Alphabet and Number Letterpress Printing Block Sets

Submitted by on December 12, 2015 – 5:12 pm

I have started collecting and photographing vintage letterpress printing blocks 5 years ago. Since then I used them to create numerous images of single words, phrases, questions, word abstracts, web banners, icons, and greeting cards. Please check the typography and holiday greetings galleries in my stock photography portfolio.

Some of my wood and metal fonts are also available as set of symbols isolated on white. These pictures are composites of multiple images where each symbol is shot separately. They can be used to create any flat text or numbers.

The files for alphabet and number sets are much larger than other pictures. I am offering them at the same price as other royalty free images, but only in large sizes and the price for the original size picture is higher.

New additions include this set of numbers in outlined wood type printing blocks stained be red ink:

And, here is an example how these numbers can be used to create a New year greeting card:

2016 year in outlined letterpress wood type blocks stained by red ink – New Year greeting card

If I shoot entire words, logos or phrases I often use a different style – shooting at certain angle to show sides of printing blocks which gives more 3-dimensional effect like in this New Year concept image:
