Just like the 1950s – Types inspired by sign painting
In the old days, before it was easy for designers and shop owners to quickly generate signs and price displays with the help of computers, printers, and plotters, many shop signs were hand-painted by sign writers. These artisans inspired generations of typeface designers to create similar display fonts. You can find these fonts today in stores large and small. If you are working in a store, or if you serve retail clients, you might appreciate our new selection of old-fashioned sign fonts.
