More for your Money Sears Roebuck and Co. Matchbook Sticker (MB113)

So one of two founders of the company, Richard Sears, had the very bad luck to be a wealthy child whose father lost all they had in the Great Depression and then had the poor manners to drop dead.  By the time Sears was an adult, he sought work on the railroads, working at a station in Minneapolis, Minnesota when he received and attempted to deliver a huge shipment of watches to a local dealer who refused the shipment.  Sears, the clever fellow, purchased that remaindered lot at a steep discount and started his own business selling watches to the people who needed them most – railway station agents!  Eventually that idea bloomed into the huge catalogue and then storefront business people know as Sears.

Everyone loves the skating Sears penguin. People buy this image from us all the time. Its adorable and happy and the little scarf around its neck is precious. We went to see penguins in South Africa and they are utterly precious in person. They waddle about and it appears as though they are in a funk because their little shoulders are always in a slump, but this is just how they are made. It’s actually very, very hard not to pet them because they are so, so impossibly cute.

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.
