Sardi’s West 234 West 44th Street New York Matchbook Sticker (MB461)
To get people to come in, Sardi hired a Russian refugee Alex Gard to draw caricatures. The contract between Gard and Sardi listed the compensation as 1 meal per day in exchange for caricatures. The very first caricature was of one of The Three Stooges. Long into their incredibly successful partnership the young heir, son of Sardi, offered Gard a better contract, but the man refused. The club became the meeting place for newspeople and drama critics, or, as they were called, the Cheese Club. Each member of the club had his own caricature, and that image was hung over the special table reserved for the group. Sardi was a huge theater fan, so he made sure his place was open late into the night so people could stop by after the Broadway shows.
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 2.141 x 1.983 inches OR 5.438 x 5.037 cm.
It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.
