Natural Bridge Virginia One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World Matchbook Magnet (MM90)
I had a hella time hand drawing each leaf in this old cover, but old landmarks are beautiful and compelling. I can smell the fresh water rushing through this image, and I have a keen sense of how it would feel to walk in the glittering sunlit shadows of this water-loud, public park. Such precious places these are. This bridge is 215 feet high by 90 feet long (66 meters by 27 meters) running over the Cedar Creek. It is a sacred Native American site, and has been famous for a very, very long time. The bridge was actually purchased from Britain’s King George (for 20 shillings) in 1774 by Thomas Jefferson himself, as part of 157 acres of land. The parcel was very recently in jeopardy of development and was rescued by a conservation group for 9 million US dollars and converted into American park land.
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.
