Edgewater Beach Hotel 200 Car Garage Chicago, Illinois Matchbook Magnet (MM43)

This is such a handsome matchcover. The font is great and the name itself is quite lovely. It’s a sweet number of cars for the garage, too.  In Edgewater’s rooms you could have found Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Nat King Cole, and even Babe Ruth.   The hotel even had its own radio station WEBH.   It was so swanky at the hotel that there was a strict dress code for the glamorous dining room.  The architect designed two huge buildings side by side there, one was the hotel, the other were private residences.  He had the hotel painted “sunrise yellow” and the homes painted “sunset pink”.

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.
