What we do

Effra Press & Typefoundry…

… casts and sells new letterpress type from 5pt to 72pt.
… sets type for customers wishing to print their own material.
… casts and sells leads and rules from 1pt to 12pt.
… cuts typographic punches.

In the future, we plan to …

… cast from historic matrices on restored pivotal casters.
… make new wood type from new and existing designs.
… cut new typefaces and cast them as metal type.
… make handmade paper.

We don’t offer a printing service; if that’s what you’re after, we would heartily recommend contacting Phil at Hand & Eye Letterpress.
