Old Reading Pilsner Beer Matchbook Sticker (MB4)

Old Reading Beer was a Pennsylvania Dutch Lager beer.  It was, in wintertime, often delivered by sleigh.  When Prohibition began in the US a bunch of Old Reading Beer was dumped into the Reading sewers, immediately causing the manhole covers to blow right off the holes.  Then the suddenly deemed illegal beer flooded the streets and residents came clamoring out with pans and pots to collect the free alcohol.  It’s a cool cover.  My father’s business was the beer business for most of my adult life – so I know a lot about beer.  We sold Miller in San Antonio, Texas, and for a long time the distributorship was number one in the country – there were towers and towers of beer in the warehouse.  It smelled like bread all the time.  In summertime in Texas I’d sometimes duck into the keg room to cool off.

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.
