New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
Here at Letterbox we have been steadily releasing new fonts and are adding to the foundry section of our website.
Currently if you want to see our fonts in action you would use an swf file to preview them. For an example see: http://www.letterbox.net.au/store/order_fonts_berber.html
This can be a time-consuming and a little clumsy.
For the last year or so we have been dreaming of having our own type-tester like H&FJ:
http://www.typography.com/fonts/font_overview.php?productLineID=100033 click test drive tab
http://www.t26.com/fonts/Forma click typesetter tab
Now keeping in mind that we are a small foundry (and hiring a top-notch Ajax programmer isn't within our budget) what are our options?
We are aware of the LetterSetter™ application from LettError, but it doesn't thrill us.
Is there another option?
Do you run a foundry? What is your experience?
Is this an opportunity for some brilliant programmer to build an alternative?
