Good and Plenty Everybody Likes Them! 5c Matchbook Magnet (MM53)

The colors are amazing on this cover. The slogan is really fun, too. It’s perfect.  The early ads for Good and Plenty starred a little fellow named Choo-choo Charlie who had a box of these candies in his hand as he pretended to be a railroad man, and he’d shake the box to imitate the noise of the train’s machinery.  What’s kind of cool about that for me is that here in Tanzania where we live there are men who walk the street every single day selling mostly made to order coffee.  So they carry this complex metal can with live coals at the base to boil water for anyone who orders a coffee – and as they walk they shake shillings in their hands and the coins make a sort of cool metallic rattle.  The other interesting thing about Good and Plenty is that it’s the oldest American candy brand, originally made in Quakertown, Pennsylvania.

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.
