In 2013 we will begin experimenting with offering Letterpress spacing material and freshly cast metal type for sale. This will be an excellent opportunity for budding letterpress printers to get high quality type in small quantities. All type will be brand new, and cast at The Press & Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred Bixler.
We now have brand new letterpress spacing material in a handy storage box for hand-setting metal type! Every printer needs spacing material, and these sturdy labeled boxes are a must have! Every box comes with approximately 1.5lbs of lead spacing material, and precisely cut paper 1/2 point thin spaces. They include 1/2 point, 1 point (or 1.5 point), 2 points, 4-em, and En quad spacing material. We have boxes for 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, and 24pt type setting available for $60 each + shipping. Contact Us to purchase, or for more information.
