Bevelry Freeware TrueType Font


The font files included in this archive were created by Doug Peters and “12Me21” using Fontstruct, the free online font-building tool.

This font plays a trick on the eye. When a character is by itself, it is difficult to see what it is. But in words, sentances and paragraphs, the characters are easily distinguishable as embossed (or engraved, depending on perception) sans serif letters, numerals and some punction.

The original font was Shadow, from which I made Bevelry with additional support for the lowercase character set that Shadow lacked. In keeping with Shadow, Bevelry tries to create compact characters that actually look squashed, taking as little room as possible. However, this created an irregular lowercase set size, so Bevelry Tall Small Caps increased the size allowed for the lowercase character set to bring uniformity to the font, while maintaing the original size of the already condensed uppercase character set. Bevelry Tall was then created to give the finished font the uniformity allowed by a modern digital type. The original modified clones are also maintained in this distribution archive to appease which ever angle an artist or designer might require.

I remember David Carson (known as a previous designer for Raygun Magazine) asking me if I had any unusual, weird or wild new fonts. So now when I create them I am less inclined to simply throw away the previous versions, as they can be useful themselves, aside from telling the story of how a typeface evolved.

This website makes use of the font Bevelry (available at by Doug Peters ( and derived from Shadow by 12Me21 (

Doug Peters used Shadow to create Bevelry by changing a few uppercase characters and adding the lowercase set of characters. The numerals and limited punctuation remains the same.

Font Tools:

Try creating your own font, it's fun. Fontstruct is a free font editor available at - it’s easy to learn and use. FontStruct is copyright ©2014-2018 Rob Meek

If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor to create your own font(s), I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, too. FontLab is the flagship typographic tool of the Fontlab company.

Another free online font creation tool, the FontStructor, is available through: Short Link:

Submit Your Font:

Be sure to submit any font you might create or legally modify that we could use here. Any font that has a complete letterset (A-Z, a-z, 0-9 &+~!@#$%^&*()_=-`"':;<>?/|\[{}],.) that is freely distributable would be greatly apprectiated, especially if it is OK for commercial use. We also love fonts that can be used as web fonts. Be sure to use a unicode letterset when you save your work or the font simply won't display right here at Font-Journal. It's our most important requirement.

About Font-Journal:

Font-Journal is a cataloged archive of freeware and shareware fonts that I maintain for my small business, start-up and freelancing clients. I try to collect PC truetype freeware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes, and shareware fonts that can be used for commercial purposes upon registration and/or payment of the shareware fee. I also try to collect freely distributable web fonts of the same variety. The end result is a pretty decent font repository, although I can only work on it in my spare time, which I have little of.

About Me:

My portfolio usually needs to be updated, as I always have a ton of projects going and I even like to design my own fonts to offer exclusively through my font respository at Font-Journal. But it is another good way to contact me. Short Link:

I started out as an motorcycle racer and mechanic. That didn't work out and I never got in a race car as planned. I wound-up as an illustrator, animator, doing some programming and tech support. Plus I have always been amatuer artist, photographer and videographer. I was designing logos, posters and graphics in college with Illustrator and Photoshop, and wound-up making a website portfolio just afterwards. A few people liked it and I wound-up as a freelance web design studio. Then I expanded into web hosting, then domain name registrations and servers, offering a complete set of webmaster tools as Domain Hostmaster. I then added the Domainance store in an effort to keep .name registrations and transfers available when our vendor dropped it. Site Domains has been added to ensure the best deals between all 3 registrars. Short Link: Short Link: Short Link:

Nowadays, I am just trying to corner a peice of the domain name registration and website hosting space, offering more for less than most with better customer/technical support. Professional domainers, designers, developers, optimizers and webmasters do like how I keep prices as low as possible and that I add my expertise and value where I can. In my spare time I have other projects, such as designing my own fonts.
