Typonine Stencil is an unusual take on industrial letterforms. The family’s burly finesse overturns the notion that such letterforms only belong to wooden crates and cartons, rugged sites and atmospheres. It’s meant for headlines, signage, and custom lettering – uses for which its two widths and three weights are perfect.
 
 
Stencil types are too often associated with and derived from shipping container lettering: viz., Stencil, Tea Chest and FF Karton. Or they are simply lame extensions of existing fonts (eg.
