Gimbel’s Restaurant Randolph Street Chicago Matchbook Sticker (MB332)
The phrase “sensible price of course” is so adorable. Gimbel’s was responsible for hosting the very first Thanksgiving parade in 1920 in Philadelphia. Adam Gimbel was a Jewish immigrant from Bavaria who had seven sons. The patriarch and his sons gleefully rivaled with Macy’s, until their competition became so well known that the phrase, “Does Macy’s tell Gimbel’s” became a common cliché. By 1930 they were the largest department store in the world. Gimbel’s debuted the Slinky! (I’ve forever been keen on Slinky!) They were also the site chosen to auction off the extraordinary collection of objects from the estate of William Hearst.
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 1.954 x 2.601 inches OR 4.969 x 6.608 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.
