Who We Are

Founded in 2012, Type Twenty Seven is a graphic design and letterpress studio in Cleveland, Ohio. Located in the heart of Midtown on E.30th, the studio mixes modern technology with lead type and vintage printing presses. Whether it’s a fully integrated campaign, a website or a large letterpress poster, we collaborate with each client to deliver effective results.


In 1863, “The Dixie Primer, For The Little Folks” included a 27th letter in the alphabet—an ampersand. Our logo reflects this by merging modern design with the process of letterpress printing (illustrated in the reversed 7). When the two combine, an ampersand emerges.
