Three Rising Stars
Every month we add new, innovative fonts and sign up new foundries. In this 25th issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three of our top-selling new fonts.

The Treasury System is a set of fonts that takes advantage of the most commonly used feature of today’s design software: layering. The PDFs and images in the MyFonts gallery show you some of the possibilities Treasury has to offer, from simple attractive elegance expressed in the main script, all the way to mysteriously magnificent calligraphic plates!

Headlines and Display
Doowop

Doowop brings back the good old days of rock and roll... kids hanging out under the streetlights singing four-part harmony. Relive those days with Doowop JNL — a fun and playful font with a decidedly 50s flair!

Zoinks

Zoinks is a slap happy font for wrong doers that you just have to smack in the face! As with all Comicraft fonts, Zoinks works well in headlines and for speech balloons.

Mister Sirloin

Mister Sirloin is one meaty customer without a lick of gristle to spare. This playful dish comes in three beefy weights — Rare, Medium, and Well — and is perfect anytime you need a fun typeface!

Cats and Dogs
Gattofont
Toon Town

Cat-lovers get an entire font: Gattofont includes 62 different cat silhouettes. Gattofont is a purrfect picture font for all your feline needs.

Toon Town is a fun, inventive font that includes four fonts in one package: Ink, Pencil, Toons, and Catchwords. All the symbols and characters work together to evoke a real toon town style!



Tarnation

Farmer

Sundae

Ruby

SparkyType creates high-quality typefaces inspired by handmade and quirky alphabets, such as the crazy Tarnation, slab serif Farmer, brush script Sundae, and rounded Ruby. With a person-ality all their own, these colorful fonts work well for large, confident headings where you want to make an impact!



Follow-Up

“I'm deleting all my other bookmarks — this is the best font website I’ve experienced. You can’t beat the functionality — the ease of locating and view[ing] fonts. My favorite was being able to scroll through various fonts in the text of your choice. What a powerful tool. Great Design! I'm a happy ‘purchasing’ customer.”
