Teeline Fonts is a digital type foundry located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA. Founded in 2010, Teeline’s offerings are modest in number but clever in conception and careful in execution.
Taken from the winter sport of curling, the foundry’s name refers to the line that runs through the center of the house (target) perpendicular to the direction of travel of the thrown stones. A curler who can consistently slide their stone to tee-line depth is a great asset to their team.
Teeline is also the name of a type of British shorthand writing.
