These are single column letterpress type galleys. Even if you don't do any printing, these have plenty of decorative and crafty possibilities. They have been used and might need to be cleaned up a bit. You will receive the ones in the photos. Each is 3-1/2" x 23-1/2" x 5/8."

Historical note: These galleys came from a printing shop that was run by one family for 130 years. The founder opened the shop when he came back from the civil war.

All of our printing items are in used condition. We have only given them a quick cleaning for the purposes of photographing them with lots of detail. But if you know anything about printing, you know 50 years and more of print shop residue is difficult to completely eradicate. We will be offering loads of really cute household related item cuts and wood type in the months ahead.

The postage is calculated as parcel post to California from Pittsburgh. If you are closer, send your zip code for an accurate shipping quote. I've listed this in other quantities because of the flat rate possibilities when purchasing more than one.

Thank you for visiting Preserve Cottage,
