Charter Serif Font is a transitional serif typeface designed by Matthew Carter in 1987 for Bitstream Inc. The font based on Pierre-Simon Fournier’s characters, originating from the 18th century.

Charter font family includes Regular and Bold weights, including matching Italics. It was designed  as a body text font and remains suitable for printing on both modern high-resolution laser printers and lower resolution printers due to its strong, legible design.
