You are allowed to:

:iconcc0-plz:It's a free typeface for everybody for everything. You don't even have to credit me (but it would be nice). I, the copyright holder of this work, hereby release it into the public domain. This applies worldwide.
If this is not legally possible:
I grant any entity the right to use this work for any purpose, without any conditions, unless such conditions are required by law.


This has been created as a test to see how fonts work (I think I'm going to do more of them when I get the time), as an entry for :icondreamers-welcome:'s February challenge "key", with use of Public Domain resources found here and here, Inkscape, OnlineFontConverter and FontForge.
The preview image was made in GIMP and used Trepidation Tesselation Tile as background pattern.

The downloadable ZIP archive contains the following files:
LICENSE.txt (text about the licensing - short version: it's basically Public Domain!)
SamysKeysNKeys.otf (OpenType installable font file)
SamysKeysNKeys.ttf (TrueType installable font file)
SamysKeysNKeys.svg (original file - not installable)
prevSamysKeysNKeys.png (preview image file)

Currently, the font supports the characters a-z,A-Z. All other characters are replaced by a lock.

Don't know how to use ZIP archives?Click here for instructions.

This is not what you are looking for? I found some key fonts for you:

Well, I can't type with this, but I can make use of it anyway, so I'm downloading it too! I might use this for something I make in Visual Basic on day!

<sarcasm> You can't type with this? But it's clearly readable! </sarcasm>

Well, it was a test. I needed to know what I could do to do Samys Bookified Tuffy - which is not very good for typing either, it's more for decoration.

Go ahead, it's PD.

Whoops! I didn't want to put it under CC-BY. I wanted everyone to use it for free, without needing to give me credit! (dA doesn't have an option for CC0.)

I fixed it. No more CC-BY, now everyone can use it any way they want.

So it's public domain?
If you want :)

It's absolutely Public Domain, like it says in the description.

Of course, PD is not a legal license everywhere around the world in this case, but the minimum requirements are also met by the text in the description.

I'm glad you like it. Have fun, it's nothing more than another random dings font.
Oh, I noticed that the [space] character is not supported. You will get a lock instead. And I'm too lazy to fix it =P.

Tried it out. looked rather funny, like a minefield of keys with some lone numbers and puncuation marks in it. But I have to add this critique of your font: It is a little illegible :giggle:

Like a secret language, right ? And you need the key to decode it. :giggle:

No need to get keyed up about it. I don't want to lock horns with you, I'm afraid I would space out - I've always been the quiet type, face away, please, or I'll call my italic friends to underline the consequences of your boldness.

I'm not very font of my puns, even an elefont could do better.

:rofl: I guess I better go hide in a locked up room from your italic friends then. I am scared about how they might underline the consequences of my boldness.

Nice work :) I tried to make fonts myself too :)
But I finished only two.

Thanks. Yeah, fonts aren't all that easy, I had to fix a lot manually.
I only found one, the rune alphabet, but good job on that one!

Because the other one is for myself, for personal use.

Yeah, it's not bad for a test^^. Now that I know how to do fonts, I think I will make some with my own creations.
