Optical Sizes

Workhorse Script Stencil is designed with 6 optical sizes so your type looks sharp at any size. Micro features a high x-height and heavier weight to perform better at small sizes. In addition, at Micro size letters like the uppercase b, d and r shed some of their flourishes in exchange for clarity at smaller sizes.

Typeface Information

Workhorse Script Stencil is a modern take on the classic English Roundhand script, influenced by industrial American stencils. The stencils allow the flowing script forms to flow around each other making for an unusual combination of sophistication and grit.

While stenciling a script might seem blasphemous and crass, handwritten script forms have been reproduced by engraving slabs of metal for centuries. Where engraving creates a positive form, stenciling creates a mostly-intact negative form through which the bulk of the letterform can shine through.

6 Styles:
Extra Fine, Fine, Display, Text, Caption, Micro
