Extra Long Matches (Queen's Guard)

9 GBP / In stock.

These are super long matches (29 cm), that come in gorgeous matchboxes designed and printed here in the UK by Archivist.   Perfect for lighting fires and candles.  

Archivist was founded in 1994 by Sarah and William Allardice to offer the highest quality Letterpress printed cards and stationery.  Letterpress printing is a term used to describe printing using a press that inks the image then ‘stamps’ the paper. This is a process that has changed little since the Gutenberg bible was published circa 1455. It's the traditional method of printing that's since been overtaken by litho printing.

The matchboxes are a fun take on something ordinary and rather useful, and the matches are a very generous length.  

– Dimensions: 290mm x 60mm
– Designed, printed and assembled in the UK

We regret that we are not able to send matchboxes outside the UK.
