In the promos section, I list a variety of my websites. You may link back to this font or to any one of my websites. A simple sentence that includes such a link crediting me will suffice, such as "Font used for (describe how the font is used) is Graphee-Tee by Doug Peters, Font-Journal."

You may redistribute this font as long as the font and all the original documents remain in tact and unaltered and it is redistributed under the same exact license. You may also include the font converted to other font formats, as long as the converted font maintains the same font integrity of the original design and you send a copy to Doug Peters through the Font Journal, or Dougs.Work

No Derivatives:
Only new format versions are allowed that maintain the same ingrity of this font (in example, if you can generate a .woff2 format web font). Please send me a copy of any new format conversion of this font at Font-Journal or through one oif my websutes). Otherwise, do not edit, modify or append this font in any way, even for personal use. If you require modifications to this font, contact me and I would be happy to perform any work required under commission.

Proper Font Use Rules:
The uniqueness of this font requires a few rules in order to generate the required effect. Each word should have a capital letter preceding it, and all the trailing letters in the same word should be lowercase. The font was designed to overlap in the style of cartoon lettering from the 70's. The upper case letters have a border to the left, while the lower case letters do not, and by using some trick spacing and kerning techniques, I was able to fudge in most characters so that it looks like the first letter (a capital) overlaps the next, which overlaps the next.

Although all the lowercase characters can look like they overlap each other, even within a lowercase sentence where each word is not capitalized, something looks off about that and therefore word capitalization seems required.

About This Font:
The original intent of this font is for a Tee-shirt designs website logo and for use in some cartoon style Tee-shirt graphics (hence, the name derivative).

This cartoon style sans serif outline capitals font is unique, sporting no character holes in the D, O, P, R 0, or #; and therefore likely won't find many applications, however for those that find the style works for them, it may be a good choice. You can use it in logos, cartoons, lettering, Tee-shirt graphics, poetry wall hangings, slogans or what have you, within the requirements of the license.

This is also a modular vector font, which means that it is also optimized for Flash, though there is likely very few instances of Flash in use today (perhaps animation and/or video production?).

Graphee-Tee has a total count of 101 useful glyphs all in the Basic Latin register and supports the stand alone or first letter upper case capitals and the overlapped capitals in the lowercase letters bank, all numerals, punctuation and some symbols (including the Copyright, TM & SM marks). Also included but not counted in the glyph total are the space and nonbreaking space, while my logo is available in the Specials bank using the unknown character/object glyphs.

Sometimes an f logo glyph will appear for non-supported characters, this is because I created the font in FontStruct, the easy to use, free online font editor.

However, this font does cover the Basic Latin character set. It does not support multiple languages yet (often referred to as 'accented characters'), though. Please contact me through the Font-Journal, FontStruct, or one of my websites if you would like to see multilingual support in this font.

This font also has a similar sister font "Faraday" which does not include the overlap feature and still doesn't sport the normal holes in looped characters, if this one is too far out for you, but you would like something similar (search Font-Journal for "Faraday", I have yet to release it as of this moment I am writing).

This font is also a revisit of the "70's Style Overlap 3D" style font that I had previously done a few years back, and it may be that these two fonts can complement each other, though I wouldn't put them too close to each other on the same page. ;)

The distribution archive for this font was prepared for the Font-Journal by Doug Peters, I run the Font-Journal. This archive represents the official release originally through Font-Journal, and Graphee-Tee has a home there at:

There is also a development version which may be further along in its development, but also may have issues because I save frequently, even before correcting a mistake, and sometimes leaving an issue unsolved before revisiting the problem days later. The development version can be found at:

Also included in the archive are this text file, the license text file and a graphic image sample of what can be done with the font letters and characters. Although this font offers upper and lower case, and though quite different, they are all capitals.

# Font Tools: #

Ever want to create your own font?
Try Fontstruct at
Itís free, easy and itís fun.
Fontstruct © 2018 Rob Meek.

Of course, I have mentioned FontStruct, the free tool I used to make this and many more fonts. Fontstruct is a free font editor available at which was the tool chosen to make this font - itís fun, free, and easy to learn and use. You can even make your own version of this font with it, and there is a great little community of designers there that share with each other, though if you want, you may well keep to yourself and still use the font editor.

