New York Life Insurance Home Office Matchbook Magnet (MM94)

Many people love this building. Whenever I’m lucky enough to be in New York City I always think it smells like cold water and burned pretzels – which is wonderful. You cannot help but be energized clippity clopping down Madison Avenue past this building. We sell LOTS of copies of this image. In my heart I’ll always love insurance salesmen because it was how my father made his first big scores when he’d just finished college. He worked for US Life and was president by his thirties, though he wound up owning a beer distributorship later in life. It’s a splendid architectural gem – this old building.

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.
