Introducing Linefeed, the retro-inspired monospaced typeface that transports you back to the 1960s and 1970s era of computer band printers. Drawing inspiration from the revolutionary technology of the time, Linefeed captures the essence of the clunky yet iconic machines that were responsible for producing some of the most important documents of the time.

Imagine a row of hammers, one for each column, smacking the paper against the ribbon and raised characters embossed on a constantly revolving steel band. This is the heart of the Linefeed font, paying homage to the technology that paved the way for the digital age. Most band printers of the time were restricted to uppercase, digits, and a little punctuation to ensure maximum efficiency, but Linefeed brings this beloved typeface to life with added lowercase letters, extra punctuation, and accents.

Linefeed was once one of the most widely used computer fonts during the 1960s and 1970s. It could be found on a plethora of documents, including driver’s licenses, magazine subscription labels, report cards, invoices, and auto dealership window stickers, among other things.

In a world where sleek and modern designs dominate, Linefeed offers a refreshing throwback to the golden age of computing. Its technical design, inspired by the machines of yesteryear, is a testament to the ingenuity and creativity of early computer designers. With its monospaced layout and vintage charm, Linefeed is sure to bring a touch of nostalgia to any design project.
