Originally designed in 1901, Copperplate Gothic was first released as a font family containing several weights and condensed variations. The font name reflects the popularity of this particular style of typeface during the time that copperplate engraving was a popular technique for reproducing illustrated material; from about 1530 up to the 19th century. Although a true lowercase has never been designed, Copperplate Gothic is ideal for all-capital text typically set in small print. For example, it's very popular for use on business cards. Tiny serifs lend Copperplate Gothic a distinctive feel. The design captures both the sturdiness of a sans serif, as well as the elegance of typefaces with serifs.
