Or, without going into editing, you can do it directly. However, alas, I don't know a way of specifying the font just once. I suppose with copy and paste, it's not that time-consuming, but it does look ugly as code:

sysuse auto
scatter mpg weight, xlabel(2000 `"{fontface "American Typewriter": 2,000}"'  ///
	3000 `"{fontface "American Typewriter": 3,000}"'  ///
	4000 `"{fontface "American Typewriter": 4,000}"'  ///
	5000 `"{fontface "American Typewriter": 5,000}"',labsize(medlarge))

Note that since the font name is in quotes, the entire text has to be in compound double quotes: `" and "'
