How to Create Word Magnets:
At magnets.com, our team of talented designers will create a custom design for you. We’ll be happy to assist you with selecting the words on your magnets. We do however, recommend applying your expertise to develop the words that best reflect your brand or organization. If you don’t have time to brainstorm the perfect set of words for your brand, there’s an easy alternative! Seek out those golden words using a free word cloud generator like Wordle or ABC YA. Word cloud generators will create a “cloud” of words based on the content of your website! You can also type or paste in relevant literature like your website’s “About” page or an event flyer. Here is a word cloud made up of this blog post!
Once you’ve chosen the most significant words associated with your brand or organization, you’ll want to remember to sprinkle in some conjunctions (I’m trying hard to not get the song stuck in my head)!
Word Magnets for Brands
Marketers know the importance of creating opportunities for their audience to interact with a brand. On social media, interactive marketing ranges from Q&A’s in the comments sections, to photo-contests, to full-fledged games that in one way or another incorporate some aspect of the given brand. The goal is to create an experience that enhances the users perception of a brand. Marketers also know the importance of physical marketing – hence the 17.7 billion dollar industry of promotional products. Like interactive marketing, physical marketing places emphasis on experience.
Word Magnets are excellent promotional products because they offer up the best aspects of both interactive and physical marketing!

Framed Word Magnets for Schools
Framed Word Magnets are a popular, useful and fun promotional product. Colleges and universities often mail these magnets out to prospective students as a method to attract interest to the school. The university name and/or logo are displayed on a frame which surrounds carefully selected words and images that represent the school. The frame can be used to display photos or to house word magnets that aren’t in use. Meanwhile, your school’s branding sticks around for years to come!
