Regular price $23.99

Letterpress printing, nearly dead for decades, is enjoying a surprising renaissance today. Thousands of print shops are springing up around the world. In this digital age, designers and print buyers alike are rediscovering the beauty of this tactile medium.

Simply set upside down reading left to right, as letterpress type is set, in Berthold Akzidenz-Grotesk® Bold, often referred to as the original sans. Released in 1896, its first life was in lead. The typeface originated from Royal Grotesk light by royal type-cutter Ferdinand Theinhardt. In the 1950s Günter Gerhard Lange enlarged the family under the direction of Günter Gerhard Lange.

Silkscreened in white on a black 4.2 oz. 100% ring-spun cotton unisex jersey.
