Old School Type

I remember the first time I discovered a sheet of Letraset in my father’s home office. It must have been the early 80s, just before the home computer allowed anyone to do their own typesetting. I thrilled at the idea of adding words to my collages and folders that were perfect (unlike my messy handwriting).

Rub-on letters seem to be making a bit of a come back lately. I guess that’s not surprising in light of all the 80s-inspired fashion in stores. Veer is taking the trend to a whole new level, though, with its Letter Set Transfers featuring five modern typefaces.

Add your own voice to the typographic chorus with five sheets of dry transfer lettering featuring fonts available exclusively at Veer. Just rub the letters into place wherever you want to leave a message or simply write your name. Included are DF Korolev by Rian Hughes, Phaeton by Randy Jones & Kevin Cornell, Hooligan and Eloquent Pro by Jason Walcott, and Semilla by Alejandro Paul.

    In school there was a typography professor that was all about making three 4×6 post cards a week using rub-on letters, vinyl sticker letters, basically whatever we could find to keep us from using the computer. I sort of appreciated it then, but really appreciate it now. Those little things were a fun creative exercise. Sometimes when I find myself in a rut from staring at a screen all day, I take out the blank post cards, some vinyl type, rub-on letter sheets and get to work. I’ll be picking up one of these books for the future!
