Here's the word from Merriam-Webster, so to speak (still not laser-beam clear but seems to get there a little better):
: a set of letters, numbers, etc., that are all in the same style and that are used in printing
Full Definition of TYPEFACE
1 : the face of printing type
2 : all type of a single design
: an assortment or set of type or characters all of one style and sometimes one size
