A set of bitmapped or outline fonts for one or more typefaces contained in a plug-in module for the printer. The fonts are stored in a ROM chip within the cartridge. Font cartridges were used in the 1980s and early 1990s before a worthwhile set of fonts routinely came with every operating system. See cartridge. Contrast with soft font and internal font.
