More about TYPA centre
TYPA is a printing and paper arts centre established in the spring of 2010 as a private museum to save the last surviving letterpress machines and equipment salvaged from printing shops from destruction. We are the only memory institution in the region – in Finland and the Baltics – specialising in printing and paper arts.
Since its establishment, TYPA has operated as a working museum and place of interest, which, in addition to traditional maintenance and exhibition of collections, conducts various printing workshops and hosts longer courses for students and professionals.
TYPA Centre presents a multitude of activities; TYPA Stationery brand produces unique notebooks, albums, and bookcases made of recycled materials. Our centuries-old equipment is in perfect working order and available for printing custom-order works as well as works produced by printmakers. And of course we welcome visitors who are interested in learning about the secrets of papermaking, the history of printing, and letterpress equipment and other exciting machinery that is used in one way or another in the art of papermaking or book manufacturing.
In 2020 we were hounoured with ILUCIDARE special award for our innovative solution in preserving cultural heritage.
