When you’re seeking typographic inspiration for a project, where’s the first place you look? While some of you may immediately head over to Fonts.com (and we love you for that), we understand that most people start by browsing through the fonts they’ve already licensed. We get it. Purchasing type can be a major investment—before committing to something new, you want to make sure there isn’t something suitable already on your hard drive, or that any new designs you license have the usefulness to translate to future projects to justify the investment. Today we’re introducing a product designed to remove the purchase anxiety of licensing type—you can now instantly expand the size and selection of your type library, all without forcing you to make the major investment up front. Meet Fonts.com desktop font subscriptions!

The inventory pulls from Monotype’s renowned Monotype, Linotype, ITC, Bitstream and Ascender typeface collections, ensuring our desktop subscriptions offer the breadth to cover a wide range of projects. The subscription features all of the must have typefaces for your campaigns and branding work, such as the Neue Helvetica®, Avenir® Next, Trade Gothic®, Gill Sans® and ITC Franklin Gothic® families. As new fonts are released by these foundries, we’ll add them to the collection, giving you a resource that grows and stays fresh.
