    I was thinking of buying some business card magnets with our company info, logo, phone number, etc. These are the type of magnets I would hope people keep on the 'fridge door.

    I was wondering if you all have used this type of advertisement? And, whether could recommend a company to buy the magnets from?

    Yes, I got my magnets from Office Max. I'm not sure how much they were. You peel off the back and just place your business card on them. My customers really like them. Hope this helps.

    I got mine, the true business card magnet. They are 53 cents apiece due to several colors but look much better than the type you stick your card on. Much more professional. Looking at about $265 for 500, but worth it. Just be picky who gets them. I only give them to true customers or those aerating and seeding jobs so that they know to call me next time. I never use them as business cards.

    dhicks, The magnets from Officemax are the way to go. They are about 21 bucks for 100. I had to trim just a hair off the eges when I put the cards on, but it was easy just running the scissors down the edges.
