We are pleased to introduce Irma Screen.

Irma Screen is designed to work equally well on paper and the computer screen. It is available in TrueType format only and has been specially optimised for exceptional readability on laptops, desktops, mobile devices and other digital displays.

This small family of two weights combines art, craft and engineering to achieve crystal-clear results using a sophisticated system of hinting instructions (adjustments that modify the fonts at screen resolutions for maximum legibility). Irma Screen has been hinted both for the ClearType and Grey-Scale rasterisers, ensuring that the fonts work well on both LCD and CRT monitors.

All 1326 glyphs in Irma Screen Pro were hinted, so Russian and Greek (and any of its other supported languages) look as good as English.

Hinting Type
Following our new system for identifying hinting type, Irma Screen has been hinted in both directions (Horizontal & Vertical) for the Grey-scale and ClearType rendering.
