Hamley is Quality Built In Cowboy Matchbook Magnet (MM58)

This is one of my all time favorites. Everyone LOVES cowboys; we sell sooo many cowboys, but this cowboy – he is my absolute favorite. He’s magnificent, as is the stallion he’s on.  It took me several months working on this to get it right – there is so much glory in the image – the unrestrained power of the man and the beast.  I needed it to be perfect.  What is sooooo incredibly cool about Hamley is that it started with two brothers, JJ and Henry who left Wisconsin for North Dakota in 1883 with $10USD in cash and wound up starting a leather good supply company.  Eventually the business moved to the Oregon Trail, but they had, by this time in the early 1900’s, developed a reputation as being the absolute best of the best – no finer saddle could be found.  Everything about this matchcover is a treasure, the company, the image, and the brave history it represents.

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.
