Why Business Card Magnets Have Been Our Top Seller for 25+ Years

When it comes to selling wholesale printed products, a lot has changed over the years but one thing has remained the same. Business card magnets are still king!

In 2019, Continental Plastic Card merged with Biz-Mag to form Continental BizMag. For over 25 years, Biz-Mag was known in the industry as “the magnet printing company” but the merger allowed both companies to provide a wider range of wholesale printed products to their resellers.

Continental BizMag now offers  over 30 printed products including a wide range of plastic cards, decals, yard signs, magnets, and car magnets.

No matter how many products are added to the lineup, business card magnets remain the top seller by leaps and bounds both in quantity and sales volume. This is particularly interesting since they are one of the cheapest products offered.

Let’s first take a look at the product.  Business card magnets measure 3.5” x 2” in size like a standard business card but feature rounded corners. They are printed in full color and adhered to a thin, 23 mil magnetic material and finished with a high gloss UV coating.

Why are business card magnets consistently our top selling product?

1. Incredibly low price

Continental BizMag is proud to be a low price leader when it comes to wholesale printing. It will be hard to find a company offering business card magnets as cheap as ours! The lower our price, the more room for profit in your pocket!

2. Super fast turnaround

In addition to low prices, our magnetic business cards are printed very fast. Orders of 500 - 5,000 quantity that are submitted before 11am EST are shipped out within 2 business days. That’s fast!

3. Makes a great marketing tool for any company

As a trade printer, we print products for a wide range of industries ranging from air conditioning repair companies to walk-in medical centers and everything in between.

Business card magnets are a very inexpensive marketing tool / promotional item that can be impactful for just about every industry. Since most companies already have business cards designed, in many cases it’s just a matter of taking that artwork, and using it to order the magnetic variety.

Unlike paper business cards, their magnetic counterpart can only be 1-sided but having the ability to stay top of mind by sticking it to a refrigerator, file cabinet, or any other indoor magnetic surface is a great advantage!

4. More than just magnetic business cards

There are lots of other ways these marketing marvels can be useful aside from being a magnetic version of a paper business card. They can be used as a giveaway at a cash register or trade show, included as a freebie inside eCommerce orders to serve as a reorder reminder, or incorporated as part of a direct mail campaign. Their small size and light weight allows them to be included inside a standard #10 envelope without requiring additional postage.

Some of the most popular uses include:

Mini Billboards - These are a popular technique where the design is similar to a mini magazine advertisement or postcard. Unlike a business card that can often promote a single employee, these mini billboards display a company’s logo, basic contact info, and tagline to stay top of mind with current or potential customers.

Useful Information - Display useful phone numbers, email addresses, websites, save the dates, or other important information easily with these mini magnets. The more useful the information, the better the chance that they will be displayed and used regularly.

Social Media & Marketing Campaigns - Be creative and think outside the box! Use them for special campaigns, as a branding tool, or to promote your social media accounts and get noticed!

QR Codes - QR codes (short for Quick Response Codes) have been making a comeback now that most smartphones have QR code readers built in. If you aren't familiar with them, here are 5 amazing QR code ideas from expert marketer Neil Patel. During this new era of contactless communication, these square boxes can be used to link to any website. For example, a restaurant can include a QR code that links directly to their digital menu for online ordering. The possibilities are endless.
