How Just Direct Promotions makes your custom printed fridge magnet
Order your personalized magnets online our call one of our knowledgeable account representatives and they will guide you through the order process for your custom magnets.
The production of your custom printed magnet order begins with you sending us your custom magnet artwork via email. If you do not have artwork for your fridge magnet we will be happy to have our design team create artwork for your custom magnet.
The custom fridge magnet artwork is then sent to our pre-press division for quality control inspection. They will ensure everything is created properly for our printing process.
Once the custom magnet artwork has the stamp of approval by the pre-press department, a final digital proof will be emailed for your final approval. This will ensure your custom magnet has been created to suit your requirements.
The pre-press department will “step and repeat” your custom magnet artwork into our printing layout template allowing us to print multiple copies of the custom magnet on a single page.
The “step and repeated” printing layout sheet is then sent to our printing equipment.
Small orders are printed on our digital printer, large custom magnet orders are produced on our 4 colour process offset printing presses.
The printed fridge magnet sheets are then UV coated to protect the printed surface of the custom magnet and enhance its appearance.
Your custom printed fridge magnet sheet is now ready to be applied to the magnetic sheeting. We do this on a unique custom engineered and built machine designed specifically by Just Direct Promotions. We affectionately call the machine “Maggy.” She is the only one in existence. Maggy takes the printed sheet, glues and applies them to the magnetic sheeting.
Your custom fridge magnet is now ready for die cutting. We use steel rules dies to cut most of our magnets. The custom magnet sheet is placed in the die cutting machine and the sheeting is cut with the steel rule die. We have hundreds of steel rule dies to cut various sizes of rectangle, square, round, oval and triangle custom magnets. In addition we have hundreds of unique shape magnets like houses, cars, trucks, planes, phones, heart shapes and many more. We can also produce unique custom shape magnets to suit your every need. Just send us the shape you would like and we will provide you with a quotation to produce your custom shape magnet.
Once all the fridge magnet sheets are die cut they are sent back to Maggy. She will then “strip” away the portion of the magnetic material that is not part of your custom magnet leaving only the desired finished magnet. The magnets are then stacked, counted and boxed ready for shipping.
Just Direct Promotions, your factory direct source for affordable custom magnets produced to the highest standards made here in Canada.
Advertising through the use of promotional magnets was first popularized in Great Britain in the 19th century. A company called Blunt & Sons produced customized magnets that were initially used as advertising on trains. It wasn’t until the 1920s and 1930s that the idea of using refrigerator magnets – especially for promotional use - became widely adopted.
A Brief History of Fridge Magnets
Since then, custom magnet printing has come a long way. Modern printers use state-of-the-art digital and offset printing techniques to create beautiful, bold and bright customized magnets. At Just Direct Promotions, we start with your artwork and can create completely personalized magnets perfect for promoting your business and keeping your company top of mind. Don’t have a design in mind? Our team of designers can create artwork for your custom fridge magnets according to your specifications. Before we go to print, you are always supplied with a proof for approval to ensure your magnets look great.
Your high-quality customized magnets are printed using the latest in digital or offset printing equipment. Once printing is complete, these sheets are applied to magnet material, in your choice of 11 mil magnets, 20 mil magnets, or 30 mil magnets for indoor magnets. Outdoor magnets are always printed on 30 mil vinyl material using fade-resistant outdoor inks.
To ensure that your custom fridge magnets are durable and long-lasting, we apply a protective coating that will enhance their appearance and protect the printed surface. Next, we’ll cut your magnets to your specified size and shape, then get them ready to ship to you! If one of our stock magnet shapes does not meet your requirements, we can custom cut your magnets to any size and shape imaginable – just let us know.
Our custom magnet printing service is great for small businesses, schools and non-profit organizations looking for a unique way to advertise or fundraise. Custom fridge magnets are a highly effective form of advertising. Once they’re on a fridge, they are viewed over and over again by your audience, since the kitchen is one of the highest traffic areas in the home.
