First understand we do not want to offend anyone, but better to explain clearly and in simple language what our policies are and what are the product limitations. So let’s go;
You and your dog retain full ownership of all images sent to yourdogworld. Further all edits and changes made to your images used to create the products you may or may not purchase are owned by you and your dog. Note however the emails sent to you which represent the edits are sent at 72 dpi which is the normal resolution for email but is only useful in displaying images over the internet. All your images will be kept on our hard drive, and you or your dog may ask for them to be deleted at any time. Note once deleted, that’s it, they cannot be retrieved.
Yourdogworld uses high quality low lead Korean hot fix rhinestones. However note we said low lead. The rhinestones do have lead in them. It is not recommended the rhinestones be worn by anyone of any age who will decide for some unknown reason to remove the rhinestones and eat them!!! Further rhinestones are small and represent a choking hazard for people and dogs. They also are a choking hazard for cats, turtles and guinea pigs, but we only really care about dogs right? Further if you live in California note under Proposition 65: Consuming foods or beverages that have been kept or served in leaded crystal products or handling products made of leaded crystal will expose you to lead, a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or reproductive harm.
Yourdogworld has chosen Magnum Magnetics company for the magnets it prints. This company does only one thing, manufacture magnetic material, so they know what they are talking about. This is their recommendations regarding magnets:
Before affixing magnetic sheet to a metal surface, be sure all surface paints, clear coats and
waxes are cured (hardened). (Approximate curing times: paint—90 days; clear coat—60 days; wax—2 days.)
Clean the metallic surface and the magnet with mild detergent.
Wipe with a soft cloth or allow to dry.
Applying Flexible Magnet
Before applying, test all inks and paints used on the magnet for adhesion and solvent compatibility.
Affix to smooth, flat or gently curved metallic surfaces.
Make sure the entire magnet is flat against the metal surface. Do not place over protrusions (molding, decals, pin striping, etc.) or concave areas. There must be NO air pockets.
The magnet itself should be at a room temperature of 60°F (16°C) or above when installed to achieve best results.
Do not apply magnet that has been curled with the magnet side out. The magnet may not attach properly to the metallic surface resulting in lifted corners or air gaps which will weaken its holding strength.
If you place the magnet in the wrong position, completely remove the magnet from the surface and re-affix. Lift at sides and not at corners to remove. Do not pull the magnet across the surface, or it may stretch due to the resistance caused by the high magnetic strength.
Do NOT use on horizontal metal surfaces exposed to direct sunlight (such as automobile hoods), temperatures exceeding 160°F (71°C) or temperatures below -15°F (-26°C). Exposure to cold weather will make the magnet more brittle so use caution when handling.
Be aware that long-term use on surfaces frequently exposed to sunlight (such as vehicles) can result in uneven fading of the surface because the magnet-covered area is shielded from ultraviolet rays.
Do NOT use on non-metallic body fillers, simulated wood grain siding and repainted surfaces. NOTE: Doors and panels on some vehicles are not made of steel. This product will not work on aluminum and plastic surfaces.
Although most stainless steel is not receptive to magnets, a few grades are. If using magnets on stainless steel surfaces, remove daily and clean the magnet and the surface as directed below.
Cleaning Flexible Magnet
To guard against moisture and dirt buildup between the magnet and the metal surface, (particularly on outdoor applications), remove the magnet at regular intervals. Clean both the magnet and metal surface with mild detergent; wipe with a soft cloth or allow to air-dry. (For vehicle-mounted signs, remove and clean DAILY.)
After waxing and polishing, allow 2 days for wax to cure before applying magnets.
Okay, scared to death to buy a magnet. Don’t blame you. We have tested the magnets on our trucks and have had no problem, and by the way we don’t remove and clean them everyday. That being said, yourdogworld does not make nearly enough money to afford repainting even the junkiest car out there, so you know what you are supposed to do and we will leave it at that!
