Item details

This listing is for one-quarter (1/4) pound of SMALL type. Each piece ranges in size from about 6 to 12 points (approximately 1/16 inch to 3/16 inch).

We cannot accept returns of type, so please read this description very carefully. PLEASE NOTE THE VERY SMALL SIZE OF EACH INDIVIDUAL PIECE OF TYPE.

You'll receive one small plastic bag of type that weighs 4 or more ounces. The last photo shows the approximate number of pieces you can expect to receive.

Each bag may include a range of lower case and upper case letters, maybe some numbers, some punctuation and probably a pretty good variety of type faces (serif, sans serif, and script). I take a scoop out of a bucket of mixed type, so each scoop will differ from the last one. This type was saved from the scrapyard, so I'd love to see it go to a good home!

This is a COMPLETELY RANDOM assortment of type, so it is NOT possible to request specific letters, numbers, sizes or typefaces. If you are looking for a specific set of letters, let me know what you are interested in and I'll see if I have it and can give you an estimate of cost.

Please note that some letters may have some damage due to their many decades of service in a printer's shop.
