This is the screen font from the IBM 5100 Portable Computer. It is uppercase-only, and has a large repertory of APL-related characters as well. Of note is that no two adjacent horizontal dots are ever both active, because the font seems to have also been intended to be used with a dot-matrix printer.
An alternate version of Dynastium made to fulfill a request.This is a clone of Dynastium
This is a thick dot-matrix version of a very popular classic computer, and it's normally used on word processors, electric billboards, etc. Probably a great font! Update: I just updated to the better, thick dots for all letters and symbols.This is a clone of Apple 2b Dot-Matrix
Recap of a dot matrix lettering taken from a colored sketch originally designed by Jurriaan Schrofer.
It been a while since I did one of Schrofer
It's got more "okayer" detail than the other one. Just as okay as the other one. Really.This is a clone of 8x8 Okay Screen Solid

This is a rendition of one of A. V. Hershey's dot fonts from his 1967 paper "Calligraphy for Computers", the "Mathematical" (serif) font. This version is really a hybrid of the original "Mathematical" and "Cartography" fonts, having some symbols such as the circle drawing and map symbols that the "Mathematical" font originally lacked.This is a clone of Hershey Dot Cartographic
This font is a recreation of Richard Wisan's "ELITEQ.LQN" font file (c) 1990 for use with the program LQMATRIX. From Mr. Wisan's comment in the LQMATRIX documentation file: "ELITEQ.LQN: resembles Epson's resident Roman font, but slightly reduced to suit elite spacing."
LQMATRIX was a font design program for use with Epson LQ [Letter Quality] 24-pin dot matrix printers and compatibles. Created by noted linguist, anthropologist, and photographer J. David Sapir, the program had its beginnings in 1985 and was published by Jimmy Paris Software; the last known version that I have been able to find is version 4.44 (1991). Mr. Sapir included font set submissions from LQMATRIX users in some of the later updates; my version includes Mr. Wisan's file. A screenshot of the program is included in the comments section below.
While the graphics mode of dot matrix printers could print rather complex pictures, it remained extremely slow for large amounts of specialized text. By uploading an LQMATRIX font file into the printer's RAM, the temporary font could be used interchangeablely with the printer's resident ROM fonts. The result was a much faster print speed with little sacrifice in quality -- plus, one could design their own special glyphs or characters to suit their needs!
This was accomplish by a sophisticated design program included with LQMATRIX, whereby users could create and save characters or symbols on a 24 vertical by 15 horizontal grid for the ASCII locations 032–126 (although 001-127 were permitted). One could even place dots in the 14 half-positions along the horizontal.
I have cleaned-up some of the curvatures and harmonized a number of glyphs (along with outright modification of a few, like W and w), yet they still adhere to the same 24 x 15 grid. The original designs can be found beginning in the "More Latin" section. Because the characters for "left single quotation mark" and "right single quotation mark" were not present in DOS, I have "created" them here for sake of completion.
A font resembling a stereotypical dot matrix printer font.
Another brickswap of Marengi. This one will be programmed into actual marquee displays, some physical and some software-based. If only the glow of the LEDs could be simulated with bricks!
Original size: 11pt (use multiples of this value for pixel perfection)This is a clone of Marengi
A letter decorated with a tilting dot pattern.
It's inspired by lettering seen on a brochure for Dutch theatre group "Sater" which was designed by "Jurriaan Schrofer".
I couldn't get it much more accurate that this, neither do I think it was wise desicion to make the main design isometric. Since now I'm tied to this projection. I might do a straight aligned version in the future.
Anyway, I think it is still a cool looking typeThis is a clone

A dot-matrix version of "Official-Ish", and a test of the Filters. :^)
The author recommends using this font at sizes that are multiples of 13, starting with 26, to ensure perfect pixel size/placement. 26, 39, 52, etc. were tested and looked perfect to my eye.
TIP: Size 13 looks like regular "Official-Ish"! You can treat this as two fonts in one for art purposes.This is a clone of Official-Ish
Modified variant of RNTG Larger, which will be seen on all RNTG machines starting February 5, 2018.
The font contains, next to ordinary characters, digits from the original RNTG Larger (1) font, 7-segment display and serif reproduction digits.This is a clone of RNTG Larger
Ferny Grove is a font based on one of the LED destination indicators found on QR EMU/IMU trains. This set includes letters, numbers, symbols, fractions, diacritics, and some Latin-extended-A sets.
A "pseudo" 5x7 dot matrix font (albeit not really), which is designed in a manner to increase readability as in a sans serif font like Arial.
The reason it's called "RNTG" is because it's the work for a fictional communication standard.
Update (12 Nov '17): Support for the Greek alphabet added.This is a clone
This typeface was concevied two years ago and later shelved. Thought that it was still worth finishing so here it is. It's another take on the square dot matrix style that I did with the MinSha typeface back in 2010.
The Clinston Lift Co. 1 is based on the Hyundai's LED indicator. This includes the letters and numbers, extended latins (diacritics), old-style numbers, symbols, superscripts, mathematical operators, new-style Luxen 2, 6, 9, G, arrows, lift symbols, washer symbols, Herbew and Hiragana letters.
This font is based off the "ABC Sunday Night Movie" title from the 1970's, as well as WPIX-TV New York's movie titles from the 1970's.
Based off of the eggcrate marquees and scores on the 1975 CBS game show "The Magnificent Marble Machine".
Includes bullet symbol for blank spaces, and all block symbols from the Fast Money font.This is a clone of Fast Money Three
This is the Helvetica pixelized and remixed by me.
This font does not endorse the rights from Helvetica and Helvetica Neue. If you think that this font endorses the rights from Helvetica and Helvetica Neue, you're an idiot.
Please do not clone this font. I mean it.
