Alright, I have been using Vistaprint (http://vistaprint.com) for years, unfortunately the magnets crumble after a few months and crack easily. I'm tired of having to continuously order from them.

Also, are there any companies who are capable of cutting my magnets into certain shapes, so that they aren't all just plain rectangles?

example;

I dont use istaprint for anything. I have a local shop that makes my cards, advertising, and signs. They are cheaper than vistaprint and I get everything in two days. They also help me in layout and design. I brought my idea fo signs to them and two day later picked 'em up, they changed a few things, made colors slightly different (bolder) and told me to leave a couple of things out so the signs were 'readable'. they look great. Find someone local to help you, any good advertising item company.

Buildasign.com (http://www.buildasign.com/MagneticSigns) they make the best magnets. They are thicker by 3x vista print. And the price is reasonable around $30-$40 each. I have two sets from them, the first set I used for 2 tears, did not crack or fade at all, I got a new set beginning of last year just because I wanted to change the look.

Also found this on this site from last year

I'm scared of it. LOL.

How easy is it to take it off? Does it ruin the paint job? :(

from my experance it does less damage then the magnets do. We had magnets on trucks in the begining and after a while they would be scratched up and have rust spots where the magnets were. the ones with vinyle lettering if parked outside show faded where the lettering was not on but other then that are fine.
