Another Fundraising Idea

We are always on the lookout for that perfect fund raiser. Like I said about the concessions, they can be good, but we don't always get the chance. We have tried candy bars, but most of them are still sitting in my basement. Spirit wear seems to be pretty popular when we get a chance to sell that, at the football games and such. We have t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, sweat pants, and several other items all in the school colors and with the school name and mascot on them.

Something that might go nicely with that would be car magnets. I'm sure I've seen some of these around. It's looks like a great way to show school spirit wherever you go, and I would think that once people start putting these on their cars, other people will be asking where they got them, and they would practically sell themselves. They say that every parent will want one for their car, and most families these days have at least two cars.

ARC Marketing makes it easy to design a car magnet by specifying shape, text, colors to use, mascot, etc. and come up with the perfect design. The design is free, and the sample magnet is free, too. Their prices are easily available on the website, and they let you know that there is a one-time setup fee and don't try to hide it. Future orders of the same magnets will not be charged that setup fee.

They say that these custom magnets are very profitable and would be great fundraising items for schools, PTAs, sports teams, Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, and many other organizations.
