Scratchpad is an inline font adapted from our Verbal Cues family which is based on old comic book hand lettering. As these fonts are versions of the fonts in Verbal Cues which is one of our comic book lettering families, we have maintained the characters which will allow you to make your Comic Book heros gasp and hiccup. The traditional way for a comic artist to indicate that Superman or Charlie Brown was making a non-vocal sound through a body orifice, was to surround the word (which described that sound) with a special set of quotation marks. In the PC version of this font family the style names are slightly different from those used in the Mac versions. But the fonts are otherwise identical.
