Johnstemp – A stamp font family based on Linotype Tagesstempel
Years ago, one of our Germany typeface designers created a symbol font family called Linotype Tagesstempel™. A “Tagesstempel” is one of those bureaucratic necessities, which you can manually set the date and time, and then stamp these onto documents. The character sets of the four Linotype Tagesstempel fonts included 72 glyphs each. The glyphs were primarially several alternate versions of each number, but pre-formed abbreviations for each month of the year (in German) were also a key element. Best of all, the family’s four weights helped users create graphics that simulated various degrees of inking; when a stamp is quickly placed on paper, some elements might be visibly quite darker than others. This effect was easy to mimic with the Linotype Tagesstempel family.
Johnstemp includes five fonts, each with a broad character set including alternate letterforms. Unlike the pre-formed word images of Linotype Tagesstempel, Johnstemp includes both upper and lowercase letters, as well as Central and Eastern European diacritics. Now, there is virtually no limit to the amount of text you can set.
The uses for this family are not limited to creating documents with an “official” look, however. Set in large point sizes, Johnstemp is perfect for angsty magazine headlines, movie posters, and music graphics. Use the many alternates for each letter together to create a more unique, random-style design!
