FHA Sign DeVinne is a display screen serif typeface household. This typeface has 5 styles and was published by Fontry West.

Around the end of the 19th century, the print typeface De Vinne was launched and ended up being popular. However, this is not that story…….


Once, long earlier, there were no large format digital printers or vinyl cutters. Indications, posters, banners etc., were screen printed, when it comes to mass production, or hand lettered. Indication painting was a hard ability to master. Some boys apprenticed to more knowledgeable indication painters to discover the craft. Others got some paint and brushes, possibly a how-to book and let the paint start flying. For the hand letterers there weren't fonts in the technical sense. Each painter would build a repertoire of kinds. These kinds defined broad classifications - standard or block styles, roman designs, obstruct serifs, scripts and casuals and the single stroke kinds. If you wanted a bold you utilized a broader brush. Italic forms were a slanted block or serif form with script or casual flourishes and terminals. There were stove pipeline kinds that functioned as condensed letter styles. A lot of customers accepted these limitations


But, there will always be customers who are tough. These folks wanted a specific print font for their signs. In the digital age, it is a basic matter to purchase the font and run it through the plotter or digital printer and be done. Back then, those fellows had to adjust something they were practiced at to brand-new serifs and terminals. Any new "font" needed to be practiced until the painter could replicate the letters with some confidence. DeVinne was popular enough that Frank Atkinson included it among his demonstrations typefaces in his manual on indication painting.


If you like strong serif fonts for screen and heading type, FHA Indication DeVinne may be what you are searching for. Okay, so it is a revival of a Frank H. Atkinson traditional, is that a bad thing? It is upgraded and modernized with an effort to tidy up any pesky problems with character contract. For die difficult purests of hand lettered fonts, we included our initial FHA Sign Painters DeVinne which more carefully follows Atkinson's lines - even those cool numbers. It appears a bit trite to state that Sign DeVinne is a face for a new millennial, but, there, we've stated it. The typeface has clear vibrant strokes and a well specified character. So, what are those other font styles? Just for enjoyable, we added 3 effects font styles. Shade adds an extrusion to the base font style and, Shade25 adds either an extrude and overview to the base font or an overview to the base and the Shade. FHA Sign DeVinne Shaded is a mix of the base and Shade25. Is that cool or what?
