New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
This is a request for a font, either existing (best—saves effort) or new (great project for a typophile). It’s non-commercial, so payment can only be in the form of acknowledgement.
I’m part of a group that hosts port tastings — for ourselves, not as a business. Port bottles used to be labelled with a physical stencil (you can see where this is going) through which white paint was sprayed or painted. Examples of such bottles: 1 2 3 (with apologies for the focus problem in the second and third pictures).
At a tasting it is important that people don’t get confused. There must always be a clear answer to the question What is in this glass?. For which purposes there is PostScript program (author: yours truly) that makes all the paperwork required to organise a large tasting.
The titles in the centre of the circles should be a font which really should be called
VintagePortStencil. Characters needed are:
Is there such a typeface already? Does anybody have the time energy enthusiasm to make one? Am I asking in the right place? Does this forum have a rule banning such requests?
FYI, I have started (a currently content-free) discussion on the same subject at www.ThePortForum.com/viewtopic.php?t=4105.
Thank you very much.
