Kelly’s Tires Kelly’s are Tough Smart and Thrifty! 1940 Platform Matchbook Sticker (MB75)

An early ad for Kelly tires says they’re “…not made so carefully merely to give them an air of distinction; it is mileage that is built into them so slowly and painstakingly by hand.”  It’s hard to be romantic about a tire, but they’ve done it here.  The company began in Ohio but move to Cumberland, Maryland where it spent most of its life.

I had so much trouble choosing which of these covers to save as the one with the little dog admiring itself is equally adorable. But in the end this plump hawker with his sharp striped pants won out. I LOVE the plaid backdrop on this cover.

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.
