The DIN font family is generally characterized by old-school lettering – understandable, due to its early German origins – a primitive style based on geometric shapes, with the characters defined by long, crisp strokes. In a sharp deviation from that general categorization, the DIN Schablonierschrift typeface is based wholly on stencil sets.
The only similarity this font shares with other fonts of the DIN family is that they are all sans serif typefaces. The DIN Schablonierschrift is so fresh, and looks so different that it hardly seems possible to belong to the DIN family. Its base, however, remains the same – geometric shapes with long strokes and fluent curves. The stencil effect makes this font very popular, especially for use in headlines.
The DIN Schablonierschrift is essentially a very simple font, which also makes it very attention-grabbing. One noteworthy trait of this typeface is that it contains only uppercase letters and numbers, as well as a few punctuation marks.
