Let’s begin with a promise:
Perfect lettering with speed and ease – this is the advantage of a Leroy lettering set. The precision of Leroy lettering lends distinctions to your drawings. The ease with which it can be applied removes a tedious detail from drafting routine.
This guarantee, first made by New York-based drafting supply company Keuffel & Esser in 1918, was quite dramatic, if for no other reason than at that time, and really for most people for a lot of human existence, the chief way to communicate across long distances was the hand-written document.
For thousands of years, scratching marks on a surface was an effort to speak not only across distances, but also across time. Illegibility was, of course, the Lex Luthor of such communication.
