This listing is for a set of sparkly petri dish coasters. There are 4 coasters in the set, each with a different biology inspired design, including slime mold and bacteria!

I used a rainbow roll on these coasters, featuring teal blue & bright purple ink on a white background. Although it's difficult to photograph, these coasters are very very sparkly in person!

The design is printed by hand onto a thick coaster blank, using my hand crank press. Then, the coaster is mounted to a cork backing and coated sparkles, then in thick, shiny, waterproof epoxy resin. These coasters will last for a long time!

These come packaged in a clear bag, perfect for giving as a gift.

Please note: Sometimes I have these in stock, but sometimes they are made to order! In the latter case, they can take up to 5 days to ship -- please convo me ahead of time to check my stock if you need something by a specific date!

This was the best gift I gave this year for Christmas. Very well done embossing and it was delivered in a very secure package. I loved the size and the thickness of paper used. I highly recommend her products!
