'The Skull' is an ode to contemplation or a meditation on the mysteries that lie within. Revered by man since he appeared on Earth, the skull embraces all things mysterious: The other side, of everything. We are here, this side; then we are not— we’re somewhere else, the other side. To us, skulls are just downright cool!

 Customize your place cards with your guest's names. With numerous fonts to choose from, you can have your cards arrive perfectly calligraphed with your guest's names printed on the backs. That's one less thing for you to do, and it's complimentary for the first pack. We even include a blank card called "Try your hand" to test your writing instrument if you choose to write your names yourself, or send them out to your calligrapher.

Conversation Sparker:

  • There is only one bone in the skull that is movable and it is the jaw bone or mandible.
  • In a forensic study, you can tell if the difference between a female skull and a male skull. Make skulls are heavier, larger, and thicker than the female skulls. The skull of a female is rounded and less protruded mandible.
  • An average of 785 pounds is needed to crush a human skull.
  • A skull with crossbones is used as a universal symbol of poison or death.
