Featuring classic 1980s typography, this wooden birth year memory box is sure to top the gift charts for anyone born in the decadent decade.
As the Petshop Boys might say... You've got the brains, this box has the looks, let's make someone happy! Buy it and we'll carve their birth year and name into the lid in a 1980s style motif. The carving is then whitened to make it really sing.
But first, the all-wooden box has been beautifully shaped and finished with a tough wax by hand.
From big hair to the fall of the Berlin wall and through to present day, this birth year box can swallow decades of dodgy fashion photos, rubber collections, badges, postcards, jewellery and more recent mementos.
All you need to do is choose the date you would like carved into the lid of the box and the name of the lucky recipient and we will do the rest to ensure the keepsake looks amazing!
After carving your text will be “whitened' using our unique processes which contrasts with the wood, giving the text a subtle white 'limed' look (as well as the 3D relief).
