Now there is no one making wooden letterpress types in India. All letterpress types foundries shut down a long ago, are doing other business, and Letterpress-Printers changed printing methods. They are using other printing technology, including offset printing, digital printing, etc. Unfortunately, mostly letterpress machines and types went to scrap-dealers and cremated.
So wooden letterpress types going scarce day by day. Now, these letterpress wood types are very scarce. These types are outstanding examples of art and model of a lost printing method called Letterpress Printing. We have removed some dust but did no full cleaning.
However, as you can see in the photos, the printing blocks are in good condition. Please observe all photos for the condition of types/characters. Please be sure that we will carefully pack all types/characters. So nothing will hurt the types/characters on transport.
