Superman Font

Post by nayzwulf6913 » Sat May 28, 2016 2:56 pm

I'm trying to make a Superman costume for a friends cat and I tried freehand cutting out the S and a T combined and really want better. Is there a font that anyone knows of where I can combine the two letters into the symbol? I'm needing the shape of the emblem and letters to measure roughly 4.5"x5.5" Thanks in advance for any advice. :?:

This sounds more like a drawing question than a font question! What software do you have, and what font have you been trying to use?

You may be right that this is actually more of a drawing question, I just thought there might be a font like Paul's Super Font which I tried that allows you to combine the letters. Thank you both.

All the font will do is lessen the time it would take to join the appropriate parts from a vector editing application compared to drawing it out. One would type the two letters, convert to curves, slice off inappropriate parts, move pieces around, rejoin, etc.

However, the logo looks its best with a single letter (or an odd number of letters) in it as it can then be centered. It's what the eye expects from that shape.

If you have a drawn design you like, how about uploading it? I would be glad to draw it out for you if needed.
