Glyph, established in beautiful historic Havre de Grace, Maryland in the spring of 2012, had it’s genesis in Creative Director Don Starr’s acquisition of two traditional letterpresses and 48 + cases of metal type. Using similar business models of makers-retailers such as Yee-Haw Industries and Hatch Show Print, Glyph aspires to use the traditional letterpress process in creating contemporary graphic design solutions as well as provides an educational environment to the public, sharing the historic process through hands-on workshops.
Additionally, workshops in traditional screen-printing, calligraphy, hand lettering, papermaking—as well as current graphic design software—are offered, connecting traditional and digital methods of graphic design. Glyph also offers paid internship opportunities to local students—both young and old—providing a stronger link between the academic studios to the professional working environment
