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.

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

We hope this makes licensing a font easier on FontShop.

Buyer’s Guide: New Product Pages

Welcome to the second part of our new product page series. Last week we reviewed two features, the sample text tool bar and buying options, on FontShop. This week we’ll take a look at the Glyph Tab using Gordon by Letterbox as an example.

The Character Set option allows you to view the all the glyphs available in a specific font. A small arrow will appear in a glyph’s box if there are alternates characters for that glyph. You can click on the arrow to preview the alternates.

The Language Support option will show you all of the languages that the font will support. Typically fonts will support common languages like Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, German, and Spanish.

Now you know where to find out if a font has contextual alternates and supports a specific language. If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.
