We heard the results of a study the other day that said pen and paper are on their way out of favor. We hope not! There is nothing like a great handwritten note and with this set you can help preserve good old fashioned Americana handwriting! This set we've put together is just such a rich historical hodge podge that will provide a fantastic springboard for all sorts of displays and projects for the home or for your business. Hopefully you'll love this collection as much as we do!

This collection includes the following:

2 packages of Hunt Manufacturing Co. Speedball Pens (6 B-3 pens, 12 B-5 pens, & various other pens)

Hundreds of letter and number thick paper stencils including a large horn, rooster and crowns

7 Stenso lettering guides (all Old English ranging from 1" to 2 1/2" letters)

10 lettering charts (charts 1-6 dated 1941 and charts 7-10 dated 1957)

1 Speedball text book (paperback text entitled "17th Edition Eight Pages in Color Speedball Text
Book: Lettering Poster Design for Pen or Brush" by Ross F. George. This edition is dated 1956.

Measurements: The paper stencils range in size but average at 3 1/2" x 3". The Stenso Lettering Guides are 10" x 8" and the charts are 19" x 12 1/2".

Condition: This kit is in great vintage condition and perfect for the 1950s inspired crafter. The pen tips are in great condition with no broken pieces. The stencils show heavy use with paint marks throughout. The lettering guides, charts and text book also show wear and the pages are beginning to yellow. The charts have staining on the corners as can be seen in the third photo and the Speedball text's paper cover came off.

Shipping: Media Mail
