Car Magnets - Were they ever done?

Postby staceynw » Tue Mar 18, 2008 01:43 pm

I searched for some old threads on car ribbon magnets but didn't find a whole lot. Has this been turned down or is it still a possibility to get car ribbon magnets. . . . or window cling ribbons?

Personally, I'd like the window cling ribbons cuz they don't get lost in the car wash and people can't get inside to steal them.

I would think this would be a good one as family members would want to have them as well. It is a great thing as it raises money and awareness.

it's great to see members wanting to spread awareness in a varitety of ways...thanks for the inquiry. Unfortunately, it's usually required that an organization pay for these sorts of items up front with a large minimum order requirement.

Without knowing that the "masses" would purchase - and considering we have a relatively small membership at this time - it is not the most effective place to put PF funds.

That said, I will research a little, possibly these magnets could compliment another fundsg project ... or maybe through cafepress they could become available in future.

In the meantime, if you want to use your car to advertise our cause, remember that PF does have license plate frames available for purchase through cafepress.com. ALSO, we have a stock of Preeclampsia Fnd royal blue awareness bracelets that can be bought (just a few dollars) and worn.

edit: I see Cindy replied right before me with the link - thanks, Cindy!

If you go to MagnetAmerica.com, they have a way to customize ribbons, too. Is there a way we could customize a ribbon-magnet for pre-eclampsia, and maybe sell it as a fundraiser?
