Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Heritage Type Co. of Berlin, Germany, http://www.heritagetype.com, recently released a bundle of digital vintage-appearing type fonts that have many possibilities for use in creating scale structure signs, station signs, advertisements and more, appropriate for many past eras. Their Vintage Font Bundle is priced at $49 and available for download at their website. Fonts come in OpenType and TrueType formats and are compatible with Windows-based and Mac computers running Microsoft Word, PowerPoint Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop Elements and other software. I used a Dell laptop running Windows 7 and Microsoft Office. The purchase, download and installation procedure was quick and easy. I selected the font package at the website, paid via PayPal using a standard dialog, and received a confirmation with an active download link about 1 minute later. The fonts came in a 350 Mb ZIP file. I unpacked the file using a standard ZIP reader, navigated the folder tree to a particular font, and double-clicked on an OTF (OpenType Format) file, which caused the instant installation of that font into Windows and Word.
Fonts in the bundle are titled Royal Signage, Blackriver, Brilon, OldErika and OldAlfie.
In a few seconds, I had mocked up the signs shown here using PowerPoint, for later printing on a color laser printer.
While these fonts are 21st-century creations, they appear era-appropriate for 1880 to 1950. For less than the cost of many craftsman kits, this package offers beautiful fonts that are easy to use and will enhance many structures and signs.
