Buyer’s Guide: FontFont’s App+ Brings New Choices!

Last week we introduced a new license called App+ and this changed how FontFonts appear and are licensed throughout the site. These options will appear after you’ve chosen a specific product from the list that search returns to you. FF GOOD will be our chosen font for today, so let’s go over the basic changes that you’ll see.


Select Format

When you’ve found the package that appeals to you just click on product’s name. You’ll see the available formats which typically include OpenType, Web, Office, and App+. Clicking on any of these links will take to you the product page. For this example we’ll choose OpenType for the FF Good Collection.



You will only have this option for FontFonts, all other foundries will have an “Add” button instead. Anytime you choose “Update” we will give you several options to add different formats to your cart.


Which format of FF Good Collection do you need?

Since we initially choose OpenType for FF Good, that option is preselected. Licensing a mix of OpenType, Office, and Web will take 10% off those products. You can even add an App+ license!

We hope you like the new options and if you have additional questions you can always email FontShop’s Support Team for help.

Buyer’s Guide: Will FF Chartwell work for me?

While FF Chartwell is a really cool font that you might want, it is also one of the most complex fonts we have available on FontShop — you may need to do a bit of research before and after licensing this font.

The #1 question you should ask yourself before buying and downloading FF Chartwell is: what program do I intend to use the font in?

If you’ll be using the font in design programs (such as Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop), you’re usually good to go. As long as the program can handle stylistic sets and contextual alternates, you’ll be able to use FF Chartwell. Of course, there are exceptions: most notably, color versions do not work when using QuarkXPress. Also, FF Chartwell Bars and FF Chartwell Bars Vertical are the only styles that are currently compatible with iWorks.

One of the best things you can do before getting your hands on this particular typeface is to read the FF Chartwell User Manual. FontFont has also dedicated a few pages on using FF Chartwell, including a video on How to Use FF Chartwell.

howtouseffchartwellOur type expert, David, also put together a series last year on using FF Chartwell, which you can find collected on our In Your Face: FF Chartwell Pinterest board.

Staff Picks, January 2013

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:


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!


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!

Pinterested: New pins this week


This week, we have a bunch of colorful new pins that will pick up your holiday spirit! You’ll find lots of vivid type samples in our New & Noteworthy board from our latest FontFont release. Check out new fonts like FF Videtur and updated fonts like FF Netto or FF Quadraat Sans.


If you’re pinning your wishlist for this holiday season, be sure to pin the typefaces you love so that others know what fonts to buy for you! You can also pin how to buy fonts for others so your loved ones can license you correctly for all the new fonts you want.

Stay tuned next week for a special new board you’ll be Shire to like!

Pinterested: New boards this week

Raise your hand if you like handmade type! We created two new boards on Pinterest this week that tie in with our Typographic Trend this week.

As our font expert, David, mentioned in his Typographic Trend post yesterday, some fonts are influenced by actual handwriting. Our In Your Face: FF Mister K board puts the spotlight on one of our own FontFonts that falls into this category of “handmade” type. FF Mister K is a family of four that was inspired by the handwriting of writer Franz Kafka. Check out the different cuts of FF Mister K on FontShop!

We also pinned a different approach to what “handmade” type can mean. On our Getting Out Of Hand board, you’ll find a collection of type and images and designs made out of hands or done on hands. You’ll find words spelled out in sign language and also letters shaped with fingers.

Can you handle our new boards this week?
