bulletIN THIS ISSUE: Three Rising Stars, Did You Know?, Popular Featured Font of the Month

Three Rising Stars
Every month we sign up new foundries who provide new, innovative fonts. In this 7th issue of Rising Stars, we want to show you three of our top-selling new fonts.

Jon Cary is inspired by designer Jeremy Dooley's discovery on the Internet of a handwritten note written by USA presidential candidate John Kerry. Decon from Phat Phonts is a great grunge font, perfect for headlines on posters, newsletters, and T-shirts. Dominique is a newly available font from Canada Type. Click any sample to find out more:

Jon Cary




Designed by Canadian Rebecca Alaccari, Dominique is perfect for book covers, magazine advertisements, music designs, party invitations, and more.

Did You Know?
MyFonts offers a powerful set of searching tools designed to help you find exactly what you're looking for, fast — even if you don't know exactly what you're looking for! A search box is at the top of every page. Enter text in this box to search by:

Descriptive keywords. This is the best method for a general search. Keyword search lets you enter any words you feel describe the font you're looking for, in everyday language. For instance, you might try "elegant formal," "wedding invitation," or "flair."


Font names. If you know the name of the font, just enter it in the search box (e.g., Garamond). To narrow your search, enter just the font family name (such as Garamond), not the font weight or style (Bold, Italic, etc.)


Foundry names. If there's a particular typeface design company you like, just enter it in the search box (e.g., TypeSETIt).


Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve our searching tools? Send them to [email protected].

Popular Featured Font of the Month

Every day we feature a different font on the MyFonts home page, a great reason to come back to our site. Last month one of our most popular featured fonts was Ruly, a new font from Enrich Design. Designer Richard Hubbard states that “Ruly is my newest font creation. My roommate in college always had the coolest writing. I thought it deserved to be a font. The font is a great choice for newsletters, cards, etc.”



You can always find a new featured font by visiting the MyFonts home page every day!
