C.C. Stern Type Foundry is often asked where metal type can be purchased. We do not plan to sell metal type for commercial purposes. However, we are happy to report that there remains a small, but active, market for metal type. This list (no doubt incomplete) is provided as a convenience* to those interested in contacting commercial sellers. If you know about other commercial metal type foundries or would like to request we add or remove a seller from this list, please email us.
