MyFonts is not yet authorized to sell this font directly. Stephenson Blake is no longer producing fonts. The font is included in our database for completeness. However, Monotype , URW++, Ascender, Adobe and Geoffrey Lee offer the font for sale at MyFonts:
Geoffrey Lee designed Impact for the Stephenson Blake foundry in 1965. The sans serif display typeface is very heavy and condensed in the grotesque style, similar to Helvetica Inserat.
Use Impact in display situations requiring a strong statement.
Impact wide was developed from the designer’s original drawings for the production of ‘Impact’ metal type, with many detail changes because of the density of the letters. These include the restoration of the bevelled i and j dots of the original. Character maps show some useful alternative characters in both roman and italic. Included are a crossbar numeral 1, mirror quotes and some sorts which were cast in metal but never reproduced in digitized versions of the typeface. There is also a font-specific Euro symbol.
