Typophile merchandise?

Chris Dean's picture

Thoughts for Typophile merchandise? Pitch in if you like. Just a fun idea sparked from another thread. You never know, we may end up with cool matching jackets. Like a bad-ass gang, only with fonts instead of ghetto-weapons (mine is “length of chain.”)

So far, someone has mentioned “letter sweater.”

Following that logic, I would opt for varsity jackets (we can deal with embroidery later).

And I’m not joking. Kickstarter could easily help produce an initial run.

You could also have print on demand Typophile merchandise. Somebody here must have dabbled with 3D software.

I think the hidden heart cup could work with type forms.

I used Shapeways for Christmas shopping this year, had to order well in advance but was very pleased with the items I bought.

@All: What are the most common drawing tools when people draw letters by hand. The hand sketching process of font creation, prior to digitization? Include paper.

Pads
Pencils

Ruling pens and compasses, and French curves (oo-la-la)…

Custom French curves could be nice as art objects.
