D. Stempel AG was a German metal type foundry, set up in 1895 by David Stempel and based in Frankfurt-am-Main. Under the leadership of Walter Cunz the library acquired contributions from many outstanding type designers, including Rudolf Koch, Martin Wilke, and Hermann Zapf, and achieved international status.

In 1900 Stempel gained the exclusive right to manufacture matrices for Linotype typesetters, and Linotype eventually acquired a majority interest. In 1985 Stempel was fully absorbed into Linotype GmbH.
