Letter Links

For any author, writer, or lover of letters, these distinguished sterling silver cufflinks are made from the keys of real vintage typewriters. Pick two of the first letter of a name, or go with two different letters to form initials - either your own or those of someone you love, so you can really wear your heart on your sleeve. Created by designer Ward Wallau. Handmade in the USA and Mexico.

Cufflinks are sold individually at $80, or $160 per pair.

As the cufflinks are handmade from various typewriters, font, color and style may vary slightly.

Authenticity card included.

California

Disappointed when the MTA filled in the "Y" cutout of their classic subway tokens, Ward Wallau was inspired to find a fun way to incorporate the unaltered tokens into cufflinks. He wanted to prove to the MTA that the original tokens were worthy of celebrating and repurposing and, after 11 years of "no," Ward became the first licensee of the New York City MTA. Since that time, this "authenticity hound," has assembled and grew his team of artisans, production staff, and authenticators in Berkeley, California, where they re-imagine nostalgic artifacts as unique gifts that tell a story. Ward loves breathing new life into things that already exist, be it letterpress blocks, a wooden seat from Wrigley Field, or a bat broken at a Major League baseball game. "This business is ever-challenging, dynamic, and satisfying," he says. "It's not a good day if you don't learn something new!"

pretty disappointed

I was really looking forward to giving these to my boyfriend for our 1 yr anniversary however I am returning them because they look really cheap. I showed a few my girl friends and they all said it looked like something I paid only a of dollars for. The metal part has poor quality and the initial does not look classy as I hoped. I read a lot of the reviews before buying the product and everyone seems to have different qualities in the product so maybe I just got unlucky with mine. :\

You've got to be kidding

Bought two as gifts assumed would be pairs and not single cuff links, I love Uncommongoods but this merchant is obviously confusing. Too bad the two I ordered weren't the same initial, since I could have then had a proper set.

Cool Cufflink

These typewriter key cufflinks are pretty cool. I got them for my fiance for our wedding coming up in his initials. I kinda wish I had a reason to wear them myself :)

Beautiful and Unique Gift

I bought these cufflinks as a gift for a close friend and colleague of mine who has two last names. He loved that they were both classic and unique, and really loved the "custom" feel of them (since I had purchased his initials). He said the gift was heartfelt and thoughtful, and would be a great conversation starter in his business travels. I am so glad that I purchased them!

Excellent product and speedy delivery

Pricing was competitive to stores that carried these sterling silver typewriter key cufflinks, but did not have the letters I needed. Uncommon Goods had the desired letters and the quick delivery was amazing. I was very pleased. Their packaging in T shirt bags is very appealing. I bought three so my son can mix it up!

Gave a pair (two different initials) to my husband, who liked them very much. They're whimsical and of a good quality--I'd order these again. Great gift!
