Bulblamp is a 12 component font system that can be layered in different ways to create endless classic titling effects used commonly in signage by skilled sign painters and sign makers and any who interested in simple and flexible ways to make graphic design.
Each file is named according to its purpose. The figure indicates the recommended order of the layers. 1 below, 5 on top. 1 means you should place it first. Of course, you do not have to use all the fonts, and vice versa – you can repeatedly use the same font style with different styles.
