Atari Fonts/Graphics on PC?

Recommended Posts

I’m going to be putting an Atari site together that will basically just consist of a gridlist and I would like to use Atari fonts/Graphics to do it.. Is there an app for the PC that is taylor made to do this perhaps, or do I simply need to hunt down a font and save the items as graphics so the user gets it as well?

There are ttf fonts emulating atari character set. The problem is how to deliver the font to the web viewers. I guess there is a mechanism. Google webfonts?

There's computer fonts as well as close matches for the futuristic one used on most packaging in the Warner era.

 

The ones I have matching the packaging "SF Atarian" and variants.

Like I was saying - I would likely just save the text as an image to present the same font to everyone regardless of whether or not it was installed rather than dick with people not seeing the expected font....

 

Thanks for the responses guys!

Cool thank you.. yes it will be a very simple website that consists of all Atari BBS software (lots more than what Jason Scott has) that have been found as well as those that are still sought....Likely just Atari 8 - but possibly ST as well since I’ve found a few unknowns for it too....

 

likely just a single page site as a matter of fact.. but i want it to look kick ass and be atari themed.

Definitely use web fonts and avoid using images for text. Not only are the images not text searchable, but they won’t scale well for different displays.
