What’s Been Happening?

A Short Break
I started the online store back in the first half of 2021 but little did I know that my father would take a bad fall a few weeks later. I had to stop casting for several months but now I am back in action. I’m looking forward to casting more fonts and ornaments.

A New Type Caster!
Pelican Type Foundry has now acquired a Type and Rule Caster! After finally getting it up and going I cast the Monotype Border 176 on it. It still needs some love and attention for 24pt and above, but the 18pt is just fine.
