FontShop Digest

Date set in Freight Micro

New and Notable

There are thousands of script fonts out there. We could stock our shelves sky high with anything that has an alphabet, but we believe it’s more useful to filter the mediocre from the great. We bring you only the finest fonts available, scripts with sure strokes and a natural flow, work from master scriptographers like Charles Borges de Oliveira and Alejandro Paul. And now, thanks to exclusive FontShop packs, you can get their greatest hits all at once and save money while you’re at it.
