Font of the Week

engravers-font-of-the-week

In 1902, Morris Fuller Benton and Robert Wiebking found themselves inspired by the hand carved fonts created by engravers of the past century. This style gave engravers a chance to show their extreme attention to detail while still creating a legible typeface. Thus, Engravers was born! This elegant font promotes the contrast between thick and thin strokes. Today, Engravers has found it’s home on invitations and in advertising work.
