Aug 17, 2007
Magnets are available in various sizes and serve various purposes ranging from home to industrial uses. As magnets can stick to steel and iron, they are also used for promotional purposes.

Aside from their use in radio and television sets, magnets are also used in bulk loading and assembly line productions in the industrial world. Industrial magnets provide solutions to complex mechanized activities and come in all shapes and sizes - round, bars, rods, U-shaped, rings etc. Magnets in the industrial sector range from pulleys and separators to magnetic sweepers, fabrication and welding devices. All these can be custom-built to suit the needs of any particular industry. Bulk purchases are always advantageous and cost beneficial than individual purchases.

Owing to the varied sizes in which they are available, magnets are increasingly being used for advertising purposes. Advertising magnets are usually custom-made. The name and logo of the company along with the services and products offered form the main theme of advertising magnets. Depending on your budget the magnets can be put up on billboards or distributed among prospective clients.

Business cards are another common way to promote your services or products. Since paper business cards often get lost or are forgotten about, business card magnets help keep that company's service or product fresh in people's minds, as they are very visible on the refrigerators or on other magnetic surfaces and never get lost.

Business, promotional or advertising magnets should be made attractive and colorful so that they stand out from the crowd. With their increasing popularity, people are bound to receive a lot of promotional magnets that all get stuck onto the same board. You would definitely want yours to stick out and attract all the attention. All kinds of custom magnets can be ordered online at the various websites that offer such services.

Magnets can be used in a lot of ways at home such as for school projects. Refrigerators and iron cabinets are often adorned with magnetic stickers or small motifs. Refrigerator magnets can be bought from your local departmental store or from home-décor stores. Magnets with Disney or cartoon characters are popular with the kids. The ideal refrigerator magnets could be fruits and vegetables or cocktail magnetic stickers, which can also be made at home. Homemade refrigerator magnets are easy to make, requiring only a piece of cardboard, your favorite photo or design, glue and a small piece of magnet. Custom magnets can be a family photo, your favorite stars or the year's fixture of your favorite baseball team.
