Magnetic Sign Care


Preparation

  • Always clean BOTH the magnetic sign as well as the surface you are going to apply it to.
  • Always apply to a dry surface.  If you put a magnetic sign on a wet car it can trap moisture and cause paint problems
  • Magnetic signs are not as flexible in cold weather.  Magnetic signs can also freeze onto a car if it is cold enough.  Be very careful removing your magnetic signs if the weather is below freezing.

Position

  • Only install on a smooth metal surface.
  • Plastic doors, doors with body filler, and fiberglass cars are NOT suitable for magnetic signs.
  • Do not attach magnetic signs over a ridge, trim or rust spot that could keep them from laying flat.
  • If you position your magnet wrong, remove it and reattach it. Do not pull it across the surface of the paint of your car.  It could stretch or damage the paint and/or sign
  • Do not apply magnets to horizontal surfaces such as a car hood

Removal & Cleaning

  • When taking the sign off of your car, be careful not to bend or crease the signs corners
  • Remove the magnets from time to time to clean both the magnet and the car
  • You can clean the surface of your magnets with a wet paper towel or rag. 
  • To remove stains or smudges you can use a product like 409 or Windex
  • Be sure to dry your magnet completely after cleaning

 Storage

  • When not in use, store your vehicle magnets in a clean dry place.
  • It is best to store them flat  or magnetized to a flat metal surface.
  • Do not store signs touching each other.
  • Do not store heavy object on top of or against your magnetic signs.
