MarkerFeltWide v.2 TrueType Font for the PC 4/93
1797 Ross Inlet Road
Coos Bay, OR 97420
A Type 1 MacIntosh Postscript font (converted to PC TrueType for use
with Windows 3.1); an upper and lower case font, MarkerFeltWide makes
typed copy look spontaneously hand lettered and gives messages urging
immediacy a casual, personal touch as if made with a wide, felt-tip
marker. Similar to MarkerFeltThin, but offering wider stroked letters.
Use for eye-catching notices, headlines and ad display to convey
spontaneous expression for messages of: urgency, immediacy or:
Instead of reaching for a trusted (hopefully capped) felt-tip pen loaded
with permanent ink to scrawl impulsive messages, reach for the keyboard
and click away. Cartoonists tell me MarkerFeltThin is excellent at
smaller sizes (I recommend no lower than 12 pts.) The same with
MarkerFeltWide. It's IDEAL at 24 and up for ad copy, posters, displays
Normal keyboard strokes will produce numbers, the hyphen and = sign, and
shifted symbols also the superscripted numbers of 00 and 99 above the to give better visual effect when wanting to show prices of like $4.99
$5.00. Input from registered users caused me to create Version 2 which
updates the font with additional characters: legal symbols, Ellipses,
em and en dashes several diacritical characters and more.
To Install: Once in Windows 3.1 launch the Control Panel in the Main
window. Select Fonts utility and click on the Add...Button. Choose the
