Lagniappe in New Orleans means a little something extra.
This curated collection of hand engraved stationery provides: 120 deckle edge letter sheets hand engraved with one of the monogram styles shown from Mrs. Collins’s proprietary collection. $1200 includes shipping within the US. Your initials are drawn by hand, engraved by hand on a 1/2” thick steel die, then hand printed in gold, silver or white ink. Lagniappe includes your die, your choice of pink, light or dark blue deckle edge paper and matching, the printing, and blank envelopes lined in white.
Once engraved and printed, your stationery is carefully packaged in glassine paper. The monogram, artfully engraved on your steel die, is shipped with your stationery and it can be printed from over and over again. Real steel dies are truly a legacy object of desire to be used for decades to come.
