A Special Offer on Our Font Club

As a special offer to round out the fall, we’re offering a one-time discount on new and renewal memberships in our Font Club. The Font Club is a unique subscription service where you get the complete versions of each of our featured new font releases as they are released, including both the True Type and Postscript Versions for Windows and MacOS.

Since we release two new featured fonts each month, this means that a year’s membership will get you 26 fonts at a price less than a third of their normal individual cost. In addition, when you sign up you will receive a special bonus font exclusively available to Font Club members. Our bonus font for new members this season is the new Ribbon Banner font which is shown to the left. It’s a Font Club exclusive. Plus, if you sign up for two years you’ll get another bonus font halfway through your membership. With a one year membership that’s 27 fonts for less than $3 each. With a two year membership that’s 50 fonts for less than $2 each. It’s a very hard deal to beat, but we can beat it. Memberships are normally $79 for one year and $129 for two, but through the end of Novmber if you sign up or renew you can get $10 off your one-year membership (coupon code CLUBONE) or $20 off a 2 year membership (coupon code CLUBTWO. Just use the correct code on checkout.

Our monthly font releases include a wide variety of interesting fonts, including unique decorative titling fonts, hand-lettered fonts and elegant text fonts. If you join the font club now you’ll start out with two new fonts. Soon thereafter you’ll also get our next new font. After that, every two weeks you will be surprised by a new font before we even release the demo version on our website. You’ll get lots of great fonts, plus there’s an intriguing element of mystery as you anticipate what strange font ideas we’ll come up with next.

To sign up, just go to: JOIN or try a TWO YEAR MEMBERSHIP.

    Dave,

    I was thinking of signing up for your font club because of your paragraph:

    “Since we release two new featured fonts each month, this means that a year’s membership will get you 26 fonts at a price less than a third of their normal individual cost. In addition, when you sign up you will receive a special bonus font exclusively available to Font Club members.

With a two year membership that’s 50 fonts for less than $2 each. It’s a very hard deal to beat”

    But one of my friends tells me that it’s been one a month for over three years (less than half the “fifty in two years”) and that he has never gotten a “special bonus font” halfway through his membership.

    Are they a current subscriber? We did get behind schedule for a while, but we’ve been on schedule now for almost a year. Plus the subscription is not done on a yearly basis, but based on the number of fonts, so if he got a 2 year subscription that would get him the indicated 52 fonts plus 2 bonus fonts whether it took two years or longer to release them. We update the bonus font once every 25 fonts. I don’t know what font was his first font, but we are due for a new bonus font shortly.

    We explicitly say that the subscription is for 26+1 fonts rather than a calendar year of fonts because given the challenges in designing new fonts on a schedule there are going to be occasional variations in when new fonts come out.

    If you want to confirm that the font releases are back on that 1 font per 2 weeks schedule, just look at the dates on the new release announcements here on the site. You’ll see there are variations, but it’s very close to that schedule. We actually released a couple of fonts early this summer, but our latest release was a week late — it averages out.

    To add some more details, Verne was our first font released this year. It was released on the 8th of January. Starting from that point 13 two-week periods have passed and we’ve released the following 13 fonts:

    Verne
    Boomtown
    Burd Ellen
    Art Deco Stencil
    Walter Crane
    Amphitryon
    Pencraft Initials
    Agravain
    Foundry Ornament
    Rasael
    Rockne
    Krasny Mir
    Changeling

    So we’re dead on schedule for this year.

    Last year we ran a little bit behind, but we still managed to release 21 new fonts, starting with Katisha and ending with Goldwork. IMO that’s not too bad.

    Hi Dave, I’ve bought fonts individually at random times over the years and was thinking about joining your font club. I notice, however, that you’re talking about sending out the TrueType and Postscript versions of fonts. I’m being told that those are on the way out and I should only be buying OpenType fonts. Do you do the font club in OpenType versions? If not, do you plan to?

    Many thanks and keep up the beautiful work. By the way, I agree entirely with your article on the bookstores and I’m also an SF reader but female.

    Thank you,

    Terry

    I think the dominance of OpenType is debatable. Postscript has become largely irrelevant, but TrueType isn’t going anywhere. Right now we aren’t doing OpenType fonts in the Font Club, but I can see that we might want to in the future. We’re now slowly converting all of our fonts to OpenType format. But functionally there’s no difference, and if you want OpenType you can convert any of your fonts to that format using a cool little program from FontLab called TypeTool.

    Your “Special Offer for Font Club” indicates in one paragraph that the bonus font is ‘Ribbon Banner’ and in the following paragraph that it is “Holiday Borders.’ Which is it?

  8. Dave Nalle on November 2nd, 2012

    It’s Ribbon Borders. The Holiday Borders font was from an earlier offer. Thanks for pointing out the inconsistency. I’ve corrected the page.

    Hi Dave

    Just wondering if you sell fonts for other people?

    I have created some steampunk themed fonts based on the 17th/18th century designs of Bodoni, with added decoration, as well as runic fonts, a font based on Germanic lettering of the late nineteenth century, and a whole lot of others, for books I have been publishing.

    This is definitely the best font site on the net and it would certainly be an honour to have my fonts for sale here…

    Andrew Partington.

    PS I emailed you a week ago as a reply to your weekly newsletter – perhaps that isn’t set up to receive replies!

  10. Dave on April 28th, 2013

    We do resell fonts from individual outside designers, at least a few of them. I’ll see if I can track down your email
