Hi, ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. I have purchased a Kwikprint Model #55 and have come across a very reasonably priced Kingsley type/font set. Does anyone know if Kingsley type fits the Kwikprint. Can't seem to find anything specific about this through my research. Cheers,
After being thoroughly unimpressed with the font selections for letter/number stamping I stumbled on a post or two here that talk about using metal letterpress type to do the job. After poking around the Intergoogle a bit I can honestly say I'm completely convinced! I do have a few questions about it before I pull the pin on a set. Are there general guidelines for what font characteristics work better or worse? Is bold bad or good? Thin bad or good? What is the smallest size font that is workable with leather? Are there particular fonts that look better in leather than others? My guess is that 18 pt is probably as small as you would want to go and my plan is to start with 24 (for custom bracelets) then 30, 36, etc, etc, up to maybe 72 eventually. For each size I would probably want a generic and non-flashy font and a more elegant cursive/script type font. I know it will take me many years to accumulate all of that but for now I would like to know what would be best for my first purchase of 24 pt. Thanks in advance, Dave
