Hotel Peabody Memphis The South’s Finest Matchbook Magnet (MM65)
They’re famous for their ducks. A family friend once took me there for lunch. I’ve seen the actual ducks at the famous Peabody! The tradition of these dear little ducks at the hotel dates back to the guy who was managing the hotel when our matchbook was made – Mr. Schutt. He’d been hunting with friends in Arkansas and thought he’d amuse the guests by letting loose four live ducks in the hotel’s splendid indoor fountain. It turned out not to be much of a joke since the swanky patron doted on the little birds and fell in love. Ever since, up until today, the Hotel Peabody has living ducks inside.
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.
