Waikiki Biltmore Hotel Honolulu Hawaii Matchbook Sticker (MB505)

Joseph Greenbach’s dream was to build this hotel, which he did, in 1953, for 3 million US dollars.  The history of the hotel, though, is more interesting from the viewpoint of Eddie Park, who, at 19, joined the staff at the opening as a bellboy.  The Biltmore was the biggest highrise on Honolulu and terribly glamorous.  On opening night one swanky couple standing beside the hotel pool were pushed into the water by a prankster who is still at large.  He said, too, that one dud completely misunderstood the modern plate glass windows in the brand new hotel and clocked himself damn good by walking right into the wall at full speed.  The former bellboy said that the electricity often went out in those early days, so he’d be huffing and puffing up flight after flight carrying luggage for guests.

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 2.286 x 2.470 inches OR 5.808 x 6.273 cm.

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.
