It's Courier, just better.
Since the beginning, screenplays have been written in Courier. Its uniformity allows filmmakers to make handy comparisons and estimates, such as 1 page = 1 minute of screen time.
But there’s no reason Courier has to look terrible. We set out to make the best damn Courier ever.
Looks sharp everywhere.
Screenplays have a lot of white space, so we made Courier Prime a bit heavier to balance things out. It looks just as good on your monitor as out of the printer.
Courier Prime is optimized for 12 point size, and matches the metrics of Courier and Courier Final Draft, so you can often swap it out one-for-one.
Other Couriers just slant the letters to create faux italics. We give you a whole new face, modeled off the “casual” script of vintage typewriters, that looks magnifique.
Courier Prime now has two new family members.
A brand-new editing typeface that’s sharp on the screen and easy on the eyes.
Courier Prime Code features larger line height, new asterisk, slashed zero and straight-legged italic “f.”
Big thanks to their generosity.
Courier Prime was designed by Alan Dague-Greene for John August and Quote-Unquote Apps.
