Tappan Bros. USG Roofing Glatex Asbestos Cement Siding Matchbook Sticker (MB342)

I love the wear and tear on this cover.  I imagine it in the pocket of a man’s pair of overalls.  I imagine the man in work boots, carrying a thermos of coffee on cold mornings.  Asbestos was the product of choice for the US forestry service in the 1930’s because it was not likely to succumb to insects, rot, or fire.  Later it was the big bad thing that had to be removed, but it was a popular product for a long time.  Since asbestos is naturally occurring crystal fiber, it was actually used in the Stone Age to reinforce pots in places like Finland.  It gets its name from Pliny the Elder who referred to it as “asbestinon” which means unquenchable.  I LOVE that!

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 2.546 x 1.773 inches OR 6.466 x 4.503 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)

It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.

*We require a minimum purchase of $10 for sticker orders.  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.
