- Things You Should Know

Magnets are a perfect way to get your company name and information in front of your customer for a season, a year or a lifetime. Great for real estate offices, political campaigns, home services, sporting and school events and even calendars.
When you want excellent print quality, our premium offset printing is the answer. Your full color magnets are printed using soy inks with stochastic screen technology resulting in magnificent reproduction of photographs and detailed artwork. Even though these full color magnets are not intended for outdoor use, they are printed on 17pt magnet stock and then gloss UV coated making them very durable.
Where Can I Use My Magnets?
These are lightweight magnets that are suitable for fridges or similar indoor use. Not weatherproof, or suitable for cars as not a super strong magnet. When in doubt, request a sample and you can check it out for yourself.
Should You Use Rich Black?
For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text), we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid misregistration issues.
Can Greys Can Shift?
CMYK Process colors in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in color throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey, we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.
Is there color variation on solid blue?
Due to the nature of club-run printing you may experience color variation in solid fills of blue. For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
Can UV Coating Change Colors?
Color on cards finished with a UV gloss coating will appear slightly darker and richer than cards finished with an aqueous coating.
