Piper Cub Planes Easy to Fly Easy to Buy! Matchbook Magnet (MM102)

What is cool about Piper is that right before the US entered World War 2, the US began a Civilian Pilot Training Program and used the Cub as the primary trainer plane.  By the end of the war about 80% of American pilots had trained in a Piper Cub.  If you wanted your own plane you had to shell out 1,000USD to buy one!

My brother Edward has his own plane and flies. We live as expats so we fly all the time but always in the butthole end of economy class – so there’s nothing sexy about how we travel. The thing is – there is something about flying – You are truly traveling so far from your comfort and it always results in a paradigm shift – you see the world from an entirely new perspective when you travel.

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.
