Grand Rapids Supply Company Michigan Matchbook Sticker (MB344)

I love this sturdy old cover.  I love the building.  I bet it smelled like sawdust and nails on the inside.  I adore stores like this one where you can walk around and imagine all manner of projects.  Grand Rapids is a glorious city and has been at the heart of commerce for more than a thousand years.  Its position on an incredibly long waterway made it a point of continual contention among Native Americans.    Eventually a native Canadian Metis woman, Madeline La Framboise whose mother tongue would have been Ottowa, and her husband, Joseph arrived via canoe to the region.  I’d like to have met a woman brave enough to marry so far, far outside of her own culture, and then, after the murder of her husband, Miss Madeline persisting in pursuing business, trading pelts for huge profit. This weren’t no weak sista!  I also love that this place was on “Wealthy” Street!

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 2.537 x  2.409 inches OR  6.444 x 6.132cm (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.
