Grassroots Typewriter Font


Introducing Grassroots, a classic typewriter serif. This font was inspired by a 1950’s Royal Quiet De Luxe Typewriter, and features textured letters & symbols, creating a realistic look & feel without needing to source your own antique machine! (Or spend an arm & a leg in the process!)

Example Below

Each keystroke on an old typewriter shows variations based on the ink ribbon & how hard or soft the typebars strike the ribbon & paper. This font was designed to provide multiple options for each letter so that you can further customize the look & feel of your text. Choose from lightly textured letters, all the way to grimy, inky letter variations! This font also includes double letter ligatures for all capital & lowercase letters to provide a more realistic experience when hitting the same letter key twice in rapid succession.

Grassroots mixes antique, vintage charm with modern, robust OpenType features. The result is an incredibly versatile font with options galore, which can be used for a variety of projects ranging from replicating a classic, old school look & feel, all the way to a modern, trendy, hip aesthetic.

Grassroots is best for:

– rustic farmhouse decor and crafts
– bold, edgy logos + branding
– posters & labels
– product packaging
– greeting cards & scrapbooking
– website design + website accents, blog design
– quote graphics for social media
– graphic tee shirt design & other apparel

– .otf, .ttf, and webfont files

Font files include .otf, .ttf, and webfonts. Some fonts include OpenType features, best accessed through programs that support OpenType features like Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator — you can access them through the Glyphs panel! Ligatures, swashes, and other special characters may also be accessed through Character Map or FontBook and copy/pasted. It is highly recommended that you understand what you are purchasing before you do so — the extra characters WILL take some hunting down if you don’t have easy-access software like Adobe products.
