Warner Bros. 100% Talking Picture The Terror Now! Warner Theater Matchbook Magnet (MM123)
Warner Bros. has the coolest backstory. Four Polish-Jewish guys are with their mom and dad immigrating the the US and they decide they want to go into the film business in 1900. They get themselves a movie projector and invested $150usd so they could show movies to Pennsylvania and Ohio miners during their off time. By 1903 they’d purchased a very old theater, the Cascade, which was in danger of being demolished. To save it, they bought it. By the late teens they were making films and opened the Warner Brothers Studio on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Their first really HUGE hit was Rin Tin Tin – a dog movie! The dog was so famous he was paid $1,000usd weekly to star in more films. By 1924 the 4 brothers owned one of the most powerful studios in Hollywood.
I did this for my Cousin’s partner John, who writes terror fiction – successfully – like with a contract and people who follow him and everything. John is absolutely passionate about scary books and movies and has a truly encyclopedic knowledge of both. It’s no wonder people love his novels. I love John, and I love LA. LA, the film industry – such a happy, sunny world it is there, and it was such a fun place to live the 10 years I was there. So I love this matchcover for tons of reasons.
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.
