  • Last Hamilton Hurrah

    On December 29th, 2012 the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum hosted an open house with printing, type cutting demonstrations, and a celebration of the legacy of the Hamilton Manufacturing Company.

    Thank you to everyone who could join us for our last open day in the museum's original location. We have a lot of work ahead of us with packing one of the premier wood type collections in the world at over 1.5 million pieces of wood type, but the event instilled even more hope in our hearts. The support from both around the world and here locally reminded us that we have a big wood type family. For those of you who couldn't make it please enjoy the wonderful photographs taken by Jeff Dawson of the local Lester Public Library. To see more please visit the flickr set. Please join us when we celebrate our reopening in our new Two Rivers location, which is yet to be announced.

  • Networking at Night

    Last night at the museum we hosted a Two Rivers Business Association 'Networking at Night' program. Many owners and employees from local businesses came to pull prints, learn about Hamilton's history, and see why so many people travel so far to visit our collection. It was a lively and fun evening. Our friend, Jeff Dawson, from the local Lester Public Library, took some wonderful photos of the event that you can see after the jump. Please make sure to check out more photos here on their flickr site.

  • Inaugural post

    There are a lot of exciting things happening at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum lately. To help everyone keep up with the exciting artists, designers, and groups that come to the museum we will be keeping this blog. We will update it with exciting finds that we uncover as we catalog the collection, unveil new partnerships, and print great posters. All of the staff, Jim Moran, Stephanie Carpenter, and Bill Moran will constantly post photos and information about events at the museum. There will also be guest blog posts that will expand our content and allow our friends to see what else is going on in the wood type and letterpress world.

    Please leave comments. Everyone who comes to the museum or is still planning their trip has wonderful insights and stories. We would love to hear what you have to say.
