Type Tuesday - Acme Wood Type and Manufacturing Co.

Located in New York, New York, Acme Wood Type and Manufacturing Co. supplied their customers with all sorts of wood type and wood goods needs. 


The Acme Wood Type and Manufacturing Co. specimen catalog (pictured above) praises the characteristics of the company's wood of choice, rock maple, guaranteeing a product that is "practically warp proof," producing the cleanest, smoothest printing possible.

"Clear, clean-cut and finely finished, true artistic designing reaches its apex in Acme Wood Type." See for yourself!
