Chromosome

ChromosomeIt hit me one day that the ’60s-vintage labelmaker I found in the back of a drawer might make an interesting display face. I began playing around—squeezing out letters at various pressures, scanning the results, going over the scans in a vector-graphics app. Looked pretty good. To my chagrin, however, I soon after got a glimpse of someone else’s label-tape font. Though modeled after a more modern device, its rocketing popularity prompted me to set Chromosome aside for a year or so. Finally finished it up in late-1995. The full release has light and heavy weights, regular and reversed styles. US$39.

RANDOM SIGHTING:
Marydale

KIND WORDS:

“I must say [Texas Hero] is one of the most beautiful fonts I’ve ever seen.”
—J.C., Mount Holly NC

“I'm always on the lookout for handwriting fonts that look more like handwriting than fonts. I've always relied on Texas Hero, Schooner Script, and Emily Austin and was very happy to see Lamar Pen and American Scribe.”
—A.L., Los Angeles CA

“There's a fair number of what I call 'scrawl' faces out there. [Treefrog] is one of the very few I really like.”
—P.M., Palatine IL

“These are fantastic fonts, and I appreciate that your company offers a trial download (minus the "e") so I could sell these fonts to my client.
—L.A., Woodinville WA

“The Lamar Pen font is divine. We are using it on a novel set in the eighteenth century, and the author is ecstatic.”
—J.H., London, England

“Oh! I'm in loooove with [Lamar Pen]! It's lovely, it's organic, it's real, it's got history & tradition. My designs are singing!”
—C.C., Palo Alto CA

“You have maintained a level of quality in the design of your various fonts that rivals the best foundries.”
—G.V., Salem OR
