Magnetic Sign User Guide
Magnetic vehicle signs are designed for use on flat surfaces. When you attach your magnetic sign to a vehicle make sure that it is attached to a flat surface and that the surface is clean and dry. If the magnetic sign goes over ridges or gaps it may fall off.
After rain wipe the back of the sign to remove moisture to increase the lifespan of the product
Signs are best stored flat but if you do need to roll them up to make sure it is round a tube and that the printed side is facing out. Allow the sign to uncurl before use.
Clean magnetic signs with warm soapy water and dry them making sure there are no bits of grit or dirt on the magnetic surface. Avoid leaving signs on very hot vehicles for long periods. Store at room temperature and out of direct sunlight.

Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.
If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.
Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.
In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.
Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi
If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.
If you are creating set size artwork for hardware then please use the product template. If you have ordered a custom size product please ensure you include 5mm of bleed on your design.
You only need to add print bleed to your artwork if the design extends to the edge of the page. If all of your text and images are in the centre of the design and are surrounded by a plain white background, you won’t need to worry about print bleed as the edges will blend seamlessly into your overall design. If any element of the design goes right up to the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed on all sides is necessary.
Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+
Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.
Other things you can do to check your colours:- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)
For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).
Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.
Do You Need A Proof?
If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.
We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.
Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.
After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.
Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.
Free Artwork Check
Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.
Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.
If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.
Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.

Do my magnets have to be rectangular?
Most vehicle magnets are rectangular with rounded corners. This gives the maximum surface area and maximum adhesion for moving vehicles. However, we can custom cut magnetic signs into any shape you like. Due to the reduction in adhesion, we would advise that contour cut magnetic signs are used for static promotions only or slow-moving vehicles
Does your magnet come with a laminate covering?
No, it is not required; the signs are printed using inks that are UV cured, so they are very resistant to fading and abrasions.
Is there anywhere on my car I should not place a sign?
We recommend not placing the sign on any damaged, rusted, or non-magnetic surfaces. Using the sign on such surfaces can cause the magnetic adhesion not to work as intended. Furthermore, it may cause further damage to your car if you do so.
Ideally place the magnetic sign on smooth flat surfaces, away from any crevices or creases which may lead to interference from wind.
Will your magnetic signs damage my car?
Make sure that the surface you are adhering the magnets to is clean so there is no chance of grit scratching the vehicle's surface. additionally, make sure the back of the sign is clean and free from dirt and dust.
Leaving the sign on your vehicle all the time in the same position may cause your vehicle's paint to become discoloured compared to the rest of the vehicle: where it is protected from the sun.
Do car magnets stick to all types of vehicles?
Only steel. If you're not sure if all of your vehicle is metallic, or if there are plastic elements. Then you can either test the area with a small magnet or ask your vehicle's manufacturer.
Are vehicle magnets weatherproof?
Yes, they are, and the inks will not fade in the sun, as they are printed using UV resistant, waterproof inks.
What about car washes?
You must remove your car magnets before using an automatic car wash or a power jet wash.
Is there a limit on how many times I can remove and put them on my van?
As long as you follow the care instructions, the magnets will last 3-5 years and are designed to be taken on and off the vehicle as many times as you want.
