Texas 1936 Centennial Central Exposition Dallas Matchbook Sticker (MB462)
I lived in Texas for more than a decade, and I love it there. Many of my best girlfriends live there, and I have very, very fond memories of racing around on horses at their ranches. Since I’m a New Yorker, Texas felt like the savage frontier in 1979. There weren’t subways, but there was Mexican food – and Oh My God! How can you not love that?!! This 25 million dollar event was produced at massive cost and produced famous art deco buildings constructed only for the purpose of the expo, though many still exist. The expo unfolded in typical Texas style – over-the-top and glamorous. All the big cities bid to host it, but Dallas outspent them all and hosted more than 6.3 million visitors who spent a glorious 50 million dollars right at the outset of the Great Depression – making this event a critical piece of history as it saved Texas’ economy when other economies were devastated. Texas was at the forefront of civil rights with this event – they not only had a special hall dedicated to African Americans, but they hosted the first integrated sports event in the Cotton Bowl during that time. Even more, Orson Welles directed a famous version of Macbeth with an all African cast, and, in attendance was Franklin D. Roosevelt. So, you know, the Lone Star State certainly rocked that event.
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 1.870 x 1.840 inches OR 4.750 x 4.674 cm.
It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.
