8 Ideas for PsPrint’s New Magnets

June 24, 2010

Get ready to be attracted to PsPrint’s latest printed product: magnets. Since they can stick to any metal surface, magnets have many uses in business and personal use. Here are eight ideas to get you started: Business information. Magnets are perfect for keeping your company visible. Hand out a magnet, and it will likely end up on a refrigerator, where your customers will see it every day. It’s easy, cheap marketing on your part and a freebie for your clients! Calendar. Another way to promote your business is to design a postcard-size magnet with a 12-month calendar, your company logo and contact information. It’s a highly visible and useful marketing tool – one that will keep you in your customers’ sight all year round. Save the date. How often have you received an e-mail or a card ordering you to “save the date” for a wedding, only to still forget all about it? With save-the-date magnets, however, there is no excuse. Once affixed to the cubicle wall or fridge, a save-the-date magnet will ensure you the date is saved in your memory. Event. Like a save-the-date notice, a magnet in place of – or in addition to – a traditional invitation card is a unique way to welcome people to a tradeshow event, birthday party, anniversary, business sale and more. New stuff. Are you unveiling a new product line or debuting a new venue? Start the whispering now by printing magnets with a photo, name and launch date. Don’t forget a website so customers can check in once the date arrives. Vacation photos. One popular travel souvenir is the magnet, and let’s admit it – they’re often hokey. Next time you travel to a picturesque location, skip the cheap trinkets and opt to make durable magnets out of your vacation photos for yourself, relatives and friends. Baby announcement. People love babies, and they love baby photos. So why not make it easy on family and friends, since they want to display your new baby pictures anyway? PsPrint magnets are available in a 3.5-by-5.5-inch size – perfect for a photo, name and statistics. That’s one birth announcement that will proudly reside on the refrigerator for a long time. Guerilla marketing. As visible as ink, paint and stickers but without the damage and criminal charges, magnets are perfect for street-team marketing. I’ve seen magnets affixed to bathroom stalls, newspaper-vending machines and elsewhere about town advertising new CDs, special events at nightclubs and more. Choose the protective UV coating to prevent fading and cracking from the weather. Are you ready to get started on your own magnets? It’s easy with free templates for each of PsPrint’s three available magnet sizes. And if you require more help, the graphic services department is available to create a product for you.
