Worked my way through this and it also gave me some ideas. Given the theme of the nerf blaster is based on Fotnite, perhaps I could find a font online I could use for this project.
A small issue though: this one is bi-colour as it has a yellow strip along the top, so pay attention to what you're buying. Its no big deal though.
To wrap this up, I managed to get a Bitmap of the Nerf logo on the display.
