I am trying to design a classic looking book using initials for each chapter. Problem is that the chapters are facsimiles of old articles and cannot be changed. Some articles start with a number as the first character and some even start with quotation marks. All the good looking initial fonts I have seen so far do not include numbers or special characters, only upper case letters A-Z. Any ideas on how to design the page to work around this? Any good fonts to use as initials with a centaur font main text?
I apologize if this has been asked before – in which case I would ask for a link to the topic – but can you recommend typefaces which feature especially beautiful numerals? In this case I'm not interested in the letters so numerals-only typefaces would suffice. I have no restrictions on what beauty entices in this case. I'm just curious as to what's out there when it comes to numerals.
I have a problem with my font which has been stopped typing numbers! when you for examples write 1 it's type something else which other glyph I used that has not unicode ,, and the same problem form other numbers..
I have delete some unnecessarily glyphs before, so is it the problem? maybe the index has been changed? or it is a problem in the programming? anyone knows please?
There are many fonts (Myriad Pro, Helvetica co.) with upper case numbers,
who are not es high and thick as upeper case letters?
Can somebody tell me why?
Thanks a lot.
Could you help me to find this kind of typography? All the numbers are the same typography but each one I got it of diferent photos. I need to get these kind of numbers.
I wonder if you can help me with this;
I'm looking for a Japanese font with Japanese characters for numbers.
So, not using our own 1-9 'characters' but Japanese characters representing them.
Does such a thing exist?
Typography gift wrap paper
We asked ourselves: Why not use figures themselves to design wrapping paper for your Advent calendar?
No sooner said than done—now available: Typographic wrapping paper for your Advent Calender.
Your gifts don’t need tiny boxes, the wrapping paper offers more amount for taller and other shaped presents (for e.g. wine, apples, tangerines … ). Additional labeling isn’t required for your Advent calender.
Does anyone want to share an OT-substitution lookup conversation from base-10 to base-12 numerals, or perhaps help me out building the feature?
When kerning fonts with both Lining and Oldstyle proportional numerals what is the generally accepted form when it comes to kerning? Are all numbers kerned with every other glyph or is it best just to kern 0-9 with all punctuation and parenteses/brackets/braces only? Interested to hear thoughts. Thanks.
This is the early sketch of a logo were i'm trying to design the typography myself.
I'm happy with the '5' but i wonder if the '2' is of the same looks… what do you think ?
I have seen this font (digits and math symbols only?) in a number of places having to do with Japanese abacus and mental arithmetic practice.
If you google "flash anzan" (that is, a rather intense form of mental arithmetic practice), you will likely see this font used for the numbers.
I chose this for my sample because it contains all ten digits. The character that looks like a solidus is really the digit 1 (one). I believe that commas, decimal points, and symbols for basic arithmetic exist for this font, but as far as I know, it contains no characters beyond this.
I checked all the other sites but they never seem to notice the sharp corners of this font. At the end of the day I just realized that only humans can me here. I am not really interested in the letters of this font, just the numbers, all but 1 2 and 6 of course. Thanks
Anyone have any ideas? I ran this sample through a couple of other font ID sites with no matches yet.
The story behind this font, in case it helps in any way:
My boss had me redo a set of business cards for a number of new recruits, but he doesn't have the originals, so I'm tasked with recreating them from scratch. I scanned his card in and re-arranged the numbers so as to not reveal addresses/phone numbers.
The curious thing is that all the alphabetical letters were done in Century Gothic, but the numbers were done in this unknown font, and thus I only have the numbers as a sample.
The closest match I've found so far is Courier, but differences are still there.
Any insights are much appreciated!
Thank you in advance,
Just released a nice set of numbers, rescued from a 1838 Type Specimen Book issued by the Fonderie Clement, Bruxelles.
The 5 is my favorite, the upper part is unique.
I fell in love with it. And so I decided to digitize them all.
I hope you enjoy them! I made them with love.

I'm not completely sure, but I think that Clement was a Didot's apprentice, who then started his own foundry. If anyone has more info on that, I will appreciate it.
Hi everyone --
Looking to find some nice numbers to use for a list inside of a textbook - ideally i'm looking for numbers that are inside circles or squares or some other shape, - should go with thesans font, if possible - thanks in advance for any thoughts.
Any idea what font this might be?
I'm looking for something similar with a 2 that has a wavy base.
Hi! Would like to seek help in identifying the font in the attached image. The numbers are really cut in half as a design treatment, so that's all I can provide.
Appreciate your help! :) Thanks!
These are from a house/mailbox numbering service and an I.D. would be very much appreciated...
Well, technically number spacing. I'm working on a project that involves the design of a very post-modern elevator panel, which, as you can see, has been set in Gotham (with counters filled) on a diagonal grid. Within each cell, the idea is that the letters are right-aligned and intersect with the bottom edge:
The problem is the 1/4/7 column. Every other number has a relatively even, boxy shape that was easy to center. But my original plan was to align the right edge of 1, 4, 7 with each other vertically, then raise them to the same vertical height as the midpoint of the other numbers in their respective rows. My thinking is illustrated here:

Maybe I'm searching for the wrong things, but I'm struggling to find examples of (cursive) house number lettering, often placed by the front door of properties (back in the 50s/60s).
Anyone got good references for them?
hi, I'm doing a project with numbers. 1-14, each with a different type treatment. I'm noticing that sometimes when I find a great font that seems to suit the feeling I want, the numerals aren't living up to the greatness of the letters. I'd love some recos for typefaces whose numerals are truly inspired. Has anyone come across any awesome, interesting numbers lately? Look forward to some suggestions... thanks!
