We were very surprised to see people ending up on Wrexham.com after searching for a computer font called Wrexham Script.
We have spoken to Roger White who created the font and asked him why he called it ‘Wrexham Script’ and he told us that he had a request in the early 90s to have a welsh language compatible version of one of his fonts. He created four sets of fonts named after places in Wales, so Cardiff Newport and Wrexham fonts were born – Roger couldn’t remember the fourth!
The sets have extra characters for welsh, such as accented characters, plus just look brilliant!
Roger has now retired from fonts and the like, and has confirmed that he considers the font to be in the public domain.
To download the Wrexham Script Font head over to Roger’s site:
