Appleton Coated has become an official sponsor of Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum.
In celebration, Hamilton Wood Type will create a series of specimen sheets highlighting classic typefaces, letterpress printing, and Utopia coated and Curious Collection papers.
Located in Two Rivers, Wisconsin, the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum is the only museum dedicated to the preservation, study, production and printing of wood type. With 1.5 million pieces of wood type and more than 1,000 styles and sizes of patterns, Hamilton’s collection is one of the premier wood type collections in the world.
In addition to wood type, the museum is home to an array of advertising cuts from the 1930s through the 1970s, and all of the equipment necessary to make wood type and print with it, as well as equipment used in the production of hot metal type, tools of the craft and rare type specimen catalogs.
Appleton Coated’s sponsorship supports the museum’s type specimen sheet archiving program and documentation of its type collection. As part of this partnership, Appleton Coated also will be providing Utopia coated papers and Curious Collection papers for selected projects and events.
