Hi Guys.

I have a great KENNER logo, but is there such a thing as a Kenner Font ?

I've had a good search, but not sure what it would be called to search for


Any help appreciated.

Many thanks. -Nik

If there is, it's most likely a custom font. I wouldn't be completely shocked if someone out there has developed a full set of characters in the Kenner style.

Hi Nik,
I'm almost sure they used a regular serif typeface wich they
made unique by adding the "shadow" and the curl on the K.

I hav'nt been able to find the exact typeface but I've used both
an Ultracondensed Bold Garamond and a Condensed Bold Caslon BE
wich both are quite close. Then I have added the shadow and the curl.

Here are some old experiments:



If you have a Mac I'll gladly send some typefaces to you, just lmk...

Nope, you sure can't say qwinky-[censored] on these boards. People have been excommunicated for saying less.

Many have PMed me about the fonts and I'll be happy to send them to
you but I just want to clearify one thing about the fonts before I do.

The ones I have are plain fonts, very similiar to e.g. Times New Roman.
They look like this when you install them and type:


If you want them to look like a Kenner logo you have to use photoshop or Illustrator.
Here's a "make your own Kenner font" step-by-step course



1. Type what you want in a serif font that looks like Kenners. If its not condensed enough, squeeze it horizontal.

2. Add a "Kenner curl" to the capital letter

3. Make a blue (100% cyan) thick outline

4. Add a blue drop shadow and add a ® in e.g. Arial or Helvetica

Congratulations! You have now created your own logo in true Kenner style


If someone can encode a typeface please contact me because I could easily
draw a alphabet in true Kenner style. Capital letters with the "curl" and the
lower cases without...

Kenner Logo Font duplication

Mattias,

Could you help me with making a logo? I would gladly pay you for doing it for me. What I would like it to say is TeXas T Customs with the curl on both capital T's....the X is also capital but not sure if a curl would look good on it too. Might try it both ways and see which looks better. And will gladly pay you for your time. I was wanting for my TeXas T Customs action figure business cards. Maybe you can send a photoshop file to me if you decide to help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. my email address is empireblisters@hotmail.com thanks so much. I tried to PM you but it said your inbox was full that you had to delete some before I could send. Thanks man and I look forward to your reply. Cheers mate!

This thread is 10 years old and like most of the long-time vintage collectors, it's been years since Mattias was a regular fixture here. Most of the vintage hobby discussion has migrated to Facebook.

Yes I realized how old it was but thought I’d try anyway. I saw Mattias replied to a different post recently so I gave it a try. I appreciate your help and found him on Instagram and reached out that way. I’m Loki g for anyone that could help with a logo. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. Cheers!

Todd - I've just done a custom Kenner logo, and I think I could help you out - if you still need it that is. Let me know, Doug.
