What is the Red Tape font?

Red Tape is three fonts that were designed by sticking letters together with red tape.
It makes for a wonderful makeshift set of fonts. And I really enjoyed sticking those letters together. Of course I did it on screen using bits and pieces of scanned red tape.
Just use it as you like, I won’t give you any red tape in how to use the fonts. More…
»Red Tape« is since February 2012 on permanent display in the »German National Library« – next to the likes of »Bodoni«, »Garamond« and »Helvetica« – being part of the exhibition about type through the ages.
Your (now a little famous) unproblematic type designer, Gert.

You're probably thinking - Is Red Tape available to Download for free?

The short answer is no. Red Tape is definitely not available as a free download font. This is a premium font which mean that you will have to pay to download and use it in your project. We showcase fonts on SharedFonts that are almost all premium fonts. Feel free to waste valuable hours of your time searching for a free download of Red Tape, but take it from me, you will not be successful in your quest. Just think how much time and effort you will save if you just pay for Red Tape and be done with it.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Red Tape is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Red Tape and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Red Tape. Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Red Tape for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Red Tape Download" you will see a lot of websites that will say "Free Download" but these are just attempts to get you to click on a link which will either take you to an ad landing page or you risk getting viruses on your computer. In the rare occasion that you do find a free download for Red Tape remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!

The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
