Important Car Magnet Pre-Order Information

Before placing your order, we suggest making sure that the part of your vehicle is metal and that a magnet will stick to the area of focus. Some vehicle manufacturers will substitute aluminum for lightweight doors. Other possible surface area issues arise from aftermarket fiberglass replacement parts and areas repaired with Bondo. If your car was a SEC Car magnet example on back of BMWsecond-hand purchase, don’t assume that the site is entirely metal. Instead, take a lightweight refrigerator magnet that you know sticks to metal and test the area where you intend to apply your vehicle magnet.

At the same time, we suggest measuring the area to ensure your custom car magnet will fit the space. Make sure the area is flat and void of any folds, creases, or other body panel formations that will prevent a smooth solid contact. We’ve found in the past that if the magnet does not have a stable application, surface airflow has the potential to lift the vehicle magnet off the car body. The result is a lost magnet when driving down the road. The magnetic strength of our printed magnets is powerful, but airflow is usually more forceful than most people realize.

A helpful tip for selecting the right size and shape: Print and cut a piece of paper with a similar design, including text. Tape your cutout onto your car or truck, and then stand back to see how it might look. Customers have often learned that their size is too small or too big, depending on their design.

Application Prep for your Custom Car Magnets

car wax application

It is essential to clean the vehicle surface and back of the magnetic material before application. In addition, apply a thin layer of car wax to the vehicle surface and back side of the magnet, especially during the summer months. For car magnets with heavy sun exposure, a slightly heavier coat of wax is recommended during application. A heavier wax coating may help prevent damage from trapped water, dirt, and road chemicals.

Car Magnet Application Process

Let one edge of the magnet contact the vehicle in the desired position. Then let the magnetic force work as it positions the sign from starting edge to the opposite edge. If the car magnet is out of place, peel it off and repeat. Do not slide the car magnet to obtain the proper position because any dirt trapped underneath the magnet may damage the vehicle’s surface coating. Ensure your personalized car magnet is smooth against the vehicle with no trapped air underneath. In winter, for conformability purposes, the temperature of the magnet should be a minimum of 50°F, but the temperature of the vehicle surface matters little.

Some surfaces on your car or truck may require special attention. For example, vehicle surfaces that contain factory decals, pinstripes, and molded body panels may cause a separation between the surface and the magnet. Even a thin break between the magnet and vehicle surface may be all that is needed for air flow to get under the magnet and peel it off while driving down the road. We suggest checking these areas every week for the first 90 days.

Custom Car Magnet Maintenance

Temporarily remove your custom car magnet before sending your vehicle through an automatic car wash. Many car washes use chemicals that may damage your car magnet.

For vehicles (and many external applications), remove the magnet weekly and dry the vehicle surface and the back of the sign. Doing this will help keep moisture from collecting between the car and magnet.

  • StickyLife.com custom magnets for cars are not intended for applications where petrochemical contact may occur. For example: next to your car’s gas tank.
  • Substrate selection, exposure angle, environmental conditions, and maintenance will affect actual performance. Continuous exposure in regions that experience maximum sunny days will decrease performance and may cause the magnet to stick to the car in a semi-permanent fashion.
  • Remove the magnet after a snowfall or rain, wipe dry and reapply. Also, remove magnets before pressure washing, especially in winter, as most car washes use de-icing chemicals that could damage the magnet face.
  • If you ever experience an issue with your car magnet, please contact us and let us know about it. Following these care and maintenance tips will help provide you with optimal results.

"Creating this was a breeze. It arrived about 7 days later. It looks just like I imagined.

One complaint, I wish there were more paw styles to choose from. I wanted one that looked like it had hairy edges. If StickyLife could add a few that would be awesome and surely increase sales."
