uni.jpgI'm not sure how this slipped past my attention, but Espn.com's Page 2's Paul Lukas' Uni-Watch (got that?) has an awesome article about the company that produces a lot of the lettering for the big uniform manufacturers; Liebe Athletic Lettering. They've been doing this stuff since 1923 and their past has some of the same endearing craft qualities as that of letterpress – most of the work is still done by hand. Though this falls between the cracks of design and typography, it's still definitely worth a look, especially the images of the old castings and the video tour.
