Sunflower Hotel Abilene Kansas Matchbook Magnet (MM68)

We have a very dear friend from Kansas who has told us wonderful stories about the vast plains there. I have always loved sunflowers, but I learned to love them more when I was in Doha, Qatar. It is entirely desert there, so the whole city is beige. But at the construction site near where I drove my son to school, beside the worker shed, someone planted a few sunflowers in a pot and kept them watered and they were absolutely enormous. In the Middle East, the great glory is the sun. The quality of light there is absolutely pure, a stunning magnificence I’ve never seen anyplace else in the world. So it stands to reason that a pampered sunflower would be in heaven there.

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.
