Spencerian Script

'Spencerian Script' is a time-tested classic developed in 1848 by American educator and handwriting teacher Platt Rogers Spencer. Spencer believed that America needed a style of penmanship that could be written quickly, legibly and elegantly for both business correspondence and personal letter-writing. In 1848, Spencer, along with Victor M. Rice, published Spencer and Rice's System of Business and Ladies' Penmanship.

Old Kinderhook Script

'Old Kinderhook' is used in our Mr. P's 'signature.' It is a historic script inspired by President Martin Van Buren, our Nation's 8th President, and resident of the nearby town of Kinderhook, NY. He earned the nicknames "Little Magician" and the "Red Fox" for his cunning politics. When he was President, Van Buren used a code, 'O.K.' to denote a person who was on the 'inside' and could be trusted. It meant that they were either from 'Old Kinderhook,' or had connections there. The expression 'O.K.' is used all around the world to this day.

This font gives a nod to Old World charm, and is perfect for single letter, double letters with a period in between, but NOT great for 3 letters.
