I need to find a Font that is made up of small dots, I believe they are called Dot-Matrix Fonts, but I have not been able to find the exact right font.
I.e, the number "3" should have a straight horizontal upper line. The Dot Matrix fonts that I've found all have a bent upper curve on the 3.
Or, is there a way to slightly modify an existing font.
Thanks.

Hi Froddanfroddan,

You can modify an existing font but you'll need the right software: Macromedia Fontographer or The Font Creator Program. Add to that some knowledge of vector editing.

Some dot matrix fonts you can check:

Minisystem, by Roy Larabie. A nice clean font and a freebie:

Dot chaos, by Henrik Peterssonn. Another freebie available at:

Good Vibes!
