The Wedding Text font in our print shop exhibit.

We’ve been highlighting a variety of one-of-a-kind font styles in our printing shop exhibition and also today we intended to talk about Wedding Text. July 16th is National Wedding Invitation Day!

Wedding celebration Text was developed by Morris Fuller Benton in 1901 for the American Type Founders (ATF). This kind face ended up being so preferred that its style soon began appearing with other font shops with different names.

In this video, Howard typesets and prints an instance of this font style. This kind in our print store was made by a Monotype device instead of a kind foundry. Howard likewise shares a pet peeve concerning this font.
