    Has anyone purchased the fonts from this site?
    Do you like them?
    or does anyone have a font place they like?

    I think they are pretty neat looking and might go ahead and buy them....not a bad price for the 33 bundle ethier....

    just checking....

    Excellent investment! ...and addition...to a library of traditional, proven, tried and true standard fonts. May I suggest that you search through a recent thread here on "Top Ten Fonts", the choices of members. I think that you will find a wealth of excellent choices, most all of which I think will make a great, full bodied library for anyone in this field, whether a beginner or master.Study hard, the fonts used on signs and advertisements everywhere around you. This will be helpful in your choices of fonts to add to your library. Be careful not to overuse specialty and display fonts. A well rounded mix of sexy as well as standard fonts are a must to have.

    You will wonder how you did without them, but you must remember to work them properly to get the best results. Using the extra swash characters can really make a word come alive. Watch the kerning and slanting and you will be amazed how good your stuff will look.

    The Signfonts guy, Steve C., is a merchant member here and also a good man.
    His fonts, used properly, can bring your designs to life.
    Love....Jill

    I purchased the collection with the newest font from Steve C - clients immediately started commenting on how good the layouts looked, they do make a difference and well worth it IMO

    I've been using these fonts for quite a while now, I think as soon as they were released and have gotten the new ones as they came along too. To me, they are the ones I try to use first.

    Be careful if you do purchase those fonts. They've caused me to go back and re-design a lot of projects because they look so damn good. Works of art they are.

    They're great if that's your style.

    They're a bit too much cartoon to suit me although there's two I'll be collecting, Jill's favorite script and something called 'Marquee' for those odd times when I feel the need for a really casual sans alphabet. Perhaps a couple of others, who knows.

    The most of them remind me of styles I used to affect when I was in a hurry way back in the time tunnel when I used to do weekly grocery store banners and shelf talkers with tempera and an actual brush. With the advent of digital I find that doing it correctly takes no more time and effort than quick and dirty.
