Krylon Bold evolved from a series of experiments
transforming existing typefaces into stencils for use on protest signs.
(Krylon is based on Rockwell). Following the logic of the slab serif,
the stencil spaces approach the same weight as the stroke and serif,
making it a “slab-stencil.”
Instead of points, Krylon
is measured by the percentages found on a photocopier. At 400%,
the widest letter — W — will fit perfectly on an 8.5" x 11" page.
