Is there such a thing as a fontaholic? You know, like alcoholic, but an addiction to fonts instead of booze. How many fonts are on your Mac? If you have anything to do with graphic design, the web, advertising, marketing, and create anything in Word or Pages, you’ve got fonts.
And we all know the problem with fonts, right? There’s never enough.
Stop by the Mac App Store and enter fonts in the search field. What do you get? More fonts. Font collections. Font managers. Font pickers. Font catalog.
Starting at a mere 99-cents you get fonts, fonts, and more fonts. Here’s a package for about the same as you’d spend on a trip to Starbucks.
For 99-cents there’s the Cursive collection, a Contemporary collection, even a Classic font collection, and Commic fonts.
I knew I was addicted to fonts years ago but had it brought home to me again by plunking down 99-cents for for less than a dozen fonts in Belight Software’s Cursive Font Kit. A dime a dozen seems fair.
Holiday Fonts from Halloween to Christmas? 99-cents.
My Mac has a few thousand fonts. All totaled, I don’t think I’ve spent more than a few hundred dollars, so you can assume that the font quality is somewhat less than the $2,999 Adobe charges for their 2,400 typefaces (that’s the difference between cheap fonts and expensive fonts– expensive fonts are called typefaces).
It’s true that you may get what you pay for, but remember– more is better.
