About this font family
The Vtg Stencil fonts from astype are based on real world stencils. The US No. 4 design was derived from a typical antique American stencil-plate. This revolving stencil-plate was invented by Eugene L. Tarbox and patented in 1868. It was a mass produced product and a very common tool in the United States.
In case of US No. 4 an original early plate from New York Stencil Works was used. The Regular font style is a clean font design featuring a full standard Type1 glyph set including some typical stencil ornaments and tabular figures. The Paint font style is made from true stenciled letters and features all the letters of the stencil-plate only.
