Did You Know?
Did you know you can always redownload any font purchased from MyFonts? Our customers find this invaluable, especially in cases of system crashes or new computer purchases:

I just wanted to say thank you for your excellent service. I bought three fonts from you in October 2001. I recently bought a new computer and realized that I would need to reload the fonts. I wasn't able to extract them from my old machine and so, with a sinking heart, went to your Web site to see how much it would cost to buy them again.

I was delighted to learn that I simply had to enter my name and password and you had saved all of my information and copies of my fonts for me to download for free.

This level of customer service is rare. Thanks for standing out!

- Kathleen from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

To redownload any of your fonts:

  • On MyFonts, click the My Account tab.
  • Enter your Username and Password, and click Login Now.
  • Under User Options, click My Orders or My Library. (My Orders lists fonts by date, while My Library lists them alphabetically.)

As Kathleen discovered, our Order History is a free service. It's like having a backup of your MyFonts purchases!

Best Sellers
One of the frequently overlooked pages on MyFonts is our Best Sellers page.

One pleasant surprise on the best sellers list is Nat Vignette from ParaType. Nat Vignette™ was designed by Natalia Vasilyeva and licensed by ParaType in 2002. Use these original vignettes as fleurons and borders. Nat Vignette is flying up the best sellers chart, currently at number 24.

We encourage you to check out the top 50 best-selling fonts at MyFonts. This page is updated daily. You might be surprised at some of the names in the list!

Celebrity Showcase

Font Albums is a feature of MyFonts that we would like to highlight. If you are a designer running your own studio, agency, or design department, we would like to run a feature on your favorite fonts. The idea is to have a "Designer's Favorites" page with:

  • Your Font Album (top 10 favorite fonts available from MyFonts)
  • A design of yours that features one or more of the fonts in your album, like the font flag on the right
  • Information about yourself, such as your name, job title, website URL, etc.

This is a great chance for you to showcase your talents and let other people see what you can do with type!
