selling a font
0

Hey all.

I am a new font designer (though not new to the art of typography) and I have recently finished creating my first completed font. It's a TrueType font. It's a highly original and stylish display type of font.

Anyway, I was thinking I was gonna try to make some money with it, and was wondering if anyone out there could offer some guidance and advice. Anything I should know about finding and working with a distributor? Do I need to make them sign something to keep from getting ripped off if they prove to be scandalous? (I'm always suspicious I guess)

I'd rather not have to market it myself even if I had my own website, setting up a shopping cart system etc..

Thanks in advance.

You will have more feedback if you move the thread to General Discussion.

If you search typophile a great deal has been said on this subject. Just go looking.

MyFonts and Fontspring are the way to go. Easy to work with, a high royalty rate, and they sell more fonts than the vendors with lower royalty rates.
