Default Brewery Logo Magnet

Has anyone ever had a large magnet of their brewery logo made? I haven't finalized my logo yet, but I thought it would be great to have a magnet made to put on the kegerator when it's done.

I did a quick check of a few places on the internet but it looked kinda pricey. Thought I'd see if anyone had gone down this road and found a reasonable source.

I would like to do that as well now that I have an actual logo.

Or you can buy magnetic sheets and print your own.

http://www.custom-magnets.com/ink-jet-magnet-sheets.htm

They also have them cut in business card size. That gets me thinking...what about printing up business card magnets with the logo and the beer name to go above the taps on the kegerator?

The minimum order qty is 10 sheets, but they do have a sample pack for $9.95.

But, it looks like this might just be paper with a magnet on the back, so I'm not sure how durable they would be.

I expect my logo to be done this week and I'd like to get a 2' x 2' image of the logo on the front of my keezer.

I looked into the magnet idea and the costs seemed pretty high as well as some were limiting on the number of colors, etc.

So I was driving and saw one of those Vinyl covered cars with the advertsing and thought...hmmm...how do they do that. It isn't a paint job. I discovered it was a flexible vinyl that is attached with some sort of grommet, but THEN i discovered they make this stuff SELF sticking and on a small scale its cheap.

Check this out...

2'x2' Self Adhesive Vinyl for less that $25.
Haven't tried this yet, but for the low cost I am seriously considering it once I get my logo back this week.

Custom Self Adhesive Vinyl [No I don't work for them or have any affiliation]

Sweet find, MN. I might try that out.

I was going to suggest similar, jfrizzell, the local Time Warner contractors all have cheap vinyl magnets that they slap on the side of their van. They can't be too costly, especially without the magnet part. We have a chain place called FastSigns here, they would probably do it in-house... no idea on cost. My past job used FastSigns for dimensional lettering on interior walls, that's where I know 'em from.

I'm still working on the logo...but I'm probably not going to spend a lot on a sign for the fridge when I get it done. I like the idea of the vinyl "sign". It looks like you could get a 1 foot x 2 foot sign for like $12. That's not bad at all, assuming it would stick to a fridge with a textured surface.

Then again, maybe I'll print a nice 8.5x11" sign and make a stylish duct tape frame to hold it to the fridge.

This stuff is designed to stick on outdoor billboards. I'd have to think it would stick to a freezer. Worst case you could use a 3M Spray Adhesive. That $hit will make anything stick.

Here's some 411 that might help. In your location find a large format printer that prints the magnetic signs you see on the side of some vehicles. This same place will also print adhesive vinyl. The adhesive vinyl will be WAY cheaper than the magnetic sign! Provide them with the art work. Either vector art (preferable) or rasterized graphics at 200 dpi. You'll get charged by the sq. ft. Have no idea what it'll cost ya (for adhesive vinyl it should be 4-9 bucks per sq. foot you do the math on the size your asking them to print). That's what you're looking for. The most important thing here is to provide them with a file that's ready to print and ask them to do it when they get too it. It takes approx. 6 ft of vinyl to web up a lg. format printer, and it WILL cost a butt load if they have to web the printer just to run a half dozen stickers/magnets for ya. By making friends and asking, "Hey can you run this file the next time you run some adhesive vinyl. It's just for my personal use, can you help a brother out... ohh and here's a few biers" You'll probably score! Well atleast you would where I work.

Good luck,
Phillip

Ps As for me I'm actually going to wrap my spare fridge converted into kegerator with vehicle graphics. I work for a large format printer, like the place I just described. www.imageonestudios.com Hope some of this helps. Of course if you can find an online service I'm sure that'll be great too, but I don't know of one.
