Attala Company Magnolia’s Best Flour Matchbook Magnet (MM82)
Besides being an utter marvel, this cover is really for Alice, whose honeymoon inspired the entire company for me more than 20 years ago. We still own the family farm in Athens Georgia where we found the little set of original matchcovers from Nama’s (Alice) honeymoon car trip. Alice loved to entertain, and she sometimes chose to use gigantic magnolia leaves from the truly gigantic trees on our farm as place cards. She’d write the names of her guests on the petals and then the words would gradually darken and appear as the petal aged for the party that evening. This was not one of her honeymoon matchbooks, but I’m pretty sure she’d like it anyway. This little company sat right on the railroad way in Kosciusko, so it was cleverly placed to be able to ship its goods.
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.
