Jenny’s retired type comes from a 3rd generation printer, started in 1905, that specialized in printing carnival, rodeo, and circus posters. Most wood type is created using Hard Maple that absorbs the black ink used in printing. We were lucky to get our hands on type that had been used to print different colors.
A labor of love (but so worth it!) Jenny creates each piece by laying type on the board, gluing it down, then polishing the finished work. Jenny’s letterpress art can be customized with special names and dates, please contact us directly for more details.
