Chinese Food Good Luck Matchbook Sticker (MB13)

The original matchcover’s Mandarin characters “wonderful food”.  I’ve changed the characters to read “good luck”.   I lived in China for several years and love it very much.  We stayed just across the border from Hong Kong in a gigantic city called Guangzhou.  I love Chinese art, and I have made a long, serious study of the Chinese philosophy called the I Ching.  One of the wisest things about Chinese thought is the idea of luck – that you cannot always control the events in your life, but if you accept the idea of good luck and bad luck you can look for balance.  In China luck is a critical part of life.  Luck plays into what colors you wear: (red), where you live: (NEVER the 4th floor because the word for 4 means death in Mandarin), and even when you conceive a child.  China is such a dense, wonderful treasure of a place, crowded, sprawling, but so solid, so very old.  Good luck is one of the oldest Chinese treasures.

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 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 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.
