Secret Scrypt™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

4 fonts from $24.95
Secret Scrypt™ Secret Scrypt™

Emulating real handwriting has always been an aim of font designers in the digital age. The standard mainstream scripts and doodles that were available for the longest time have not successfully reached that goal. A letter always looked the same wherever you placed it. Some workarounds, such as letter alternates and ligatures, were used in many fonts, but they were a bit inconvenient to use, and in some cases didn't work correctly because they had to be placed in separate fonts from the main character set. Not until now, with OpenType technology, have we been able to emulate real handwriting, by including multiple character sets in the same font and programming it for smart form changes through letter sequence counting.

Vox Round™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

20 fonts from $39.95
Vox Round™ Vox Round™

Vox Round is the softer version of the Vox family.

Tomato™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

5 fonts from $29.95
Tomato™ Tomato™

Tomato is the digitization and quite elaborate expansion of an early 1970s Franklin Photolettering film type called Viola Flare. This typeface is an obvious child of funk, the audio-visual revolution that swept America and put an end to the art nouveau period we now associate with the hippy era.

Centennial Script™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $24.95
Centennial Script™ Centennial Script™

Centennial Script was designed and cut by Hermann Ihlenburg in 1876 (the centennial of American independence, hence the typeface’s name) for the MacKellar, Smiths & Jordan foundry in Philadelphia. Ihlenburg was then only 33 years old, and these beautiful forms put him on his way to become the most prolific and innovative deco, ornamental and script typeface designer and punch cutter of the nineteenth century.

Cougar™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $24.95
Cougar™ Cougar™

It is still a mystery to us why Martin Wilke’s 1968 Konzept design was ignored by the digital age. It certainly has the elements of attractive yet realistic handwriting, as well as a few very distinctive letters that make it very unique in its class.

Chopper™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

4 fonts from $24.95
Chopper™ Chopper™

In 1972, VGC released two typefaces by designer friends Dick Jensen and Harry Villhardt. Jensen’s was called Serpentine, and Villhardt’s was called Venture. Even though both faces had the same elements and a somewhat similar construct, one of them became very popular and chased the other away from the spotlight. Serpentine went on to become the James Bond font, the Pepsi and every other soda pop font, the everything font, all the way through the glories of digital lala-land where it was hacked, imitated and overused by hundreds of designers. But the only advantage it really had over Venture was being a 4-style family, including the bold italic that made it all the rage, as opposed to Venture’s lone upright style. One must wonder how differently things would have played if a Venture Italic was around back then.

Filmotype Quiet™

  |  available for Desktop and Web

Albums

1 font from $29.00
Filmotype Quiet™ Filmotype Quiet™

Initially designed in the early-to-mid 1950s, Filmotype Quiet was among the first of its Novelty font designs.

Remastered and expanded from the original source, Filmotype Quiet includes a full international character compliment, automatic fractionals, ordinals, and a suite of period appropriate alternate forms in dynamic OpenType format.

Quiller™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

3 fonts from $24.95
Quiller™ Quiller™

Quiller is another catch from the hot metal days, another one that managed to slip through the fingers of both the photo-typers and digitizers of last 4 decades.

Salome™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $24.95
Salome™ Salome™

Salome is a revival, normalization and elaborate expansion of a 1972 film face called Cantini. The original film type, released by a tiny independent outfit called Letter Graphics, looked like it was hand drawn with little consideration for consistency in essential lettering flow measurements, like angles, stroke widths, and vertical metrics. All these issues have been resolved in this digital version, and the original character set, including the whole lot of alternates, was entirely redrawn and expanded to include even more alternates and many useful ligatures, as well as extended support for Latin-based languages.

Gamer™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

6 fonts from $24.95
Gamer™ Gamer™

Canada Type released the first version of Gamer in August of 2004. It was modeled after a few 1972 magazine advertisement letters, the origin of which was later identified as a common film type called Checkmate.

Reiner Hand™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $24.95
Reiner Hand™ Reiner Hand™

One of the earliest fonts published by Canada Type was Almanac, Phil Rutter's digitization of Imre Reiner’s 1957 calligraphic typeface, London Script. In 2007, when the font was revisited for an update, it was shown that it too light for applications under 24 pt, and too irregular for applications over 64 pt.

Rostrum™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

2 fonts from $24.95
Rostrum™ Rostrum™

The Rostrum fonts are a revival and expansion of a type called Oleander, designed in 1938 by Julius Kirn for the Genzsch & Heyse foundry in Hamburg.

Jojo™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $24.95
Jojo™ Jojo™

A little more flower and a litle less power, please. Fun, friendly, fashionable, and feminine to a fault, Jojo takes display typography to a whole new level, where eyes can't help but appreciate the day and the design at hand. It takes a graphic designer very little imagination to see these letters on posters, book covers, clothes, and craft paraphernalia. Or how about a sign over a bakery? A music sleeve? A romantic comedy titling? Cosmetics products? Pretty much anywhere!

