Overview

House Styles are a combination of font and layout resources that streamline form production. Instead of the traditional time‑consuming method of manipulating type and graphics as separate elements, we build forms using our exclusive coding system. Advantages include consistency of design, speed of production and more efficient editing.

Presented on this page are some of our most commonly‑used house styles from an exclusive library of 60+. As our form design styles share the same metrics it is also possible to use more than one style in the same form project.

Extend Light

Extend Light is one of our most-used house styles. This style features perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms. Extend Light combines seamlessly with Monobox Light where inputs with specific formats or character counts are required.

Extend Light

Extend Regular

Extend Regular usues a thicker stroke width than Extend Light and is suitable for introducing solid or tinted colours. As with Extend Light, it snaps to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms. Extend Regular combines seamlessly with Monobox Regular where inputs with specific formats or character counts are required

This style features perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12pt to 15pt. Monobox Light can be used seamlessly with other styles where inputs with specific formats or character counts are required.

The elegance and simplicity of Linear Light makes it a very versatile style. This style features perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms.

Linear Regular

Linear Regular uses a thicker stroke width than Linear Light and is suitable for introducing solid or tinted colours for added variation. This style features perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms. Linear Regular combines seamlessly with Monbox Regular for numeric entry and Opaque No.1/No.2 where input fields require highlighting.

Linear Regular

Opaque No.1/2

Opaque No.1/No.2 are elegant and versatile styles that use tinted solid fields. These styles offer a solution to text and numeric fields without lines or boxed elements. Changing the tint values on alternate lines creates a pleasing analogue effect that assists with usability. The Opaque styles feature perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms.

Opaque No.1/2

Linear + Opaque

The simplicity of Linear Light is an ideal starting point for form design. As house styles use the same metics, it is possible to use more than one style in a form project. In this example, it was important to let users know that some fields on a printed form were mandatory.
The solution was to augment Linear Light with Opaque No.2, effectively adding light blue highlights to the white (top) sheet of a printed NCR form. The remaining copies were printed in black only.

Linear + Opaque

Ditto Regular

Ditto is a variant of Linear Regular and is a less formal alternative to boxed styles. Like Linear Regular, Ditto uses a thicker stroke width and is suitable for introducing solid or tinted colours for added variation.This style features perfect alignment to 3pt horizontal increments and is generally used for line heights of 12 to 21pt, the latter being suitable for accessible manual entry forms.
