Acquiring type


Just starting out and was wondering if anyone knew where I could get hold of @ characters in lead type (preferably 10-12pt).

Can someone advise of sellers (preferably in UK) that supply wooden type sets (not just individual characters).

Hi cole007,

I think a number of metal foundries already have packs of the ‘@’ symbols for sale. Try contacting MH Type, Swamp Press and Skyline.

Swamp Press


In the UK Alembic press cast type and I have bought @ signs from them. You will also find them for sale on eBay, which is where you will also find complete fonts of wood type, I don’t know of anyone producing or selling wood type commercially in the uk so if you find someone please share…

Thanks for the links and resources guys!
