Ewald Brothers Golden Guernsey, Minneapolis, Minnesota Matchbook Magnet (MM46)

Chris Ewald immigrated to Minnesota from Denmark in 1884.  He took a job delivering milk and saved all he made so that in 2 years he was able to buy his own cart and horse and route.  He created Ewald Brothers with his brother and sold only super-rich guernsey milk.  Eventually he and his brother had 100 horses and 40 wagons!  I actually have a milk cap from Ewald too!

The red head on this cover could not be any cuter if he tried. I’ve such a soft spot for red heads as my very baby brother, one of twins, was such a downy little red head from the get go and I was 12 and he was just so cute to cuddle.  Plus I want to hug the cow; she’s so sweet. People love this cover, too. We tend to sell a LOT of cows!  Cows really need their own category – I had a HUGE cow collection before our house burned.  I must renew my hunt for secondhand cows.

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.
