PlymouthPress Font


PlymouthPress is a display typeface that uses the OpenType-SVG image format, a new and cutting-edge font technology. Each glyph has been digitized directly from prints made using our antique letterpress facilities.

Since the font uses bitmap images to render each glyph, the detailed textures present in the original prints have been retained, in a way that is not possible with traditional vector-based fonts. The font uses OpenType scripting to automatically cycle through a range of alternate glyphs for each character, giving a ‘random’ appearance as you type. Alternates can also be chosen manually in supported applications.

PlymouthPress font is intended for display purposes only, and is not suitable for body text. It exudes character, creativity, and works best when used to make bold, evocative statements.
