Not my type font

Typewriter font anyone? Not my type font was created with a real typewriter. To be specific it was on Oliver courier typewriter that I bought at an antique market.

I originally bought it, to take a picture of it. The typewriter that is—for one of my image packs.

It seemed to make sense to create a typeface from it—so I did. It's one of the most detailed typewriter fonts you can find here on the Creative Market. With 3 alternatives for each character.

If you want your design to have that nostalgic typewriter effect this is perfect. It's old-fashioned and retro with just a hint of grunge. With the 3 different versions (see contextual alternatives below) you can make it look like a real impact typewriter.

Contextual Alternatives

I created 3 versions of every letter and number that get progressively bolder. If you enable contextual alternatives in your design application the letters will change automatically as you type.

The aim was to make it look more random, like a real typewriter. You can learn more about contextual alternatives https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/special-characters.html

Typewriter with lots of detail

I went to great trouble to keep the detail from my original scans. I've yet to see another typewriter font that has the same amount of detail as this one.

The font includes:

  • One style
  • Uppercase & Lowercase letters with three Alternatives
  • Numbers with three alternatives
  • Basic punctuation & Symbols
  • Font format is .OTF

If you need any help, or have questions just ask.
