Steel Tongs Font

Instructions

Steel Tongs is the font to be used for the credit block on FSUFILM marketing materials, such as posters and DVD wraps. You’ll need to download the zip file (above) and install the font on your computer before starting work on a poster or DVD wrap, otherwise the credit block will not display correctly.

Steel Tongs works by displaying certain keystrokes as credit titles or logos. All uppercase letters, numerals, and basic punctuation symbols (periods, commas, quotes, dashes, ampersands) will display as normal. Lowercase letters, other punctuation symbols, and ALT key codes, however, are translated into different graphical elements of a credit block, as shown below.
