MFF Adami (Miscellaneous Fun Fonts) is the Punjabi take on the popular Adamski font that can still be seen being used in contemporary work, even now - the font is many years old.
The basic font is a bold, Helvetica-style font - here, I have used Gurvetica - and all of the internal curves are angular and straight - as though somebody who wasn't too good at cutting re-entrant curves
was give the job of making letters with some thick card and a pair of scissors.
Whilst there is nothing wrong with using the font on its own, as at the top of the page, it is fairly easy to make it stand out and here, I have simulated a variable drop shadow by i-warping a black copy
of the letters.
I have also highlighted and darkened the lettering a little to simulate an uneven surface.
Here, you can see how you can modify the default ascii adhak by adding two hash marks after the tilde character so that where there is already plenty of space, you can remove the small piece of bar so that
the characters close up together better. You can also do this using the grave character instead of the '~##' but the location of this on the keyboard is not always that obvious - if it is even there. Also,
by just adding two hash marks to the tilde, if you decide that it is not what you want, you can easily delete them and get your original adhak.
If you use the grave character, you don't have to
substitute it with the tilde to change it back to the adhak with the bit of base line under it, you can simply add two hash marks to that.
Note that you can see that there are normal Latin numbers in the ASCII range as well as the Gurmukhi numbers in their normal place within the Gurmukhi range.
If you are using the ASCII keyboard and need to have the Gurmukhi number characters instead of the Latin number characters, you can access them by adding two hash marks after each Latin number character
as you can see in the image on the right.
Also note that there are symbols for Rupee and Euro as well as the regular ones for Pound and Dollar/Cent.
