We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our tireless foundries who have labored over some incredible typefaces this year. The notable fonts below were released in 2012 and maintained an enduring presence on our bestsellers list. If you haven’t considered using one of these families in your own work, maybe now is the time. And to you dear designer, we thank you sincerely for allowing us to be your go-to place to buy fonts. We look forward to serving you in the new year. Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year! -Ethan, Dan & John
Veneer from Yellow Design Studio is a high resolution hand-crafted letterpress font that’s vintage, authentic and grungy. It’s highly customizable with six distress options for every letter and three for all other characters, and because it’s remarkably detailed, it looks great even at very large sizes. In addition Veneer includes a matching set of funky dingbats... for FREE!

Foro is a classic slab serif with warm and appealing flow. It is modeled on humanistic shapes and proportions and is therefore much less harsh than other recent slab serifs. It was a definite winner in our new releases this year.

Thirsty Script from Yellow Design Studio is a script typeface with a ‘new meets vintage’ vibe. It is friendly but with an edge...a mashup of retro script, modern sans, and a shot of caffeine.

Sina Nova is a robust but assertively warm family, recalling and referencing early classical printing types while presenting a distinctly contemporary look. It is great for headlines and in larger styles but with its even flow makes it ideally suited for long texts. An extended, finely tuned range of weights renders it suitable for many applications.
