Cleaning Magnetic Signs

Failure to follow the care tips and usage instructions that follow may cause damage to the Magnetic Sign and/or the surface to which it has been applied, and/or possible failure of the magnet to maintain its hold. eSigns.com takes no responsibility of, and will not be held liable for, any damage caused by abuse, misuse, or failure to follow the enclosed care tips and usage instructions.

Removing Magnetic Signs
When removing your Magnetic Sign, be careful not to bend or crease the corners. Remove your car magnets periodically to help ensure that they may still be securely fastened to the vehicle, and to perform and necessary cleaning. The surface of your custom Magnetic Sign may be cleaned with a mild soap and water solution. Cleaning products like Windex® can help with removing small smudges or stains.
To help prevent the accumulation of moisture and dirt between the Magnetic Sign and the metal surface, remove the Magnetic Sign at regular intervals. Clean both the Magnetic Sign and metal surface with mild detergent; wipe with a soft cloth or allow both to air-dry.
Please Note: WEEKLY cleaning is recommended for Magnetic Signs attached to vehicles. DAILY cleaning is recommended with new vehicles, to protect their fresh clear coat, base coat and/or vinyl surfaces.
Weekly removal and cleaning of the vehicle and Magnetic Signs helps avoid magnetic polarization of the vehicle’s surface under the Magnetic Sign. It is recommended that Magnetic Signs be removed, inspected, and cleaned after every rain or snowfall they are exposed to.
Make sure to completely dry your Magnetic Sign and the vehicle surface after cleaning.
Storing Magnetic Signs
Keep your Magnetic Signs in a clean, dry place when not in use. Store your Magnetic Signs by stacking them on a flat surface. Do not stack vehicle signs with the magnetic sides touching each other. Do not store heavy objects on top of or against your magnet signs.
Storing a magnetic sign rolled is not recommended, but if you must store them rolled, stand it on one end, with the printed side facing out. NEVER fold a Magnetic Sign. The back and sides of a filing cabinet can be used as a way to store Magnetic Signs, as can a refrigerator.
Proper use and care of Magnetic Signs will help extend the life of your Magnetic Sign and help to protect the metallic surface to which it is applied.
