Help me name my e-zine (contest)
0

I am planning to do a type & graphic design e-newsletter, distributed by e-mail to subscribers.
The content will be :

  • type tips and tricks
  • tidbits from the type & design world
  • updates and new releases of Alphabet Design fonts

I already have an e-newsletter called alfaBITS geared towards the general business audience with tips on marketing, managing, etc.

The winning entry will receive a collection of Alphabet Design fonts worth $100. Two runners-up will each receive a single font.

Please visit www.alphabet-design.com

Thanks!

I was going to suggest Fontastic but it's taken.

So is "Just My Type" FUN quiz there.

I've always wanted to use Case & Point for something but some law firm uses it for software and has it locked down.

I suppose that would work too. Isn't that German for letter or something like that?

shrift
Pronunciation: (shrift), [key]
—n. Archaic.
1. the imposition of penance by a priest on a penitent after confession.
2. absolution or remission of sins granted after confession and penance.
3. confession to a priest.
