"Columbia Titling" on sale at MyFonts ($8 for the family!)


My new typeface, "Columbia Titling", is now on sale at MyFonts and for a limited time is just $8 for four weights!

Columbia Titling is an titling-caps display family based on wide Clarendon-style wood type and industrial signage design from the late-19th and early-20th Century. It includes a small set of OpenType features, including both tabular and proportional figures, special superscript ordinal suffixes, underlined superscript alternate letters, and OpenType fractions. The typeface takes its name from the historic S.S. Columbia, a steamboat launched in 1903. Though not a true reproduction, the wide, slab serif letterforms on the front of the Columbia's wheelhouse provided some inspiration for to develop this typeface. Enjoy!

Transferring ownership of a typeface currently distributed as free


A few years ago I designed a typeface called Half Cut Gothic and made it available for free at Dafont and FontSpace, but now a marketing firm here in Canada has contacted me regarding "ownership purchase". Considering it has been available for free for so long, how is it possible to change that? If copyright-wise this is even possible, how much do you think would be a fair price? ...Anything else I should be wary of?

They don't seem too concerned about the freeware part. Quote:
