Acapulko is a stunning copperplate script font that embodies the elegance and formality of the 18th century while incorporating modern digital techniques. Created by font designer Arthur Schwarz, this typeface draws inspiration from Charles Snell's drawing, “believer in simple and effective form.” What sets Acapulko apart is its flawless adaptation of curves and strokes to its environment. While traditional copperplate scripts are drawn with a pointed nib pen, Acapulko offers a more versatile and digital approach, resulting in a legible and formal script typeface that is both classic and contemporary. 

This careful – though not quiet – script typeface features a multitude of strong typographic details such as the terminal of ‘s’, 'v’, ‘w’, ‘sf’ and ‘st’ ligatures or even 'a, g, d, q' unconnected strokes. The moderate angle of Acapulko’s letterforms contributes to its soft and smooth curves, making it a pleasure to read and delightful to look at.
