About Announcement Board JNL Font Family

Many decades back, churches, schools and other buildings with a need to display an outdoor message often chose a sign making system utilizing characters silk screened onto metal pieces in a block chamfer style. Each piece had a crimp in the top of the metal which formed a hook to fit over the existing rails of a message panel. This allowed for a finished sign to be displayed within minutes, and a quick change of information was not very time-consuming. A popular version of these signs provided white letters and numbers on black backgrounds. This was the model for Announcement Board JNL, which is available in both regular and oblique versions. There are two different width blank panels on the broken and solid bars for those who wish to kern the letters tight to form a ribbon, however they were designed to have slight spacing in order to emulate the hand assembly of those vintage sign panels.

About Jeff Levine

Jeff Levine has been in love with lettering since the third grade, when a schoolmate brought a lettering stencil into class. He has worked in both the graphics and music industries, and began his work with digital type via his own site, which hosted over one hundred free dingbat fonts until its retirement in 2009. Although these fonts were experimental at best, Jeff received "thank you" letters from points all over the world for making his designs available. Encouraged by these responses, Jeff decided to set his sights on creating interesting and commercially viable type fonts.
