Very heavy. The flat keys "life" "love" and "dream" work well without adding a lot of bulk. The skeleton keys are much thicker but still lots of fun and are easily altered with ink, sandpaper, etc. They fit best on greeting card fronts and scrapbook stuff where the bulk won't cause a problem.
Sometimes it's just the little things on a page that really make it... WOW! These are such a sweet little touch that make a huge statement on a LO or to the cover of a mini-album. Very sturdy and heavy. I like the different metalic tones too. Fabulous!!!
I have wanted these for so long now I finally have them!!!!
I do not mind heaviness, they look even better in person. The perfect vintage finding.
If you don't mind spending the extra buck get them, I dont think you will regret it at all.
