Typeface that looks good both highly letter-spaced and kerned for packaging

Hope you're well.

Does anyone know of a typeface that looks good with alot of letterspacing (space between letters) and kerning (decreased space between letters)? And that also looks good on packaging.

Thanks so much!

Are you looking for a serif or sans typeface? What kind of product do you have to package?

Serif: Nicholas/Goodchild
Sans: Sense

Alternatively, you might mix a tightly-fitted proportionally spaced display “typewriter” style with a monowidth typewriter font for the open look. There is a good list of them at FontShop, IIRC.

Trusty old Helvetica, especially in the lighter weights, can quite attractive if lovingly spaced by a discerning eye...

Think a sans serif. It's for a Call For Entries Poster with a sports theme.
