Best Font To Use for Football Jerseys

5 posts in this topic

Hello...

Anyone know what font is the best to use for a standard NFL Football Jersey?

Just like the Numbers on Simmons in this pic.

I used one called collegiate. Its not exact, but Its a pretty basic block letter/number.

I've said it before and I'll say it again...

Oddly enough, I don't think there's a commercially available font for the generic beveled/block numbers and nameplate lettering used by most teams. ITC Machine is used by the Dolphins, and most Little League baseball teams. But the lettering you're showing looks like the standard silk screen or press-on numbers found at the local embroidery shop. When I was looking for lettering like that to work on customizing some of my MacFarlane figures, I redrew them all in Illustrator using Roger Clemente's .gif number & letter files.

You can also download something called "Pop Warner" from a web site.

1001fonts.com has Pop Warner, but it looks very similar to SF Collegiate, except for the 1. The capitals are very similar to the generic lettering you might get from a silkscreener, but they look a little heavy. The lower case letters look surprisingly different from the capitals. The numbers are not quite what the Seahawks have in the picture, but it's probably the closest thing available.
