I am writing to ask anyone interested in engraving, and those who participate in "social media" to help spread the word about my new kickstarter project to fund the West Coast book tour for The Complete Engraver.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1872144378/engraving-for-nerds-ii-we...

The rewards are pretty juicy:

- Jessica Hische's new font, Minot (Jessica's a young, hot design diva)
- Be a member of the VIP team for the engraving day at the International Printing History Museum in carson, CA
- Beta test and be the first 5 to get the new engraving app being developed
- Get the first ever engraving app we are developing after in launches
- Engraved, custom monogram notes.

The two fonts developed by Monotype based on old engraver's lettering styles were given honorable mention on Stephen Coles' http://typographica.org/typeface-reviews/2012-honorable-mentions/

JMC and Feldman Engraver are based on Masterplate styles from the American stationery engraver's industry, and were developed by Steve Matteson and Terrance Weinzeirl, of Monotype. Go team!

Both fonts are FREE!

These fonts were made possible for the launch of The Complete Engraver by this writer. http://www.papress.com/html/book.details.page.tpl?isbn=9781616890674

Opinions needed: Letterpress t-shirt

My venture TypographyShop is reprinting our "Letterpress" tee, which has been a minor hit in the lead community. The current design is on the woman in the image below.

A purist pointed out however, that the copy block should be upside down, as it's done when type is hand set. Do you feel we should offer that as an option as in the mock up on the male below?

Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Lost Hand Written Font

We are looking for a font for a new client that they have been using. Anyone know which font this is or could suggest anything very similar.

Thanks in advance.

I'm at such a loss looking for the font from this sample. We are talking hours. I am grateful if you know of something close that I can cobble together a few words for a new project that is due soon. Disregard the cap "P" and "B" open stems if they aren't in your findings. Any ideas? Thanks!

help finding font

i am working in a digital design class, i am trying to find the cover font, not the logo, to the rolling stone magazine with marilyn manson on the cover. the issue number is 797. i need the font style to create a faux mag cover.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Does the world really need one more vernacular pop culture typeface? We here, at astroluxtype shout a resounding yes!

Sure, you can find the apex of fine font design that will have your mind and eyes burst with joy at the level of sophistication and craftsmanship they exhibit- Koo Koo Puff Condensed and Light Condensed are not one of those fonts. But if kooky goofy is your thing, we're selling it at the astroluxtype booth.

Update: Blocking spam and spammers

We're trying out several new automatic spam prevention tools. It's quite possible that you won't notice a thing. However, as we fine-tune how sensitive to make the filters, legitimate content might accidentally get flagged as spam. If so, bear with us. Once we've dialed it in, it will run smoothly behind the scenes and your Typophile experience will remain spam-free.

I need help!
I'm creating a website/social networking resource and I am designing a logo. I found a font that I like for free from a website and want to use just one letter "s" for my logo. I will not be selling the logo or distributing the font in any way, just want to have a clean logo for my website/potentially more than that in the future.

1) can I do this?
2) can I customize the logo in photoshop or something and tweak it to make it original and use that?
3)if not, what steps do I need to take in order to do this legitimately?

Any help or advice would be extremely appreciated guys!

Title Case vs. Sentence case

Is there any research regarding the use of Title Case in headlines? I am currently doing work for a company that uses title case throughout its web site, on all headlines and subheads, and I find it unnecessary and more difficult to read than sentence case. I especially think that title case is not necessary when it's a complete sentence. But that's just my opinion. Thanks!

Hi my friends, today I have a question for you, WHAT IS YOUR OPINION of this f-i ?
the language is catalan, and the meaning of the word FINNISIM in english is FINE in spanish is FINISIMO (more easy to traslate)
I attach the pic only of the word, and also attach the pic with the context of the text,
I was read a book, and can see this kind of ligature, very particular.
