    Yeah, print on film and apply it to the mag! Save the wear and tear the heavy mag does to your machine.

    I've never heard one person say that you should do it. The only people I've heard that have done it are the ones that are asking why it isn't working right. It's a temp sign, print to a calendared material, and stick it on there.

    My car magnet supplier prints direct on to unmagnetized material and then magnetizes it after it is printed and finished....

    The trick it's Avoid printing on Magnetic...

    Printing magnetic media on the VJs is NOT a recommended application.

    The VJ’s all have a ferrous preheater surface and the magnet will stick to this and cause excessive drag on
    the media and perhaps on the drive itself.

    One single head strike and your head could be toasted...lol

    Another alternative is to purchase your mag w/o vinyl.

    Print your vinyl as usual and use a laminator to apply it to the mag roll stock.

    The best way to print and cut mag is on a flatbed.
