American Wood Type
By: Retro Supply Co
In the early 19th century breakthroughs in printing technology transformed print forms away from hand lettered script styles and into industrial, hard edged blocks of type.
For over a century print companies like Hamilton Manufacturing, Empire Wood Type Co., American Wood Type Mfg Co. and Eastern Brass & Wood Type created beautiful type for mass consumption. A huge variety of gothic, antique and slab fonts were used to create gorgeous advertisements, notices, posters and more.
In the 1920s wood type product began to decline due to faster due to offset printing technology. But wood type still lives on through a handful of printers that still practice this tradition.
American Wood Type is directly inspired by this history and manufactures. Using common woods and inks we’ve done our best to recreate these print effects digitally using textures, patterns and a powerful Photoshop action.
