We have been wanting to post on this special project for over a couple of weeks now but Jan was too lazy (she says it's been too cold) to wash the car so she could take photos for us. She did finally say she would, but Superstorm Sandy changed our weather and Jan was too chicken to get wet. What's a little cold hose water when it's for a good cause - your furries?
When we had a decent afternoon, did she wash and wax the car? Nope! She hosed and wiped it down and spray painted the rusting spots. The weather is now officially cold, so we have given up hope of having a clean, shiny car to show off our group photo. If you are truly our friends, you will pretend not to notice the mismatched painted backdrop.

It took Jan like two forevers to design it. Having 8 of us to fit on it is no excuse for being slow. See how we can scrunch together when necessary?
We thought it would be one of those super thin magnets for the car but it's not. The colors came out really sharp, even the "blue sky with clouds" background.
These are the reasons why we couldn't leave them on the car at this time -
2. Be sure all surface paints, clear coats and waxes are cured or hardened. Paint takes a minimum of 90 days to cure; clear coat a minimum of 60 days.
3.The vehicle should be clean and dry before attaching the sign.
We saved the magnets for the spring when Jan will finally - or so we hope! - be able to give the clunker a good bath and a polish.
The magnets arrive rolled up and we just put them on the fridge door for a couple days to straighten out and then they were ready to use. We were emailed instructions when the order was sent.
If any of you are looking to buy magnets to advertise your blog or your store, you could have some fun designing your own magnets. We did. Well, we enjoyed it cause Jan did the work. She would have enjoyed it but she stresses over everything. There is a lot of creative talent among you pet bloggers and you could then put your human to work tooling around town advertising for you.
Also, if there is a special event coming up - a large pet adoption day or a big fundraiser - car magnets would be a great way to tell the community about it.

Be creative! Have fun!
We received two car magnets in order to write this review, but we were not paid. And our words are our own.
