Hey folks, it occurred to me that if a stencil font on my system doesn’t have “stencil” as part of the name I would not know how to find it. For any other newbies like me, you want a stencil font if you are cutting out letters, so the insides don’t drop out. (You could always build a bridge to the inside but that can mess with the look.)
So I just went into my font listing (on the Mac it’s in Font Book) and stepped through every one of them looking for letters that are not closed in the A’s, B’s, O’s, etc. I found a number of them that I would not have found otherwise, that will give me a few more choices. Here’s my list:
Blimpo Reg (except for the “o”)
I guess you could get this kind of information if you have a font manager like Suitcase Fusion but at $120 it’s a bit pricey for me.
To be honest none of these fonts gets me excited. What is your favorite stencil font?
