On a good day the Good Lord has given us to be able to draw, paint, cut blocks, set type, or do pretty much whatever we put our hands to. On a not-so-good day (or a bad one), we find something else to do.

In nine-hundred-eighteen-thousandths of one inch we trust

0.918—that’s “type high,” the height of the lead letters that we use to set type. This one number is the foundation of everything we love and do.

Most of our doings are done for ourselves. We find ideas in our heads and then find a way to put them onto paper we can hold with our hands. That being said, we are known to take on the odd job printing to keep the heat on.
