Stern Pro

Stern Pro is the last typeface completed by legendary designer Jim Rimmer. Named in memory of Chris Stern, the late artist and printer from Washington State, Stern was originally released in 2008. It is ‘the only typeface to be produced and marketed simultaneously in digital and metal’ and it is the subject of Richard Kegler’s documentary, Making Faces: Metal Type in the 21st Century. Canada Type remastered and expanded the design in 2013.

  • over 1200 characters
  • small caps
  • tall caps
  • historical forms
  • a wide variety of alternates
  • ligatures
  • 7 kinds of numerals
  • automatic fractions
  • a complete set of lower case ordinals
  • case-sensitive forms
  • language support for Greek and over 50 Latin languages
