Looking for an elegant stencil font

eclectic's picture

Hello,

I'm looking for an elegant stencil font for a logo. I want a stencil font because I like the industrial/handmade feeling it conveys, but at the same time, I don't want it to be too cold. It should be somewhat *a bit* warm and elegant. Yeah, I know that's pretty much opposites. I know I could design it myself, but I've never designed fonts and I'm afraid it would look cheap compared to professional type designers' fonts. If a font like that exists somewhere, I am willing to try it !

Thank you very much for your suggestions.

Wow, I wasn't expecting so much answers. Thank you !
(I really like Pochoir and I found Minotype on another thread. Gorgeous!)

Le Corbusier is quite nice too.

Pochoir is essentially Dolly Stencil. Nice work, but I wish he'd given Underware credit.

(As this has been brought up again, I thought maybe I should add to it, as well. :)

le corbusier is lovely, but cargo in all caps is just gorgeous. there's a poster hanging in zurich with cargo all caps saying "AL PACINO" (its for a cinema reprise of his films), and it works great.

You'd have to tweak the e and o, but most of the characters already stencil-like disconnections. And it's gorgeous!

It's late - the dogs don't want me to sleep - so I started once again exploring the internet. In tonight's travel's I found

http://hans.presto.tripod.com/fonts/stencil2.html

and thought of this thread - so I decided to revive it. Though this is not my choice for "elegant" stencil fonts -- I had to share because it was a nice assortment and you can't beat "free."

Personal choice for an "elegant stencil" would be Glaser Stencil - however, seeing that this thread originated in June of 2006, I think it would be safe to assume that eclectic's search is over...

BTW - does elegant and stencil actual go together?

P.S. Patty, I see you are also a fan of Glaser. My all time favorite stencil - and I try to sneak it in on jobs is House Industries Flyerfont-Reject... it's just, well, adorable!
