One of the joys of letterpress printing is that so much of the process is trolling through old found objects called cuts or dingbats or printer's flowers. When they are large enough to print an image this size, they are usually called cuts. So these 7 quirky images were printed from copper plated cuts that I found in a dusty barn full of letterpress equipment -- some are borrowed, some came from printing swaps.
This is the Christmas set. And I have printed it twice over the years, with variations in color. You will get 7 tags, but there are 2 different finishes. Please indicate Brighter (photo one) or Darker (photo two) when purchasing. If you do not indicate a preference, I will send you the brighter ones, because I have more of them. Also, the paper varies in the sets.
Once you find these little treasures, what to do with them? Gift tags, I say! Gift tags. Each cut is hand printed on a Chandler and Price press, then die cut or corner rounded for a finished sweetness. The largest tags are about 1.5" x 2" and the smallest ones are approximately 1" x 1.5".
You can reuse these for years, or put them up as paper ornaments -- I'm sure there's lots of uses that I haven't even thought of. The 7 tags will come to you with string for hanging and packaged in a wee plastic sleeve.
