Square Matchboxes (The Cock)

6 GBP / In stock.

A selection of gorgeous square matchboxes each measuring 11cm square.  The matchboxes are designed and printed here in the UK by Archivist.  

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 generous length.  Each box contains approximately 125 matches.

– Dimensions: 110mm x 110mm
– Designed, printed and assembled in the UK

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