    I am looking to get new truck magnets and am looking for a new provider. Right now I have vistaprint magnets and they look good but the biggest they make them is 12"x18". I want something bigger - maybe 18"x24".

    Does anyone know a place that makes these custom? Also I have a jpg file for my logo so I need to figure out how to make the resolution expand to that size which right now it can't. Could a print shop do this?

    I am open to lettering but I figure for resale and changing the logo info over time a magnet is easier. Thoughts?

    Not sure if you have a Fastsigns or similar shop by you. They can do almost any size you want.

    Lettering can be (fairly) easily removed from the vehicle and there shouldn't be too many changes to the things you put on your truck. They last 3-5 or more years and your number, website, core services, etc shouldn't change too much in that time.

    I will look into that. What can I expect to pay for two doors lettered at 18x24"?

    I use "build a sign". they run a lot of specials and my magnets and street signs have held up well to weather. They have a pretty good online design widget and you can submit photos or artwork.

    I got 2 huge door magnets with some artwork resolution work for $130. I'm happy with that.

    Im pretty sure Planitgraphics does magnet signs, double check but I'm almost positive. I'm not sure on Bob's prices but based on what he sent us with the EDDM postcards, I'm sure the magnets will be great as well.
