamic drag caused by air lifting a corner and keeps the graphic in place. magnetic signs
