UPrinting as a Printing Partner for TypeCon 2010: Babel
The Society of Typographic Aficionados is an international not-for-profit organization formed in 1998 by typophile Bob Colby. It is dedicated to increasing public awareness and appreciation of the art and history of typography, as well as its function in creating beautiful and successful communications. SOTA is committed to sponsoring relevant topics in pursuit of these goals. The annual TypeCon plays a major role in accomplishing this aim.
About TypeCon 2010: Babel
