You are purchasing a group of 8 individual Runes - The First Aett Group. A full set usually includes 24 - 25 Runes. This is the Small Size, for the Runes. Which makes them very portable (and more affordable). These Runes are great for Casting, and Reading. They are small enough that they should all fit comfortably in your hand for shuffling, though for casting, you wont likely cast all 25 at once.
Important: Each Aett is sold separately. This allows you to order the groupings in different colors, to help your Readings to have more clarity. We recommend this approach. You can also purchase a separate Blank Rune, often called the Wyrd Rune. And you can choose a color for that also. You likely would want it to be a different color than all the other groupings (Aettir).
Travel: We would recommend that you search online, and purchase a small bag to hold these Runes in. This is a standard approach for most Rune Stones. And it will work well for these Custom Runes.
Travel option, that is still in the design stage, is that we will likely be offering a custom case, made specifically to hold these Runes. Note: 3d Printing is an amazing new technological solution, but it is not cheap yet. So, the more affordable solution is to use your own bag, or buy a nice one online. The case will likely be a bit pricey. But it will be custom designed, and it will be made specifically to hold a set of 25 Small Futhark Runes. Designed by Dallas Good.
Material Note: This small version will not be as strong as the Medium size. (The Large version is not available at this time.) Keep in mind that if you print these in plastic - they will be plastic. This means that though they will still be fairly robust, and if treated well, will likely last you a long time - there are sturdier materials that you could use for printing.
Metal Prints: We have offered these runes if various types of metals, which will likely have the longest shelf life. Usually, due to the cost of 'custom metal prints', you might want to start out with a strong plastic version. Then if you find that you like the set, you might consider ordering them in metal, which would likely be strong enough to last you for a lifetime.
