Fosforos Hercules Meardi Hermanos Nemean Lion Swedish Safety Matches Matchbook Sticker (MB477)

The Nemean Lion was the target of the 1st of the 12 labours of Hercules.  The lion was impervious to swords and arrows; his pelt was essentially indestructible.  Eventually Hercules trapped the lion in its den and strangled it to death.  Then he skinned it using the lion’s own claws.  Hercules then wore the lion’s pelt.  There is so much that is illuminating about these holy stories, the idea of chasing a monster into its home territory, then attacking it in an unconventional manner and ultimately inhabiting it as a sign of absolute conquest.  Very cool matchcover!

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 1.629  x 2.343 inches OR 4.138 x 5.950 cm.

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.
