GypsyFaith Bazaar


New Ford Tractor Dearborn Equipment Matchbook Magnet (MM51)

This farmer is plowing in such a fine outfit. He’s terribly handsome too. People love tractors, we sell a LOT of tractors. The old ones with their spindly parts are particularly lovely.  The way Ford actually got more engaged with tractors happened when a man, Ferguson, who had been working in England on tractor innovation finally got a chance to demonstrate his new product in front of Ford.  For was terribly impressed and shook Ferguson’s hand on the spot, and they went into commercial production in Dearborn, Michigan based on the British design.

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.
