The design of the Vtg Stencil Ideal No.1 was drawn from authentic 1 inch stencils, from an early (circa 1920s - 1940s) Ideal No.1 stencil machine. Later models use punches and dies with some slightly modified characters such as the letters N, M, S and &.

Signature letters are A, B, G, M, Q, N, S, & and the numbers 2, 3 and 5.

We have also added a 60 version of this typeface made from a 1968 produced No.1 machine. The Regular and Mono font styles of the 60 version support Cyrillic script.

Attention: We are looking for samples of the Big Ideal No.0 (2") and Ideal No.2 (5/8"), and Quarter (¼") and the samples of Cyrillic versions - and of course for versions of the very late Ideal No.1 (housings have a brownish colour).
