CheapProFonts - Newsletter 10-02

Please enjoy this bunch of recently released quality fonts - all available at our usual low price of only $10 each! :)

In this news release I present 9 fonts:
- 1 from Kimberly Geswein
- 1 from Paul Lloyd
- 1 from Brian Kent

- 1 from Levente Halmos
- 3 by myself! ;)
- 1 from "Apostrophe" - and it's free!

As the 100th font released by CheapProFonts, I wanted to make something special - so I have chosen to upgrade one of the most popular free fonts ever: the one and only Scriptina by the infamous Fredrick "Apostrophe" Nader!

CheapProFonts - Newsletter 10-01

Welcome to our first newsletter this decade! :)

These fonts were reworked during the second half of 2009, but as I presented the Geometry Soft Pro family in a separate newsletter I thought I'd wait a little while to present the rest of the fonts from that period. Here they are! ;)

In this news release I present 9 fonts:
- 2 from Kimberly Geswein
- 2 (related) from Kevin King
- 1 from Derek Vogelpohl
- 1 from Nick Curtis
- 1 from Levente Halmos
- 1 from "newcomer" Paul Lloyd
- 1 large family from myself! ;)

Season's Greetings from CheapProFonts!

I just want to wish you all a happy holiday season!
It has been a good second year for CheapProFonts, and next year will hopefully be even better... :)

Kind regards

Welcome to the third CheapProFonts newsletter of 2009 - not a regular newsletter with various reworked fonts, but a presentation of the first part of a large project of NEW fonts I'm working on. :)

The "Geometry Pro" family has been designed to be the final word in purely geometric fonts, and this rounded "Soft" sub-family is the ultimate web 2.0 style font collection. ;)

CheapProFonts - Newsletter 09-02

Welcome to the second newsletter this year! :)

Half of the releases this time are fonts made by Levente Halmos - a designer from Hungary, and a welcome newcomer to the CheapProFonts stable. The font industry sees more and more new type designers coming from eastern Europe, but surprisingly few of them actually cater for their own home markets by including all the necessary glyphs... CheapProFonts to the rescue! ;)

In this news release I present the following 9 fonts:
- 5 from Levente Halmos
- 2 from Kimberly Geswein
- 1 from Brian Kent
- 1 from myself! ;)

CheapProFonts - Newsletter 09-01

Welcome to the first newsletter this year! :)

CheapProFonts is constantly growing, and we're now spreading our wings a bit: some of our fonts are now also available on MyFonts - and more are on their way! :)
Because of this I had to spend some time preparing new files and graphics etc. so the releases of new reworked fonts has been a bit further between - but I still keep a respectable pace.

In this news release I present the following 9 fonts:
- 3 from Ronna Penner
- 2 from Ray Larabie
- 1 from Nick Curtis
- 1 from Brian Kent
- 1 from Kimberly Geswein
- 1 from myself! ;)

CheapProFonts - Newsletter 08 Q3

Welcome to our third newsletter! :)

CheapProFonts is still growing. This quarter Derek Vogelpohl (of ShyFonts/Shyfoundry) joined the roster, as well - so now there will be some good text-fonts available in our usual large multilingual character set, too. We hope you will enjoy them!

In this news release I present 12 fonts:
- 4 from Derek Vogelpohl
- 2 from Ray Larabie
- 2 from Kevin King
- 2 from Brian Kent
- 1 from Nick Curtis
- 1 from myself - and it's free! :)

I have also made a PDF Font Catalog available for download - here you can really zoom in on the details of all our fonts. I am rather proud of the (often) cleaned-up outlines, and the way I have designed and implemented some of the more demanding diacritics :)