Celebrity™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $24.95
Celebrity™ Celebrity™

Celebrity is a new execution of a film type concept put forth by Willy Wirtz in 1971. The original idea, called Latus, had many irregularities and unfit characters that are now fixed and expanded in this digital version.

Bruschetta™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $24.95
Bruschetta™ Bruschetta™

The problem with scripts in general, and brush scripts in particular, is that the majority of them cannot be set in all-caps words or sentences. So as a rule of thumb most designers try to avoid brush scripts when they know they will be entering an all-cap zone.

Odette™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

4 fonts from $29.95

Apricot™ Apricot™

A. R. Bosco made Romany for ATF in 1934, when there was much demand for script types in advertising and publishing. It was the high times of Speedball lettering, and a casual script in that fashion was naturally very welcome. It became an instant hit and was used widely for a good part of the 1930s and 1940s.

When Aldo Novarese designed his “tipo inglese” Juliet typeface, he had a simple objective in mind: Reduce the inclination angle of the traditional 18th and 19th centuries English script in order to make the punchcutter’s job easier and the resulting metal type more durable.

Gala™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

8 fonts from $24.95
Gala™ Gala™

The Gala Condensed fonts come because of popular demand. Ever since Canada Type released the Gala set, we keep receiving e-mail asking us for a condensed version. So here it is. The original Gala fonts were a revival of Giulio da Milano’s 1935 Neon Design for the Italian Nebiolo foundry. That design was the immediate predecessor of the popular Microgramma family, which became the definitive modern 20th century expression of friendly letter forms. The appeal of the Gala’s design lies in the rare combination of informal elegance that these letters make. And now that the condensed version is here, the elegance of these letters can be used to construct wordy headlines where space is a concern, or simply mark a design in an elegant out-of-the-way manner that is a statement by itself. Gala Condensed comes in three weights: regular, medium and bold.

Treasury™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

23 fonts from $24.95
Treasury™ Treasury™

The Treasury script waited over 130 years to be digitized, and the Canada Type crew is very proud to have done the honors. And then some. After seven months of meticulous work on some of the most fascinating letter forms ever made, we can easily say that Treasury is the most ambitious, educational and enjoyable type journey we've embarked upon, and we're certain you will be quite happy with the results.

Martie™

6 fonts from $24.95
Martie™ Martie™

From the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, by way of Toronto, comes Martie’s handwriting. Martie Byrd is a school teacher in Roanoke, Virginia, and a friend of Canada Type’s Rebecca Alaccari. After years of admiring the cheer and clarity of Martie’s handwriting, we asked her to write out full alphabets for some cool font treatment. The intent was to do three different versions of her writing in two different pens, then use the auto-magic of OpenType to determine letter sequences and rotate character sets on the fly when the fonts are in use. A successful endeavor it was. Take a look at the images in the MyFonts gallery to see the character rotation in action, along with a visual explanation of why Martie is not just another handwriting font.

Blanchard™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

6 fonts from $24.95
Blanchard™ Blanchard™

Blanchard is a revival and elaborate extension of Muriel, a 1950 metal face made by Joan Trochut-Blanchard for the Fonderie Typographique Française, that was published simultaneously by the Spanish Gans foundry under the name Juventud.

Ronaldson™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

17 fonts from $29.95
Ronaldson™ Ronaldson™

On April 29, 2006, Simone Chisena uploaded to the WhatTheFont forum a scanned two-page spread from a 1970s Italian gardening book, asking for the identity of the face used on those pages. Rebecca Alaccari had been spending her daily lunch hour at that forum for a few weeks then. The face used on the pages was identified as the American classic Ronaldson Old Style, a MacKellar, Smith & Jordan metal face dating back to 1884. Ronaldson Old Style was never digitized. A conversation about it started on the forum, and the rest was a great 22-month adventure in type history, the result of which is this digital version of what was the best selling and most unique American text face of the nineteenth century, all the way into the 1920s.

Hortensia™

  |  available for Desktop, Web, App, Epub and Server

Albums

1 font from $24.95
Hortensia™ Hortensia™

Hortensia, designed around 1900 by Emil Gursch for his own Berlin foundry, is a typeface most expressive of the post-Victorian aesthetic that was all the rage in both Europe and America during the second half of the 19th century and up until the Great War. It is a reduced aesthetic of sharp points and natural curves that almost want to apologize for their own elegance, but clearly embody the simple excitement about the blossoming of industry and crafts during the period. This deco script trend would get a re-run for about a decade on either side of the second World War — especially in the entertainment and financial industries — before giving way to art nouveau and big brush faces.
