Mini Swears: Letterpress metal type, four tiny letters (f,u,c,k) to keep or share. Font size/style will vary (betw 8-16 pt fonts)


In stock


Have you run out of fucks to give? Have no fear!

With this listing, you can regroup and recoup (at least one last fuck) with this set of four (just four) teensy, tiny letterpress characters (you guessed which ones).

What you do with them is entirely up to you: pop into a curio, set on a windowsill, use them for pencil rubbings or tiny leaf bruisings (because why not). Please don’t eat them, though. They taste strangely like paint chips for reasons we needn’t mention.

We recommend keeping a couple sets on hand in the event that those in your life should happen to run out (always good to have at least one last fuck on hand, just in case).

This set of four tiny letters pairs well with tiny gift boxes and copious amounts of red, red wine.

It should be noted that font size and style may vary, and may be hard to see without reading glasses if you’ve reached your forties (we’ve run out of fucks – and focus, too). Fair warning.

Nothing beyond four small typesetting dies are included with this listing. The other type photos are offered as a representative sample of what these parts look like when they’re not lined up for a photo shoot. Ideas for use have been offered for comedic effect – probably not wise to actually give away any fucks right now when they’re in such short supply for everyone.

Mr. Ant has been included for size reference – that he showed up at all is a minor miracle (and if you can find him in the last photo, DM us for a 10% coupon code good on any $50+ purchase in our etsy shop (including fucks to keep and share).

There’s nothing we enjoy more than rescuing treasures and getting them into the right next set of hands, so when this old letterpress type reached us in a jumble, we sat right down and started sorting it (because that’s just what we’re inclined to do at junket).

Lead type has analog mystique: letterpress has been around for hundreds of years, and the things we choose to communicate with our words impact our lives in important ways… for example, science has determined that using swear words are palliative — and we could all stand to hurt a little less right now, I think.

Condition is used. We call it character.

Secondhand goods are embodied energy: choosing to purchase secondhand items instead of new extends the useful life of existing things and avoids the new manufacturing emissions that amplify climate change.

Your order will be shipped in sassy-pants secondhand packaging and will not be put on a plane. If you live in MN, WI, IA, MI, ND, IL, or SD — shoot us a message and we can arrange for a lower shipping option!

Choosing to be patient is good for our future. We’ll do our best to be good to you with this order, no matter how much we may curse while filling it. 😉

Thanks ever so much for supporting our work!
