Volume 12 - 9.2.20
Some of my favorite typewriter fonts that are great for all sorts of projects!
Let's talk typewriters. I love the real thing, I love the digital version! They add such a cool vintage vibe to almost anything. I really enjoy using them on stamp designs, for secondary phrases, and to add a little bookishness to an otherwise normal piece. Here are four of my absolute favorite typewriter fonts to try!
No. 1 F25 Executive
I used this font when I did a book reading project for The Friends of Fort Point Channel, and I absolutely love how it turned out! This font is also free for personal AND commercial use, so it is really a great choice for budget projects. It's substantial and worn without being garishly typewriter.
No. 2 IBM Selectric Light
This is such a cute little font, and comes in an italic version, too! I love the exaggerated serifs on the i, j, and l, and how the v, w, and z are curved. The capitals are a great option for a more traditional typewriter font, but to be honest, I like how the upper and lowercase letters combine.
No. 3 Oceanside Typewriter
Oceanside is a much thicker, rougher typewriter font, but the italic characters add some quirk to subtitles or vintage ephemera-inspired pieces. I can totally see this as the font on an antique receipt, product stamp, or luggage tag!
No. 4 Splendid 66
I first heard about Splendid 66 from Jordan Clark, an extremely talented artist & stationery designer. She uses it as one of her primary fonts, and for good reason--her whimsical designs are perfectly paired with this delicate and textured font. If you prefer a heavier look, this one comes in a variety of weights, too!
