Our Owner

Bestype is a family-owned-and-operated business. John Lam is the current owner and spent summers and weekends interning for his parents. Originally, Bestype was a graphics service bureau specializing in desktop publishing, film color separation, typography, and other various printing methods.

After John took over, he transformed Bestype into the go-to New York printing solutions and services provider with access to the latest and best printing services and technologies.

Our History

Our first print shop was opened in Chinatown by John’s father in 1978, who helped graphic artists, students, and others with their graphic printing needs. In the 1980s, we were able to work with artist Barbara Kruger, who created her iconic Futura italics types.

In the 2000s, we worked with street artists like Dash Snow and helped Zac Posen print his first lookbooks. We were even featured in the George Clooney film, Michael Clayton. Since then, we have worked with numerous brands, including Uniqlo, Meetup, Google, Facebook, and more.

Today, we continue to work with artists, businesses, and designers to help them achieve their goals by offering the best printing services in NYC. Contact us today at 212-966-6886 to request a quote for your print project and discover how we can help you!
