Insert Your Own Graphics – Frequently Asked Questions

Insert Wheel “Q&A”

We answer a lot of questions about our Insert Your Own Graphic wheels.  It’s the most versatile option we offer, but for some reason it gets lost in translation when it’s on your computer screen.

Understandable.  Our website is only 2D and when you have a flat image; it’s hard to show the many dimensions of our Insert Your Own Graphic wheels.Insert Pic copy

Here are some FAQs about Magnetic Insert Wheels:

QUESTION: Are the black and white circles in the picture printed on the section?

ANSWER:  The circles you see in our pictures are actually the insert holes.  We digitally print the graphics and bond them to a magnetic sheet.  They are shaped and then a hole is cut right out of the middle using a die cutting press.  The custom template we provide will allow you to print out your paper insert and then the magnetic section will hold it to the wheel.  Therefore, when your insert is behind the magnet, the portion in the center is what will show.

Conclusion:  There is a hole cut out of the middle of the section acting as a window (or frame) for your printed insert.


QUESTION:  Are the magnets flimsy?

ANSWER:  Our graphics are layered on 30 mil thick magnetic material.  This is commercial grade material primarily used on heavy duty commercial vehicles!

Not only can they hold printed inserts, but customers have tossed on business cards, gift cards, and even blu ray discs which have stayed put spin after spin after spin.  After years of use, you won’t have to worry about these magnets cracking or breaking under the pressure.  And you’ll never have to worry about your inserts flying out of its pocket when the wheel is spun like those plastic-faced insert wheels you see on other sites.

Conclusion: Actually, they’re really tough.


QUESTION:  What happens if I lose a section?

ANSWER:  If you lose a section, give us a call at 732-775-7050 and we will be more than happy to sell you a replacement section without having to purchase the entire set again.  We will keep your graphics on file for years to come, so getting the same one that you lost won’t be a hassle.

Conclusion:  We’ve got it covered.  Give us a call.


­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­QUESTION: What happens if my company changes its logo?    OR…

  I changed my mind and wanted a special section!  Do I have to buy a new wheel?

 ANSWER:  Our designers can create new graphics based on your peg count.  Adding more sections, changing color schemes, or changing the shape of the insert hole; it can all be done.  Our graphic’s team can create a whole new wheel based on just size and peg count.

 Conclusion:  We’ve still got it covered.  Call us for a new pre-sales rendition.

And the BIGGEST QUESTION of all:  These are more expensive than other sites.  Is it worth the cost?

 ANSWER:  The major reason for purchasing this wheel over the others is that you can use it over and over and over.  It has room to change and adapt to be used at any event.  Staff Incentive?  Print out inserts.  Tradeshow?  Print out new inserts.  Christmas party?  Birthday Party?  Charity event!?!  Print out new inserts!!!

 Since you can make them on a whim at any computer and printer, you can change your prizes anytime you want and it will still be printed and professional.  It’s like having a hundred prize wheels in one!  Overtime, your marketing department will be able to use this piece of equipment to build a foundation and clientele for years to come with endless possibilities.

 Conclusion: They’re worth every penny.

Spin the Wheel Games are Just as Fun at Home as on the Boardwalk

One quick tug on the wheel of a Spin the Wheel game, and the suspense – and fun – begins. Spaces marking big prizes, and a few not-so-big prizes, all roll by. Clicks gradually become further apart as the wheel slows. Players cannot help but smile with anticipation as they wonder where the clicker will land when the wheel finally comes to a stop. Many families experience this excitement at their local summer carnival or on the boardwalk of a nearby beach town, but the fun doesn’t have to stop there. Why not get your very own version for home?

A spinning wheel can be used around the house to determine the genre for a weekly movie night, what board game to play on a rainy afternoon, or who chooses the restaurant for Sunday lunch. With our Spin the Wheel games, families can have their very own wheel that will do just that.

Just like the “Spin the Wheel” games that families love to play on the boardwalk, custom prize wheels can be ordered for home use. Any type of prize or task can easily be written, placed, or printed into the wheel’s open panels.


Families who want a wheel with a single purpose, such as choosing a child’s reward for chores done well, can select a pre-printed model. When ordering, customers select each element – text, color, style, images, and theme – to suit their needs and taste. Therefore, football enthusiasts can have the colors of their favorite college team, science fiction fans can have an image of outer space as a backdrop, and parents can make a chore-free day one of the prizes.  You can even place a family photo in the center logo area if that’s what you want!

Some customers may want more versatility than our printed models offer. For them, we have models that feature dry erase boards and magnetic frames for using different inserts, making changing text and switching illustrations easy. Customers print the graphics they want from their home computer. The frames are even strong enough to hold gift cards or Blu-Rays!  With that versatility available, the same Spin the Wheel game that sports a superhero or princess theme for a child’s birthday party one day can be adapted for a neighborhood backyard barbecue or baby shower later.

With so many possible uses, our customers can incorporate their wheel into just about any lifestyle. No matter how they use it, they’ll create fun and fond memories with every spin.
