Magnetic Sign Applications

Magnetic Sign Tips

Increase the effectiveness of your magnetic signs by:

  • Including easy-to read business contact information
  • Adding logos and contrasting color
  • Adding your brand slogan
  • Displaying a “call to action” such as a phone number or website


  • Magnetic signs can only be used on smooth steel surfaces. They cannot be used on simulated wood-grain panels, fiberglass panels, panels that have been repaired with a non-steel filler (such as “Bondo”), or on any corrugated or other irregular surfaces.
  • If necessary, magnetic signs can easily be cut with a razor or X-Acto knife to work around body molding or other obstructions on the vehicle.
  • A magnetic sign should never be applied to a newly painted vehicle. Allow at least 60 days for fresh paint to cure.


  • Due to the many variables and complex nature of automotive finishes, special care must be taken to protect your vehicle: check the area behind the magnetic sign weekly and move the sign as necessary to prevent any discoloration or clouding of the automotive clear coat.
  • Always remove the magnetic sign by lifting from the center of the two opposite sides - never start at the corners, as this may stretch the sign material.
  • Once the signs are removed, wash and dry the vehicle and all sign surfaces. This keeps moisture from collecting between the signs and the vehicle surface, which can potentially damage a vehicle’s finish.
  • To clean the signs, use a sponge and a mild soapy water solution.
  • Magnetic signs should be stored either on a flat, even surface, or rolled up (lettering to the outside) around a cylinder with a diameter of at least 3”.
  • Never store magnetic signs in a hot vehicle, as they may permanently warp.
