Description

2 inch size vintage letterpress sold by the letter.

**************************************
How to Order:

1. Select the letters and quantities you need from the drop down menu.
2. Message me to put together something custom for you and/or help you find what you are looking for!

**************************************
Why You'll Love Them:

*This is a great set of letters partly rescued from a second story barn in Indiana from what's believed to have been a print shop as well as a collection from all over!
*See photos for examples and ideas.
*You will adore these displayed on your mantel or shelf, on a desk or dresser or in your entryway.
*So fun imagining the stories these letters have told, literally!
*Use letterpress to spell out a word, name or phrase.
*Can also be used as stamps!
*Add punctuation and numbers- ask me!

**************************************
Condition and Details:

*Good vintage condition and made of solid wood.
*The letters/pieces you will receive are out of the sets in the photos. Some (though not all) of this collection is believed to be Hamilton.
*Each letter in this collection is upper case and they range in color from use.
*They are all rectangular and can stand up on their own.
*A few have cutouts (imperfect sides) as these blocks were often manipulated for the job! Some have a slit in the back where they would fit onto a machine.
*I have ensured anything sticky or grimy was removed from each one, but there is dirt, ink and are marks on this set- it's part of what makes them so uniquely amazing.
*Important- these were used like stamps are so the image is backwards. Many letters like "M" have the same mirror image so do not appear backwards. Some letters like "E" can be turned upside down and do not appear backwards. Letters like "S" are backwards- but still look awesome (see photos). Ask if you have questions about a specific letter.

**************************************
Approximate Measurements:

*Each printer block in this set measures approximately 2" tall. Widths vary per letter and style.
