What is the Stem font?
The thing is that many sans-serif typefaces are usually intended for universal usage. But sometimes faces that work fine in body text look not so good in large point sizes for display purposes when all the contrast in non-contrast sans-serif, or ink traps, become visible to the naked eye.
Every designer solves this problem in his own way. We offer a drastic solution in our Stem: a sans-serif with optical sizing. The first part of the type family, Stem Display, is for use in largest point sizes, from 36 pt indefinitely. Stem Display consists of 12 faces of widths from Hairline to Bold, and it has true italics. The development of Stem type family will include Stem Text for body text and “traditional”, universal use, and Stem Caption for small point sizes. More…
Stem is a geometric sans-serif with semi-closed aperture, large x-height and modern proportions of uppercase letters, like in famous Avenir and Gotham. Its important feature is a professionally designed and carefully tested Cyrillic glyph set.

You're probably thinking - Is Stem available to Download for free?
The short answer is no. Stem 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 Stem, 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 Stem 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 Stem is that you get the license to use it leagally. If you're using an illegal version of Stem and you get caught, you or your client could get into some trouble legally with the publisher of Stem.
Also it is highly unlikely that you'll be able to find Stem for free. Doing various searches on Google such as "Free Stem 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 Stem remember that it's illegal to use a font if you didn't pay for it!
