ABOUT







Startype [Brian Horsfall]

British Letterpress writes: Startype based in Birstall, West Yorkshire used Monotype machines to cast type and advertised that they were contractors to HM Government and Overseas Governments. The casting machines were modified to work at higher temperatures with a different mix of type metal meaning that they could produce type suitable for hot foil work on a composition caster. The firm closed in the late 1980s. Some machines and the expertise continue with Brian Horsfall who casts type under the name Supertype.
