Fonts

More commonly known as a collection of Typefaces.

Fonts, like any other resource in sign making is a valuable tool that, used correctly, can enhance any sign job.

There are plenty of free font sites that contain many and varied designs and styles.

It should be remembered though that not all fonts are free.

Sites like www.myfonts.com ,www.letterheadfonts.com or www.signdna.com/v2/index.php have an endless range to choose from at all price ranges. There are many more.

Font Piracy is something that is discouraged by professional designers and sign makers alike. A font is a design, and is copyrighted by the original designer. There are no hard and fast rules on pricing, but it is usually determined by public demand and competition in the market place.

Most fonts are sold through recognized font resellers. It pays to shop around.

Computer Typefaces have evolved quite a lot over the last decade.
