    • 1 homemade type case with 6 drawers of metal type
    • A2 size, cotton paper stock (500 pieces)
    • A7 size cotton paper stock (500 pieces)
    • Envelopes in Kraft paper, and various other colors

    • Display for trade shows like The Wedding Party Show
    • All current stock and samples

    • Packaging supplies (bio-degradable sleeves, baker’s twine, stickers, stamp)
    • Social media marketing accounts (website, facebook, twitter, pinterest)
