CARE OF HAMILTON
WOOD TYPE
A few simple precautions will preserve the
tigli polished printing surface of Hamilton
wood type for many years. There are some
fonts of Hamilton type over fifty years old
giving excellent service today.
To clean wood type, dampen a soft cloth
with benzine and merely wipe, never saturate.
DO NOT, under any circumstances, use patent
metal type cleaners on wood type.
Any good ink will give excellent results on
bond, book or newsprint stock. For printing
larger sizes on enamel stock, highest quality
inks must be used on presses having adequate
distribution systems. With these suggestions in
mind you can expect the finest printing results
from  otr Hamilton wtood type.
