    Archivist matches are a luxury brand of matches that are made in the UK. All handmade candle lovers need a selection of accessories to enhance the perfect ambience and home candle experience. Archivist matches are renowned for their stunning quality and their match boxes are amazing and way too beautiful to throw away!  Their high-quality long matches, extra-long matches and their stylish matchboxes are often used as gifts.

    What is Letterpress Printing?

    The match boxes are also truly stunning. Archivist explains how they are made.

    “Letterpress printing uses a press that inks the image then ‘stamps’ the paper. The process has changed little since the Gutenberg bible was published in 1455. These days a few of the manual processes have been replaced by engineering advances​, but it is still guided through under the watchful eye of a master printer. The result is a product with a unique texture and an unrivalled finish.”
