I’m excited to share this newly released calligraphy font, Slapjack, created by the fabulously talented Stephen Rapp. I’m a HUGE fan of his work!
Slapstick has a very versatile look. It would look beautiful on an invitation for a wedding or other event.
Or be a perfect fit for a logo or retail packaging. I could definitely see this on a wine label.
I am in love with that “h” !! And he did an incredible job with the all caps look. Clear and readable yet stylish.
Here’s a little more about this versatile font.
Slapjack is a unique rendition of a broad-edged calligraphic script ideal for packaging, signage, and titling. With a glyph count well over 700, Slapjack is a fully-featured pro font. Using Adobe InDesign which supports Stylistic Sets allows you to instantly convert your text to a version without baseline connectors for a more streamlined look. These can also be selected via the glyph palette.
It’s so cool how you can choose to have a connected or non-connected look. It really changes the feel.
I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen in person and found him to be extremely humble for such a talented lettering artist as well as a truly kind hearted and gentle man.
I think his work beautifully represents those qualities.
Here’s a few samples of some of his other gorgeous fonts.
Hiatus is 30% off for a limited time!
This graphic shows off the gorgeous flourishes in Hiatus.
This historic look of Memoir has the look of beautiful handwriting.
These Memoir ligatures are perfect for envelope addressing.
Montague Script is another font that has a lot of versatility.
New Cuisine is one of my personal favorites and is 33% off for a limited time! Love the modern yet slightly retro look.
