“Tactile typography is being revived through the use of 3D printing technology.”


In today’s digital age, it seems like everything has become virtual. From communication to design, technology has taken over and left behind the tactile and interactive experiences that once defined our lives. But artist and designer Will Mower has a different idea. He wants to bring back the physicality of typography with his revolutionary 3D printed Blockface Kit.

Working in collaboration with the Open Press Project, Mower has created a modular stamp set that combines the best of both worlds – 3D printing and laser-cutting technologies. The Blockface Kit allows graphic designers and enthusiasts to create their own stamps, bringing back the joy of hands-on creation.

The kit comes with a magnetic case, black and red ink pads, and a comprehensive manual that teaches users how to create six different styles: Bauhaus, lowercase, slab serif, Grotesque, Standard, and curved. Whether you’re a fan of traditional type or a lover of modern design, this kit has something for everyone.

As a testament to its popularity, the Blockface Kit is currently in its final days on Kickstarter. Backers have the opportunity to witness a demonstration video and secure their very own kit. If you’re someone who longs for the old days of type and wants to bring that experience back into your life, then head on over to the Kickstarter page right here and back the project. You won’t want to miss out on this amazing opportunity.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to rediscover the joy of typography and embrace the tactile and interactive world that the Blockface Kit has to offer.
