A Directory of Suppliers
Or, Where Can I Find...
Launching the Composing Room Stores (our online letterpress supplies shop) has meant that many of the emails we now get are enquiries about things we can't supply. And while there's not always an easy answer, we think most of you will find what you're after here in our directory of specialist letterpress suppliers.

These suppliers are recommended either because we use them ourselves, because our friends recommend them or, in some cases, because there's no alternative. We do not carry advertising. However, if you think your company or someone else's should be on the list, we're happy to receive suggestions.
