FOREWORD
REALIZING THE ABSOLUTE NECESSITY for a
quick and ready reference, THE PITTSBURGH
TYPE FOUNDERS COMPANY, the largest
independent type manufacturing concern in the
country, takes pleasure in placing this catalogue
before the trade.
BY DOING SO, we believe we can assist you in the
selection of TYPE, SPACES, QUADS, BORDER,
RULES, LEADS, SLUGS and other printing
necessities, and in this way, help you to maintain
your high standard of efficiency or to increase the
samC.
IN THE MANUFACTURE of our products, only the
best raw material obtainable is used. It is alloyed
and treated by our own special process, which pro-
duces a metal surperior in wearing qualities,
solidity and sharpness of face, at the same time
allowing it to be cast at a high rate of speed, there-
by reducing the cost of manufacture and enabling
the consumer to receive the benefits.
THE PITTSBURGH TYPE FOUNDERS COMPANY
is in posession of patents which has placed it years
in advance of the other present day type man-
ufacturers and stamps it as the leading concern
of its kind.
AMPLE EVIDENCE OF THE QUALITY of our
products is shown by the voluntary testimonials
and the numerous repeat orders which have been
received.
