Border and Ornament Fonts













You can try out a sample border font for free. Click here to download the working trial version of Page Rules for either WINDOWS or MacOS

One of the traditions in type design over the years has been the production of specialty type of printers ornaments, rules and borders to help offset and balance text on a page. When working with wood and metal type before the digital age, typesetters found these specialty fonts extremely useful.  Sadly this is one area in which modern digital fontography has lagged behind. With this new collection of border, rule and ornament fonts we hope to address that sad shortcoming.

This package includes four entirely new fonts, plus some older fonts which fit the category. Many of the fonts form continuous borders or even complete frames, while others have ornaments or are designed to produce rules which delineate part of a page or divide sections. They include original designs, printers ornaments and rules from the 18th and 19th century, some nice Victorian period decorations, and our popular Celtic Borders font based on Celtic manuscript borders. Included among the new fonts are the Caswallon Ornaments font designed to go with our Caslon script font, plus a new 19th century rule font, an 18th century borders font and a Victorian border font. It’s quite a selection.

The Borders, Rules and Ornaments collection is available on CD or online for
just $59. You can call to purchase the package from our online ordering system. Just CLICK HERE
