Hirschkafer Cerf-volant Stag Beetle Matches Matchbook Sticker (MB508)

These little fellows are called stag beetles because their ginormous mandibles look like deer antlers.  I’m keen on bugs as my son went through a stage where he collected them.  He was 3 and we had just moved to Guangzhou, China.  He scampered all around our huge compound collecting gigantic Chinese insects.  We kept them in his room.  Eventually I noticed that they smelled.  I figured there was so little actual flesh inside of such a thing it would not really rot – I was mistaken.  I had to find a way to seal up the bugs we collected.  That first Christmas in China my baby asked Santa for bugs.  So he got so many of them wrapped up individually, on Christmas morning.  We were really amused that when our shipment arrived from the little pacific island of Rota where we had been living, we realized that the artificial Christmas tree we bought in New York early in our marriage, and then carted around the world, had actually been manufactured in Guangzhou, as that was stamped on its original box where we always kept it.  So we brought that tree all the way back to Guangzhou 5-6 years after we bought it.  Anyhow – it’s a cool beetle!

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, WATERPROOF vinyl.  I’ve got the tailgate of my truck covered in stickers and I live on an island off the coast of Maine where the weather is harsh and they are fine. You can create beautiful, durable collages with our images, do a whole wall or ceiling or appliance or just a tin can.  You can recreate old postcards, design your own journals or scrapbooks, create wallpaper, anything!  If you do something amazing, send me a photo of your work; I’d LOVE to see it.  I, of course, think that EVERYTHING ought to be embellished!  My house is completely embellished.  If there is a bare spot here, it doesn’t stay bare long!  Our images are completely unique.  We seal stickers in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading, water, 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.
