Try Our New Font Preview Tool

After a long search we’ve managed to find a new tool called Typeshow which will allow visitors to the site to create custom samples of any of our fonts. It is similar in design to the Texter tool which we experimented with in the past, but actually uses TrueType fonts instead of Flash SWF fonts, and it manages to render the samples quickly on the fly, letting you see any text you like in the font style of your choice.

The catch is that because we now have over 600 fonts entering them all into the Typeshow database is a pretty daunting task. So we’re adding as many fonts as we can as fast as we can, but don’t expect the list to be complete for several weeks. But for now it’s got a limited set of fonts and it’s ready to try out. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.

    I am writing a biography of the life of my first ancestor to America, William Stevenson (1725-1809) who fought with three of his son in four of the five battles fought in North Carolina during the American Revolution.

    What font do you recommend that would best relect the time and period of this man?

    Thank you,
    Don Stevenson

    You should definitely look at the Colonial Fonts package at http://www.fontcraft.com/fontcraft/colonial-fonts-collection/

    All of those fonts fit the right period for your project.
