New font! Fulton Sign And Price Markers

Last Fall, I created my first new font in a couple years. You see, this is how it goes; I’m ready to retire, hang up my font-making cap forever — then a new font comes out. It usually happens in one day!

At any rate, I introduce: Fulton Sign And Price Markers, my third rubber stamp font.

Here are a few shots showing the case of stamps themselves and some actual stamping. Of course, the trick when making a font like this is to stamp each character several times, then choose the ones that work best.

The font includes two weights, regular and light, and all the symbols that came with it, like the nifty Victorian-looking Each and Per.

As always, this font is free. Go ahead and download it, and if you use it, let me know!

    I have this set. Is there anything you can tell me about it.

      Hi Louise,

      Lucky you to have this fine set! The only thing I can tell you is that the Fulton Company made hundreds of these sets over the years. Before computers or rub-down type, it was an easy way for shopkeepers who couldn’t afford to hire a sign writer to make neat and clear (one hopes) signage for their shops.

      I’ve made another of their sets into a font, which you can see here.

      Happy stamping!

  • Used these on my blog, love them, thanks for making them (you’re credited at the bottom of the page where it says ‘powered by blogger’)
