Waite Park JNL is a display sans font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Jeff Levine Fonts.
Waite Park JNL is based on the smallest of the die-cut letters and numbers contained in the Webway Sign Cabinet - once manufactured by the Holes-Webway Company of Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The largest of the setâ€™s sizes (2 inch) was the model for [LINK: /fonts/jnlevine/sign-kit/] Sign Kit JNL, the medium size (1-1/8 inch) was used to make [LINK: /fonts/jnlevine/sign-production/] Sign Production JNL and this font is a version from the 3/4 inch size.
Each size of alphabet and numerals have their own unique characteristics, although they all follow the same basic font style, which is reminiscent of classic Art Deco-era sanserif typefaces.
The name Waite Park JNL was derived from a division of Holes-Webway that (for some reason lost to time) distributed their sign kits under the name Waite Park Sign Company, located in the Minnesota city of the same name.
