A Basic Guide to Making Flexible Magnetic Signs

If your business is not taking advantage of flexible magnets, you are missing out on a world of opportunities to grow and save. Magnetic signs present an affordable alternative to printing directly onto your vehicle. They give you the added advantage of being able to put them on and remove them as and when necessary. JLP Company Inc. provides flexible magnets and magnet rolls to make the best magnetic signs for your business. Let’s look into the basics of making flexible magnet signs.

What are magnetic signs?

To breakdown magnetic signs, it is safe to say that they are vinyl signs that have been attached to a magnetized substrate. The most important thing to remember is that the thickness of the magnet is directly related to its magnetic strength. This magnetic strength determines its pull strength and stability during application. There are a number of different substrates that you can choose from to meet your specific requirement.

Tools

To make magnetic signs using printable magnetic rolls, you need a few tools such as

  • Safety ruler
  • Corner rounder
  • Heavy duty utility knife

Process

You first need to cut the corners of your magnetic rolls before applying the graphics. The rounding of the corners is done to reducer the aerodynamic drag of the sign as the car picks up speed. It helps the magnetic sign lasts longer and maintain its desired position, resulting in little to no scratches on the vehicle’s paint.

Apart from flexible magnets for vehicles, you can also make magnetic business cards and magnetic door signs. You can also use a digital printer depending on the substrate you are using.

Installation

When installing flexible magnetic signs, make sure to avoid migration. This happens when moisture gets trapped between the vehicle surface and the magnetic sign. Various chemical reactions often occur resulting in permanent staining of the vehicle surface.
