The Washington House Museum was selected by the US Postal Service as the site of the First Day Of Sale for its new ice cream-themed stamps. As the historic home of the ice cream sundae, the Washington House became its own post office for a day on June 30, 2016, issuing stamp memorabilia, hosting a presentation by the US Postal Service, canceling stamped mail and of course, serving ice cream sundaes.

The Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum staff is honored to partner with New York-based graphic designer Louise Fili on her first font release project. The new font, “Mardell,” is named for Hamilton retiree and wood type cutter Mardell Doubek. Louise visited the museum for an interview on March 17, 2016. It was fun night of talking process, wood type, and design. You can purchase the digital font here: https://www.p22.com/family-Mardell
This is the fourth font to be cut for the museum as part of the Wood Type Legacy Project. The project enlists internationally known designers to create original designs, naming the fonts after Hamilton Manufacturing employees who have helped preserve and carry on the rare craft of making wood type. Louise joins Matthew Carter, Erik Spiekermann and Nick Sherman who have all designed fonts for this project.
