Graphic Supplies for
Artistic Design

We are an independent type foundry and graphic supplier set forth on a journey to revive the love for artistic design amidst today’s technology laden world.

Our efforts have sprung from our passion for the prudent yet elegant aesthetic of times past like ephemera packaging and lettering. We firmly believe that the heritage of old design masters can truly enrich our contemporary lives as the 21st century designer has plenty to learn from them: remarkable dedication, persistence, attention to detail, just to name a few.


Tobias was working as an independent lettering artist for several years. His style is mainly influenced by his passion to graphic design and lettering from the early 20th century. During client work he noticed that existing typefaces with an authentic vintage look and a high quality standard were super rare.

Thus eventually he decided to create the first typeface himself which received great feedback among colleagues and clients. From then on a new idea was born. Together with Nicolas he founded Heritage Type Co. with the mission to create extraordinary vintage sets that would help any designer to achieve incredible results in every project.
