ADVANTAGES OF HAMILTON WOOD TYPE
Hamilton wood tpe provides the perfect printing sur-
face which takes ink readily and releases it cleanly. There
i- no chemical reaction between wood and ink to affect deli-
cate colors.
Through meticulous selection and preparation of wood.
even the largest characters of Hamilton type are free from
pinholes and objectiolable surface imperfections. And the
true. flat surface of wood type prints with a minimum of
makeready.
Because Hamilton wood type is designed by craftsmen
who are specialists in type design, it is more legible than
hand lettering. Character for character, wood type repro-
duces cleanly and crisply and is more economical than the
Combined costs of hand-lettering art and engraving.
