If you were in too much of a food coma over the Thanksgiving weekend and missed some of the typographic food FontShop posted for you, don’t worry — we’ve pinned it.

In our New & Noteworthy board, you can catch up to recent events and our newest fonts from the past week or so. You’ll find that registration for TYPO SF is up and running and that we have some swashtastic new fonts like Fan Script OT from Sudtipos.

We also continue to post more holiday fonts in our Festive Fonts board to help you get started on any holiday greetings you’re designing to send out to friends and family.

Pinterested: New boards this week

Considering Thanksgiving is next week, it should be safe to say that the holidays are near. Some of you may have started shopping for gifts already, some of you may have even finished, but what about those who still like and need to send out holiday greetings via snail mail?

If you’re planning on creating your own holiday cards this season, we have a new board up that might inspire you. Our Festive Fonts board features fonts such as Braga or Maraschino Black that would be great for warming up your loved ones with a letter. Or perhaps you might want to give these fonts as gifts!

See You in 2012!

We hope the season finds you well! FontShop’s office will be closed for the remainder of 2011, but our customer support team will be checking in to help with your requests. If you call us, please leave a message if your issue is urgent and someone will get back to you.

In the meantime, snuggle up with some hot cocoa (or ice tea, for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere) and watch for the conclusion of our Typographic Countdown to the New Year or reread our Best Typefaces of 2011 newsletter.

Need a last minute stocking stuffer? Don’t forget the newly released FF Ernestine ProFF Ernestine Offc Pro and FF Ernestine Web Pro versions are priced at an intro rate through December 31. Or get the design geek in your life a ticket to the upcoming TYPO San Francisco Connect coming this April.

We’ll be back on January 2 with loads of new content and some exciting announcements. Thank you for a great 2011!

Typesgiving

It’s Thanksgiving today in the US, so while us FontShop SF folks are off stuffing ourselves with turkey we thought we’d share what in the type world our social media followers are thankful for this year.

Here’s some of what you shared:

  • “I am thankful for the invention of Futura STD. What a clean Sans Serif font :-)”
  • Franklin Gothic.”
  • Meta. It really does half of the job.”
  • Frutiger.”
  • “For @espiekermann, again and always.”
  • “I give typographic thanks for (slightly) better font-face rendering on IE this year.”
  • “I give typographic thanks for the promise of a new FUSE magazine this year.”
  • “The letter ‘g.'”
  • “Proper kerning.”
