We don’t just pin cool things to one board every week. While our New & Noteworthy and Ideas & Inspiration pinboards are good places to start for eye candy, don’t forget about our other boards that might help you get through a case of the Mondays or an uneventful Friday night. Check out:

  • Lettering: Because handmade creations aren’t dead! Handcrafted words are still very much alive.
  • Character Studies: Find personalities in different individual glyphs!
  • Swashbuckers: Swoon over beautiful curves left and right.

Pinterested: Typography 101

We have lots of typography boards on Pinterest and it’s easy to get lost in them. But one of the most important boards is our Typography 101 pinboard — it’s a place where you’ll learn about fonts and using type! Those who are new to the world of typography, those who dabble, design students and professionals should bookmark this board; we’ll be continuing to expand this board with lots of great information from David’s Using Type series to other fun facts and important tidbits from our Buyer’s Guide series on licensing and finding fonts.

This week, we have one new Pinterest board that focuses on a FontFont. The super family of FF Clan is showcased in various uses in our In Your Face: FF Clan pinboard, from its thin weights to its ultra weights. We love FF Clan since it’s such a versatile typeface — it’s also the official typeface of TYPO!

Have you seen FF Clan in use in your city?

For those of you who just can’t get enough of our Best of 2012 newsletter, we’ve pinned our top type for you to like and repin over and over again into as many of your own pinboards as you see fit. Our Best Typefaces of 2012 pinboard showcases the top 30 fonts on FontShop that made their debut last year from FF Chartwell to Quatro Sans to Romeo & Julieta. Get lost in the beautiful pastel samples of some of the best fonts from 2012 — this time, it’s ok to dwell on the past and reminisce through a yearbook-style list of typefaces that we’ll love for years to come.

If you missed out on the actual newsletter, be sure to check it out and find short ‘n’ sweet handwritten notes from other fonts!

Typographic Pinspiration of 2012

We started pinning back in July and have, since then, created almost 50 unique boards full of typographic eye candy. As 2012 comes to a close, here are some of our favorite pinboards:

pinterest-deliciousboards

The most delicious of them all. We have many tasty type samples up on Pinterest divided between various food-themed pinboards. From Edible Type to Savory Stems to SweetShop, you’ll find letters crafted from cookies and pancake mix to tempting fonts like Chocolate and Candy Script. Let your computer gain the holiday weight this season with more fonts!

pinterest-inyourfaceboards

The boards that get In Your Face. We dedicated a few boards to some of our popular FontFonts. FF Chartwell was an exciting new release for us this year, FF Mister K was one of many TDC Typeface Design Winners for 2012, and FF DIN is one of our top bestsellers. Learn more about these faces by checking out their spotlights on Pinterest!

pinterest-geekyboards2012The geeky side of FontShop. Here at FontShop, we geek out about more than just fonts. Our nerdiest pinboards reflect this best — we’ve expressed our love for videos games, the cosmos, and Middle Earth through typography. Explore the 8-bit overworlds of Mario and Zelda with pixel fonts on our Like A Boss board, relive Curiosity’s amazing landing on Mars with our Spacing Out board, and journey to the Shire with uncial fonts and beautiful photography from fStop Images on our Keep Calm & Hobbiton board.

Aside from our themed boards, don’t forget about some of our 2012 events: examine the decathlon competition and results from the Fontlympics and be thankful you’re still alive by taking a look at the fonts that were included from the Mayan Calendar Countdown. And to get you pumped up for our Best of 2012, browse through our Best Typefaces of 2011 pinboard while you wait!

Have any plans today? Be sure to review your alphabet with the Mayan Countdown Calendar pinboard today! There are 26 fonts for you to choose from; if you’re planning on making a large sign for the end of the world, many of the fonts chosen for the typographic Mayan Calendar are display faces that would be appropriate for setting a “THE END OF THE WORLD IS NEAR” sign to walk around with or post in your window. Alternatively, if you’re still looking for fonts to design some last-minute holiday cards with, you’ll find Krul, Dulcinea, and Futura Script on this list as well.

Quick! Which fonts would you want to snag before the end of the world?

pinterest-hobbiton This week, we have one new board that’ll take you into a whole new (or perhaps familiar to some?) world filled with greenery. In honor of the first installment of Bilbo Baggins’ adventures, our Keep Calm & Hobbiton pinboard steps into Middle Earth and offers a piece of the Shire during this holiday season!

pinterest-hobbiton2

Not only will you find uncial fonts such as Electric Typographer’s Abelard & Troubador, but images of lush foliage, mushrooms (among halflings’ favorite things!), and misty mountains from fStop Images may take you on an unexpected journey. Adventure through Middle Earth by way of typography and discover great faces such as Lombardic Capitals and Elizabeth. Remember to Keep Calm & Hobbiton!

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!

Our very own FontShopper, Theresa, recently came back from a trip to the UK — along the way, she snapped some typographic memories in London and Edinburgh. We have two new boards up this week — Type Travels: Hello, London! and Type Travels: Hello, Edinburgh! — that show some of the things she spotted during her trip.

Much like our own home here in San Francisco, seeing chalkboard lettering and handmade signage is not uncommon in both London and Edinburgh. Of her journey, Theresa notes:

“In London, I saw a lot of hand-painted signs and hand-lettering for shops, markets, and the Bloomsbury Festival. And I loved walking through Edinburgh’s Old Town which is filled with engravings that have lasted for hundreds of years. I really should have allotted more time for the British Library though — that place is a goldmine. I could have spent an entire day in there just looking at their stamp collection — too bad you can’t take photos, so you’ll just have to believe me and go yourself!”

If you’ve been thinking of traveling, maybe you should check out some of Theresa’s typographic pictures on Pinterest — that may sway you to fly overseas!

If you didn’t go out trick-or-treating on Halloween or you need a break from eating all the candy you did pick up, we have a sweet board up this week on Pinterest for you.

Our SweetShop pinboard will make you crave confectioneries with bright and sugary photos from fStop and fun fonts available on FontShop. From candy-coated letters like Candy Bits from Bitstream to Candy Script‘s mouth-watering swashes from Sudtipos, discover treats that won’t give you toothaches!
