Lance Salted Peanuts Matchbook Magnet (MM78)

So this guy, Philip Lance, is a coffee roaster in 1913 in Charlotte, North Carolina.  He gets this customer who asks if Lance can source the guy some peanuts.  Lance finds a way to get his hands on 500 lbs (226.79kg) of Virginia peanuts and the loser he’s just done this huge favor for skips out on the deal, leaving Lance with a hell of a lot of nuts.  So Lance uses his roaster and roasts them!  How cool is this guy!?  Soon he’s this peanut mogul selling little paper sacks of nuts on the streets of Charlotte for 5 cents a piece.  He grinds the nuts and learns how to make peanut butter, hand packing jars of the nut butter out of his own house.  He starts promoting his peanut butter by giving samples away on a cracker – and viola!  He’s invented his little peanut butter cracker sandwich which is DELICIOUS!   LOVE this guy!  Everyone loves peanuts, apparently, since we sell MANY, many peanut matchcovers. The mustard yellow is great here, too.

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.
