Standard Thicknesses
Range from 0.012” to 0.060”, with a tolerance of (+/- 0.003”). All magnet thickness measurements are taken before laminates are applied. The thicker the flexible magnet, the stronger it is.

Custom cutting capabilities
Our precision equipment will cut most rolls of flexible sheeting material to the size that your application requires.


Available roll lengths and widths
Flexible magnetic sheeting is typically provided in roll form, but can also be cut to size.

1. Full roll Use full rolls of 12” to 40” wide by 10, 25 or 50 ft. for short
print runs of various size final lengths.

2. Cut sheet Have your magnet pre-cut to fit your standard print press
sheet size, or cut to a specific sign blank size or whatever size your final
application requires. Standard pre-cut sign blanks are also available in
12” x 24” and 18” x 24” sizes.

3. Slit rolls Keep the versatility of a full 25, 50 or 100 foot roll but have
it slit to a smaller width. Slitting wheels slit a full roll into several rolls of
various widths as narrow as 2”, with a precision of +/- 0.060”.

4. Die cut Custom and standard shapes available. Please call for information.
