Fun calligraphy by On The Spot Studios mixed with a handwritten uppercase! This font duo is refreshing and easy to stamp, and can be mixed and matched with some of our older, discontinued fonts! We love when fonts can mix and match and pair with others! This font duo is unique in that it also has (26) alternate lowercase letters (not a full set of lowers, just alternates of some letters, so heads up!).
The true name of this font duo is called "Golden Glaze" and is by On the Spot Studio.
GOLDEN is the UPPERCASE set:
- The uppercase letters come in: 3.5mm, 4.5mm, 6.5mm
- The 6.5mm is on 3/8" shanks, and the 4.5mm and 3.5mm are on 1/4" shanks.
- GOLDEN sizing is also the sizing for the numbers, so the numbers sets are in 3.5mm, 4.5mm, and 6.5mm
- The symbols are sized to go with the uppercase, so the Ampersand, Exclamation Point and Question Mark will all be the same sizing as GOLDEN, and naturally, the rest of the symbols will be sized appropriately for the set and be smaller.
- The Symbols set comes with 11 stamps; AND/THE are not included and are sized differently from these fonts.
GLAZED is the LOWERCASE set and the ALTERNATE lowercase set:
GLAZED LOWERCASE comes with the standard 26 letters, and comes in the following sizes: 3mm, 4mm, 5.75mm
GLAZED ALTERNATE lowercase letters are NOT the full set of lowers; they are just fun alternates to use as the beginning or ending letters for: a, b, d, g, h, j k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, y (some of those letters have more than one alternate letter).
- The 3mm and 4mm are on 1/4" shanks. The 5.75mm and 6.5mm are on 5/16" shanks.
My two cents:
- This font is VERY thick lined. Newer stampers should use both Glazed and Golden in soft metals only.
- While both glazed and golden are rated for stainless steel, the thicker lines of these fonts may be better for soft metals.
- GLAZED 5.7mm and GOLDEN 6.5mm are both recommended for *experienced* stainless steel stampers who have an excellent stamping post set up.
- Golden looks better when lined up with tape; Glazed does not require tape to line up, but also looks great when tape is used.
- Under my "Four Types of Fonts" categories, GLAZED would be considered a "feminine" font, and GOLDEN would be considered a "fun" or "neutral" font.
- The alternate letters in Glazed really add a lot of variation to the beginning and ending words. Are they critical to your stamping arsenal? No, but they sure do add some pizzaz to your words!!
