    Rebuilding Font Collection Legally?

    Well as Ralf said CorelDraw does contain a number of versions of popular fonts and even has some of the Star trek fonts. Another source of modern fonts but is a design cuts package.

    Rebuilding Font Collection Legally?

    There wasn't any specific method to my madness; I used whatever I needed at the time and kept it. My main use of Photoshop is doing DVD covers as a hobby, so I collected a large variety of fonts based on film and television. I also used fan-created studio templates as a starting point, so that would include fonts like the Univers line for Universal Pictures as an example. To put it simply, I really want to do this the right way now, and I'm sick of feeling guilty every time I come across a supposedly "free" font that I know MyFonts will charge at least $35 for. Also, I don't have the money to spend thousands of dollars at once, correctly replacing all the ones I erased.

    What kind of fonts did you use? Getting entire libraries isn’t really a thing anymore. The font market has gotten way too busy for that. Fonts are usually “on-demand products” now. A while ago MyFonts/Monotype had a subscription package to use many of the “classics” but they just stopped that at the end of last year. An Adobe subscriptions gets you a lot of fonts, but those are more contemporary fonts. A typical suggestion for beginners was always to get an older CorelDraw package, which contains the Bitstream font library. It contains a lot of classics, even though they have different names.

    Many foundry sites offer free typefaces (either individual weights of larger families or type families as a whole). MyFonts.com and Fontshop.com are the two biggest I know of, but lots of smaller foundries do the same (check out an international list at Type Foundries Archive). Hanken Design and Blambot are just two smaller foundries where I have found interesting free single weights or complete typefaces. Fontdiner is another good source. Many other sites, once you sign up for their e-newsletters, will offer links to free type and design resources (Fontbundles, Dealjumbo, etc.). The typefaces aren’t always of the highest quality, but occasionally you can find gems among the rocks.

    Rebuilding Font Collection Legally?

    Hey, all. I had a collection of around 2,000 fonts, most of which I know were not paid for. So, I erased the bulk of them this morning from my computer. This now presents a problem: how to rebuild my collection the right way without spending a load of money that would sink the Titanic. Any suggestions?

    Palatino. Or what’s left of it, after the extreme squishing. download at MyFonts
  10. I saw this in a vector logo, that looked like it was created around the 1990s. I don't know if these are two separate fonts, or the same one...but in either case, I'd appreciate some help identifying it. Thanks!

  15. Someone sent me a picture of this font and wanted words using this font on a shirt. I am not sure the best terms to use to describe this font. I found gg serif regular and leftover font that looked similar. Any help would be appreciated!
