Some of the Benefits

Did you know a U.S. driver travels 13,476 miles per year on average? That’s 36 miles per day! In other words, there are a lot of potential customers on the road. That’s why vehicle advertising has quickly become a legitimate form of marketing! One that, if you’re a local business trying to attract new customers, can’t be ignored. It’s imperative to take advantage of this medium! Here are a few reasons why you should make your own car magnets:

  • Lots of Impressions - As stated by the Outdoor Advertising Association of America, a vehicle advertisement can reach up to 70,000 impressions per day. That’s a lot of eyeballs! Car advertising reaches more people than radio, billboards and direct mail. Wow! Individuals say that advertisements on vehicles are much more memorable, noticeable and caused them to take action faster than other forms of advertising.

  • Inexpensive - Business owners on a tight budget can’t look at the number of impressions a campaign may get and assume that it’ll succeed. There are many mediums available where you can get millions of impressions, but they cost a pretty penny. Car advertising is clearly less expensive than its counterparts whenever you break down the cost-per-thousand metric for each of the top advertising mediums out there.

  • Build Brand Awareness - People like to go with what they know. Customers are likely to hire you if they’re aware of or familiar with your brand. By driving around, you’re getting tons of eyes on your brand day in and day out, effectively building brand awareness.

  • Build Trust - Building trust with your customers is the most pivotal factor in a customer’s decision to hire you. By displaying your business information on your vehicle, it demonstrates that you’re established and serious. You’re showing your customers and prospects that you take what you are a professional.

Must-Follow Design Tips

Studies suggest that simpler messages with large, attractive graphics at high speeds do an exceptional job of conveying your message. Want to properly convey your business message? We can help! Before you start designing a magnetic sign for your car or truck, there are a few things to consider:

  • Use Full-Color Graphics - The best magnetic car signs use full-color graphics to catch the reader’s eye. Just ensure the graphics do not take away from the info you want to convey.

Fun Facts

One word. Excellence
Fantastic job
Amazing customer service
Excellent service
Good service
Very good service
Definitely coming back for more car magnets once I get a business track. They have really come in handy in advertising my business on the car. I really love them.
Quality product.
I love the material used on these magnets. I have had them on my car for a while now and I wash it clean and they haven't scrapped off. The trick is to wash the car with mild soap and you will have your car magnets sticking on your car until you decide by yourself to get rid of the. Great product 4over4, once we get more company tracks I sure will come back for more.
first class service and quality
We loved the magnets. The one thing i love about them is how easy they are to repurpose, and we don't have to keep tearing vinyl off our cars. They were delivered right when 4over4 said they would and the turnaround was genuinely very impressive. You genuinely get more value for your money on 4over4.
Exactly what I wanted
Bought this a few weeks ago and I'm so glad I did. The magnet held very well to the car and wound up being a perfect size. Plus it was easy to switch around when needed. Highly recommend.
Speedy delivery
