Pencil Stamps

$24.00

These whimsical decorative stamps are perfect for the pencil devotee or used to adorn a notebook. They are hand-printed on the risograph onto gummed paper and pinhole-perforated in small batches by London-based Scout Editions. 

The Risograph originated from Japan and was manufactured by the Riso Kagaku Corporation in 1980. It was intended to be used as a copier for high-volume needs in establishments such as schools, clubs, churches, colleges, and political campaigns. Born out of the mimeograph, the Risograph brought together several printing processes previously done manually. The Risograph uses plant-based ink and the machines are incredibly energy efficient with a minimum amount of waste. Riso means ideal in Japanese.

Please note that these handmade prints will vary slightly, making each a charming limited edition of one. 

We are so pleased to be the only U.S. stockist of Scout Editions’ coveted designs.

The set includes two sheets of stamps, one of ten mini pencils and one of five long pencils.  Each sheet measures 210x56mm.

These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
