Savvy business owners know that it’s important to take advantage of any opportunity to market and brand your business. This is especially true of new businesses that do not have the name recognition or high investment dollars of their larger competitors.
For these businesses, it’s important to take advantage of any opportunity to get your name out there. That’s why marketing using your car is so valuable. Cars represent unused marketing real estate – huge canvases that generally go undecorated, but could be a way to brand any type of business.
Brand Your Vehicle with Car Magnets
Brooklyn Signs creates a variety of custom magnetic signs that go perfectly on most car vehicles. Magnetic signs for cares can be easily crafted to brightly display your logo, business information, contact information, and more, in a way that allows you to turn your car into a rolling, mobile advertisement, all without any more money out of pocket. Benefits of using these types of car magnet signs include:
- Professional for Commuting
- Removable for Personal Cars
- Easily Moved to Other Cars
- Affordable and Easy to Replace
When you travel to meet with a client, rolling up in a branded vehicle builds trust. They know that the person parking in front of them works for that business, and that they are confident enough with what they do to be held accountable for their work. It is especially useful for home services and deliveries, as it ensures that you look like a business when you arrive at their door, not just a car.
Many people use their personal car for work. When you’re working (or as you commute during the day), you’re surrounded by potential clients, and you want to make sure you brand your business as well as you can. But when you’re out enjoying your nightlife, you likely do not want your car associated with the business. You can remove it as needed, and drive your car with more privacy.
Those that contract out work or use multiple vehicles can also move the magnetic sign as often as necessary. Magnetic signs are commonly used with subcontractors that work with multiple companies, as a way of making them look much more like official employees.
There are other ways to advertise on your car, such as with a vehicle wrap. Vehicle wraps are an outstanding way to decorate a car with your brand and information, but they tend to be more costly and easier to damage than car magnets, which makes them not ideal for every business.
Other methods of advertising your business, like car wraps, are all still highly effective. But there is something to be said about the value of the car magnet, and the many benefits that come from using this type of marketing strategy.

Metal signs are easily some of the most popular sign materials available today. They are durable, great for printing color, and make for high quality, long-lasting displays.
But depending on what you’re using the sign for, you may need to be careful about which metal you choose. Not every type of metal is suited for outdoor signs.
Some are easily prone to damage or may lead to wear and tear that affects the look of your sign over time.
What Makes a Metal Safe Weather Sign?
The most important feature of a weather safe metal sign is that it is resistant to rain damage. It rains and snows a great deal on the East Coast, and if a sign can’t withstand that witness it shouldn’t be outdoors. You should also try to locate a sign that is resistant to warping, and – if possible – a sign that will not overheat during the warmer New York summers.
Types of Weatherproof Metal Signs
With that in mind, the best options are the following:
- Aluminum Signs
- Stainless Steel Signs
- Brass Signs
Aluminum signs are ideal. These signs are lightweight and cost efficient. All signs have the potential to erode over time, but aluminum signs are highly resistant to damage from most major weather conditions, won’t rust, and can generally be easily cleaned.
Stainless steel signs are also an excellent choice. Known for their durability, stainless steel may be a bit more expensive than other types of signs, but has the ability to resist a great deal of damage from most weather conditions and is very long lasting. It is also resistant to blunt damage, more so than aluminum.
Finally, although a little less versatile than stainless steel and aluminum, brass is often a solid choice for many types of outdoor signs. They are especially useful for smaller designs, as well as door/room information and another labeling.
Other Sign Options
There are other types of metal signs you can consider, including cast iron and bronze (the latter of which can become more weather resistant when coated). There are also non-metal signs that are weather resistant, like several types of wood signs and vinyl banners.
