Each little bookplate is hand fed into a 1907 Chandler & Price letterpress. Printed in chocolate brown ink on cream or kraft self-adhesive stock with a crack-n-peel backing paper. Stickers are 2 1/4 x 2 7/8 inches or 6 x 7.25 centimeters. Ten bookplates are packaged in a clear plastic bag, sealed with a descriptive sticker.

Nothin' strikes terror into th' hearts of yer victims like a bookplate. Yaaar!

PERSONALIZATION IS AVAILABLE FOR ALL BOOKPLATES!

Please convo me and I will set up a custom listing for you.

Personalization is a flat $20 charge, which covers one style of bookplate, one typeface, and one ink color. Order lots of bookplates to get the best deal!

For example, 100 personalized bookplates will cost $68 (4 25-packs at $12 each + $20 fee) + shipping.

The personalization charge includes one optional black & white proof. I recommend requesting it if you have concerns about the appearance of the typeface, but it will slow the turn-around time of your order by one or two days.

I size type appropriately given the length of the name and the size of the bookplate. I generally recommend using a typeface similar or identical to the typeface(s) used in the bookplate design, like the one shown in the sample above, but I welcome requests of typefaces you see in other designs. However, I may not be able to accommodate all requests, due to my equipment's limitations: I only have certain sizes of certain type!
