Monotype’s Fonts.com Lets Customers Try Actual Fonts Before Buying

Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: TYPE), a leading provider of typefaces, technology and expertise for creative applications and consumer devices, has introduced the ability for Fonts.com visitors to experiment with desktop fonts for free. Fonts are temporarily installed through Monotype’s SkyFonts™ client, enabling users to work with actual fonts within documents for up to five minutes, before the data is retracted automatically.

“Experimenting with type has always been an integral part of the design process, and now we’ve taken it to a new level by allowing for typographic experimentation within real projects,” said Chris Roberts, vice president and general manager of Monotype’s e-commerce group. “We believe this is a major win not only for customers but also for our foundry partners, who can now more easily expose their designs to customers who can try them risk-free.”

“The SkyFonts trial feature is a real timesaver over traditional comping methods. There’s nothing like it for comparing a variety of fonts, particularly in immersive-reading text settings such as books and magazines, without the need or expense of licensing many fonts up front,” said Patrick Griffin of Canada Type, a typeface foundry that offers fonts on Fonts.com that can be used for font trials. “What could be better than an uncensored test drive right on your own machine, using your own applications right inside your own workflow?”

More than 30,000 products from 100 foundries are available for free trial, with more fonts expected to be added on an ongoing basis. Trials begin by clicking a “download a free trial” link from Fonts.com product pages or search results. Fonts are delivered automatically and synced across up to five workstations that operate the SkyFonts client.

Visitors require a free Fonts.com account to use desktop trials. Users will be prompted to create or log in to a Fonts.com account and to install the SkyFonts client, if it hasn’t been previously installed, upon clicking the “download a free trial” link. Built on Monotype’s patent-pending technology for temporary font installation, the SkyFonts client is a free, lightweight utility that runs in the background of a Macintosh® or PC platform.
