Buyer’s Guide: TrueType works with Macs

Some fonts on FontShop are unfortunately only available in PostScript and TrueType formats. While we generally recommend not purchasing PostScript fonts whenever possible, we understand that Mac users may be concerned about compatibility — don’t worry, TrueType works with Macs!

Although during checkout, the format options may be noted as “PC TrueType”, this format is in fact compatible with Macs. Mac users can install TrueType fonts on their computers. If you’re a Mac user running OSX, we recommend purchasing TrueType instead of Mac PostScript if OpenType is not an option since PostScript is a legacy format that may cause issues on newer computers. TrueType files end in .ttf which you can install and use on Macs.

Next week, we’ll go over the differences of the formats — stay tuned!
