Hotel Barnum The Pink Elephant Matchbook Magnet (MM63)

The more closely I looked at this the more exquisite it became. She’s floating in the air pouring pink elephants out of her martini glass. It’s an extraordinarily fantastic image. People love it – it’s one of our most popular.  Such a FABULOUS art deco piece, this is.  The hotel was named for the circus man, PT himself.  Here in Tanzania we have had many elephant encounters on safari and they are utterly magnificent in their true liberated state.  It’s so dear the way they hold nose to tail, and the wee ones are particularly splendid.  There’s one HUGE reserve here that’s mostly elephants and we had such fun driving ourselves on safari there.

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
