I did experiment with various ideas, but decided to stick with the original wood block design. These cartridges boxes are the close reproductions of the original packages for combustible envelope cartridges. The cardboard sleeve is manufactured on a nearly 100 years old Heildelberg Windmill letterpress machine. The same technology that was used in the 19th century.
Fabrica Letterpress:
They accept 6 pre-rolled paper cartridges. We have currently 3 versions: .44, .31 and .36 caliber, and we’ll have Confederate versions as well soon.
