Mark Your Calendar! June is Wedding Month at FontShop

weddingmonth-savethedate300You are cordially invited to celebrate Wedding Month at FontShop throughout June 2013.

We often get requests from brides, wedding planners, etc. for help picking out just the right typeface(s) to represent that special day. In response, we’ve decided to dedicate a month of our blog to addressing various aspects of wedding collateral design.

Whether it’s invites, placecards, and/or websites for a traditional or non-traditional celebration we’ve got you covered in our regular series. Tune in Mondays for nuptial-focused Buyer’s Guide, Wednesdays for Great Pairs, and Thursdays for Using Type. We’ll also of course be creating some lovely Pinterest boards and calling out any new fonts that would work well to showcase your everlasting love.

Additionally we’ll be hosting two contests for a chance for both designers and couples to build up their font registries. Stay tuned for details.

The fun starts Monday, June 3rd right here on the FontShop Blog. We can’t wait to celebrate our love of fonts with you!

Don’t Miss the Fontlympics!

We hear there’s some big event kicking off in London this Friday (no, not TYPO London – but you can win a conference ticket for October 19-20). Getting in the spirit of international competition, we’re holding a coinciding event – The 2012 Fontlympics — a celebration of fonts and their many feats!

Catch a preview in last week’s newsletter and make sure to subscribe to future issues to catch all of the events. Watch our TwitterFacebook, and Pinterest as we spotlight our typographic competitors over the 16 days of the games. And you will not want to miss staying tuned to the blog for a special interactive competition.

That’s right, beginning Monday, July 30 and ending Friday, August 10 the FontShop blog will host the Fontlympic Decathlon, pitting five typefaces against each other throughout 10 events. Vote each weekday for the best face in each event and help us determine the best all-around typeface.

Let the games begin!
