Last week’s bargain was 45 Royalty Free Fonts for your Mac that were actually free (both Mac and Windows). This week it’s almost 1,000 fonts, royalty free, Mac and Windows, but not quite free, but not available on a font-by-font basis, either.
Cheaper By The Dozen
Because I live by the motto ‘You can never have too many fonts‘ I’m willing to check out about every package of fonts that hit the streets. Except those from Adobe. I have my pride (but not enough money).
The latest package of fonts is an oddball collection from the same folks who brought you the 45 Royalty Free fonts from last week’s bargain day.
This one is 1000 OpenType Fonts, and depending on how you view the expense of collecting fonts, they’re a mere 10.019-cents each.
Remember when Subway was raked over the public’s negative sentiment for advertising footlong subs that were not actually a foot long (although, to be fair, they never told us whose foot they used to measure their subs)?
Subway came out and said that footlong wasn’t intended to be a measurement. Apparently, it was just a marketing gimmick or trade name or something silly that nobody bothered to check with a ruler.
1000 OpenType Fonts must have the same ad agency as Subway because the package, though it includes 238 unique font families, only has 998 royalty free, commercial use fonts. For 10.019-cents each, but sold in a bundle of 998 fonts.
As a font package goes, this one is decent. Other than the fact that it’s two fonts short of what’s being advertised by the title of the package.
Seriously? They couldn’t find two more fonts somewhere in the world? Really?
The fonts are cross platform and work magic on Mac and Windows PCs. They’re easily installed and show up in most Mac apps that use fonts. There’s even a custom font viewer included so you can see up close what you bought for 10.019-cents times 998.
