Equipment for sale!

Maura has been collecting letterpress equipment for more than 40 years now, and it’s resulted in a fabulous array! But also some things extra or redundant to our needs. This includes several perfectly functional pieces, some nearly-functional, a couple full fonts of type, various incomplete fonts, and many, many sorts that ideally would be married with their matching cases.

All type is 2$/lb, excepting sorts which are FREE! We just want sorts to be useful again.

Contact us by phone (206.721.0064) or email ( for any questions, clarifications, if you’d like to see more photos of an object, or if you’d like to visit and take a look in person!

  • An array of Cloister Oldstyle, mostly new! But a wildly scattered collection. 8, 10, and 12 pts, only lowercase. We’ve never had the heart to just melt this down, but we also can’t think how to use it without the complete fonts.
