Copperplate font styles have a lot in common with slab serif fonts, with the main difference being the way they are constructed. Platten fonts are made up of many individual strokes that represent a letter or number. Platter typefaces will typically have thick, solid shapes that are easy to read at any size and across multiple platforms. These ultra-readable fonts are popular among graphic designers looking to create a strong impression with their type choices.
One of the most difficult tasks when creating a new typeface is to choose a name. While there are several ways to go about it, one of the simplest is to come up with a series of words that can be used in addition to your typeface’s name to describe it. This approach works well for fonts designed specifically for print, where word spacing and font size are much more important than on screen. In addition, it allows you to create a typeface family with names that can be shared by different members of your staff.
