    Just came across a pack of 200 magnets for business cards for like 20 bucks.
    wonder how well this would work for putting on cars...or just handing out in general, think people more prone to keep it when its a magnet
    what you guys think? I have yet to test this, will soon.

    If I see a business card on my paint I would be pretty pissed and trust me I'd call to give you my 2 cents about what you just did. Not a good idea that calls for trouble right there and too much liability.

    Agree with Dakarois 100%. If you're going to use these things, hand them to people. Don't stick them on their cars. I believe there are laws against this sort of thing anyway.

    Don't mess with a guy and his car i.e. don't stick stuff on it.

    I've seen these put to good use by putting them on YOUR car beneath a "take one" sticker. You'll need an eye-catching design for your cards, obviously.

    They're great value because stickers take a while to get off so it becomes a long term commitment, whereas magnets are easy and they'll forget it's there after a few days.

    But make it seem like you're offering value. Get an awesome design and ask FRIENDS to stick theirs on, not randoms or your magnet is as good as thrown away.

    This is a great idea. But you need to have permission to stick stuff to others vehicles!

    People would be more likely to keep it depending on what it is.

    I've got a pizza shop and an electrician's business card magnets on my fridge. Makes it easy for me to find the cards.

    Instead of putting it deep within a pile, people will put it on their fridge where nothing can be put over it (for the most part).
