What is the Metroscript™ font?

Michael Doret had been doing lettering in styles similar to Metroscript in his design work for many years, but with the advent of OpenType technology he realized that he could actually put together a script font that would finally do justice to this style, and be almost indistinguishable from hand-lettering. More…
There was no one single inspiration for Metroscript: rather it is an amalgam of many different scripts that were popular hand-lettered styles between the 1920s and the 1950s. Metroscript is suggestive of vintage sports ephemera—especially when tails are added to words—but is also appropriate in virtually any context. Its many ligatures, swashes, alternates, foreign accented characters and tails—all of which connect seamlessly—set it apart from most other script fonts. For a better understanding of its unique features please download The Metroscript User Manual from the Gallery section.
All the above features are accessible from Metroscript’s OpenType font. Also included in the same package is a folder of five Metroscript fonts specifically designed for those who only have applications that are not OpenType compatible. By installing the fonts from this folder instead of the OpenType folder, anyone will be able to access all of Metroscript’s unique features.
If you like the Metroscript style, you’re sure to love the recently released Dynascript.

PLEASE NOTE: When setting Metroscript one should ALWAYS select the “Standard Ligatures” and “Contextual Alternates” buttons in your OpenType palette. See the “Read Me First!” file in the Gallery section.
