PG Pixel . . .
'PG Pixel' is a Gurmukhi font that imitates the pixels either on a screen or on a printout of dot-matrix type.
There are essentially two patterns in two pixel shapes with the square shape having two weights making a total of six fonts as you can see on the right.
The 11 fonts are based on a cell size of 1x1 pixel and the 21 fonts are based on a 2x1 cell size which manifest themselves in the forms you can see on the right.
The square fonts (S and SL) are like either the square pixels on a screen or the square heat cells on a thermal printer whereas the circular fonts (R) are like the pins on a dot-matrix printer.
The square fonts have two options: a normal one (S) where each square occupies 75 per cent of the area for each picture element (pixel); and, a light version (SL) where each square occupies 44 per cent of the area for each picture element.
The S version occupies 130x130 out of 150x150 units which gives a nice solid letter form but the SL version occupies 100x100 out of 150x150 units so it has a vertical and horizontal 2/3 coverage which, if you are trying to get
a raster to have nice, neat borders, you might find works better at small letter sizes.
Whichever you choose for your application, you can add noise to modulate the outlines as you can see if you click on the image below that has a light background.
