The Stymie Statements collection consists of short and sweet statements in bold letters and bright colours. This collection is for those of you who don’t want any frills; you just want to get your message across in the simplest way possible.
Cards are printed from 48pt Stymie Black metal type, which was designed in 1931 by Morris Fuller Benton and manufactured by the American Type Foundry. Stymie is what is known as a Slab or Square Serif typeface meaning it has thick block-like projections at the tops and bottoms of certain letters. Originally designed to be used for large headlines and advertising materials it is deliberately bold in appearance and is therefore perfect for making simple statements, which is what this collection is all about.
