The large printing block is to create certificates for members of the society. A metal printing plate is attached to a wooden block for support. The printing plate reads: The American Entomological Society Philadelphia. There are twelve names that make up the border of the printing block. The names are: Cresson, Uhler, Fitch, Edwards, Harris, Horn, Say, LeConte, Haldeman, Melsheimer, Scudder, and Norton.
