It’s wedding month at FontShop and we’re highlighting Sudtipos today. The foundry creates lovely fonts that have multiple alternates per character and once you’ve mastered working with scripts you can use Suditpos fonts to their best advantage.
Please note that picking the right script font for design programs is an important part of using Sudtipos fonts. Since all fonts from Sudtipos are PostScript-flavored OpenType, we recommend you use programs that support OpenType features. If you are using programs that are not specifically for design, you will not be able to access the alternate glyphs.

If you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.
Many of the script fonts available on FontShop have contextual alternates, stylistic alternates, or just beautiful swashes in general that would work well for wedding invitations. But how do you know which font to say “I do” to?
If you’re working in Adobe Creative Suite programs (such as InDesign, Illustrator, or Photoshop), you’re in luck. Fonts with lots of contextual and stylistic alternates work well in these programs. To get started, you can browse our Full-Featured Formal Scripts FontList. A typeface like Sudtipos‘ Poem Script Pro has many options to choose from. The uppercase “I” alone has six additional stylistic alternates — you can say “I do” in multiple ways!
Full-featured formal scripts are fun to work with, but only if you’re using them in design programs like Adobe Creative Suite. You can read more on how to access alternates in Photoshop or Illustrator in our Using Type: Contextual Alternates, Ligatures post. If you’re designing your wedding invitations or other materials in different programs like Microsoft Office or iWorks applications, you have to be a bit more choosy. Poem Script has a total of 1,675 glyphs in its character set — some programs just can’t access all of these alternates. Stay tuned for Part 2 of picking script fonts for use in other programs.
