Do vehicles need special preparation prior to applying ProMag magnetic signs?
A. The painted metal vehicle surface and the black
magnetic side of the sign should be free of dirt and
completely dry. It is also advisable that the area
where the magnetic signs are to be applied is waxed.
What is the best way to apply the magnetic signs?
A. Let one edge of the magnetic sign contact eh
vehicle in the desired position. Then let the power
of the magnetic sign do the rest of the work by letting
the sign lay flat from the edge where you started
to the opposite edge of the magnetic sign. If the
position the sign is in is not exactly where you would
like it to be, simply peel it off and reposition the
starting edge and repeat the above step to apply your
magnetic sign. After you complete this step, make
sure that the entire surface of the magnetic sign
is completely smooth against the surface of the vehicle
with no air pockets underneath. If you are applying
the magnetic sign in colder temperatures or winter
months, make sure the magnetic sign is above 50 degrees
Fahrenheit before applying. The surface temperature
of the vehicle does not matter when applying the magnetic
What maintenance and cleaning procedures should be
A. Remove the magnetic signs weekly and wipe dry
both the magnetic side of the sign as well as the
vehicle surface clean of any debris or moisture. During
more warm and humid months, it is recommended that
the signs be removed and cleaned every 3-4 days. This
keeps moisture from collecting between the magnetic
sign and the surface of the vehicle which in turn
will prevent any damage from occurring to the vehicles
paint. Cleaning the magnetic signs should consist
of simply washing the magnetic side with mild detergent
and warm water and then drying with a clean dry cloth.
Always remove and inspect your magnetic car signs
after a rain or snowfall.
Q. What special precautions should be taken when storing
the magnetic signs?
A. Avoid wrinkling be storing in a 3 inch diameter
roll with the printed side of the magnetic sign facing
outward. Magnetic car signs can also be stored flat
(recommended). UltralMag is permanently magnetic
so you need not worry about protecting the magnetic
sign against any type of magnetic destruction or losing
the magnetic pull. All the rest is common sense such
as not placing heavy objects on or against the magnetic
signs while in storage. Do not leave the magnetic
signs in a hot vehicle where the cabin temperature
exceeds 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Magnetic signs must be removed and cleaned frequently.
Failure to do so could damage the paint of your vehicle.
Dust and moisture could develop between the magnetic
car door sign and the vehicles paint and this must
be removed. To clean your magnetic vehicle sign use
a soft cloth and a gentle cleanser. Do not use harsh
chemicals to clean the magnetic signs. For best results,
please place magnetic vehicle signs on a completely
