Howard Johnsons Famous Ice Cream Matchbook Sticker (MB69)

This is one of our top 5 covers. The eager boy, the puppy who is dripping ice cream from its muzzle, and the amazing profile on this cover probably combine to make it so. I grew up staying in Howard Johnson’s hotels in Florida as a child. They had yummy breakfasts.  When Howard Johnson the businessman wanna-be began his illustrious career he purchased a drug store and noticed that the majority of his profit emanated from the soda counter.  Then further, he determined that the way to increase this revenue stream was by serving the best ice cream.  Following that line of thought he added a bunch of butterfat to his secret ice cream recipe and viola – everyone is in love with the creamy goodness of Howard Johnson’s.  Later in his career he had this huge stroke of good luck when a play that was running in a prominent theater in Boston got banned for its content, and of course this gave the Eugene O’Neil production loads of PR as it relocated to much less fancy digs, digs that happened to be right near the one and only Howard Johnson’s.  Didn’t take long for the place to be a cool celeb hangout before and after performances.

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 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (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.
