The Archivist Matches

‘Archivist was founded in 1998. As the name might suggest; the archives of the Natural History Museum is where we first began. Although the archives have changed the enthusiasm for hunting for images has not gone. Collaborating with artists all over the world, we have created the finest range of British Letterpress Cards, Prints and lest we forget our luxury matches. Ink and Paper have always been central ingredients to the business and now that we are the proud owners of Britain’s largest dedicated Letterpress printing facility, we have the wherewithal to take our famous quality and innovation to even higher levels. You, our customers are fabulously sophisticated and are rightly demanding of not only quality but integrity in manufacture and we are with you on this exciting journey where ‘unfettered consumerism’ is replaced by ‘conscious giving’. We place people and the planet at the heart of what we do. Making sure we tread as lightly as we can on the Earth has been a steep learning curve and although we are far from perfect, we are trying… A card or matchbox is nothing without the paper it is printed on; so we are happy to announce that we only use sustainably sourced wood. What’s more, all of our packaging is FSC accredited. We are plastic free! All our cellos are biodegradable, so just put them in your food bin. Toxin free; unlike other matches ours don’t contain harmful toxins like sulphur or zinc oxide. All our products are either 100% recyclable or biodegradable. Working together to safeguard our planet is important, but undeniably a challenge. So if you have any ideas of what you would like to see us doing in the future please get in touch. It’s a journey and we are excited to see where it leads.’
