Buyer’s Guide: New Product Pages

Our last installment of the new product page series is here. With features that incorporate elements from the Fonts Like This Tab , the Related Tab will help you find the perfect alternate. Let’s go over the two options you have in the tab; Similar and FontList.

The Similar section will recommend alternate fonts that have related qualities. For popular typefaces, like Neue Helvetica, you may see suggestions that that are curated by FontShop’s experts first.

new_product_similar

 

If the product you selected appears in a FontList, then that list will show in Related Tab’s FontList section.

new_product_FontList

We hope this makes licensing a font easier on FontShop.

If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.
