These old print blocks, can be used to spell out meaningful text and dates, perhaps names, initials or words*.

Our treasured collection comprises of different fonts, sizes and date of manufacture, some circa late 1800's through to 1940's. All were used in the printing industry, so each block has a varying degree of ink and patina, and course all of our blocks are back to front which adds to their appeal. The letterpress can still be used for printing.

These blocks are so special nowadays as most were discarded and burnt when new printing techniques came into place. Some have been found and saved, which makes them unique and collectable, so once they are gone, they are gone!

An original decoration for the home with sentimental charm. Imagine the stories these vintage print blocks have told in the past..

    I ordered a mix of 3 sizes and different letters etc of these Printers blocks. Each assortment arrived wrapped in ribbon and the whole order was wrapped in tissue paper and string - it was obvious the care that had been taken and almost a shame to unwrap them! The blocks themselves are absolutely lovely. Well worth the price in my opinion. I will be using them for art projects and shall certainly be ordering more.
