[At the present time we are not yet open for business. We're still setting up the typefoundry and the business structure.]

LemurType casts traditional metal type for letterpress printing to custom order, using historic typecasting machinery. We serve the letterpress printing community by keeping alive the craft of machine typefounding as it has been practiced for generations.

Making metal printing type unites art and technology as concisely as possible:

  • Without art, it isn't worth doing.
  • Without technology, it can't be done at all.
