Dan or Joy, Have you thought about magnets that are exactly like the stickers? I'd love to promote FF as I'm about to place an order today, but I'd rather not put a sticker on my trailer. When I have it lettered I'd like to have something about FF permanently added.

That is a good idea! We've looked at smaller ones but not the larger ones. I'll have to check on price.

I like it though!

Let us know what you figure out because my stickers on my enclosed trailer are already bleached from the sun. Magnets would be cool.

I just sent out an email to check prices. I'll see what I can come up with.

If you wax the trailer, will the FF magnet still stick to the trailer ?:confused:

So Dan, Does this mean that I get the first "sample" magnet?

Dano50
05-27-2009, 12:25 PM
Sure. I can do that. We've got to get them made first. It looks like we may go with a 5.75" logo sticker.

besides the magnet, what else would you all like to see?
I wonder if people would actually stick the fluid film logo on their jackets... :rolleyes:

Those are all great ideas but if I overcharge on my credit card they'll take it away, dang it!

We should be coming out with some new shirts soon. We've got new hats coming, but they are specialized. They will be almost like collector's items. I'll get a pic up soon. :)

Oh boy, what have I got myself into???

The magnets didn't work out. In order to get the size we would want the cost became prohibitive. When it comes to marketing materials, we really look for items that are going to constantly stand out and be seen to promote product recognition. Stuff that sits on a shelf doesn't do a whole lot to bring awareness.

We'll have something going on soon to win a new hat, and when the new shirts come out we'll do the same.

I know. I was hot on those myself. The only way we'd pick those up is if we started selling them off the website.

Next time you guys roll by a sign shop stop in and ask for a price for their scrap rolled magnetic sheet material. Pick up a couple pieces, stick your FF stickers on it and trim the excess. Whalah, there's your magnetic FF sign. It's not very expensive, just a few dollars for a couple square feet and sometimes a shop will have scrap laying around that they'll give away vs throw away.

The problem with just putting the stickers on the magnets is that the stickers fade. That's what we were trying to avoid.

We've been talking for a long time about doing a merchandising page. I'm not really sure what the hold up is. If we did, we could sell all kinds of stuff.

best guess from someone who knows nothin(:laugh:) is the higherups feel no one would buy the stuff or, the amount you would sell wouldn't warrant the amount spent to get the stuff to begin with
