A & P Iced Coffee Matchbook Magnet (MM9)

A & P was the store my family used on Long Island when I was a child.  There were long narrow aisles of items, and the whole place always smelled like fresh raisins.  The Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company  was, until the mid 1960’s, the biggest retailer in the US.  Their original product was tea.  Much later A & P branched into coffee, then sugar, and then many items.  I love the icy coffee image, and the beautiful, old fashioned red and green on this matchcover.  It was so damaged when I found it I wasn’t sure if I could do justice to it.  I drink decaf espresso daily; couldn’t live happily without it.

The image you see is exactly what we used to produce the magnet.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith magnets are double the strength of a normal refrigerator magnet; this magnet will hold several pieces of paper to a surface without sliding.  The surface is textured, so it does not scratch.  We developed it over a period of several years with our production partner in China.  It took us a long, long time to get to this PVC product.  Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable as our handmade magnet products were when we first began selling them more than 14 years ago.

Images used to make our magnets are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.

SIZE:  This magnet is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

PACKAGING:  This magnet is packaged in a hard plastic container for retail sale, then we place it into the mailer.

It ships in a hand addressed, postage stamped padded mailer.

*We ship First Class US Mail for our customers domestic and international; for domestic orders the ship time is approximately 7 days.  We do not expedite shipping.  Cost for shipping, as well as tax, is calculated at checkout.
