Metal Type Spotting

Metal Type Spotting

The Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce uses metal type in their News Page header. We didn’t know they were into letterpress!

header-gpccnewsActually, we suspect this is a nod to the newspaper printing of yore. Type nerds and designers – can anyone identify the typeface?

The Soapbox has a cabinet of metal type, as well as a small collection of wood type, available for use in its studio. You can find a list of our equipment on our Studio page. When we re-open later this spring, all equipment will be available for use to studio members (with new expanded membership options!) and through workshops. Stay tuned on equipment news and opening timeline by signing up for our mailing list!
