Created by Ray Larabie, Ultraproxi is a typewriter and show sans font household. This typeface has twelve styles and was released by Typodermic Font styles Inc.

Ultraproxi is an austere, technical sans-serif typeface. Visual hints were taken from high speed computer system printers from the 1950s to 1970s. You've most likely seen this type of printing on old driver's licenses or magazine membership labels. Among the more popular, early line printers was the IBM 1403 chain printer. Metal type slugs were connected in a chain which quickly whirled over an ink ribbon. On the back of the page, a succession of electro-magnetic hammers smacked the paper when the proper character lined up. The hammers struck rapidly however that fast-moving chain of slugs caused some horizontal smearing. Those devices were lightning quickly; later on designs might print over 1000 lines per minute. This printing system required a durable typeface design which was with the catalyst for Ultraproxi.

Ultraproxi is based upon a semi-monospace concept. It has some of the attributes of monospaced type without actually being monospaced. Your readers will perceive it as having a technical demeanor but you will not need to deal with the downsides of working with genuine monospaced type: irregular spacing and less words to the line. Ultraproxi consists of 6 weights and italics. Practically all existing Latin based languages are supported, consisting of Cyrillic languages and Greek.
