Shop For Sale (Tons of Type, Borders, Cuts)

**Sale Pending** Up for sale is a small print shop run by a gentleman that had been printing for several decades before passing away last year. As his health deteriorated, the items didn’t get much use so they sat collecting dust and will need a good cleaning, but are otherwise in great condition. I’m attempting to help sell everything, but there’s A LOT of stuff here: type, leading, borders, cuts, presses, furniture and reglet cabinets, a slug cutter, typecases and much much more. All the typecases shown are FULL of type, and I have a few spare empty cases as well. There’s honestly too much for me to list everything that’s included, but if you’re looking to open a shop and start printing, this is a great purchase. If you’re looking to add type to your collection or buy and resell, this could be a great purchase as well. I’ll do my best to answer any specific questions in a timely manner.
