The Vtg Stencil fonts from astype are based on real world stencils from several countries. The Marsh design was derived from authentic 1 inch stencils, cut by a Marsh model R machine. Marsh produced stencil machines since the 1920s and was one of the most important manufacturers in the USA and worldwide. The letter design is base on a thin, slightly narrow sans serif and strictly monospaced. This leads to some problems with wide and narrow letters like M, W and I. Please note I had to alter some aspects of the original design. I have made three font styles – Regular, Mono and Mono R.
The Regular font style is the most sophisticated design. I revised spacing and some of the proportions and made the bridges closer – of course this style is kerned. The Mono version largely retains my design changes but is monospaced. The Mono R version is very close to the original cut, but I had to fix the ugly bow of the letter S.
