Large Lot of Metal Type, Borders & Ornaments

Typecase Industries in Washington, DC is proud to offer this epic bonanza of metal type: 146 fonts plus 6 cases of borders and ornaments, fully sorted with job cases and 2 double-wide typecases (included). We’re downsizing our metal type collection, much of which came from the home workshop of a long-retired printer from Doubleday Publishing when we bought his estate 7 years ago.

The metal itself: clean, sorted, and available for you to examine by appointment at our shop in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, DC! Loads of full font families and one-off curiosities, plus calendars, numbering machines, borders, ornaments, and delightful odds and ends from letterpress history scattered within… plus 5 unidentified fonts for your researching and printing enjoyment. A true treasure hunt that we haven’t fully completed ourselves.

The logistics: the type and cases are on the ground floor, 10 feet from a freight door at curb level. Not a single stair, ledge, or weird angle to complicate things (dreamy)! We’re available to help you load up.

The price: $6900 for the whole lot. At this time we’re keeping the collection together, rather than breaking it up.

Questions? We’re all ears! Please contact Alessandra

Happy printing!
