Why are more and more people using magnetic signs?


You probably have seen magnetic signs before. These usually appear on establishments that have metal doors or metal railings, and panels. It may seem like some sort of weird development, but there is a method to the madness. There's a reason why more and more businesses and individuals are using magnetic signs.

If you run a business and your business's frontage is made out of steel, you might want to consider magnetic signs, seriously. Here are just some of the reasons why businesses and individuals are migrating to magnetic signs.

The reality of changing information

Depending on the type of business you're in, you might be dealing with services or businesses that have fluctuating or constantly changing prices. For example, if your line of business deals with products that are directly tied with commodities, your prices may rise and fall in line with the daily fluctuation of the global commodities market. Even services are not spared from situations where prices may change drastically. For example, if you are dealing with last minute labor placements or job listings, your rate to your clients may rise and fall quite a bit depending on how many specialists are available to take on jobs. Make no mistake about it, changing information can wreak havoc with your business operations and communications with your customers if you don't have the right signs. Taking out 'permanent' signs and changing them to reflect the latest prices is not only a massive headache but can cost you a lot of money in terms of lost productivity or opportunity costs.

Permanent signs can be a hassle to remove

The first reason why people prefer magnetic signs nowadays is that permanent signs can be a hassle to remove. Think about it, if you put a permanent sign on your frontage, you have to remember that you may need to remove it at some point in time in the future. This can be hassle. You need to put paint thinner on the sign. You might have to scrape it off. Even if you were to hire somebody to do all this for you, you could’ve saved money by not hiring that person in the first place. How can you save money? Use magnetic signs instead of permanent signs.

Also, permanent signs can cost quite a bit of money to put on because it takes labor to put it on. Magnetic signs, on the other hand, don't need specialized labor at all. You don’t need any kind of skills. If your sign is magnetic, you just slap the sign on and it's good to go. If you don’t need it anymore, you just pop it off. It's quick and simple. No fuss. No drama.

Adhesive signs can leave a mess

A lot of people try to solve the permanent sign issue by dispensing with paint altogether. Instead of painting on sign or carving a sign into their frontage, they use adhesive signs. This is a fancy term for stickers. They're basically just putting stickers on their frontage.

You probably already know what issues you're facing if you're going to be using adhesive signs. Chances are, in the past, you’ve put stickers on your car's bumper. Were they easy to remove? Was it fun to remove them? There's your answer.

The bottom line is that adhesive signs may be more convenient than permanent signs. They may be cheaper and they may even look better, but the problem is when it's time to change the sign or remove the sign they can leave mess. You have to scrape off the adhesive. Sometimes, you have to put a solvent to take out the glue. It can be a mess. Who needs the hassle? It's much better to just take a magnetic sign and slap one on.

Magnetic signs offer a wide range of designs

If you run a business, often times you want to attract eyeballs. When you use magnetic signs, you increase the likelihood that you will attract the right kind of attention because they come in different designs. You benefit from the design versatility. You can play around with these different designs to see which particular magnetic sign gets the best results. This can go a long way in getting more warm bodies to the physical doors of your business. This can also go a long way in you sending out the right signals to the community, so that they develop more confidence in your brand.

Many businesses deal with fast changing information

Some businesses deal with fast changing information like prices and product sizes. Other information that changes involve model numbers, brands, and product names. Whatever piece of information you're dealing with, you need signs that would be versatile and easy enough to deal with. They should accommodate this fast changing information. This is very hard to do if you're using permanent signs. You can't just go to your frontage and repaint your old sign. This is also a hassle if you're using adhesive signs because you're constantly peeling and cleaning up sticker after sticker.

Magnetic signs make all those hassles go away. You just move certain parts of a magnetic sign to convey the right up-to-date information.

Modern printing technology has vastly improved stick-on sign quality

The great thing about magnetic signs is that they can operate in a compound way. One part can be magnetic and the other part can be written on with erasable ink. This is the best hybrid solution to fast changing information requiring signs. You can enjoy a wide variety of sign designs and attract eyeballs this way.

The best part is that you can also accommodate the different fast changing information. You do this in a very efficient way because the design looks good and the information changes as your need changes. You can't ask for a better combination on of benefits. Make no mistake about it, magnetic signs bring a lot of benefits to the table. They save you a lot of headaches. They can help you showcase new branding elements. They can help you grab the eyeballs of your target audience members better.
