RCA Victrola His Master’s Voice Matchbook Magnet (MM108)

The intensity of expression on Nipper’s precious countenance is enchanting. This image has an enormous afterlife – I’ve seen dozens of this image plastered on all kinds of things. Apparently the dog was actually listening to his master’s voice as the photo was taken, which explains the utter devotion in his expression.  When Victrola realized how powerful Nipper was they started saying to potential customers, “Look for the dog.”  It’s love you see, quite clearly, in this image, which it why it works so perfectly. Nipper loved his humans.

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.
