Printed TypeMates Specimen

6 years in the biz! That’s why we’re releasing a printed celebration of our work: Type Catalogue #1
76 pages and 28 faces embossed and printed with fancy colours on rough paper, with thread binding and lots of extras.

The printed specimen

Our printed specimen shows off all our retail typefaces in specially designed double page spreads. With carefully selected comparisons of our text monsters, it’s designed and imagined by virtuoso Paul Eslage over the last three years (true story). But it’s not just about our retail fonts — we also give insights into some of our latest custom projects.

The Type Catalogue was printed 100% climate neutrally by Reset St. Pauli on 320 g/m² Burano Nero and 120 g/m² Pergraphica Classic Rough papers. Using Offset printed Black plus special spot colours Pantone Blue 072 U and Pantone Silver 877 U and a fine thread-stitched binding.

After releasing 28 retail typefaces and creating more than 50 custom and bespoke fonts over the last 6 years, we’re super excited to give them a tactile, analogue treatment in the TypeMates Catalogue #1!

To be shipped through our checkout, the printed specimen is bundled with two styles of Halvar, the body face of this booklet.

The fonts

Halvar is a pragmatic grotesk with the raw charm of an engineer and bulky proportions and constructed forms. A type system ready to explore, Halvar has 81 styles, wide to condensed, hairline to black, roman to oblique and then to superslanted.

The shipping

Once you have licenced the fonts in the bundle, a TypeMate will run to the post office to ship the specimen to your billing address.

For €29 the pack includes licences, tax, free shipping and—of course—the printed object of desire. You only need to purchase a license for a single Desktop User: every order will receive a single copy of the specimen.

Shipping outside Germany unfortunately takes a little longer and can take up to 4 weeks before the specimen reaches you. Anticipation is the best joy!
