Meet Harold’s ABCs!!!! It’s an alphabet set like no other! The little stamps have base images (the side that touches the stamp block) that line up perfectly together. There is no need to space the letters! They go in a straight line perfectly!!!! HOW AWESOME IS THAT? I’ve already requested additional fonts 😉
