Fonts.com - Type Trading Cards

Fonts.com - Download Mac and Windows Fonts: Fontent

For those interested in typography, each month, fonts.com is releasing a pair of font trading cards meant to be printed on Avery #5389 postcards. They are very nice, with a famous quote in the featured font on the front. On the back, they have "spotting" guides, detailing each font's quirks and defining characteristics, an etymology including its typographer, family info, and font facts. A 100 pack of the precut postcards you can print the cards on costs around $20.

Since April, these following fonts have been featured:

  • Bembo
  • Gill Sans
  • ITC Berkeley Old Style
  • ITC Conduit
  • Cachet
  • Joanna
