Pinafore Sans Font Family

Pinafore is a fun sans serif font family with upright and oblique styles as well as paper cut versions of each. It includes small caps (see note below for more on this), multilingual support (including multiple currency symbols), an awesome ampersand, math symbols, and more.

Note: Pinafore comes with eight font files, but they are not sold separately. Rather, you get all eight for the price of one.

See below for more information and to try a live preview of the font.

Pinafore SC Oblique: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Pinafore SC Papercut Upright: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
Pinafore SC Papercut Oblique: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Pinafore includes the following OpenType features:

  • localized forms (multi-language and multi-currency support)
  • small capitals (a.k.a. small caps)

The OpenType features can be very easily accessed by using OpenType-savvy programs (like Adobe, Corel, Affinity). (Some (but not all) of these awesome features can be accessed in programs like Microsoft Word, but you'll need to get comfortable with the advanced tab of Word's font menu. If you need help with this, find it here.)

You’ll find the best OpenType support in programs like Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop as well as apps from Corel and Affinity. Apps like Sketch 3, Quark XPress 7+, Microsoft Word and Apple Pages have some support. However, please note that cutting software (like Silhouette Studio, Cricut Design Space, SCAL, and others) DO NOT offer OpenType support. 

If you’ve turned on advanced font features in software like Word and still can’t access the character you want to access, or if you are hoping to use these OpenType features with a vinyl cutter or other similar machines, we can help with that.

A note about small caps: There are TWO ways to access the small caps in this font family. For OpenType-savvy programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign, these can be accessed from within the main font files using the character panel or the glyphs panel. For programs that do not access these OpenType features, I have also included small-caps-specific font files. In these files, the regular caps are accessed by typing capital letters and the small caps are accessed by typing lowercase letters.

Support for English, Western European, Eastern European Languages, and Russian.

Includes support for US, Canadian, and Australian native languages and Mexican native languages.

If you need to know if this font supports a specific language, just ask.
