P22 Blox is a set of modular letterpress printing blocks made from space age material—plastic! It allows for a wide variety of lettering, experimental letterforms and pattern making, giving printers an entirely new medium to inspire modern presswork.


P22 Blox are injection molded plastic printing blocks for letterpress printers and educators. Based on Bauhaus principles of basic shapes, these simple forms can be assembled to make any letters of the alphabet. These Blox make for great team design and printing exercises in the classroom and are a great way to introduce letterpress printing on any level of printing press. The endless possibilities of how Blox can be assembled make for great creative thinking workshops. Unlike traditional printing materials such as wood and metal, these plastic Blox remove the intimidation factor of setting type by hand. Plus their light-weight square shapes are just easy and fun to work with.

Features:

  • P22 Blox are 72 point (6-line or 1") square
  • There are positive and negative shapes for overlay options.
  • P22 Blox contains enough variants to form any letters, numbers or abstract patterns.
  • Blox features tight edges so the solids (both positive and negative sets) can be locked up as continuous artwork,as is the intention of wood type ’streamer’ fonts.
  • Standard 6-line furniture and spacing can be used for additional lockup.
  • Each block is 1" × 1" × .918" with a tolerance of +/- .003 inch.
  • The Blox are injection molded in Upstate New York using Thermo Plastic Elastomer (TPE).