Font Editor Software:
If you would like to get yourself a decent font editor to create your own font(s) on your PC or Mac, I recommend Fontographer, although TypeTool might do the job, too. FontLab is the flagship typographic tool of the Fontlab company. However, do note that I do use Fontstruct online.

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. Short Link:

Submit to Google Fonts:
You can also submit your own font to Google Fonts. You can either use FontStruct to submit your finished SIL Open Font Licensed font which fulfills the required Google's required 215 basic basic glyphs (Google Font submission info is available on FontStruct), or you can submit it yourself. More info is available here, on how to submit your font to Google Fonts on GitHub:
(-I will update this Short Link at W3N.US if/when I find a better page on for this info.)

Font Cloud:
Font Cloud is a great place to store your fonts online so that if you need them, you can get them wherever you are as long as you have internet web access. This is a big deal with designers, publishers, printers, or absolutely anyone who relies on a custom font for a logo, letterhead, headline, content, documents, website UI, and all those appropriate webfonts. If you are designing fonts yourself, this may well be a necessity for you, so you can always access your projects. You will get considerable free space just for signing up with Font Cloud, and there are all sorts of options to expand your storage limits.

Collecting Quality Fonts:
If you are interested in grabbing commercial fonts for your own work, I am often showcasing commercial fonts that are free for a limited time, and quality freeware fonts that are OK for commercial use, at one of my fonts groups on Google+ or Facebook: Primary Fonts community at Google+ Communities.

And I have a blog where I often announce my latest font creations or showcase the fonts I like: FontMaster blog on Google's Blogger.

More About Me (Doug Peters, Font Authoring Designer):
There is always a lot behind an old tired face...

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. HD Web Hosting offers great domain hosting, cloud hosting and web server solutions with a free domain name for each paid hosting account, and a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for each and every domain in your account. Site Domains has been added to the list ensuring that I offer the best deals on domains between all the major registrars. Short Link: 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.

I do love to help where I can, so if you feel like reaching out to me, contact me via:

Free Informational Websites:
I mentioned that I like to create free informational websites. Font-Journal is just one of these sites.

I also have others that are small websites and blogs which have specific little bits of info that are related to domains, cloud hosting, web design, website promotion, social media and online marketing. I try to keep these sites up-to-date, as well:

https://Valuate.Info Intellectual property & digital asset valuations. My domain name industry blog (complete w/ the odd rant).
https://Domainers.Name My premium domain name portfolio & info.
https://PremiumBrand.Name Premium brand names showcase website. 3D logo and website header image creation. Simple dictionary word (& soon tech term) lookup tool. HTML character code reference lookup table. Meta Tag SEO: Optimizing meta tags for better search recognition. Using the rrobots.txt file to optimize SE web crawler effeciency. Find your webhost config without waiting for tech support. Add your logo/photo as your website favorites icon (a 'favicon').

I am also currently working on a rather large and very cool website that will eventually unveil at:

'Mobile-First' Responsive Website Design:
If you are interested in getting a website designed for yourself or your business, I still do that at Salamader Design. Stop by and check me out there. I have a growing portfolio of sites I need to add there...

https://Salamander.US Short Link:

Intellectual Properties:
I also design logos and complete brand identity packages, as well as consult and educate people on business branding, including how to conceive, create, design, develop, manage, and protect their own intellectual properties and brand names. This is my primary interest and the whole reason I took control of my own names and brands when others failed me (miserably).

To further promote my business websites, I established a T-shirts & gear products sales page at:

That site also has a few slogan and cartoon style Tees, as well as gear that is available for purchase. The store also acts as a showcase for some of my own logos and brands.

Stock Photography:
Additionally, I try my hand at stock photography every so often. I especially like to take photos of wildlife, but it is hard to always get a good shot with wild critters like deer, turkey, pheasant, etc. But I try to get a few good shots now and again and submit them. My DreamsTime stock photography profile. Dreamstime stock photography website. Free stock photography on DreamsTime. Sell your own images & photos on DreamsTime.

However, I do not recommend setting up any new profiles on any social media/networking site as it is clear that US corporations are spying on our interests, compiling our personal data, raiding our lives, betraying our privacy and using artificial intelligence to conduct espionage on each individual in order to monetize their digital lives, all under the noses of a do-nothing government. This is a sorry state of affairs in mid-2018. 'Nuff sed.
