Sweet Orr Work Clothes for Men Union Made Matchbook Magnet (MM122)

Oh how I love this image of working men showing us how strong a Sweet-Orr shirt is! I spent many weeks redrawing this cover. It’s such a joy though, this matchbook.  The company was founded by Irish cousins with last names Sweet and Orr respectively.  One of the guys who started the business had been part of the US gold rush and watched men rip their pants doing physically demanding work – so he wanted to build a superior product.  Such a genuine passion behind this dear company.  The whole tug-o-war image was real – the company, to prove the legitimacy of its product, asked any six men to try to pull apart their clothing, promising free clothes to anyone who succeeded.  No one did!  LOVE, love, love this cover!!

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.
