This is a listing of all glyphs contained in the
OpenType variants that may only be accessible via OpenType-aware
Each basic character (“A”) is followed by Unicode variants of the same
character (Á, Ä…), then OpenType variants (small caps, alternates,
ligatures…). This way you can see all the variations on a single
character in one place.
You can use this font in any of the following places. Read the full EULA text for details about each license. If
you have a usage in mind that's not covered by these licenses, contact us and we'll see what we can do.
Desktop: for use on a desktop workstation
For the most common uses, both personal and professional, for use in desktop applications with a font
Install the font on your Mac OS X or Windows system
Use the font within desktop applications such as Microsoft Word, Mac Pages, Adobe InDesign, Adobe
Create and print documents, as well as static images (.jpeg, .tiff, .png)
Desktop licenses are based on the number of users of the fonts. You can change the number of users by
clicking the quantity dropdown option on Buying Choices or Cart pages.
Please be sure to review the listing foundry's
Desktop license agreement
as some restrictions may apply—such as use in logos/trademarks, geographic restrictions (number of
locations), and products that will be sold.
Adding users later:
Desktop licenses are cumulative. If you require a Desktop license that covers additional users, simply
place a new order for the same Desktop package, for the number of additional users.
Webfonts can be used on a single domain. Agencies responsible for multiple websites, for example web
design agencies or hosting providers, may not share a single webfont license across multiple websites.
Every time the webpage using the webfont kit is loaded (i.e, the webfont kit CSS which holds the
@font-face rule is called) the counting system counts a single pageview for each webfont within the
For usage in graphic images shown on the website, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow for it.
MyFonts offers three types of webfont licenses: Annual, Pay Once, and Pay As You Go. Only one of these
three would be available for a given webfont. Click here to
You can use this type of license to embed fonts into digital ads, such as ads built using HTML5.
We'll supply a kit containing webfonts that can be used within digital ads, such as banner ads. This kit
may be shared with third parties who are working on your behalf to produce the ad creatives, however you
are wholly responsible for it.
HTML5 ads use webfonts, so why purchase a Digital Ads license rather than a Webfont license?
There are a few reasons, such as the Digital Ads EULA having terms that enable usage in digital ads and on
Digital advertisements also have different usage patterns compared to websites. Most websites generally
have consistent pageviews month-to-month whereas advertising impressions can vary wildly month-to-month.
Prices reflect this, making it much less expensive to use a Digital Ad license.
If you know the number of impressions the campaign requires, that amount can be ordered before the
campaign begins. For campaigns where number impressions is unknown until the end of the campaign, you can
true up at the end of each calendar month.
You can use an Electronic Doc license to embed the font in an electronic publication such as an eBook,
eMagazine, eNewspaper, or interactive PDF.
An Electronic Doc license is based on the number of publications in which the font is used. Each issue
counts as a separate publication. Regional or format variations don't count as separate publications.
Updated versions of publications that are free to previous customers do not need a new license; otherwise,
each new version that is released counts as a separate publication.
For font usage in graphic images shown as the ePub cover, consider a Desktop license instead as most allow
After doing this for so many years, one would think my fascination with the old history of writing would have mellowed out by now. The truth is that alongside being a calligraphy history buff, I'm a pop technology freak. Maybe even keener on the tech thing, since I just can't seem to get enough new gadgets. And after working with type technologies for so many years, I'm starting to think that writing and design technologies as we now know them, being about 2.5 post-computer generations, keep becoming more and more detached from what the very old humanity arts/tasks they essentially want to facilitate. In a world where command-z is a frequently used key combination, it’s difficult to justify expecting a Morris-made book or a Zaner-drawn sentence, but accidental artistic “mutations” become welcome, marketable features. When fluid pens were introduced, their liquid saturation influenced type design to a great extent almost overnight an influence professional designers tend to play down. Now round stroke endings are a common sight, and the saturation is so clean and measured, unlike any liquid-paper relationship possible in reality. Some designers even illustrate their work by overlaying perfect circles at stroke ends, in order to illustrate how “geometric” their work was. Because if it’s measured with precise geometry, it’s got to be meaningful design.
And once in a while, by a total freak accident, the now-cherished mutations prove to have existed long before the technology that caused them. Rolling Pen was cued by just such a thing: A rounded, circular, roll-flowing calligraphy from the late nineteenth century seemingly one of those experimental takes on what inspired Business Penmanship, another font of mine. Looking at it now it certainly seems to be friendlier, more legible, and maybe even more practical and easier to execute than the standard business penmanship of those days, but I guess friendliness and simplicity were at odds with the stiff manner business liked to present itself back then, so that kind of thing remained buried in the professional penman’s oddities drawer. It would be quite a few years before all this curviness and rounding were thought of as symbolic of graceful movement, which brought such a flow closer to the idea of fine art.
Even though in this case the accidental mutation just happens to not be a mutation after all, the whole technology-transforms-application argument still applies here. I'm almost sure “business” will be the last thing on people’s minds when they use this font today. One extreme example of that level of disconnect between origin and current application is shown here, with the so-called business penmanship strutting around in gloss and neon.
Rolling Pen is another cup of mine that runneth over with alternates, swashes, ligatures, and other techy perks. To explore its full potential, please use it in a program that supports OpenType features for advanced typography.

Sudtipos is a new collective Argentinian type foundry. New blood, new attitude. A joint venture of four professional designers with lots of expertise in different areas like branding, packaging design, corporate identity, television and new media. “The foundry, or collective as we prefer to designate it, started because of that — packaging, editorial or brand designers making fonts for real designers” Alejandro Paul, one of the company’s founders, said in his Creative Characters interview. Alejandro “Ale” Paul made a name for himself drawing and programming some of the most intricate script fonts ever digitized. “My experience in branding product packaging was a natural catalyst for me to be interested in scripts and seek like-minded people for the collective.” The collective’s bestselling scripts include Bowling Script, Horizontes Script and Hipster Script Pro, which was named one of MyFonts’ most popular fonts of 2012, and was recognized by both Typographica and Type Directors Club that same year. “Our aim is to always be graphic designers making typefaces for graphic designers,” Ale said. “We try not to lose that particular focus. We’re always thinking about how to make a graphic designer’s work easier when it comes to using the type element in his or her design.”
