Le Corbusier "Charette" Stencils at ARCH

ARCH has metal Le Corbusier "Charette" stencils straight from Paris! We have number sets and alphabet sets available in a range of sizes from 10mm to 25mm. These are no longer imported to the US, so ARCH is one of the few places they are available. We will only stock them until they are gone, so hurry and snag them while we still have them. 

This font was designed in the early 20th century by architect Le Corbusier to mark his architectural drawings and was named "Charette" (which is a rustic two-wheeled cart in French) by Letraset in the 1970's when they converted the font to be used in their rub-down letters. The stencils, originally made of zinc are now made with aluminum and are just as beautiful as always.
