Prestige Elite, also known simply as Prestige or Elite, is a monospaced typeface.

It was created by Clayton Smith in 1953 for IBM. Along with Courier, it was extremely popular for use in electric typewriters, especially the IBM Selectric. Unlike Courier, however, its popularity has not extended into the computer age; while Prestige software fonts can be obtained, they are not in wide use.
