Bert’s Tasty Sandwiches Lincoln Avenue Alameda California Matchbook Sticker (MB330)

These modest matchbooks are always my absolute favorites.  I love this man, Bert – that he built something he was proud, that he followed his heart and ambitions.  I lived briefly in Alameda, and what I recall was how cool the summers were, and how it smelled, like that part of California does, of eucalyptus.  My favorite novel of all time is by a Portuguese writer, Jose Saramago.  The main character is a clerk in the national house of records.  The name of the book is All the Names.   Every time I find a matchcover like this one, I think about the importance of  individuals, how utterly magnificent each human being is, how incredibly precious and perfect each of us is.  So, I know that Bert’s hamburgers and hotdogs were, indeed, a treat.  I’d like to have known him.

The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker.  All stickers are custom made.  (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)

All GypsyFaith die-cut vinyl stickers are printed on glossy, premium, extra thick vinyl.  We then seal the image in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading or tearing.  We will only sell the absolute top end of any particular product on our site.  Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable and valuable as our magnet products.

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

SIZE:  This sticker is exactly 1.907 x 2.464  inches OR 4.844 x 6.259 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.

*We require a minimum purchase of $10 for sticker orders.  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.
