Engraver straight script font

seb2's picture

Hi all,

I'm trying to find out what font this is. It look like Monogram KK but it isn't.

It might be a special engraver's font, but I thought I'd ask you guys.

I hope that you can solve this and I thank you in advance

Seb

Check out Harold's Fonts at Font Bros. web site. He has a monogram font that looks very much like that so it may match.

PS I found a picture of the set this letter is part of.

Hope it helps.

Thanks

Seb

You are correct that it is a special engraver's font. Some times goes under the name of "Upright Script." See for example:

Here is a character set, including lowercase:

The upper case is somewhat similar to the lower case of Harold Lohner's Vine MonogramsInline http://www.fontbros.com/families/vine-monograms. Harold notes that "The design was inspired by letters made for machine 'pantograph' engraving."

Hi Don, thanks for your input

It's that A that I have never seen before.
But anyway I notice now that the A has been hand (or pantograph) engraved, and that he has modified the "leg" endings compared to the letter set, for example.
I could re-design them but I'm not sure that the engraving machines would be able to read the design. I'll have to try it out.

You're welcome Sebastien. Good luck with your engraving project.
Don
