Mini Swears: Letterpress
Mini Swears: Letterpress
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.
ShippingThe Fine Print
• 100% secondhand packaging
• intentionally slow in-house service levels
• ground shipping only
This is climate-competent commerce, and we talk a bit more about each of these strategies on our 'official' shipping policy page:
Proactive Satisfaction + RefundsRefund policy
We have adopted a 'generally generous' approach to fulfilling many of our product listings, as sending a wee bit extra can avoid costly errors & 'fix it' shipments (besides, we find most folks appreciate the occasional freebie).
That said, if you would prefer to avoid the extras, we will gladly rightsize or downsize your order on request (product price would remain the same because more labor + less product = wash). If you prefer this option, please include a detailed order note to specify the quantity you wish to recieve (i.e. 'please send precise count of 7 for XYZ product').
As a rule, we discourage returns - but we also don't abide crappy customer experiences. To initiate issue resolution in the event that we miss the boat with your order (gaps happen!), head to our refund policy page (linked here - and at the bottom of any page) to get started.
because the most sustainable goods possible are the ones that already exist.
