Visit Springer’s Gifts for Everyone Be Wise Economize Matchbook Magnet (MM117)

BOY do I love the smoking sombrero wearing guy in profile here. We sold LOTS of the woman crawling under the pay toilet. But in the original it was a mean cover because it pictured a person as if they were too cheap so I remodeled it to be a sexy blonde. Absolutely adore this cover.  I was once driving to visit a friend in El Paso and I’m always lost and this was well before cell phones or Google maps.  So anyhow – I stop at this payphone on this bridge and call her saying, “Soooo – I’m about to cross the toll bridge – am I heading in the right direction?”  She goes, “No, yeah – that’s not a toll bridge- we don’t have those in El Paso. You’re heading into Mexico, so unless you really want to visit you’d best turn around.”  I love Mexico, but it wasn’t the plan for that weekend.  Anyhow – it wasn’t the only time I’ve almost accidentally crossed an international border, but it was the first time.

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.
