With all of the letter and number options available from Stahls’ it’s easy to combine pre-cut and pre-spaced numbers to create a winning number team. Several pre-spaced fonts are modified versions of our most popular pre-cut fonts; by combining the two you can easily create eye-catching two and three-color numbers.
Team US and Varsity fonts are available in fade and pinstripe pre-spaced styles. Simply place a pre-cut number as a background, with a corresponding fade or pinstripe font as the foreground, for cool new number effects. In the example shown here, black Varsity pre-cut numbers are used as a background, while orange Varsity Fade pre-spaced numbers are the foreground. A similar effect can be achieved by pairing Titan pre-cuts with Titan Stenciled or Titan Striped pre-spaced numbers.
Another winning team pairs pre-cuts with gap outline pre-spaced numbers. Gap outline Pro Block, Team US, and Varsity fonts are available in pre-spaced numbers. Create a three-color effect by removing the center digit from a gap outline pre-spaced number and aligning a corresponding pre-cut number.
In the example below, the center digits are removed from a yellow Pro Block Gap Outline pre-spaced number and replaced with white Pro Block pre-cut numbers. On a black jersey, the gap outline helps create a three-color yellow, black, and white number.
