Designed by Missy Meyer, Candlepin is a monograms and hand show font style released by Missy Meyer.

Monograms are cool, but often they can be a bit too official. Too fancy. Dare I say it? A bit stuffy. I wanted to create a monogram font style that was a little lighter-hearted and enjoyable, and Candlepin was the result!

The typeface file consists of two sets of uppercase: larger (uppercase A-Z) and smaller sized (lowercase a-z), in addition to two sets of numbers: larger (0-9) and smaller (shift + 0-9). There are also 20 frame and graphic alternatives mapped to every single other piece of puncutation I might discover on the keyboard!

Creating a monogram is as easy as: [aBc—— Just type the punctuation for the frame you desire, then three letters in lowercase, uppercase, and lowercase. Boom, you have a cool and funky monogram, excellent for 1,001 home uses!

( And never ever fear—— I've included a PDF guide with a chart that reveals you every frame and graphic choice, and which punctuation characters to enter to get them!)


Monograms aside, Candlepin also acts as two complete usable monospace alphabets. Require your letters to stack nicely vertically, but you're bored with those typewriter-style font styles? Desire a little enjoyable in your spreadsheets? Making an enjoyable word-search puzzle? Candlepin can do it all.:)


Your Candlepin download consists of:
- 26 big letters, 26 small letters, 10 large numbers, 10 small numbers
- A large ampersand (mapped to the comma) and a duration (mapped to the period)
- 18 complete monogram frames, plus 2 left- and right-side graphics
- Fully PUA-encoded for simple character map/ font book/ glyphs access
