We are pleased to announce that we are now an official distributor of the lovely Hold Fast Foundry collection.

Hold Fast Foundry hails from Athens, GA and is the creation of Mattox Shuler. What began as a small interest in exploring the creation of a typeface quickly developed into a full on passion to build well-crafted type for designers to enjoy. The foundry has currently been focusing on display faces inspired from past eras.

Industry

Forged from geometric and technical styles, Industry stands sturdy and strong. The sans serif family includes seven weights with corresponding italics. The typeface is meant to be a workhorse that can span from a refined vintage feel to an industrial futuristic vibe. Use it for headlines, display, and logotype, or take it for a spin with short-form body copy. Its high x-height and mechanical nature help retain legibility at smaller sizes.

Industry Inc

Industry Inc is a collection of type based on the bold uppercase style of the Industry family. The typeface comprises numerous stand-alone styles along with a layered type system. Think of it as a toolbox equipping designers with extensive typographic options and combinations. What will you make?

Abolition

Abolition is a condensed sans that’s got a knack for propaganda posters and industrial buildings. It’s a highly modified sans-serif version of the Bourbon typeface with some new surprises.

The ban on serifs is at hand! Bourbon and Gin thought they could get away with their spirited serifs, but Prohibition has arrived and cut them off. Packed with some new surprises, this vintage sans typeface takes queues from classic war and workforce posters to industrial factories.

Gin

Like a brother to the Bourbon family, Gin is distilled from similar letterforms, but condensed less. This vintage display typeface was inspired by the likes of old serifs and classic bottles of whiskey and gin.

Bourbon

Like a brother to Gin, Bourbon is a condensed display typeface inspired by the likes of whiskey bottles and vintage serifs. It enjoys long walks with subtle, distressed textures or a nice, good-ole script. Bourbon Rough works great in larger sizes and with anti-aliasing set to “Smooth.”
