Copperplate font is sans-serif typeface designed by Frederic W. Goudy and released by American Type Founders (ATF) in 1901. Copperplate refers to a style that uses steel quill to produce thick and thin lettering. The typeface reminds people of the carving on copperplate engravings and the Victorian display types. Initially, this font is intended to serve for the headings and key words rather than the body text, but now with the efforts of ATF, it is replaced by the bold, condensed and shaded styles as well as a lowercase. And copperplate font is very popular among stationery, social printing and business cards.
