View Full Version : magnetic car signs

20-07-2009, 10:30 AM
Hi there, at my pre reg meeting my CCO mentioned one of her minders has a magnetic sign to go on the door of her car.

Has anyone used these? Does anyone know where to get them? I guess it would always be good for advertising

I got one free from Vistaprint, i had no idea it would be so big (it's a small one!) I've yet to be brave enough to put it on my car!:laughing:

Don't forget if you go with Vista Print to use the link from the Forum, it helps give a few pennies in commission to Forum Friends

There is a link in the 'Links to useful sites section" or one at the very bottom of the Forum in the bottom box :thumbsup:

I have two large ones for my doors and a small one for my boot! I have had comments from people who i dont even know, about how fab they look. I emailed a parent from childcare.co.uk who was infact a childminder doing some research and she complemented my magnets and said she often sees "The Playhouse bus" driving round! She even said that it looked very professional and invited me for a coffee and a chat!! Been too busy to go!

So you see, it gets your name out there! Although you should have seen the other childminders faces when i turned up with them!!:laughing:

I can imagine! I only had to wear my logo polo shirts and I had the evils from c/m's where I used to live!

Do the magnets stay on the car okay and not damage the paintwork at all? Are they easy to remove?
