Application Tips for Magnetic Signs
Magnetic Sheeting holds best to flat surfaces and surfaces with slight
curves. When the magnetic signs are placed in the wrong position, remove
the sign and realign. Do not pull the magnetic sign to realign when it is
against the surface, as the material may stretch due to resistance cause
by the high magnetic strength. Make sure the entire magnet is against the
metal surface (no air pockets). Do not apply to newly repainted surfaces.
Do not apply the signs over sharp creases or moldings.
Cleaning Magnetic Signs
Some moisture and dirt could collect behind magnetic signs. Remove and
clean both the signs and the surface with mild detergent and allow both to
dry. Repeat cleaning process weekly when used in an outdoor environment.
For extra assurance, remove and clean signs daily during harsh weather
conditions. Wax the metal surface of
the car door.
Storing Your Signs when not in Use
The magnetic sheet is more pliable and easier to work with when it is near
room temperature when applied. The best way to store magnetic signs is
flat. Avoid laying signs on protruding objects. Roll the signs loosely.
Save the box the signs were shipped in for storage.
