What is the Red Tape font?

Red Tape is three fonts that were designed by sticking letters together with red tape.
It makes for a wonderful makeshift set of fonts. And I really enjoyed sticking those letters together. Of course I did it on screen using bits and pieces of scanned red tape.
Just use it as you like, I won’t give you any red tape in how to use the fonts. More…
»Red Tape« is since February 2012 on permanent display in the »German National Library« – next to the likes of »Bodoni«, »Garamond« and »Helvetica« – being part of the exhibition about type through the ages.
Your (now a little famous) unproblematic type designer, Gert.

Are you looking for a free download of Red Tape? Most of the fonts on are premium, which means Red Tape is not a free font.

You won't find Red Tape as a free download, so I would advise you just to go ahead and pay for it and download Red Tape HERE. You can find some other great options here on as well that will save you time looking around all over the web.

It is always best to pay for a premium font rather than trying to find an illegal download. The benefits of paying for Red Tape are that you get the license, and if you're caught using it illegally there could be some potential legal implications with the publisher of this particular typeface.

Furthermore, when searching "free downloads" on Google, most websites will say they have them but these types of offers usually come at a cost - either something like high-pressure sales tactics or getting tricked into downloading malware onto your computer by malicious third parties who want access to all your personal information!

It's just too risky going about finding free fonts online.

If you really want Red Tape and you want to truly own it the legal and safe way, then click here to visit the download and purchase page on Here you will be able to obtain the proper license. The designer and publisher deserves to be paid for their work, as they have put in the hours and the creativity to produce such an amazing font. Good luck with your purchase and future use of this font. :)
