Licensing? Easy Peasy!
Please feel free to use this font for personal use or small commercial projects, but please, never ever share or transfer the files to others.
– Personal Use – a good example of personal use is installing this font on your computer, and using it in your editing programs for your own creations, using in a Word document, or creating your own printable items with my font.
– Small Commercial Use – a good example of small commercial use is creating a printable design for sale, using in your client’s logo (without giving them the files for their own use, of course!), or making a t-shirt for sale with the font you purchased.
In addition, I allow the use of the font you purchase on your own website, and I’ve included the webfont files for you.
Extended use + embedding licenses are available. This can include:
– broadcast use of my font
– embedding in an app or program like Templett
– use on a server
If you have questions about licensing, please feel free to get in touch!
In most cases, following your instant download & unzipping of the files, installing the font should be as easy as double-clicking the file, and then confirming any dialogue boxes that pop up for installation.
Special characters are accessible through specialized design programs like Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
Should you need additional help, please feel free to contact me!
Your font purchase will include .otf, .ttf, and webfont files!
Although I started lettering with good ol’ ink to paper, I consider myself a digital lettering artist these days. It’s a rare occasion that I put pen to paper for creating fonts. I use an iPad Pro & Apple Pencil for digital lettering within the Procreate app and the Affinity Designer app.
On the software side, I use Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop, and Glyphs.
I’m available for custom font design & would be thrilled to help you with your project!
Custom font design starts at $5,000 USD for a single, simple font. “Simple” is defined as full uppercase, full lowercase, numbers, punctuation, standard keyboard symbols, and accented characters for Western European language support. Extra features are additional fees, like additional language support types, ornaments, standard & discretionary ligatures, contextual alternates, swashes, & so on. Don’t know what those mean?! Don’t worry — I have additional info for you if you’d like to read up on the process!
Initially, I provide a short questionnaire in order to get a feel for your requirements & to figure out whether or not my style is a good fit for your custom font. If it’s determined that we’re a good fit for each other, we’ll dive a bit further into the details & the requirements for your font.
Based on your answers to everything & any inspirational examples you provide, I’ll prepare an alphabet for you to give feedback on. The lettering will be provided as a watermarked low resolution .jpg file. You’ll have the opportunity to give specific feedback on individual letters that may need adjusting. You will be required to approve the alphabet ahead of programming the font.
Programming the font means that the lettering is going to be put together in such a way that you can easily double click to install the standard font file and then begin using it on your machine in text editors or any type of computer program that allows font use. (Browser-based programs like Canva may require extra steps on your part to have the font properly installed per their specifications.)
The custom font design includes all font file types (.otf, .ttf, web fonts) for your use, and the font that we collaborate on is 100% exclusive to you for your use — meaning, it’s never going to be resold, nor will be be available for anyone else to purchase. Turn around time on this varies, but I usually estimate about a month for this — usually divided up between the actual lettering, and programming. Payment required is 50% up front to start, and the remainder due prior to digital delivery of finalized font files.
Please contact me if you’re interested in a totally custom font!
I highly recommend using software in which you are able to utilize a glyphs panel, like Illustrator or recent versions of Photoshop CC. You may be able to use a character map to copy & paste the alternate characters, though it is not the easiest or fastest method. If you are purchasing a font with alternate or special characters, it is your responsibility to know & understand how to access those characters.
Bucket List FAQ
I often don’t like to follow “rules.” Font design + travel + blogging + experiences are all passion projects of mine. Influencers & other bloggers will tell you to pick a lane and stay in it. While there is some merit to their reasoning, not everything & everyone will follow the same path. I choose not follow the recommendation to find a niche and stick to that. My font design + lettering projects are heavily influenced by my travel + life experiences. I don’t think there could be one without the other.
Ain’t nothing fancy, for sure. I used to be in the business of professional family photography, but sold off my equipment when I decided to discontinue my business. I wrote about that a little over on Autumn Lane’s blog. These days, I find it much more satisfying and rewarding to stay in the moment, so I take any pics with my iPhone X, and any very minor editing is done in Photoshop. It means my camera stays in my pocket, and I don’t lug a big camera around, which is far more convenient for me!
