Q. What type of image (picture) can I upload for my sign? A. First It must be an High quality Image type file like: A high Resolution "pdf file", "AI file", "jpg file", "eps file"or a "Photo Shop file". No Microsoft Pub files, No Word files, No Power-point files(these are not image files). Please do not use small clip art files. If you submit a low qualitity image. We are not responsable for Image quality on the finished product. *Other file types may also be excluded.
Q. If I do not have an image file. How can I get the design I have converted to a proper image file? A. There is no Conversion process for a lot of these file types. If you can not do a "Save As .jpg" This has to be done by a designer. One you choose to do the design work or one of our staff designers can help you with the design work for an additional cost.
Q. Why are larger size magnets more expensive per square foot than say a 12" by 24" Car Magnet? A. 12" by 24" is the standard size Car magnet and is promoted at the sale price. Larger magnetic signs like a 18 x 30" are a custom size which takes special handling. Custom and "odd" sizes must be custom cut or cut from larger material.
Q. Why do you charge more if I do not use the Sign Builder? A. Our online pricing is for online orders only. The sign builder lets you do the design and proofing. We print exactly what you approve on the sign builder. Our Designers do not have to do any labor for this process. We can therefore offer you the lowest price possible for magnetic signs using this tool.
Q. What Discounts do you offer on quantity orders? A. We offer a 10% discount on 10 pairs(20 magnetic signs) or more (12x24 standard size only). Please do not ask for a higher discount. Our Prices are already the lowest Pricing in the nation for magnetic signs.
Q. Do you print directly on the magnets? A. No we do not for a number of reasons. Magnetic material is soft and porous. So printing directly on it does not result in a high quality product. Also The vinyl the magnetic manufactures use to coat the magnetic material is also not up to our standards for printing. These printers were not engineered to print on magnetic material and so a lot of misprinting can occur.

Horrible! M&R I-dot printer Idiot Garment printer mrprint.com.
This is a completely different subject. But.. Buyer Beware!!!! No Epson printer
is made to use or can take long term use of Latex inks. The
IDG was based on a smaller epson model and was much easer to maintain. Not so
with the I-Dot and any larger epson printer. I have spent over 1 and 1/2 years
with My I-dot. I have also repaired 1 other regularly. And still another 1 that
I was paid very well to come and fix.
Bottom Line: Fix, Fix again, More Waste INK, Fix again, More parts, Buy more ink to waste. Fix again. This I-dot is a absolute Night mare to maintain. A Horrible excuse for a Garment printer.
If I charged My company My time at Just Half of what a service tech charged. I would be Bankrupt. I have been working on digital printers for over 35 years. The Problem is LATEX INK! period! per year of ownership be pre paired to Replace at least: 3 print-heads. 2 set of Dampers. Complete Cap station assambly. Cables. Plus all the Head scratching. Things that cause you to have to run a power cleaning Wasting more ink. To get it to print right. None of this stuff goes out on a Epson regular printer in 2 years average. Latex INK dry like plastic! It . More to Come!!!
