Let's go way back...
It all began when Dale Turner, founder of Magnets USA® and LifeLong Gifts™, had an idea that would help professionals better promote themselves and make lasting impressions with their clients. The solution? Magnetic business cards.
With limited resources and a whole lot of passion, Turner packed his magnetic business cards in an old hatchback and traveled from Roanoke, Virginia, all the way to Phoenix, Arizona, pitching his new product door-to-door. The response was overwhelmingly positive.
"I found that people loved them," says Turner, who still serves as president of Magnets USA® and LifeLong Gifts™. "When I started the company, I didn't expect it to turn into what it is today.".
Soon after establishing Magnets USA®, Turner introduced the Magnetic Calendar which has since become one of the most effective and popular relationship marketing gifts across the nation, remaining our best-selling product through the years by staying committed to providing the highest-grade calendars on the market.
From these humble beginnings, Magnets USA® and LifeLong Gifts™ have since become industry leaders in the world of custom magnetic marketing products, helping businesses of all sizes market their services and foster meaningful relationships along the way.
In 2014, upon seeing a growing demand for high-end, personalized gifts, Magnets USA® launched their sister brand: LifeLong Gifts™, a new line of luxurious, heirloom-quality, custom-engraved knives, cutting boards, drinkware, and more. The idea was to provide something greater than a typical promotional item. Gifts that express true appreciation, top-notch gifts that make a profound impact.
Today, this venture has blossomed into one of the most trusted resources for real estate closings, client referrals, and corporate appreciation gifts on the market.
As relationship marketing specialists, we're constantly searching for new ways to help clients stay connected. Few things are as meaningful as getting a handwritten note in the mail, especially in this digital age, and so Minute Mail Gifts was born.
Minute Mail Gifts lets users send personalized, handwritten notecards with the click of a button. Offering countless card designs and the ability to send cards in the future, maintaining deep, personal relationships has never been easier.
Over the last three decades, this small, family-run business based in Roanoke, Virginia, has grown considerably, now with over 35k clients across the continent and over 60+ employees. It is only through the success of our customers that we measure our own. We at Magnets USA® and LifeLong Gifts™ offer our sincere gratitude for all the unwavering support.
As we look to the future, we're excited to continue making the highest-quality products that help businesses and entrepreneurs succeed, and we vow to stay committed to providing the highest-quality service tailored to every client's unique needs.
