I am in the process of planning, coordinating and catering my oldest daughter's wedding. With all these 'jobs' to do, finding the perfect font at your site made my day and took one more item off my to do list. Thanks!"

I'm not an artist or a print professional but a keen amateur who wishes to know how to do the job properly. And that--of course--includes fonts. Understanding them, choosing them, and buying them. One of my rules, which also applies to books and software: if it's worth using then it's worth paying for."
