About

Wood Type Customs is part of Delia and Tudor’s Petrescu Press initiative. As architectural restorers, passionate about letterpress printing, we want to preserve the history and craft of printing. This company works to recreate the tools needed in the printing process, facilitating the access for graphic designers and fine arts printers, to these necessary means.

Our ultimate goal is to contribute to revive the art of letterpress printing by finding beauty in traditional art, and understand that it is our business as artists, since we desire to produce works of art, to supply the lack of tradition by cultivating in ourselves the sense of beauty.
