Item details

all the convenience of premade chipboard letters and numerals for your titles and sentiments PLUS the beautiful uniqueness that only genuine vintage paper can provide! no two alphabet sets are alike, although they are all equal in quality and components. i have layered lots of different vintage maps and atlas pages onto lightweight chipboard and diecut these alphabets using cuttlebug's "red tag sale" font

you will receive a plasticine envelope containing more than 120 pieces: 2 of each numeral and punctuation; 4 of each consonant and 6 of each vowel, with a nice assortment of color and black & white, different paper finishes, small case and capitals... all in this slightly funky and totally fun font. the whimsical size and shape of this font means letter sizes range from approximately 5/8" to 1.5" tall for a quirky and individual style to your words!

please note that since i'm using actual vintage papers every single alphabet set is different; thus the photos are meant to give an IDEA rather than to represent the exact set you will receive, but they are guaranteed to be unique and cool!!!

i also have vintage music and foreign text chipboard alphabets and plan to add more themes in the coming months; in addition i have themed ephemera packs you can use to make your own elements and accents! check out my other listings!

Estimated Shipping

Zip or postal code

i ship within two business days of payment, via USPS, with delivery confirmation. you may add insurance for the price it costs at the PO--i think it starts around .70 cents. i ship paper packets in a RIGID envelope to keep them safe!

i re-use clean envelopes, boxes and packing materials whenever possible: it keeps costs down AND is just generally a nice thing to do, imo!

i'm happy to accept international orders, but be advised that postage from the USA can get expensive VERY quickly, and i have to charge you what the post office charges me! email or convo me for a shipping estimate on the items you're interested in.


Payments

i *LOVE* paypal because it's the quickest and easiest way to pay, but will also accept money orders in $US dollars. the faster i get it, the faster i can ship your stuff!!! :)


Additional policies

please remember that vintage items--especially those made of paper--are ALWAYS full of imperfections!!! this, in my opinion, is a large part of their beauty and unique charm!

i select the cleanest, nicest items for sale, but i GUARANTEE that every listing will have some "character" whether that be in the form of yellowing, scratches, speckles, stains, pencil marks, wrinkles, folds, little tears, rough edges, a faint musty smell... or all of the above! if you want the look of vintage without the flaws, there are some utterly gorgeous reproductions out there!
