The 'Rising Stars' font is Hopeless Heart

the MyFonts newsletter of features and fonts - Jan. ’06 (issue 22)

This font is LTC Jacobean Initials

e’ve already broken all of our New Year’s resolutions except one: providing you with the hottest new fonts at MyFonts! This month’s Rising Stars features an elegant, elaborate script; a comic font with personality; and a connecting script in OpenType Pro format. And in Design Trends, we look at Valentine fonts.

Three Rising Stars
Every month we provide new, innovative fonts and sign up new foundries. In this 22nd issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three of our top-selling new fonts.

Ellida is a new ornate script from Wiescher Design. The designer tells us while he enjoyed making the font, the creation process was extremely time-consuming. It is quite a challenge to make calligraphic letters work on computers so that they join perfectly!


Designed with comedy in mind, ZOOOM is a chunky, comic book sound effects font with personality! ZOOOM would look great on everything from birthday invitations to packaging for toys. For added wackiness, the uppercase characters are staggered on the baseline. ZOOOM comes in two weights, regular and italic.


Sonora is a new family in the OpenType Pro font format. It comes in six styles: light, medium, bold, and the corresponding italics. Sonora is a very distinguished, elegant and versatile script font.



Did You Know?
The first of the year is a good time to buy new computers or upgrade current ones. We often get questions from our customers regarding fonts they lost when switching computers or when their systems crashed.

Focus on Design Trends: Valentine Fonts

Need Valentine fonts for cards, invitations, or posters? MyFonts has a variety of picture and text fonts for that special someone in your life.

Picture Fonts
Heart Breaker

Heart Breaker is a dingbat typeface loaded with the kind of love-lorn inspiration that tattoos of devotion are made of. Perfect for Valentine's Day, romantic gestures, and heart-felt designs.

Ann’s Valentines

Ann's Valentines are heart-shaped dingbats that you’ll use ’til your heart’s content. A dingbat font to fall in love with, Ann's Valentines includes heart-shaped pictures that are perfect for web design as well as print.

Party Noid



PizzaDude has released many new designs within the last year, including Party Noid, Xantigo, and Whumsy. They’re romantic fonts that go all the way — from cartoonish to elegant, from funny to serious!


Last month we featured Ultimate Ornaments as one of our three Rising Stars. Currently #27 on the Best Sellers list, this font contains 47 beautiful, decorative ornaments, all easilly accesible using the punctuation, number, and letter keys on your keyboard. It was inspired by the decorative elements supplied by European foundries and printing companies in the 18th and 19th centuries.

“I searched for 3 months on so many other websites for an Old English Font. I had no luck until I found this website. I was able to find the Collins Old English and it is exactly what I need. Your site is AWESOME! Thank you!” — Renee from Pennsylvania, January 8, 2006
