A beautiful personalised gift or keepsake. Exclusive to notonthehighstreet.com
Our vintage wooden blocks have always been a best seller for Home & Glory. We are now able to offer the blocks stamped with a date of your choice, making these extra personal to you or your recipient. A perfect wedding present for a new couple, choose the letter from their surname and have their wedding date stamped into the wood. A lovely gift for a new baby, a christening, a graduation or a date you would like to commemorate!
All blocks (letterpress) were used in the printing industry, with each one having a varying degree of ink and patina. Used for printing posters and newspapers, they date from late 1800's through to 1940's. Most were discarded and burnt when new printing techniques came into place, which makes them a true relic to our media history.
Unique and collectable, but once they are gone, they are gone!
NB. We have a selection of different fonts. Once you have placed your order, we will select your block with care.
Simply choose the letter or number which suits your name/place and then put your required stamped date in the box provided as you place your order. The date will be placed where we think best suited to the letter or number.
Why not go for a family name with a different date on each one of a family member (shown in pic 3)
