Pep Boys Manny Moe and Jack Auto Accessories Tires Matchbook Magnet (MM98)

These three guys probably play poker with their friends and tease each other. Their wives, I’m sure, make good potato salad, run the house with stern discipline, and are terribly sexy with long gel nails. I am crazy about the Pep Boys’ snazzy little white suits, impish grins, and their rounded legs as they stand there in total solidarity.  This company was founded in 1921 by 4 guys, Manny, Moe, Moe #2, and Jack who invested $200.00 each; they named their place Pep. My favorite anecdote about this matchbook is that the name “Pep Boys” emerged from cops near their first store telling folks with burnt out headlights to “Go see the Pep boys.”

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.
