Yosemite Park California Yosemite Winter Sports Matchbook Magnet (MM140)

I did this for my superstar athlete brother Edward who can literally drop himself out of a helicopter and ski down ANYTHING. But this skier, in his purple snow, is magnificent anyway. My husband and I, before we married, took an Easter trip to Yosemite and hiked all the toughest hikes we could in a few days there. What a paradise Yosemite is! It’s a wonder among wonders.

The name Yosemite, when it was applied to this place, was mistakenly believed to mean “full grown grizzly bear” when in fact this native American term yohhe’meti actually means “they are killers”, a reference from the Miwok tribe about the Ahwaneechee people who dwelt in the valley.

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.
