Hoefler Text Alternative?

Recommended Posts

smeyer3

Hi! I'm working on rebranding my company. I used Hoefler Text Black Swash Small Caps on a few titles, and everyone loved it. Unfortunately, Hoefler only seems to sell entire packages, and the whole package is over $1k. I'm only interested in the one weight.

Anyone able to help me find an alternative? Or know if I can buy just that weight? A Google font would be perfect, but I'm not having any luck. Thanks!

If you're on a Mac, you are probably using a legitimate licensed version of Hoefler Text Black Italic?

I doubt it. I installed it by using files my friend gave to me years ago. It's not legit to use in a commercial setting unless I purchase it.

A possible alternative: RTF Amethyst Bold Swash Small Caps.

Thanks for suggestion this! I'll look into this.

I checked, and Hoefler Text Black Italic is still bundled with macOS, and unless you plan to use it as a webfont, you should be free to use it in your graphics.

Hello,

 

There’s a version of Hoefler Text that ships free with MacOS and iOS, free. The “director’s cut” that we publish has additional styles, and costs $299 — hopefully one of these is a good option for you!

 

Kindest Regards,

Jonathan Hoefler

Having Jonathan Hoefler answering your Hoefler Text inquiry is a lot like having Robert De Niro answering your method acting questions. Gotta love that. LOL 🤩👍
