Free Old Typewriter Font


I know there are many typewriter fonts out there, but I had to give it a shot :) – I found this old letter, so I just scanned it and extracted whatever letters were available. The alphabet was almost complete, but still had to do some myself.

The font can be used for both personal and commercial projects (see the ReadMe file included in the zip). Check out the character map below and drop me a comment or share the post if you like the font. Thanks!

    Really nice font but I am so sad that I cant use it since it is missing critical letters in the icelandic alphabet. Letters like Ð ð Æ æ Þ þ.

    Hopefully you will consider adding those :)

  39. kelly

    i downloaded it, but cant figure out how to open it either. can you help? im usually not this stupid!

    • Hi Kelly,
      You have to extract the font from the zip file – if you right click on it there should be an option to extract. If you are on Windows 7 or Vista you can right click on the fzm-Old.Typewriter.ttf and Install. On previous versions of Windows you have to copy the ttf file to the Fonts folder (you can access it in the Control Panel). On Mac double click the ttf and choose Install Font.
      Also note that the font will appear on your list under the name “fzm Old Typewriter”.

  49. nicole

    I’m new to downloading font and stuff, so i have no idea what the heck i’m doing.
    I’m trying to use this on Microsoft Word, how do i do it?

    • Hi Nicole,
      After you download it you have to extract the font from the zip file – right click on it there should be an option to extract. Once you extract it, you will see a file named fzm-Old.Typewriter.ttf. If you are on Windows 7 or Vista you can right click on it and choose Install. On previous versions of Windows you have to copy the ttf file to the Fonts folder (you can access the folder in the Control Panel). After the installation open Microsoft Word and look for “fzm Old Typewriter” on your font list. Hope that helps! :)
