It’s Ford for Forty Matchbook Magnet (MM50)

Everyone loves this 40’s Ford Guy. People love the V8 image and are very loyal to old Ford. It’s an amazing design – the guy with his mod body and V8 hat. The original philosophy behind Ford is really, really compelling.  Mr. Ford felt strongly that the employees mattered more to the company than the shareholders and paid very dearly for this unpopular idea.  He also felt strongly that the company should not go into financing as consumer debt was bad for people, so he avoided that  direction even as other car companies ran towards it.  It’s really cool that this super duper wealthy dude who was an utter genius also had such a big heart and did what he believed no matter the cost.  Props.

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.
