We don't need Anubis to bring Egyptian Hieroglyphs back from the dead! The trend has it that symbols are IN and who doesn't love a little mystery? Just like a secret language, our hieroglyphs are sourced from various Egyptian experts, and the consensus of the designs for each letter were selected. As you know, Egyptians didn't have the English-American alphabet way back in the day, so many of these symbols are a "close to the sound" instead of an actual representation of the letter. That being said, there are some duplicate stamps as not all 26 letters as we know them exist in hieroglyphics.
Here's a cool tid-bit of knowledge:
If you were to research Egyptian Hieroglyphs, you'd find some "text" with the images all facing left, and some text with all images facing right. This is because while most Egyptian Hieroglyphs are read from TOP to BOTTOM, occasionally they were read from LEFT to RIGHT orrrr from RIGHT to LEFT. The images all face the direction of the intended way it should be read! Fascinating!
All of our hieroglyphs point LEFT, so if you were to hammer text in this horizontal fashion, you'll want to hammer it to be read LEFT to RIGHT (and vertical is still TOP to BOTTOM).
Sizes available: 3mm, 5mm
Sets: Uppercase, Numbers (ONLY 5 NUMBERS! 1, 10, 100, 1000, 10000)
There are 24 stamps in this UNICASE font - as C/K , E/I , F/V , and U/W all share the same image. This font also comes with one stamp to represent "SH" and one stamp to represent "CH"!
My two cents:
- In my "Four Categories of Fonts" blog post, I would consider this font to fall into the FUN category.
- This font looks BEST when used with tape, although it is not 100% necessary.
- This font works in ALL metals and works amazingly well in stainless steel, too!
