Help me name my e-zine (contest)

alfabet's picture

I am planning to do a type & graphic design e-newsletter, distributed by e-mail to subscribers.
The content will be :

  • type tips and tricks
  • tidbits from the type & design world
  • updates and new releases of Alphabet Design fonts

I already have an e-newsletter called alfaBITS geared towards the general business audience with tips on marketing, managing, etc.

The winning entry will receive a collection of Alphabet Design fonts worth $100. Two runners-up will each receive a single font.

Please visit www.alphabet-design.com

Thanks!

I've always wanted to use Case & Point for something but some law firm uses it for software and has it locked down.

Mnott, love your title.

Fontplayer, did you meant to say "Baseline Schrift"?

fontplayer's picture

Fontplayer, did you meant to say “Baseline Schrift”?

I suppose that would work too. Isn't that German for letter or something like that?

shrift
Pronunciation: (shrift), [key]
—n. Archaic.
1. the imposition of penance by a priest on a penitent after confession.
2. absolution or remission of sins granted after confession and penance.
3. confession to a priest.
