I'll often post a picture of my outgoing tax payment envelopes as a reminder to quarterly-paying friends that yet another deadline is near. And more than one person has commented that I should make a font out of the handwriting I use on outgoing mail.
So, here it is! This is very close to my actual handwriting, especially when I'm addressing an envelope. I use all-caps, but I use taller caps as the "uppercase" and shorter caps as the "lowercase."... Read More
Trillian started out in just one size. Then I got into a discussion about how it makes font designers sad when people stretch their fonts taller, or squash their fonts shorter, because it makes the horizontal strokes off-balance.
So I said to myself, "Self, why don't you make a couple of additional heights of Trillian? So if people want it a little taller or shorter, they have it already in hand?"... Read More
Benji is a thick, bold, hand-crafted font great for products, branding, crafts, and so much more! The characters are all based on the same square shape, so they can stack vertically just as well as they can be typed horizontally. Just turn off the built-in kerning, and you have a great monospaced font!... Read More
Introducing UNITED SCRIPTS, a font made up of hand-written words instead of letters!
Every letter key you press will give you a unique hand-lettered name of a U.S. state. And the number keys and punctuation contain supporting phrases, so you can create a full hand-lettered design by pressing just a couple of keys!... Read More
Introducing Saboteur! I went old-school with this font, creating the letters with ink and paper. I used a folded pen, which is one of my favorite lettering tools.
Despite being a true ink-brush font, Saboteur is still craft-friendly! The letters are all solid -- no internal areas to weed out. And the edges have been smoothed and refined just enough to make the letters easy to cut out, while still retaining some of their original rough character.... Read More
Introducing Succulent, a new hand-lettered font! This double-uppercase, tall and skinny font has a fun bounce -- perfect for cute, fun, all-ages projects!
You'll also get Succulent Catchwords -- a set of small words like THE, AND, OF, and many more. And they aren't just in English -- there are also catchwords in Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese!... Read More
Simple, clean, and fun -- MacGuffin is like if Dr. Seuss and a highway sign got put in a blender and came out in font form.

Looking for a fun, hand-lettered font with a casual flair? Check out Limetta! With a fun bouncing baseline for the lowercase, a hot hand-lettered look to the uppercase, and heavy-to-heavier line weights, it's the perfect font for crafting, logo design, signs, and more!... Read More
Introducing Gray Skies, a new connecting script font! It all started with the letter Y -- instead of a loop at the bottom, I drew a kind of zig-zag smiling-mouth shape. That weird loop ended up inspiring a lot of the other characters, and a new script font was born!... Read More
Scamper started out its life as a free winter font, with snowflakes in all of the letters. But I ended up loving the snow-less letters so much, I made some different versions!
Scamper now comes in 5 different styles: regular, heavy, outline, 3D, and of course, the original snowy version. But even those early free versions have been edited, cleaned up, and expanded with over 300 accented characters in each version for language support. The letters have been smoothed, but still keep s... Read More
I do a lot of double-uppercase fonts, so for a change of pace, here's a double-lowercase script font! Hallsey has one set of lowercase letters mapped to a-z, and then a full second set of lowercase letters mapped to A-Z. Mix them together for a hip, hand-lettered look!... Read More

But now they can be fun helpers for all your crafting needs! This is a double-uppercase handwriting font (two sets of uppercase letters, one set mapped to the uppercase and one to the lowercase) so you can mix and match letters within a word.... Read More
I've had many requests for more "guy" fonts: less swirly, heavier lines, with a splash of a backward tilt. As a result, here's Crispin! It's based on the real handwriting of a real guy, but it's great fun for all ages and genders!

Fattycakes is a cute, chubby, plump little font.
I've taken the style of my Rough Puff font, which has a distressed texture, and re-done the letters in a much smoother, craft-friendly style. Most fonts tend toward taller and narrower, so I like that this font is more squat and wide.... Read More
I've been told that serifs can sometimes be hard for crafters, because of the corners that various machines need to turn. So I've taken my crafting-friendly serif script Jumbuck, and turned it into a sans-serif script font!... Read More
I've made script fonts, and I've made serif fonts, but for some reason I was inspired to combine the two into a serif script. (Is that even a category? If not, it is now.) The end result is Jumbuck!... Read More
Monograms are cool, but sometimes they can be a bit too formal. Too fancy. Dare I say it? A bit stuffy. I wanted to create a monogram font that was a little lighter-hearted and fun, and Candlepin was the result!... Read More
Allspice is a tasty new font for all of your fun projects! It's a mixed-case font (uppercase and lowercase are all the same height) so you can mix and match letters within a word.
Plus, it comes with a full second font file with alternates, to give you even more options! Not only are the letters alternates -- all of the numbers, punctuation, and accented characters are alternates too!... Read More
I've bundled 8 of my fonts together to make one great mix-and-match package. You'll find something for every project in this bundle, from the sleek and elegant Virga to the quirky and goofy Tallsy Smalls. Plus, this bundle includes the 10-font Starch family and the 5-font Quintsy family, both of which contain great options for pairing with everything else!... Read More
Starch: Not only is it delicious (I'm looking at you, pasta and potatoes), but it's also slang for both something stiff and formal, and for backbone, moxie, and gumption. I figured that suited this font perfectly! The base is a crisp sans-serif, built on graph paper and refined with sharp lines and corners, but with a little hand-made flair to the curves.... Read More
Introducing Pinsetter, a set of three fun hand-lettered fonts that mix and match and snuggle together like one big alphabet family.
Both the Littles and Middles alphabets can stand alone on their own, or they can mix together. And the Talls are designed especially to cradle the Littles, so you can make fun combinations galore!... Read More
One set of source letters has given birth to bouncing baby quintuplets! In an effort to make a sans-serif font that would pair nicely with my new script font Virga, I went through several different iterations from the same original set of drawn letters.
I liked them all, so I'm bundling all five of these fonts up as a family. They're great supporting players, but they can also all stand on their own, and pair with each other!... Read More
Virga is an atmospheric phenomenon where it's raining, but the air is so dry that the rain doesn't reach the ground. It just gets absorbed into the air on the way down, causing a really cool drooping-clouds look.
Virga is also a connecting script font with smooth transitions and extra-fancy uppercase letters, for all of your elegant project needs!... Read More
Tallsy Smalls: a name inspired by a little cat who was able to get to the top of a very high bookcase. (Come on, cat people -- we all have 1,001 nicknames for our cats.)
This is a fun little font, cleaned up to the extreme so that every letter has smooth curves and sleek lines -- perfect for crafters! I liked the letters so much I made an additional set of them with tails, so there's a stylistic alternate set of connectors!... Read More
